what doesn’t kill you


This commonly used statement is one I both love and despise. I agree that challenges can make you strong but I disagree that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Sometimes, many times, what could kill you, leaves you with many holes and hollows that can never be filled; and the parts of you connected to the bones that were once fractured (but didn’t kill you), leaves you more vulnerable and fragile than ever.

What could (and should) make you strong, shouldn’t have the capacity to kill you.

I'm a woman living in London and this blog captures what lands within my sight and connects with my psyche. I expect it to evolve naturally. It is a place I shall visit from time to time and where things that I am touched by deeply will find a soft place to land. As a psychotherapist and a continuing student, most of the articles you shall find here will somehow, in some way, be related to therapy and well-being. I love comments, so feel free to add yours, whenever and however. I wish you well.
