A few years ago I read a joke: "Fish don't know they're in the water". The scenario is that Fish Number One asks Fish Number Two, "How's the water?" Fish Number Two responds, "What the hell is water?". The fish who is "in" the situation (hence the water) does not even realize its surrounding. Second what surrounds you is only normal because it's what you know. I got another one that I recently came across: "We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are." This references to dream analysis but it basically mean that our preconceptions can dramatically alter the way we perceive the world. (Quote is by writer Anais Nin).

MEET DR. BROWNING -- "Wtih all our patients, we equip and empower them with the tools they need to get from overwhelmed to overcomer, using practical Biblical wisdom that leads to real change and victory in their personal struggles, and in their most important love relationships. Our focus always aims at finding lasting solutions.We do this in what we call Mindset-Reset Therapy (MRT)™. Throughout my career as a therapist I've observed that many forms of counseling produce changes that don't last over time. Why? Because the focus is on problems instead of finding simple choices and solutions for major and dramatic breakthroughs.

It would be my privilege to come alongside you in that difficult place.
