  • Jul 4 2012: 1. I learned as a therapist to assume nothing; we all experience life differently, so what I may perceive as a problem is not necessarily a problem for someone else. You need to get out of your own way to be a real listener.
    2. You can't want more for a person than they want for themselves.
    3. One thing Buckminster Fuller said we need to learn from children is to remember to ask the big questions. This is, I think, essential in maintaining a sense of wonder.
    4. Perspective can save your life.
    5. What's said can't be unsaid.
