Sometimes Life Can Suck
All kinds of bad stuff happens in life and there are times for everyone when life sucks.
I’ve worked with countless people over the years who have experienced all kinds of bad things: divorce, marital crises, deaths of loved ones, illnesses, losses of jobs, childhood losses, and even losses of chunks of childhood through abuse – sexual or physical – or the mental health problems of parents, and addictions.
What I do to help people through these things is to help them to identify and express where it is that they are now, and to make a transitional journey from there to a new stage of life – after sorting out their feelings and getting their bearings – so they can move on to a new life around things that matter most to them.
