THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY

The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.


To change the world out there, we need first to change our own actions in our own groups. To effectively change our own groups we need to think more globally. How does my group appear to outsiders? (If your group regularly offends the 80% of white males friendly to your cause, is that productive for your group today?) As individuals our local actions need to include stopping our going-along with "the way we did it last time" and our blaming-of-others game.


Hatred and anger can be exorcised and left behind, if felt and expressed as suggested in this book. Avoiding them forever, leads to forever stress.

We need to voice our opinions to tone down the rabid radicals within our groups. This will not be easy. But it is worthwhile for two reasons: (1)our self-esteem will be heightened and (2)our group's effectiveness will be improved.


Sometimes our busyness with our special group(s) can obscure the truth that we are all citizens of the world.
