Identity crisis or beautiful flow?

Below, a man reports he felt the ground shake because his hairline was receding. While this sounds pretty crazy, it’s is a common phenomena. Not due to balding, but due to a psychological threat to ones identity, i.e. who you think you are. Everyone has a self image, some are more rigid than others. But it’s not who you are, it’s just in your imagination. In physical reality, a person is a complicated process, a biological system of human cells and microbiota, a electro chemical process changing daily. In psycho-emotional reality, you’re an ego structure—a psychological construct like a hologram that can get stuck in a moment of time. When this structure is forced to change, walls can literally seem to turn to jello, furniture may wiggle or the ground shake. When letting go of being a twenty-something or a mom, an event like a wedding, going away to college or a divorce, some folks can become REALLY miserable resorting to all sorts of dysfunctional behaviors. This is a good time to visit a counselor who can help you move with strength, comfort and grace into the next stage of life—a natural and beautiful process of exploration and becoming who you truly are today!—MR
