To Change Your Life, You Must Take Action
To Change Your Life, You Must Take Action
06/11/2018

Hi Dr. Laura:

I am a 28-year-old mental health therapist.  "Unconditional positive regard" was my motto in my personal and professional life, and it was killing me.  I didn't know why.  I was new to SiriusXM and I was excited to find a show like yours.  After hearing you take a call, my first reaction was "what a bitch!"  However, the caller didn't hang up.  She listened, and I was intrigued.  Then I began to understand how unconditional positive regard toward others leads to their walking all over you.  The more I listened to you, the more I woke up.  I saw that I was the sole cause of my own misery because I allowed it.  I engaged with people who were toxic for me.  You taught me how to say no and how to stand up for myself.  You taught me that tough love is necessary for growth and change.  You have become my "left brain" and I listen to you every day.  

I am no longer a millennial snowflake, walking around like I deserve for everyone to be nice to me because I am nice to them.  I took responsibility for my student debt and no longer placed blame on my parents because I WAS THE ONE who signed the papers and agreed to the terms.  Your feedback regarding romantic relationships, seeing red flags early on and taking action changed my life.

You've helped me change physically, mentally and spiritually.  I am the person I am today because of you.  So, to those of you who think Dr. Laura is a bitch, keep listening!  She is honest, authentic, genuine, loving, and understands how to live in line with her moral compass.  Dr. Laura, there are not many people like you left.  Thank you.

Kara
