What can you do?

I came across this passage years ago. I had liked so much I had written it down in a favorite notebook. Sometimes, things in our lives turn up at the exact right time. What a nice reminder of the power of what we can do for ourselves. Enjoy!

From the book: Inside Therapy Story: The Taboo Scarf

“Owing to an eggs shape, a beast banging on it from the outside will have great trouble breaking it open. But the slightest tap from inside the shell can shatter it; when the chick is ready it can pop our and get started. Nature in its selective wisdom thus favors the new generation…By the same token, a patient, any patient, tapping even lightly, can accomplish more personality change than even the best therapist working alone from the outside.”

Be well,
