The Compassionate Way

In the middle of the clutter bust, my client got frustrated with her efforts and said, "It's not done, it should be done."

I said that's the clutter. Her being frustrated with her efforts was not serving her. It wasn't helping her let go. It made her feel like something was wrong with her. I said that wasn't true. She was making efforts to remove the clutter.

I told my client that if she could stand outside of herself and notice her efforts as if it were another person, she could say that she is doing something to fix the problem. Rather than saying she's not doing enough, or it's not fast enough.

It takes the time it takes to heal a part of your life that is damaged in some way. This is the compassionate way to help yourself through difficulty.

My client felt better with her process, and we went back in to the clutter bust.
