“Look, look!”, my son called out enthusiastically one morning.
We were in the backyard and he saw a beautiful butterfly fluttering around our orange tree.
He was so excited, like a toddler normally is when they see something interesting or new.
I turned to look and exclaimed, “Isn’t it beautiful?”
But he continued, repeating: “Look, look!!”.
Then I realised what he needed me to say: “It’s a butterfly!
What my son needed, was for me to name this beautiful creature.
This need for us to name things…to understand things, allows us to understand ourselves and others.
It helps us create meaning in our lives.
Are you feeling fine one minute and then overwhelmed and crying the next?
Are you able to name what you may be feeling right...
