Who You Should Really Be Thankful For


“Have you had people who have touched you — not moved you in order to manipulate you — but touched you inside-to-inside? Take a minute to think of at least one person who helped you to become who you are inside today. Someone who was interested in you for who you really are … someone you feel really accepted the essence of your being. Just one minute … one minute to think of those who have made a real difference in your life.”

  1. Really good admonishment in such a beautiful and loving way. Thank you Joe.

  2. A beautiful thought, as a therapist I strive to be this person for a lot of adolescents I work with. Many of them have never felt true acceptance.
