Have you ever felt like there is a fight going on in your mind? Rest assured, this is a common experience. According to Timothy Gallwey, we all have at least two opposite voices within us, you can imagine them as two selves – Self 1 and Self 2.
I wrote a post yesterday (21 October) about a workshop to help those who recently lost their jobs to process the experience. One of the things we’ll address in that workshop is the need to ask for help, to speak about the emotions and to seek social support. To do that, we need friends and partners who are willing and able to support us through the process of grief. Most of us are willing to support our friends, but we may not have the skills. And we may inadvertently do more harm than good.
