Laugh and Learn webinar – one hour can change everything

I woke up this morning, and in my head I was arguing with a former therapist. Not my therapist. One my friend had gone to see 20 years ago.

I still remember the stupid thing he said,

“Some people use humour to deflect their true feelings.”

Well I think therapists deflect their lives away by asking questions like, “How does that make you feel?”

And if you respond with, “I feel like making a joke” it is not an acceptable answer.

They want you to ooze self pity with a side dish of weeping so they’ll feel like they’re getting through to you.

I’m not opposed to sobbing. My kidney’s are very close to my eyeballs, but after it’s over and done with I find a good belly laugh raises the Seratonin levels enough that I can walk by an oven without wanting to stick my head in it.

My point is he wasn’t my therapist. He was hers. And 20 years later, I’m holding a grudge against someone I never actually met.

Does your brain work like that?  You wake up to a whole committee of yahoos rattling around in your attic?  On any given day, I might have corrupt banking officials,  a guy I dated in my 20s who still hasn’t given me back the 100 bucks he owes me (You know-good old whatshisname?) and most of the United States Senate. These are just a few of the folks taking up space in my overcrowded memory bank.

These folks don’t pay rent. Or taxes but they are walking around thinking they own the joint. And maybe they do, since some of them have been there so long I’m sure they have squatters rights.

I decided that I have to let them go this year. I gave them eviction notices.  As of today I served them their 60-day notices.

(In order to legally evict them I told them I was having relatives move in-it’s the only way you can evict people in the winter)

And yes, I am lying to phantom folks, but that is for another blog.

Do you have people that you let run the show in your head? Are they taking up too much space in your head? What ways do you use to let go of all that old thinking?
