Shrinks aren't miracles workers...only their patients are!

"In The End I Must Help Myself"
 
I may look up to you for guidance.
I may look up to you for care.
But in the end I must help myself.
I can not expect you to supply me
with all the answers.
I can not expect you to make up
my mind for me.
I can not expect you to fix all my problems.
Though I might think you're capable
of doing so.
But I'm the who has to make
the necessary changes.
I'm the one who has to care enough
in the first place to change.
I can turn to you for help.
But you'll never be able to help me
unless I'm ready to help myself.

this is a very good piece of advice, one must stand up for oneself. as there maybe know one to help you, there is a proverd saying, help yourself before you can help others.
