You know I teach a university class on counseling. One of the techniques we get to eventually is this thing called the empty chair.
That’s a powerful and emotional experience.
It’s basically where you have the client sit in a chair facing an empty chair, and they have a dialogue a conversation with somebody they might not otherwise.
Something in their life that is unfinished business, and they start talking with that person as if they were in the room.
It kind of ties up the loose ends.
Exactly. Unfinished business really does distract us from living fully in the present.
Friend, think about that in your own relationship. What loose ends do you have that are calling for your attention keeping you from living fully in the present?
