Sarah, as a behavior analyst I really enjoyed your first posting choosing the life you want. You hit the nail in the head. Change your environment to a healthier environment and behavior changes for the better. I truly enjoy your writing and the joy this is apparent in your new life with many prosocial behavior. You might want to see our Substack - Prosocial Behavior - Weaving the Culture. The drivers of one's behavior are to be found in the environment/culture that surrounds us. I admire your energy and determination. Keep it up, you are doing a lot of good through your writing and behavioral examples. Best to you, Francisco Perez.
