. @nytimes Was just asked how I stay so positive speaking up for #Hindu rights when everyone seems to be against Hindus? Answer: My training in psychology. I believe the REAL reason Hindus are bullied has nothing whatsoever to do with #Hinduism per se. It is because Hindus are...
viewed as soft targets/doormats/pushovers who won't speak up or fight back. Many have no idea of their own power or how profound & beautiful their spirituality is. They have low self-esteem. In psychotherapy, my specialty is helping abused people find their voice, regain their..
power, and change the dynamics of their relationships. So Hindu activism is just an extension of what I feel I do at work. And at work I see patients learn, grow, change behavior, and kick ass. I've seen wilting lilies transform into fierce tigers. So I'm confident we'll have a
good outcome with Hindu activism as well. Obviously, it will take longer and require more work, but it can happen. But the key is that the change starts within us, not from the outside. #selflove #selfcompassion #selfesteem
