Therapy is awesome. It’s also elaborate & extensive. It’s a terrific option for finding out why things are the way they are and for better understanding the stuff that comes up for us when triggered, etc. It often involves a look at the past. Life Coaching is all about the future. What is your goal, what’s in the way of your goal, and how do we get around that obstacle?
So having it called Christmas Jukebox allows for me to let it skip around. And that, I think, was probably the biggest challenge. It wasn't so much that the songs sounded different, but allowing it to make sense conceptually, which I think it does when you look at it as a jukebox of five different tracks.
We settled into this false reality that we didn’t deserve it and we weren’t valid— that everyone else, all the straight kids deserved it more and they deserved love. That we didn’t deserve to live out loud and have our families know what was going on because what we were doing was "shameful." It's bullshit!
