the power of yet.
If there is one word that I love using in therapy and in life, it is "yet."
I think that we all pick up messages along the way that we're 'good' at doing some things and 'not good' at doing others. We label ourselves or other people as creative, clever, or 'good' at sport, as if these become your identity - you are either creative and clever or you're not.
Adding the word "yet" to the end of our sentences changes everything. It gives us permission for not having it figured out already. It gives room to improve; it reminds us that we can still learn and develop.
Take a moment to reflect how the word "yet" can change things for you. Think about how it might also change your expectations of your friends, your partner, and your children.
