If you don’t know already, I’ll tell you now: you were born good enough. It’s only your thinking, beliefs and fear that get in the way. Naturally, we all have strengths, weaknesses and flaws but the underlying question we seem to want answered is not really, ‘am I good enough to do A, B or C?’ but rather, ‘am I (me, the person) good enough in general? This kind of common thinking and self-doubt speaks to our sense of unworthiness and insecurity. For a range of reasons, many of us seem to live with an overwhelming feeling of inadequacy.
So, I was talking with a previous therapist today and inquiring about maybe working with her again. She told me that she was now using a new kind of therapy — CBT-E. It sounded familiar to me, but all I could recall off the top of my head was that it was one of those time-limited therapist… where you had 20 sessions or something. I would have googled it right then, but I was in the car and couldn’t.
