To me, in my line of work of working with changing negative emotions and habits and, therefore, your behaviour, it is very important to seek help from and listen closely to those who actually practise what they preach. As they know what is involved in change and what it takes from within to do so.
I have much respect for those who walk their talk. I don’t feel those who just talk the talk have much integrity. Words come easy. Just knowing things from reading and studying certain matters does not mean that person has empathy and real insight.
For me what really shows the character of a person is not just by what they say but more by what they do – their behaviours.
In the past, I personally had reservations seeking weight loss help from a very overweight person. I once had counselling with a woman who instead of listening to me was dismissing what I was feeling because it didn’t fit the model of counselling and process she had learnt. Needless to say, I stopped seeing her.
My values and standards of integrity, authenticity, and making a positive difference have arisen from growing up with double standards, with hypocrisy, with half lived lives of those around me.
