How to feel better about yourself; like everything it’s easy when you know how and with hindsight.
Making people feel better is easy. You just have to remove a need. I’m stressed, my only option is a distraction (insert: food; drink; night out; sex) I feel better. I don’t feel good and I certainly don’t feel great.
Making people feel good is a little tougher, but it’s not rocket science. The key thing to remember is that not everyone is moved by the same desires and motives.
Making people feel great should be harder, right? But it seems it might be easier – you just have to be prepared to step aside. We tend to have a pretty good idea what makes us happy. If you can provide the environment for me to flourish and find my own fulfilment and act on my own desires, then you’ve made me feel great without having to do much at all.
Well that’s what good and effective therapy does. The therapist & you work collaboratively; s/he learns who you really are, helps you understand and accept yourself and become content.
