avatar the cult of bea & sam

this was my favorite moment two days ago. i was on the phone with bonny (my therapist slash inuit) and she says:

“you know amy, your mom & dad were just like cult leaders. now you need to get deprogrammed.”
whoa.
okay, let’s all take a breath while i repeat that again:
“you know amy, your mom & dad were just like cult leaders. now you need to get deprogrammed.”

so i ask: “well, whatdya mean, bonny?”

and she says: “you know all those negatives in your head, that play over & over & over, all those you can’t, you shouldn’t, don’t do that, you’re not good enough … all of that crap … all of those thoughts came from them; their fears, their doubts, all of their worries. and they instilled them in you and they became your thoughts. it’s time to get rid of those thoughts, that way of thinking. it’s called deprogramming.”

straight to the heart.

    Also, called letting go. Not sure you need deprogramming because once you understand where all that crap came from you can just breathe and recognize they did the best they could and it just wasn’t good enough and good enough is all you need to be for yourself. Just my two cents after years of therapy and now free from therapy and all the other crap.
