Goals For Me

I want to love you without clutching,
appreciate you without judging,
join you without invading,
invite you without demanding,
leave you without guilt,
criticize you without blaming,
And help you without insulting.
Virginia Satir

"Life is not what it's supposed to be.
It is what it is.
The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.”

“I believe the greatest gift I can conceive of having from anyone is to be
seen by them,
heard by them,
to be understood and
touched by them.”

Virginia Satir

“Every word, facial expression, gesture, or action on the part of a parent gives the child some message about self-worth.
It is sad that so many parents don't realize what messages they are sending. “
“Once a human being has arrived on this earth, communication is the largest single factor determining what kinds of relationships he makes with others and what happens to him in the world about him.”
“Adolescents are not monsters. They are just people trying to learn how to make it among the adults in the world, who are probably not so sure themselves.”
