Went to see my father today. Upon return I recalled when my father was my age and I was my son's age (6). I remember like it was yesterday. Its amazing how the Creator of the universe has given us signs for reflection, even among our own selves. Its important that we spend the little time we have with family first, then with those that are poor and in need, then rest of the short time we have should be exhausted on finding ways to make this world a better place for all human beings.
There is no magic cure that a "Therapist", "Life Coach", "Motivational Speaker", or a "Psychologist" has. What we have are the methods/approaches to change your perception and ultimately your behavior. In other words, we have "life skills" that are tailored to your needs so that you might respond positively and effectively to your daily life. They can work short term and long term because just like the river, we're ever flowing and changing creatures. What worked at one point might not work again and so the perception and life skills might need to be revisited. Successful cure is in finding your content spot (being at peace with the circumstances and able to live life the way you want to) and that is where you will find the answers.
