I thought ‘if I just hold on, it will get better’—but when there are things out of your control, holding on doesn’t change anything. When I gave someone a chance, I did find someone who could help; it’s not about what you know—we can’t see our own blindspots—another person reflects it back and it works.” a veteran therapist with over 20 years’ experience Cathy S Harris, MSW, LCSW copyright 2011
