In my work with people, there's one question that I have heard over and over- particularly from women. Countless times, I've heard them wonder out loud,
“Am I crazy?”
Most of the time when we ask this question about ourselves, there's a lot going on in our lives. We have a lot of options and we worry that others won't support or understand our decision. We boldly go where others don't. We stay in difficult relationships because we love the person. We may not know what to do next. We may be so filled with pain or grief that we question our own sanity.
But regardless of what may be going on in our lives, whenever we ask that question, we need reassurance. We need to know the answer to, “Am I crazy?” And just what others think we want to hear. We need an honest, true answer that we can rely on.
Each time I am asked this question by one of my clients (or friends or family members or anyone else I come across), I always give this same answer, and I'm going to share it with you in this video….
And just in case you don't believe me…last week I was a conference on grief. The presenter is renowned for his work on death and holds a PhD and an MD (talk about smart). Dr. Raymond Moody gave the same response! : )
So next time life has you down, and you find yourself wondering whether or not you may be crazy, remember, “If you're asking the question- you're not!”
