If your mind isn’t working, throw it out.

If you feel that there is something wrong with you, it could be helpful to talk to a therapist who can listen to you until you come to understand that you’re really OK.

If you subscribe to therapy, you must believe that you are really OK.  The therapist will guide you through your mind and untangle the knot that is making you feel not OK. If you were not fundamentally OK to begin with, therapy would never work.

Therapy does work because we are all really OK. This is important to understand.  If you understand that you are OK, even when you are not feeling OK, then you will know that your problems are not you.  This knowledge gives you courage to wade into the uncomfortable feelings and know that you won’t get sucked into the undertow.

The real truth is that you are much better than OK. If it is difficult to see that, then you should throw out your mind.  If it is difficult to do that, try therapy.
