Quite often clients will tell me about the things they think they have done wrong in their life and what they think they should have done differently to get it ‘right’.
Having a black and white divide can be unhelpful and a barrier to seeing the whole picture. So when I came across this saying I thought it summed up perfectly what I hope happens as part of therapy.
See you there.
‘Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.’
– Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi, Sufi poet and philosopher (1207-1273)
