I’ve been taking a little time off from the psych literature devouring reading over the last couple of weeks to re-focus my attention on a memoir manuscript written by an incredibly talented young writer that I had put aside a few months ago in order to complete some ‘mandatory work-related reading’. Needless to say then that lately I haven’t been consuming as much mental health and wellness information of which I am all to eager to pass along to you, my good and faithful readers. Thus I felt it necessary to do a bit of perusing around on the good old world wide web for some inspiration for today’s post. During my wander a couple of things popped out, but it wasn’t until I found myself gasp out loud and exclaim “Oh. My. Goodness! Oh. Boy.”, as I sat there alone in my office that I knew I’d come across something really must-share worthy. It’s actually a quote and it goes a little something like… actually, it goes exactly like this:
“What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it’s supposed to be.”
I think my cheek is actually a little red from getting smacked in the face with this one.
