In touch with my inner self
My therapist told me the best thing I could do for my problem(s) would be to get in touch with my inner self. I've never tried that before, but I thought . . . why not?
So I went to a quiet corner of our home, sat down on the floor and opened the channels of communication.
"It's me, your outer self, I've been advised to get in touch with my inner self."
"Forget it. I'm not interested."
