SLAP UP #2: Choices are where you find them


Making Choices in the “Real World”

Whatever “real” means to you…in this case “real” means how people can think about the choices they make when facing problems a bit more “real” than wondering whether or not UFOs are from outer space or whether or not some TV psychic can read minds.

For example, when a person is facing a tough, life-changing decision, how can we help them think of choices that might not be obvious, but which they might not even think about?

How can we help people to think before acting, instead of just reacting?

How can we help a person who is dealing with violence to think of possible answers to their problems?

How can we help people who are dealing with addiction or alcoholism to see beyond the day-to-day, hour-to-hour, minute-by-minute tragedy they’re living?

What are we thinking? Why are we thinking it? Can we see a different point of view? Are we thinking much at all, or are we mostly bouncing along by reacting according to our feelings?

Don’t be afraid to think.
