Time for a poem

The land of lost content

Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.

A. E. Housman

A sad reflective poem. It is true that we can never go back. If we try, then it is the never same or as we remembered. But whilst we can never go back, we can go forwards. The longer we allow the past to control our present, then moving forward become very difficult. In order to move forward, we have to somehow find peace with the past and ourselves. And then those “happy highways where I went and cannot come again.” May become,

“Those happy highways where I will go again.”

About Derbyshire Counselling Service

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor who started working in the field in 1990. I have been seriously ill and almost died from an eating disorder. Anorexia was my best/worst friend for so long. Now it has gone and its time to start again. I want to help others eat their illness. I offer a unique service as i can truly empathise with my clients and help them in a way that almost every other counsellor can not. I saw so many other people suffering so painfully and desperately and i witnessed and suffered some terrible treatments by healthcare professionals. I truly would like to let the world know how much we suffer in silence and try and and these indignities. I was ill for 20 years but my sense of altruism remains as fresh as ever
