The gratitude attitude. Individual therapists in Dr. Phillips have begun to utilize this rhythmic phrase in their mental health therapy sessions to improve the lives of their clients. The question that most present is what does this phrase mean? On the surface, it means that one’s attitude should be correlated with feeling grateful for what was given to them and what was presented to them for their success.
However, therapy in Dr. Phillips is geared towards examining this more in-depth by having the person being given an attitude of gratitude to the self. This is having gratitude towards the strengths, values, and unique traits that make the person fantastically amazing. Much of the time, as noted by individual therapists in Dr. Phillips, an attitude can be directly influenced by how the world sees the person.
Take the introspective route and look inward towards the healthy and positive version of the self. Be grateful and open to the greatness and unique abilities that the person can offer. Have the gratitude be directed towards and internally validate the person that is meant to be instead of having the attitude being directed to making others and the world happy. It is about time the initiative changes to be grateful towards ourselves.
