Scrolling through an online feed, I came across this inspirational quote, “Be kind to others, even when others can’t be kind to you.”

It was complete with a clean font and a scenic background. On immediate reflection, that’s a nice piece of advice.

However, I have more than one client who is working on setting better boundaries because they are too nice to others at the expense of themselves.

They care for others in a way that is depleting and disrespectful of themselves. For them, they are working on setting boundaries and using the word they dread: “no.”

For them, that inspirational quote actually points in a direction which is not helpful and will actually deepen their inner imbalance. (more…)

I run a meditation group at my office twice a week. Not too long ago, someone lamented after a session, “I couldn’t relax, I kept hearing the ticking of the clock – it was so distracting!”

Recently a client asked me to introduce him to meditation.

After I explained the basic ins-and-outs of it, he asked, “So it provides relief? That’s why people do it?”

I chuckled at this question, as it was trying to apply a goal-oriented mindset to something that inherently is a process.

I’ve had many clients come in my office and in speak on how the current political and social climate is affecting them either directly or indirectly.

Regardless of their individual beliefs, the seemingly endless and omnipresent conflict is wearing them down. Many clients want to retreat into their own worlds, and cut themselves off from everything.

That makes sense; it is a basic survival mechanism to avoid conflict and seek shelter.

This approach, however, does nothing to resolve the conflict.
