About Me

  • I'm a retired professional man, living in the Midwestern United States. This blog is a personal blog and is not directly connected with my former professional practice (although I may draw upon my professional experiences, as well as my personal experiences, in writing my blog posts). This is a place for personal, not professional, opinions.

Let's see - you sought help from a therapist due to self-destructive behaviors, and she said you needed to "cut yourself some slack"? You were searching for something she could not provide for you, I suppose - and that was a search for meaning amidst all of your turmoil. A quest you may still be on, my friend, as we all are - but now it's rooted in your faith. And because you question and, at times, doubt - that doesn't mean your faith is any less. It means that you are seeking to grow deeper in your faith. This comment may sound trite - I don't know - but I just wanted to let you know that I do know exactly what you are talking about. Your story mirrors mine on so many levels.


It's not surprising that you get this post. The parallels in our life experiences are a shared bond and, of course, as a therapist, you understand the limits of the help you can offer human beings. We're all pilgrims, not made for this Earth, but on a journey to eternity. We're all searching for meaning, whether or not we admit it to ourselves. You and I believe that the source of that meaning is found by focusing upward and others that it's found by focusing inward. Late nights are always dangerous hours for self-doubt, but it's a new day. Thanks for taking the time to comment, and to still read after all these years.
