Thanks, Jay. <smile>

I had an incredibly hard time with confrontation and saying "no" when I was younger. Thank God I had a psychology professor in college introduced an idea that I used as a model to work with. Self-Actualization. I wonder if any therapists use self-actualization as a treatment modality. I've never heard of it being done.

Real quick: Although personal improvement was extremely difficult during my decades of life in a vegetative state. They called me a "flat-liner". However, I was fortunate to have awakenings for a few days every so many years. I got to experience my psyche in the absence of depression. That led me to two decisions.

1. Life would be worth living once I was cured (remission).

2. I would work hard towards getting my psyche as healthy as possible in the meantime, despite the struggle to move forward with my personal growth. I went to several psychologists along the way to deal with residual issues. I didn't want to waste a single second. In other words, as one of my doctors put it, I was in the gate and chomping at the bit. Once the gate would finally open, I had planned to be well-trained and ready to sprint.

It was a good plan.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
