"Can't You Just Get Your Sh*t Together?"

A few months ago I was watching an episode of "Chelsea Lately". If you don't know who she is, she's a tell-it-like-it-is comic that hosts B list celebrities. She was interviewing a woman who was the star of her own reality show and the woman mentioned that the producers of her show hired a life coach for her. Chelsea says, "Do people really have life coaches? Can't people just get their shit together?"

My first reaction was that I was a little insulted by this! But then I realized, if people really could get it together, there would be no therapists, psychiatrists, nutritionists, personal trainers, closet organizers, financial planners, etc. The list goes on! So, I guess the answer is no, we can't get it together! I'm the first to admit there have been times in my life where I couldn't get it together and needed some help! Nobody is perfect, we all need a little help once in a while to keep us together, I guess even reality TV stars!

When I first went to psychotherapy grad school all my friends and family and me too! were like, "Good thing everyone is so f'd up. They'll need you!"

I love Chelsea Lately.
