MYSTORY The last few interviews I have done, the host asked me how I decided to study psychology. This is not a hard question for me because I recall the exact moment in time when I knew this would be my life's work. My mother and I were arguing as we so often did following my parent's divorce. I was so disrespectful and she was at a total loss on what do with me. We were like two adult women arguing even though I was only 13 years old. I stormed out of her room and ran to the living room to get away from her. While I was sitting in the middle of the floor I started praying. I may have been a knucklehead but I knew who was my source. When I finished my prayer, I looked on the shelf to find something to read. WE had plenty of books. I landed on one of my dad's psychology books that was left after he departed the home. Just thumbing through the college level book, I saw a word that drew me in to the page – dysfunctional. Dysfunctional – that was what we were. We were not hateful, we were not crazy, and I certainly was not a selfish kid as I had so often been called. We were dysfunctional. By the end of middle school, I had pretty much read through the entire psychology book. And by the time I arrived to high school, I knew I wanted to be a psychologist to help other kids understand they were not crazy. . . . . . . . . #mystory #drstaciaalexander #2020release #therapist #psychotherapy #americastherapist #successtherapist #GAI #augustaccountability #goalsareimportant #IworkItWorks #goalsdonthavefeelings #goalsareimportant #blacktherapist
