When you introduced the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program to me last year, I was skeptical of its likely success; my participation in similar programs twice in the past never yielded any long-lasting benefits. Since the dawn of my earliest intelligence, I’ve suffered an explosive temper and as a result caused many people harm. Pursuant my emotional outbursts I would unfortunately judge myself harshly and withdraw from society as a form of self-inflicted punishment. This vicious cycle has been my cross for as long as I can remember and also the reason why I’ve sought professional help in the past. Having now completed the program, I struggle to find the words to adequately express my gratitude for the vital social skills you’ve taught me over the past couple of months. The program and the related activities resulted in tangible differences in my everyday life and has been a game-changer for me. My blinding road-rage is almost eliminated entirely; I find myself listening to people where in the past I merely heard them (you have no idea how much this newly acquired skill alone, is changing my relationships with colleagues and friends) and I’m gradually able to manage conflict situations with unfamiliar poise. Thank you for your particular commitment to this program and the difference it makes in the lives of others. Your text messages of encouragement and ‘tips-and-tricks’ daily not only enhanced my newly acquired skills but motivated me to persevere as well. I acknowledge your personal sacrifice (without reward) in providing these daily messages and commend you for the unconditional love this demonstrates. Of all my newly acquired abilities, I am most appreciative of my capacity to assess myself with compassion and my conduct with kindness; thank you (so very much) for showing me that I’m special and worthy even when I’ve ‘fallen’. I am privileged to have met you and I look forward to our future journey together; you undoubtedly have a lot to teach and I am eager to learn. Yours in appreciation,
