Diversity of Focus

Have clients obsessed with “the case”. Life focus becomes some search for perceived justice. The rest of life seems to fall away. In many cases, the rest of life seems to have fallen away some time ago.

Across religions, emphasis seems to be on avoidance of pride. Part of this may be avoidance of excessive self-focus. Focus instead on others, and on other activities within one’s own life, that are outward, rather than inward.

Have a friend who deals with employment slights, over a career, by immediately redirecting focus to other aspects of his life. Others end up literally on the street, haunted by those same slights. See them mumbling out of a nearby shelter. Saw one whistling, wide-eyed, through a mall.

Moving forward being much easier than it appears. Lots of life beyond the immediate.
