Satir’s Piece

Ater reading my published memoir, Ms Abby, the facilitator of a course I recently attended (Coping and Overcoming Life Stressors) on 2, 9, 16 & 23 June, shared with me personally a piece from Satir, which I feel I must reproduce here:

To Be More Fully Me

I need to remember

I and me

and in all the world there is no one like me

I give myself permission

to discover me and use me lovingly

I look at myself and see

A beautiful instrument

In which that can happen

I love me

I appreciate me

I value me


From Making Contact by Virginia Satir (Millbrae, CA: Celestial Arts, 1976)
