i am reading transactional analysis at the present.
t.a. is a study of aspects of the personality in relation to others........hence the transactional aspect of the name.
but something just struck me. i`m a proponent of the nature of self-direction. it`s what we all do at the end of the day. there is no more domineering boss than the self.
so this self that dominates our lives must also have the same characteristics that other people do and subsequently can be analysed in the same way regarding games.
the games that t.a. describe as played between people can also be played internally and are as effective and as limiting as the external ones.
so if we are playing games of varying descriptions with ourselves, when we change the game we change the life............
