and so its worth putting up here because it resonates so closely with the work we do. Shame and this fundamental difficulty we all have with what it means to love oneself or accept oneself is a theme present somehow and somewhere in almost every session.

We live in a culture of the self... and finding that connection to a good enough self... seems like it should be so natural and easy... and it isnt.
