Collaboration is at the core of our biology and our DNA. All parts of us need to work together. Every time our parts are not collaborating, we are unhealthy.
When a part of us is not collaborating, our mind will tell us to remove it, hoping things will get better. In some rare cases, this could be a good option. Yet most of the time, we need to step back and get a broader view. The process of collaboration is a process of integration, not separation. Integration requires clarity and compassion.
If we don’t learn anything about ourselves through the process of collaboration, we are simply not collaborating. Do you need to fine-tune how you collaborate within yourself and with others? If yes, what needs to change?
With much love,
Our article “What discomfort can teach you” co-authored by Shari Gootter and myself was featured in Counseling Today.
In this article, we show you how taking a deeper look at our relationship with comfort and discomfort provides us insight on our path toward acceptance and happiness.
