Video: You Are A Good Person

Sharon feels an easy rapport with the animals and visitors at the zoo where she volunteers, but when it comes to her friends, something doesn’t click. “I don’t know what I’m doing wrong,” she says. “I do The Work daily. I just want to be a good person. I just want to laugh.”

“Oh, honey,” says Katie, “you already are a good person; there’s nothing you can do about that. You don’t have a choice. And any thought that you may be believing that opposes it is going to feel like stress.”

In answer to Sharon’s worry about not being invited out, Katie says that being alone can never be a bad thing as long as she loves her thoughts. And social invitations only come when necessary. “You’d be amazed at the invitations you might get that you have to say no to, and it could be you’re not quite ready for that kind of interaction. Who knows? And the animals at the zoo are lucky to have someone as quiet and lovely as you. Humans are animals too. You shouldn’t expect too much from them.”

“Oh, that feels so much better,” Sharon says. “There was such a big tightness in my chest for so long. Thank you so much.”
