As part of my Body Psychotherapy course in Cambridge I have been looking at different traditions of psychotherapy and I have come across this incredible prayer created by Dr. Fritz Perls - the founder of Gestalt therapy:
I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and am I,
and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped.
It resonates deeply with me and I hope it does with you, too.
