LIFE IS LUMPY
The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.
Life is like lumpy gravy. Unfortunately, life-gravy has one
nasty habit. It keeps producing more lumps. You are the chef.
Your choices are to mash the lumps, chew the lumps, smooth the
lumps or avoid the lumps. Permanent avoidance of lumps makes
emotional, physical, and psychological symptoms worse.
|We generally do NOT choose our sexual preferences. We choose to act on them, but sexual arousal is rarely a choice for us. It is either there in certain circumstances or it is not.
hire an assistant chef (therapist) to help. If the lumps seem
impossible, or the same lumps keep reappearing, or you are
severely distressed by one or more of them, then you had best
stop avoiding your lumps. If your distress is mild, try this
book or others, talk to friends or join a support group.
If your distress is severe or self-help approaches prove
ineffective, you need to consider hiring a lump specialist
(i.e., a paid therapist) as an assistant.
|Celebration Time: If we are such a sexist society why do men vote as much as they do for women candidates? Why do blacks with a B+ high school average have a better chance than whites of entering college?|
