Therapy School

Hi friends, in case you haven't heard, I'm back in school, getting my Masters in Counseling. I'm only going part time and I haven't "dropped" anything from the rest of my life. As a result of still continuing to teach, regular classes and teacher training, doing BEST and private yoga, I can occasionally feel a little over-articulated. My voice is often froggy.

I've given myself an "out" from tipsandtricks. I do intend to continue to contribute, hopefully even twice a week, maybe even still on Tuesdays and Fridays, maybe on other days. It's good for me to give myself an out. In learning about Behavior Therapy this week in school, it was good for me to learn the underlying principle of Assertiveness Training: "people have a right but not an obligation to express themselves."

I also just recently learned in Al Anon that "people have a right not to change." This was news to me since I'm always Changing McChangerson. One way I'm choosing to change more and more is to be gentle with myself, and although I love writing tipsandtricks, the way I relate to writing it is changing. This is not goodbye, more like, "maybe I'll see you on Wednesday instead of Tuesday."
