Why Carl Rogers is my Fav Therapist...
I use his method "unconditional Positive regard" everytime I speak to a client. You have to be willing to meet that person for who they are,wherever they are. Embrace them and love them for who they are before you can work on guiding them to be better. Self actualization is becoming the very best potential you that you can be.
Kim Ramsey, veteran DCS foster care worker and long time friend(we shared an office together for years) once told a disgruntled woman, "Go home, light you a candle, kick your feet up, put you some soothing bubbles in it, lay back and take you a long bath.(using the calmest voice ever) You will feel so much better." This woman was sold on this and I was trying not to bust out laughing. I remember thinking if it was only that easy. We got so tickled and she and I would laugh at this, however, baths are relaxing. Sometimes the most simple things in life are freedom and happiness...

Who is really completely accomplished? I mean how can any human ever be. Up until the last breath we all have room to learn, be better, and grow. We are all broken messes walking around praying to get through the day, embrace who you are and make the best of whatever life throws at you. I have been in dire pain before and literally busted out loud laughing. It works-KF
If your trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them, everyone has. Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a walk, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, walk around it, or go through it.. Michael Jordan
Don't ever let somebody tell you that you can't do something... Not even me... All right? You got a dream...You got to protect it. When people can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you that you can't do it. If you want something, go get it...period. -Pursuit of Happiness
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!” - Rocky
