As a licensed professional counselor, a published author and co-owner of Dallas Whole Life Counseling I like to think I’ve learned a few things along the way. Here are just a few of the things that I have learned. They might surprise you…
- Wealthy people worry way more about money than non-wealthy people.
- Most people haven’t done the work to qualify for the relationship they think they deserve.
- A house is a box you live in. Fill it up with the latest gadgets, finest art, most comfortable furniture. Still just a box you live in.
- No one is coming to rescue you.
- The guy you’re dating you think might be cheating on you? He’s cheating on you.
- People who make perfect grades tend to get prestigious high paying jobs that they hate.
- Most friendships are based on competition as much as they are mutual interests.
- Whoever’s in the White House is not responsible for your road rage, your drinking too much or your avoidance of the gym.
- Your romantic partner’s criticisms of you? Mostly accurate.
- Whatever your current problems, they’ll resolve eventually, one way or another. Knowing this, can you relax in advance?
- Rescuers need victims just as much as victims need rescuers.
That is my list. What’s on yours? Share with me in the comments below…
