OUR SOCIETY IS ON THE RIGHT TRACK

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


Historically our society in the 1940s and 1950s was stuck in Stage I denial. We denied or minimized our problems as individuals and as a society. "We don't have any problems with sexism, racism, or keeping up with the Joneses." Then, during the next generation in the 60s, 70s and 80s, Stage II rebellion and blame took center stage. "You are causing my problems. You should fix yourself so that I can be happy. It is all someone else's fault why I get so many sour lemons in my life."


Happiness and unhappiness don't just happen to us. Happiness is a choice. Most believe otherwise.

Now in the mid-1990s, the possibility that all those lemons need to be made into lemonade is starting to enter the consciousness of millions. We are now as a society proceeding into Stages III, IV, and V, the stages where our lemons are made into lemonade. These stages are where we individually choose to resolve our difficulties (lemons) whether anyone else makes any changes at all. It is possible and very freeing. Shirley MacLaine has done wonders for our society with her spotlight on spirituality, Roseanne too with her widespread talking about the secrets of abuse.
