Marriage and The Happily Ever After

This is my second column for theswaddle.com –¬†http://theswaddle.com/marriage-happiness-happily-ever-after/

I’m always fascinated about how people approach marriage as a cure for unhappiness. My perspective about self-love, marriage and happiness.

Would love to hear your perspective on it.

Therapy Tales

Sometimes I feel there are so many stories of pain, struggle, hope and resilience buried deep within me.These are tales, that clients have trusted me with and they are sacred.I’m sure clients wonder,what do I do with them.They continue to live a silent life within me and no one has access to them.I remember,when I was in college,a friend of me would tell me how I love listening to stories.Somehow in psychotherapy, I do that.When people ask me, what do I do,I say, I listen.I create a facilitative environment where people can share and be themselves. It’s a privelege to be trusted.Sometimes,when clients walk in the room, with their pain,all I can see is the strong will power to recover and hope.I see courage that each client brings in,every time, they choose to share their deepest buried secret.I owe gratitude to them and that’s why I let the story lie deep within the recesses of my mind and soul.
