The Diamond of Innate Health
Within us all is a diamond. This diamond represents our innate resilience and wellbeing. It is the core of who we are.
Over our lives we can cover it over with stories, and thoughts. We cover our diamond with crap and lose sight of who we truly are.
Then we step into the world frightened that others will judge us on the crap and we attempt to cover that crap over with nail varnish.
Terri Broughton, a former headteacher, has been sharing this metaphor with children and young people, indeed it was pivotal in her life too. At the Coaching Connect conference she starts by sharing a poem from one of her former students.
When you see me, what do you see?
Is it me someone you want me to be?
Do you see what I see?
How do you want me to change?
And what makes you think I’d rearrange my life for you?
You don’t know me.
I don’t know me.
