It's Just Not Me

Are there things that people want you to do that you just don't like to do? I don't mean things that will improve your functioning, health or position in life, but those things that you have just decided you don't want to do. As an example, I'm not a "telephone person", but I will talk on the phone when the mood strikes me or it's necessary. There are a special few to whom I "ease" my rule-my mother (of course); my best friend, Mother McClurkin, who is 95 years-old and with whom I spend every Saturday speaking with for at least an hour; my close family members; and for business clients and colleagues. Other than that I'm pretty content without telephone conversations. I think I'm pretty well adjusted and sociable, so that's not an issue. Do you find it humorous that people can become upset or offended if you don't want to do something that they want you to do? Oh, by the way, I don't "text" either. Let the "pressure" to do that begin. What about you? What's your "It's Just Not Me" issue?

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!!
