Angel-A by Luc Besson

‘It’s difficult to love yourself when you cannot see your reflection.’

Beautiful piece with Rie Rasmussen and Jamel Debbouze, about how we need to (and how we learn to) see and love our own person. The context differs, but this catches the essence of therapy, at least as we practise it at this service.

Posting this for the men in our lives who – in the midst of personal and cultural storms – have lost sight of themselves and so cannot see their own beauty.

Thanks to Therese de Wolf for this, and to Mi Robin and The Mythic Café, with Charles de Lint & Company on Facebook for posting it.
