A small, but important change was for me to realize that I need to think and better understand the request before I sign myself up for a project. I also realized that it is not always good for me, or others, to say yes.E.K., non-profit executive, Washington, DC

I think I have something powerful to share. Now that I am getting more comfortable with how to channel it [my gifts], without triggering all kinds of insecurities about not being good enough, or being too competitive or bossy, I am just plain glad that I have it (my knowledge, passionate interests, sense of being alive and excited about it!). I am beginning to feel OK about asking for help. R.H., college professor, MA

You made 3 significant impacts where I critically needed to change my approach to things. Namely, they are the following.

  • Accepting life s setbacks, as well as changes in loved ones attitudes, and seeking new sources of joy and companionship independently.

  • Enjoying travelling, dining and the arts without necessarily having a companion.
