Relationships:
Life begins and ends with relationships.

You're alive today because someone cared enough about you to feed you, protect you and take care of your other basic needs at a time when you were helpless to care for yourself.

You've had many relationships up to this point in your life with family members, teachers, friends, colleagues, bosses, etc. Each has played some part in shaping you into the person you are today.

LifeDesign helps you clarify the varying ways people have influenced you and enhances your ability to choose the kind of relationships you want in the future.
