This Fritz Perls quote really resonates with me.
“Truth can be tolerated only if you discover it yourself because then, the pride of discovery makes the truth palatable.” Fritz Perls
I think this has meaning for me because I am stubborn and hate being told things, particularly how to do things.
I much prefer finding my own truth about a situation. But then again it depends on who is doing the telling, if it is someone I respect and whose opinion and wisdom I value then I will take it on board.
The truth of the discovery is interesting too.
Only you can know the truth that is right for you. Coaching encourages this self discovery with the safe knowledge that the person who is helping you is completely impartial, without the bias of ‘knowing’ and loving you. Highly skilled in their craft, that well meaning friends and relatives do not have have.
