Simply Sane was a required book for a pastoral integration class. I found its ideas very relevant to my own life and future practice and would recommend it to others in the field.
Be gentle with yourself Apr 23, 2003
Most of us are "addicted to perfection". Always trying to become whom we imagine others want us to become. This leads to much anxiety, depression and loneliness.
"To thy own self be true", we have to care and be gentle with our inner being if we want to go out into the world and love and be loved.
Dr. May gives us direction on how to "let go and let be", to get out of our ego, our own way and become the person we were meant to become. At times this might be seen as "selfish" but one has to understand that you can't give to others what you are denying to give yourself, so "charity begins at home".
