kb made a comment about assuming that struck a chord with me.
the core of my work as a therapist is knowing that the people that come to me for help know what they are experiencing.
i have no clue until they begin to get comfortable enough to begin to tell me what is going on.
i get some clues early on about how they do what they do, but if i assumed from the begining that they should go into box a or box b, then i would stop listening for what they had to say and fail to get to the bit about helping them.
i saw a great name for a high school the other day.
every day for years those students have to eat, sleep and drink that word in as they grow and learn.
