From Whole to Hole
So often in therapy, therapeutic or training groups when people become distressed or despairing they speak of entering a deep, dark place within themselves. A pit. A hole. A vacuum. Very often, a deep, dark, black hole. They feel terribly alone. Scared. Bewildered, often. frightened. Hopeless and helpless. Lost.
Very often this process of ‘entering the black hole’ or ‘going beyond the precipice’ is described as ‘falling apart’ or ‘going to pieces’. And it is way too scary a leap to take: what if I am unable to become whole again?
