• Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke

    I love this quote from the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. Live your way into the answer.

    So often when there are mental health struggles, particularly when there’s been attachment trauma, neglect and growing up in a homophobic and transphobic culture, it can be hard to see an end to our suffering and struggles.

    And I often have clients ask questions about their healing or their futures that I cannot answer.

    Why do bad things happen to good people?

    Is there a reason this thing happened to me?

    Why me?

    As a therapist, I do not claim to have all the answers or to know all the ripple effects that healing can have in one particular person’s life.

    The answer is often that we must live our way into the answers. We must learn to make sense of what we have lived through by continuing to live.
