i went to the bookstore yesterday to look for books for work. every now and then i go and peruse the shelves looking for information on some of the things that our clients struggle with. i literally scan every book in the self-help section...so, this can take me a while.
and i have noticed something quite interesting. the people that come into the section seem so embarrassed. yesterday, a man pulled his hood up when he walked onto the aisle. one lady walked really fast and looked over her shoulders before she would pick up a book.
it was sad. i want to say to them, it's ok...every struggles. everyone needs help from time to time. counseling works!
but i didn't. i just took my books on self-harm and grief to the check-out and wondered what the lady checking me out thought.
