Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? I absolutely “love it” when people come to therapy and tell me they are sick and tired of being sick and tired. I get very excited. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired you are in the best place for change. But, it probably doesn’t feel like it is the best place for you to be. When you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, you are usually exhausted, at your wits end, feeling hopeless, angry and often having physical ailments. You may not be able to sleep, eat or work. Some people say they are sick and tired of being sick and tired but really they are not, not yet. The up side to being sick and tired of being sick and tired is that you are usually willing to try something different, something you haven’t tried before or something that is out of your comfort zone. The down side is that you can get stuck there. It is not a nice place to get stuck and you may turn to alcohol, drugs, shopping, gambling, relationships addiction and busyness to cope, not realizing that you are diverting and distracting your pain, whether it is emotional or physical.
In Katherine’s book, What Are You Here to Heal? A Self-Reflective Guide, she invites you to keep a journal to write down your thoughts as you read. The self-reflective guide will deepen your journey into the concepts and ideas outlined in her book. She talks about the difference between knowing something intellectually and knowing something on a cellular level. The guide makes it easy to explore the thoughts that are keeping you stuck, especially if you are sick and tired of being sick and tired or if you know someone who is. It is the perfect guide to complement your journey to end the suffering in the world—your world. Let your answers to the questions in each chapter guide you to a deeper conversation about why you are here and why love is the answer to every question—only, always.
