A few years ago, when I started my job, I had a few basic guidelines for my work: don’t make fun of people or their problems, do your job and be polite, and that’s it.
And that was it.
I didn’t really see any need to do anything more than that.
But a few years later, I started seeing new clients, and the reality of working with them changed everything.
I realized that the things I thought I knew about clients were completely wrong.
I’ve since started to learn how to do a bit more of what I once thought I’d be able to do.
This is the first in a series of posts on my career advice.
I hope it helps.
For now, I want to focus on one thing: what is it that makes a person’s life better?
Is there something about the way you approach clients, the way they interact with you and your work that makes you a better person?
I’ve been studying this for the past few years, and I’ve found that the answer is yes, there is.
The answers I’ve come up with are based on my own experiences and what I’ve learned in the last two years as a therapist.
If you want to be a better therapist, you have to change your mind-set.
I was at a loss to find out what the answer was when I first started practicing in 2015, when the internet was a new thing.
I had just finished a year of graduate school, and it seemed like everything I did was just about internet.
A few weeks later, though, I was sitting at my desk, browsing Reddit, when my first reaction was something like: What are these people talking about?
It seemed to me that the way we communicate in this society was changing.
People were making it easier to share information, but there were so many rules and expectations attached to it.
When I was younger, I didn, too.
I’d have to read a bunch of rules and regulations to get to the bottom of something, like when a person is on their period or a person has a new job, or a company decides to change their name.
What I realized was that there was a disconnect between what we think we know and what we actually know about people.
I felt that this disconnect had been growing since I was in high school, so I decided to take on the challenge of studying psychology to figure out what makes people’s lives better.
As a therapist, I’m always looking for the right answers to questions.
In this case, I’ve tried to figure it out by looking at what I call “common beliefs” about clients and the people I work with.
I don’t know exactly what that means, but the basic idea is that there’s a tendency for people to think that their clients are good or that their work is good or, yes, they are good.
In reality, those are just the two extremes that we see, and we’re trying to figure how to get around it.
So, I came up with a set of six common beliefs I’ve started to apply to my clients: 1.
People are happy to talk to me.
I try to help them with problems, even if I don
