How do you make choices?
We reflect on how complex a person is with feelings, thoughts, behavior, wishes, desires, memories and how they all react to each other and work together. We reflect on this by doing a small, specific assignment: choose part of a photo and finish it.
She immediately knows that she wants to choose this photo. It’s exactly like a memory from a few years ago. She and her husband on a bench, looking at the beautiful flowers. Her granddaughter runs across the square behind it and in the background a monument and a forest.
We discuss how to make choices. From feelings, from thoughts, from wishes or desires…
She chose the photo based on positive feelings that were triggered by a memory.
And while she works on the drawing, this memory is relived with the positive and warm feelings and thoughts that come with it. And so she has created a little oasis for herself in a difficult time.
