Every time I do a therapy group, I witness people making personal breakthroughs.
Yesterday, I witnessed a group breaking through dozens of interesting subjects to choose “Breakthroughs” as the focus of the group’s work.
One of my breakthroughs is to ask the group certain questions about the topics that break through our discussions:
In case my writing isn’t legible enough to break through into your consciousness, here are my breakthrough questions from yesterday:
- What is your personal experience of breakthroughs?
- What are your personal obstacles to breakthroughs?
- What helps you with breakthroughs?
All the group participants broke through shyness, self-consciousness, and other obstacles to sharing in a group to describe inspiring breakthroughs.

What thoughts and feelings might break through, for you, regarding breakthroughs?
Do any of my other photos from yesterday — breaking through this post in chronological order — show breakthroughs?
I have some personal breakthroughs coming up soon, including:
- Presenting about a breakthrough service for patients at work today,
- Singing in front of a room full of people today and/or tomorrow, and
- Breakthrough heart surgery at the Mayo Clinic in September.
What music would you choose for this breakthrough post?
I wonder what comments are going to break through the internet (where you’re never weird, according to one of the book titles breaking through above).
Many thanks to all who helped me break through this 1277th consecutive daily post and to you — of course! — for all of your personal breakthroughs.
