“Learn to recognize the subtle outside influences in your life.”

As I watched tv with my kids today, and listened to the messages that they were being told about self image, success, coping, and other life lessons, I remembered how many negative influences there are that influence them in very subtle ways.  Of course, there are also positive messages that come through, but if we don’t take the time to sit down and dissect the negative ones, what a disservice we are doing them as they form their assumptions about life.

For that matter, we also need to take some time to think about those messages that we receive from the media and mass culture and analyze if they are 1) true and 2) healthy for us to live by as well!
