Four precious qualities

After being a therapist for 7 years, I found these 4 qualities precious in people and worth spending our whole lives pursuing:

• see people as they are, instead of twisting them in fantasy to satisfy our needs

• the ability to transform thoughts into action in real life without much delay

• dare to expose oneself in intimate relationships

• the courage and curiosity to explore new territories despite fears from past wounds

None of the above is easy, and they are all spectrums, not fixed end goals. I hope everyday we all get a little closer 💫
