I attended a counseling conference with two other people this past weekend. We met with a panel of five highly experienced counselors, and they covered a lot of ground. I found it to be interesting because I learned a lot about myself. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard myself tell my friends and family that I was an idiot for not knowing something sooner.
The only piece of advice I would give any newly-married couple just starting out is to listen to all the advice that the counselors are giving to them. Even if you know what good advice is, you must listen to it because no one can help you if you don’t. A counselor’s job is to help you figure out what is going wrong in your life and how to fix it. If you don’t listen to that advice, you are just setting yourself up for failure.
One thing that you should know about counselors is that they never say what they don’t know. But there’s always that one little piece of advice that you just didn’t think about, and so you go out and do it. A counselor will give you that little piece of advice because they are not supposed to. A counselor is a human being, and human beings are not supposed to give you advice unless you ask for it.
Thats right, I said it. A counselor is supposed to listen to you and then advise you. I have also heard it said that if you are not willing to listen to their advice, then you are just setting yourself up for failure. This is one of the things that I have learned from my counseling teachers. When I am sitting there in a session and they say something that I dont want them to say, then I just go and do it.
My counselor had this wonderful idea: If I told her that I was going to get married, she would be so happy. I would be the happiest man in the world, right? Wrong. My counselor had this wonderful idea: If I told her that I was going to start a new project, she would be so happy. I would be the happiest man in the world, right? Wrong.
I know this is a bit off-topic, but I saw a tweet recently about a new study that concluded that it’s not good to be a parent if you can’t cope with childrearing. I’m glad that I’m not a parent, but I’m not so sure I can handle being a parent.
The study found that if a person is unable to cope with a child’s pain and suffering, then it is likely that the child is unable to cope with the pain of their own. This is a very important point, because a child’s sense of worth, self-esteem, and self-confidence are all tied to how well they are able to cope with their emotions. It’s very easy to think, “I can cope with this,” but that’s not how it works.
I think there is a difference between parenting and counseling. There is a huge difference between a parent who is able to handle their emotions and a parent who is unable to. The difference is not so much in how much a parent is able to handle their emotions, but rather how they handle them. A parent who is able to handle their emotions, and who does not act on them, is a parent who can handle the pain of their childs suffering.
I can relate to this. I was once told by a really nice counselor that I was able to handle my emotions, but that I had to be careful not to act on them. This did not sit well with me, because I had to be careful not to act on my emotions because my emotions would ruin everything I had done. I could not handle the pain of my emotions, so I ended up hating myself and hurting my family.
It’s hard to say exactly what’s happening in this video, but if the video is anything to go by it seems that the counselor is saying that your emotions make you do all sorts of things and that you need to be careful not to act on them because that could ruin everything you’ve done in the past.
