Musings from the therapist’s chair

Don’t change the edge, let the edge change you. The edge of things is where growth happens. Take the edge of the river where it meets the land; different species meet and change and nourish each other. Yet we change that edge by building into it, on it, and beside it. What if we let it, the edge, change us by seeing it and letting it be? The same is true for people, we have growing edges that need to be nourished and left to grow, rather than manipulated and changed into what we think others want us to be. Benton Lutz is a psychotherapist in private practice in Beaufort.
