Reading into it

One of the primary complaints I get from patients or, in fact, see as a problem for patients and they don’t even realize it’s the problem, is that they don’t understand the minds of others.

This may come as a shock, but people are not on earth to make you happy. Just like you, they are on earth to make themselves happy. Every Single One. The sooner you figure out what makes a person tick, the sooner you’ll be able to do an emotional tango with any one of them and make yourself much happier.—MR
