What Some do to Themselves

In social environments, people often compare themselves to others.  During these instances, the inner critic may point out their inadequacies.  The reason why is because they set their standards just out of reach.  Periodically, people meet these standards, but the inner critic directs them towards those instances when they were not met.

The Value of Habits

When we become sad, angry, or melancholy, our mind is telling us something is amiss.  The body does the same thing when it becomes ill.  The mind follows the patterns that have been laid down.  These patterns may include misusing food, alcohol, and drugs as coping strategies, or any number of unhealthy behaviors that perpetuate life dissatisfaction.  When we become aware of poor habits, we have an opportunity initiate life changes.  We can exchange dissatisfying habits for those that bring life satisfaction.

Did You Know...

The desire for attention is natural.  However, we are often afraid to speak up.

Online sessions demonstrated improvement in self-esteem levels and a sense of coherence in those diagnosed with ADHD.
