Not everything is about you

Not everything is about you

“This is from Billy, not Amanda (Full Disclosure).”

Motivation Thursdays with Mrs. Samuels

When we as people read or hear things, we feel as if it pertains directly to us. We begin to internalize these thoughts and start to dwell on the content. This is selfish of humans, not everything is about you. Over the last 10 months my wife has periodically written motivational letters and I tend to believe I was not the subject of the topics. But last week she wrote me a “note” and placed in my lunchbox, of which I will share. After you read it you may feel that over the last year, “motivational Thursday” was based on my actions at home. I am not going to agree with you!

“Have a wonderful week. I Love You. Don’t be a jerk. People are counting on you. I Love You. XOXO”

Have an amazing weekend once it arrives.

Amanda Samuels, LMFT
