Are You an Expert at Suffering?

I spend a lot of my day convincing my clients they are wrong.

They don’t concede easily.

They fight for their limitations, their problems, their suffering.

They are so good at “doing” their problems, they don’t want to give them up.

They have practiced them for years.

They have owned them like family heirlooms.

They have lead with them in friendships, therapy sessions, and journal entries.

It’s hard for them to let go. To be wrong.

But eventually I show them that sucking at suffering is a good thing.

Letting go of expertise in specific long-held problems is one of the biggest reliefs to experience.

It’s okay to be wrong.

Be wrong for your own sake.
