I get you

I get you when you laugh.

I get you when you are grumpy.

I get you when you are scared.

I get you when you are acting goofy.

I get you when you pout.

I get you when you are stressed out.

I get you when you are nervous.

I get you when you want to bury your head and run away from it all.

I get you when you unexpectedly break down into tears.

I get it when you want to yell.

I get it when you have reached the end of your rope.

I get it when you make an impulsive decision.

I get it when you make a mistake.

I get it when you feel like you can’t do it.

I get your grief.

I get your pain.

I get your smile.

I get your love.

And I embrace all of it…

Have you ever had someone communicate any of these statements to you? With words, an embrace, a look, or an action? 

It is such a powerful experience….a moment of validation. A moment of a trusted someone telling you that you are normal and that they accept you for who you are.

We do not always receive these statements but when we do they are something to treasure and to look back on in our moments of need. They remind us that we are acceptable and loved. That we are human. That we are worthy.

These are statements that we do not only receive but that we also have the ability to give. As a therapist and as a person, I have seen the impact of these statements on people. They prove that our words, actions, and presence do make a difference.

To sum it up….there is someone who gets you and there is someone who you get.
