Supporting innate personality traits

Here's a good YouTube clip that preaches a new understanding of baffling behaviors. Isn't it better to work with these traits rather than against them by labelling and medicating? Now, if you line up the behavior with the numerological significance of the birth date, your appreciation for your relative's gifts will bring even greater empathy.


  1. I LOVE this! I wish CCHR didn't have any ties with Scientology - that association makes their message lost to so many people. But then you watch clips like this, and what they're saying is just the truth. Period. And what an incredible way to say it.

    Some words of inspiration for any of your readers who have been given a psychiatric label -

    My Declaration of Self-Esteem

    by Virginia Satir

    I AM ME

    In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me
    Everything that comes out of me is authentically me
    Because I alone chose it - I own everything about me
    My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
    Whether they be to others or to myself - I own my fanatasies,
    My dreams, my hopes, my fears - I own all my triumphs and
    Successes, all my failures and mistakes Because I own all of
    Me, I can become intimately acquainted with me - by so doing
    I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts - I know
    There are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other
    Aspects that I do not know - but as long as I am
    Friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously
    And hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles
    And for ways to find out more about me - However I
    Look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever
    I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically
    Me - If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought
    And felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is
    Unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that
    Which I discarded - I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do
    I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be
    Productive to make sense and order out of the world of
    People and things outside of me - I own me, and
    therefore I can engineer me - I am me and
