Yesterday, in therapy, somebody described feeling guilty about how good a friend they were to somebody else. We discussed how we humans tend to think of ourselves as all good OR all bad — in friendship, at work, with families, etc. — flipping back and forth between the two extreme judgments of ourselves.
I suggested that this person always think of themselves of a “good enough friend” no matter what, rather than getting caught in the trap of “all or nothing” thinking.
Is this post good enough?
It IS good enough, but I can make it better by adding all the photos I took yesterday.
It’s good enough, here and now, to let you know that last night’s therapy group chose to focus on the topic of “Happy/Happiness.” During that group, I drew the two pictures shown directly above AND I also wrote down the lyrics of this good enough song by Pharrell Williams:
I hope you know that any thoughts or feelings you share here are good enough for me.
Good enough thanks to all!
