The lesson I learned…

Focus on the bad.

I thought the key to happiness was getting rid of the negative.

The junk from your past.

The annoying stuff in life that you don’t want to deal with.

The things that make you sad, or mad, or disappointed, or hurt, or embarrassed, or disrespected.

When you go to a therapist, you talk about your problems.

You examine your past.

How you got here.

What made you, you.

What brought you to this moment in time.

All the things you need to get over or let go of,

so that you can be happy,

or at least stop being unhappy.
