Depressing Things We Say


  • “You never know……”
  • “What next!”
  • “Here we go again”
  • “It’s always something!”
  • “Whatever….”
  • “Beats me….”
  • “I can’t win!”
  • “For crying out loud!”
  • “Son of a bitch!”
  • “Oy vey!”
  • “For the love of God!”
  • “Sue me!”
  • “Gag me with a wooden spoon!”
  • “They shoot horses, don’t they?”
  • “Life sucks.”
  • “Life is short, and then you die.”
  • “Why bother?”
  • “Who cares?”
  • “You can’t trust anyone!”

How often do you say things like this, and what does it do to your mood?

About Susan Lager

ABOUT ME Susan Lager, LICSW, BCD I grew up in New Rochelle, a suburb of NYC, lived in Manhattan for ten years during college and graduate school, and escaped the madness for the wilds of Maine to be with Thom, the sweet man I'm still married to after 34 years. (We have an awesome 29 year old son named Alec who will run the free world someday). I knew I'd survive the relocation from New York when I discovered the scenic, historic little city of Portsmouth, on the coast of New Hampshire, with its winding streets, great restaurants, and music everywhere. I was especially thrilled to attend the Portsmouth Psychotherapy Institute, an offshoot of the B.I.P., where I did post-graduate training, and then went into private practice creating The Couples Center PLLC, doing psychotherapy, with individuals, couples and groups. In 2010 I opened a division of the practice called COUPLESPEAK™, providing live and online coaching, training programs, workshops, and written materials for people in different kinds of partnerships. I'm still passionate about the work, which is NEVER boring! My clients are courageous pioneers, and they've taught me lots I'll pass on......
