Look for the Positives

Self praise. I don’t do enough of it. It is a point which was first brought to my attention during the cross-cultural counselling course I did last year. In my learning journals I repeatedly wrote that my contributions to the group were either minimal or negligible.

Karaj encouraged me to look for the positives in everything I do. Even the silence of a non-contribution can be seen as a positive because, for example, it allows others to speak.
