HERE'S HOW IT WORKS

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN AROUND A HAIRSTYLIST AND FELT A BIT UNCOMFORTABLE BECAUSE YOU WERE HAVING A BAD HAIR DAY AND JUST KNEW THE HAIRSTYLIST WAS SCRUTINIZING EVERY ELEMENT OF YOUR MISFORTUNATE STATE?

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ASKED BY A ROOM FULL OF EXECUTIVES AND ATTORNEYS TO TELL YOUR OCCUPATION, WHICH IS A WIDGET PACKER IN A LOCAL MANUFACTURING PLANT?

THESE ARE THINGS THAT GENERALLY BRING ABOUT SELF CONSCIOUSNESS, EMBARASSMENT, AND FEELINGS OF INADEQUACY. THERE ARE MANY MORE SCENARIOS THAT ARE SIMILAR BUT I THINK I GOT MY POINT MADE SO FAR.

THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE FEEL THESE THINGS WHEN THEY KNOW THEY ARE FACE TO FACE WITH A PSYCHOLOGIST. THERE IS A TENDENCY TO FEEL THAT EVERY WORD SPOKEN AND EVERY MOVEMENT MADE IS ANALYZED, ORGANIZED, AND SOME CONCLUSION DRAWN ABOUT THEIR MENTAL COMPENTANCY.

WELL, HERE IS A LITTLE REALIZED BIT OF NEWS. THE PSYCHOLOGIST HAS BEEN IN VIRTUALLY ALL SCENARIOS THAT HAVE MADE HER FEEL SELF CONSCIOUS, EMBARASSED, AND INADEQUATE. WE SPEND OUR DAYS LISTENING TO THE LIVES, WOES, AND ILLS OF PEOPLE AND THE THINGS THAT ARE ON THEIR MINDS. BUT WHEN AND TO WHOM DOES THE PSYCHOLOGIST GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT. WE ARE HUMANS WITH EVERYDAY LIVES, THOUGHTS, AND FEELINGS.

WELL THAT'S WHAT THIS BLOG SITE WILL BE ABOUT. THIS SHRINK JUST SHARING WHAT'S ON HER MIND, HER FEELINGS, HER OPINIONS, HER LIKES, HER DISLIKES, HER OBSERVATIONS, AND HER WISDOM (SUCH AS IT IS).

SO IF YOU'VE EVER WONDERED (OR NOT) WHAT IS ON THE MIND OF A SHRINK, HERE IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO FIND OUT.

You know people do think like that...your the teacher, the wise one. People look up to you and see you(your job)they don't see you the person. It must be hard to "just be you" without someone picking your brain for advise all the time. Policeman don't want to tell people what they do for a living...people never let him just BE, he isn't not a cop 24/7, but he's a man...just a man. What blessings people miss, when they don't remember that we are of many hats and just fresh and blood..all of us, The one who needs to hear them and heal them is Jesus. I learned that, from a good friend.
