Bahasa means 'language' in Indonesian. I see the process of being in therapy is like learning a new language. The more we practice, the more fluent we become. Once we've become fluent in the language, we then seek out people who can speak the same language. I see mental health and relationship from a similar lens. Once we are able to practice self-attunement and care for ourselves, we seek out people who are able to respect and care for us in the way that we respect and care for ourselves.
