I discovered Dr. William Glasser’s Choice Theory in 2012 when I was getting ready to leave the United States because my work visa was expiring. I needed one more class to graduate with me masters in Counseling Psychology from Northeastern University and this course that was being offered over 2 weekends was the only option for me since I worked full time. After day one, I was hooked. You could even say I didn’t have a choice in continuing with it, it was that good!
Choice Theory taught me that I do indeed have a say in how I feel and that I didn’t need to be a victim to my circumstances. At first it felt a bit like someone was telling me not to feel sorry for myself, but as I delved deeper in to the theory, I realized it was empowering to know that I had a choice.
