Stepping out of the Drama Triangle…as a country

Are you, like me, frustrated by the bullying and lack of respect and effective action that seems to be taking place in our current political climate? That said, I am intolerant of whining from others so will not allow myself to indulge either. That means I need to do something about my concerns.

Many of you have heard me talk about the Drama Triangle. I have witnessed firsthand how the understanding of this powerful “tool” has transformed lives and families. I have been looking at how to encourage this understanding for those leading our country. How fortunate to have learned that I am not alone! When I heard of the bipartisan social movement No Labels, I was encouraged and heartened!

I just returned from the first No Labels Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. I have been a part of many organizations throughout my professional life and have never been as inspired by the intelligence, commitment, and integrity as I am with the leadership and membership of this group. This is not a centrist, conservative, or liberal movement. It is not about ideology or issues. It is about an attitude and a new and healthy approach to solving problems. It is asking for bipartisan cooperation. The problems facing our country and our world today are immense and urgent and require the best of ourselves and others to come up with effective solutions.

If you want to be part of solutions, I invite you to check out and add your voice to positive solutions.

  1. After attending a Circle of Celebration, facilitated by Liza, for a dear friend of mine, I decided to do something for/with my 93 year old father. A long time ago, my father heard my sister and me sing “How Great Thou Art” as I played the guitar. So for the last forty years off and on, he has said he wants us to sing that song at his funeral (actually memorial service because he wants to be cremated). Anyway, last weekend, I drove to Houston, got my guitar and my sister and told her, “I want to sing this song for Daddy while he’s still alive – i don’t want to wait until he’s gone and can’t hear it with his ears!”

    We drove to his house – and miraculously (smile) had him all to ourselves (quite unusual). I told him the same thing, “Daddy we want you to hear this now”. I can’t tell you how precious it was to see him cup his ears (he’s hard of hearing) and close his eyes to concentrate fully on our singing. By the end of the song, he had tears streaming down his face. The three of us hugged and said how much we love each other. Thank you Liza for teaching us this gift! Barb
