Unconditional Positive Regard…..

I like the sound of that!!

But what does it mean?

Unconditional positive regard is a concept developed by the humanistic psychologist Carl Rogers. It is the basic acceptance and support of a person regardless of what the person says or does.

When that person in traffic, or at work, or at home ‘grinds your gears’ it might be very helpful to cultivate a feeling of unconditional positive regard.  Taking this approach will allow you to stay removed from the behaviour of the person.  We often get caught up, emotionally, in what others do and this is a way out.

It isn’t easy, but with practise it will make your life less stressful.


Peace and harmony to all
