Thoughts for today

I am reading an article called Choice Theory and Emotional Dependency by Joan Hoogstad.

She states, "Dependent individuals have not acquired the effective behaviors they need to satisfy their need for power, largely because the choices they make involve all or some of the disconnecting habits they learned as a child. Disconnecting habits are blaming, complaining, nagging, punishing, threatening, criticizing and rewarding in order to control."

I love reality therapy and choice theory the best so far of all the therapeutic models I learned this semester.

Oh! So that's my problem ;) Just kidding! It actually sounds like an interesting article because these behaviors are so prevalent in our society. Enjoy the rest of your vacation Linda!
