Gestalt Prayer

This was written by Fritz Perls, the brilliant scholar & psychologist that developed Gestalt therapy. I have many of my clients memorize it & use it in their daily lives. It helps with codependent relationships, obligatory family relationships, developing independence, & maintaining an overall healthy philosophy in relationships.

I do my thing and you do your thing.

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,

And you are not in this world to live up to mine.

You are you, and I am I,

and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.

If not, it can't be helped.

(Fritz Perls, 1969)
