I use the word “transformation” to describe changes in my life. It has been a powerful way to describe my evolving attitude towards my stuttering and understanding of mental illness.
I enjoy looking up words that are in my vernacular. The definitions of transformation bring further thought
- The urban dictionary defines transformation as When some thing turns into something else.
- The Merriam Webster dictionary provides a “simple definition,” a complete or major change in someone’s or something’s appearance, form, etc.
I can relate to being turned into something else as I grew to accept my stutter, and received help for depression. I’ve experienced major changes internally and externally in my journey.
As a mental health therapist who provides counseling to people who stutter, I witness transformation with my clients as they commit to the therapy process. The life changes that people experience often aren’t recognizable to themselves as they gain mental stability. Major changes happen as people work on self-esteem, anxiety management, regulating emotions and tolerating distress.
Transformation is happening all the time. Tell us how it’s happening in your life?
