Things Can Also Be Different & Cultural Lens

1: “Things can also be different” Discussion

People who knew Alfred Adler personally often recalled his saying, “things can be different”. Adler, an optimist, believed and relayed to others a belief that life can be different, can improve, and that we can improve and become different.
