Liz was stuck in the trap of overwhelm. It seemed that there was always something to do, and not enough time to do it.
"I don't have anything huge happening in my life," she said, "but I feel like all of these little things add up and make me feel less like ME. I just want things to feel easier."
Liz and I talked about what it would feel like if things were easier. We didn't discuss the details of how, but played with the feeling of more ease.
She took a deep breath and then started to describe moving through her day without having things bother her so much.
