Words are important however not everyone is good with words. So sometimes we need to be able to look not just at the words but at the meaning behind them. Our motto, "Peace Through Knowledge" refers to how increasing our awareness and learning about life, others, and ourselves can bring us peace, and yes, even happiness. We know words build worlds, however, words cannot help those who will not listen or look more deeply into the meaning in the words, and in the case of this blog, those who will not read.
At Serenity we hope that if any blog is ever unclear, that the reader will message us. How many times in life have you had a misunderstanding with a friend or loved one? Maybe they used the wrong word or phrase and the meaning was lost behind the words. Perhaps you have been the one whose words were unclear to the other person.
Our therapists work on "invisible wounds". We can't see the hurt and the damage that words have caused you. We rely on honest feedback and comments from you to ensure we are helping you heal. So here's to Serenity's blog! Sometime the wording might not be just the way we would want it but hopefully the meaning behind the words will be clear.
All of us at Serenity are willing to help. The question now is, are you willing to accept the help? Our next blog will be in words and relationships.
