When we aren’t thriving emotionally, we shut down. If we aren’t invited back from this place through good care, our inner worlds grow static. Imagination stagnates, boundaries turn into walls, and we move through life rigidly defending ourselves from disruption. .

In class this week we talked about how the capacity for surprise is an indicator of how we’re doing as humans and as therapists. A healthy human is flexible, creative, and able have their own unique experiences apart from the convienient categories we can sometimes use to judge people. A good listener needs this same capacity- are you listening to someone with an expectation of what they will say, or are you genuinely open to receive what it is the speaker might be trying to communicate? .
