Peeling back the layers of an onion. It’s a metaphor for life and growth that might not be perfect but never gets old.
As you might know, my life has been dedicated to mind-body healing.
Growth on a deep level.
Investigating those things that hold us all back from getting the life and love we want.
The most poignant part of the onion metaphor for me is that peeling onions can sting and make you cry.
With every layer of adult defenses we peel back, we can potentially face great pain and lots of tears.
But it’s worth it, because life, just like an onion, is so tasty when it's outer layer has been peeled way and we decide to use it in a way that is totally different from how it started.
With life, it seems it’s only in the unpeeling (discovering), chopping (analyzing), and making us cry (healing) that we learn, grow, and become our true selves.
Is it uncomfortable? Hell yes, just like peeling and chopping an onion can be.
Is it worth the discomfort?
