Labor Of Love And Gratitude

Just finished watching and transcribing the interview with Shahroo Izadi (The Kindness Method) being interviewed by Steven Bartlett (Diary of a CEO). Incredible! I can’t recommend it enough, especially for anyone who has ever looked in the mirror and wanted to punch it or burst into tears. I’ve spent the last four days with them transcribing this and making the graphics. (I’ll finish this week.) Everything in bold after the intro will become a graphic eventually. This is one of about 14 so far.
I want to remember this.
"So then I had a session with my therapist and she said, “What if you never change?” And I was so angry, I can’t begin to tell you. And I’m not a particularly angry person, but I was really angry with her. Because I thought, “Well if I don’t change, then I never start living. I never start being nice to myself. What, that day never comes?” So I came out and started thinking about it, sort of entertained it. Long story short, spent a couple of weeks acting like, “I’m never going to change.” And I started doing the stuff that I was putting on hold. And then everything changed."
We need to take it as a challenge and prove him/her wrong. The adversity or offence or insult, whatever comes our way teaches us great life lessons.
