My counselor today: “Let’s try an exorcise. I want you to think of a bird. The one you relate closest to.”
Me: “Okay.”
Her: “Okay now imagine you’re that bird, flying high ov— what’s wrong?”
Me: “Penguins can’t fly.”
Her: ”… okay so forget the bird. Let’s imagine a container.”
Me: “Mmkay.”
Her: “And this container is all yours. Exactly how you want it. Something made of the earth.”
Me: “So NOT Tupperware?”
Her: “No. A NATURAL material. Wood, stone, straw.. whatever NATURAL material you want.”
Me: “Got it.”
Her: “What is it?”
Me: “A picnic basket.”
Her: “…….. okay, no. It can’t have another purpose. It’s YOUR container. Made of NATURAL materials. For only ONE purpose. Which is to house all of the chaos and noise that’s crowding inside you right now.”
Me: “hm.”
Her: “What?”
Me: “Lid’s jammed.”
Her: “… We’re out of time.”
