Take Charge

Re-evaluation Counseling is a workable concept. Anybody can mess it up so it doesn’t work, anybody can be honestly confused for a while (all of us have been), but it isn’t up to* anybody to straighten you out, or make your life perfect, or model perfectly for you.

Take charge of things instead of complaining about other people or finding excuses not to do what you know well you should be doing. You don’t need a title to do it. All you need is a firm decision and some notion of how to get somebody else to listen to you.
