Counseling the Counselor

Counselor. Mental health things. Destroyer of stigma and promoter of equality. I always root for the underdog. Laughter is my medicine.

There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.

10 Things that can Wreck your Life

onlinecounsellingcollege:

1. Not living in the moment. Always wishing you were somewhere else, doing something different with other people.

2. Blaming your problems on your past. Although the past affects us, it need not define us. We can choose, decide and act – and take control of our lives. Don’t let the heartache from…

being alone never felt right. sometimes it felt good, but it never felt right.

—Charles Bukowski, (via kushandwizdom)

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”

—Elizabeth Gilbert (via kushandwizdom)

Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.

—Shel Silverstein
