Grudge Match

I've found that I was my most forgiving self as a zygote. Since then, it has become increasingly more difficult to recapture that forgiving spirit. When I was a child, I held on to a grudge as if it was the last piece of candy in the jar or my favorite toy-tightly and for as long as possible!! As I've aged (I sound as if I'm talking about a piece of cheese), I try not to hold on to offenses AS long. I would love to say that I'm in a place of total enlightenment and that I forgive freely and quickly; yes, I'd like to say that, but I can't. I can say that I'm getting better everyday and the time it takes for me to forgive is getting shorter and shorter. What about you? Are you moving forward toward forgiveness or holding on to grudges as tightly as ever? In a grudge match, there are no real winners, only losers. Now, for those of you who did not pay attention in class, there's a link to a definition of a zygote at the bottom of the page. I won't scold, laugh or mock you for not having paid attention in class!!

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
