Philosophers have wondered whether we have any control over anything.
Do our wishes make a difference or is it out of our hands? Are we helpless
victims of some cruel fate or are we sitting back, relaxed, watching the
universe unfold as it should?
For the present, we are going to take a loose stance and suppose there
may be some things we cannot change and some things that we can.
Increasing our acceptance of our limits does not put us out of the game, but
may in fact, put us in it.
Generally, when people come to therapy, they are, one way or another,
wanting something to change. One of the things a therapist can do is to
provide methodologies. On this site, I have written about a few different
approaches which describe change in terms of stages. There are many,
many more than I have included here. Whether these approaches are like
recipes or prescriptions is for you to decide. Even if they are just
observations, they may prove to be of tremendous help.
