“Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe. No less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.”
In my professional career to date, I have come to witness how our past and current day societal values and beliefs have impacted the psychological well-being, both in positive and not-so-positive ways, on our adult population. More and more, I see adults that are often wondering, pondering and becoming introspective with their understanding of self in relation to their environment/social relationships. The intent of “being the best one can be” is admirable without question, however at times our best intentions can have problematic actual effects within ourselves and with others.
