BEING TRUE TO YOURSELF CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Many of my patients tell me that they feel that there is nothing that they can do to make a difference in the world.  I encourage them to [just] be themselves and do what they believe is right. Over and over I have seen that how people live their lives and the choices that they make, influences other people and how those people live their lives.  When we are being true to ourselves and what we believe, this can change other people's lives.  You may not be able to tell that you have helped others, but you will feel more connected to other people and to yourself.
