Today's Assignment 10/26/11

I've been doing a "Today's Assignment" for my friends on Facebook, and it dawned on me that it would be a lovely addition to the Doc Blog. So, let's go!

Today's Assignment: Listen patiently, with compassion. Don't worry about what it means for you. Think about what it means for them.


  1. This is a tough one--one that's a regular part of my job, but hard to do when I get bombarded with rude or short remarks. But doing it is a kindness to myself (because when I find out the context behind the rudeness, my heart immediately softens). Thanks for posting.

  2. This is how it works for me. The more therapy work I do, the more I realize that people are usually trying the best they can. :)
