Values are what bring distinction to your life. You don't find them, you choose them. And when you do, you're on the path to fulfillment.

Hi Doctor Sherman,
Stephen B here. It seems to me that the fundamental problem in these kinds of situations is the implicit assumption of those folks attempting to change others that they know [everything] better than the people they're trying to change. Whether it's family, friends, doctors, counselors, politicians, et all, it's the presumption of moral authority - and maybe the appointment of authority - that forms the basis for so much of this kind of ambigamous behavior that we're all guilty of from time to time.
That's my two cents. Great post, as always!
