“Therapeutic” – Gain insight into your Actions [sometimes called ‘behaviors’] and how they may be functioning as a direct result of Thoughts and Feelings
There’s a quote that says, “No one has to lose in order for you to win”.
Hmmmmm – are we sure about that?
Isn’t that sort of the whole purpose of the terminology? How can there be a winner without a loser, and vice-a-versa?
Interestingly, people often refer to our existence on Earth as a game – the Game of Life to be exact.
Why do you suppose that is?
I challenge you to consider that it’s because we have secretly [or not so secretly] decided as a culture that there ARE in fact Winners and Losers in the Game of Life.
And, let’s be honest, NO ONE wants to lose.
So what recourse do we have other than to smuggle as many resources as we can and trample over others on our way to the top? After all, there’s not room for all of us up there, right?
Just remember, being at the top and not having anyone to share it with makes you the Loser.
This Therapeutic Thursday, I challenge you to reflect on how you interact with colleagues, siblings, and anyone else with who, you may feel an inherent rivalry or competition. Decide which elements of that competitive nature help you to be a kinder, stronger, more productive member of your group. If you can’t find any…reconsider your position.
