A chrysalis is the transformation life stage of a butterfly. The duration of this stage is different for each type of butterfly, lasting weeks, to months, to even years. Humans are always changing and growing, but sometimes the learning curve can be quite steep.
The butterfly’s struggle to emerge from the chrysalis strengthens the wings to fly. We too must overcome challenges to have the strength to survive and thrive in the world.
The challenge of liberating ourselves from depression, anxiety, or just being “stuck” enables us to live out our new freedom. Counselling is a bearing witness of this becoming.
