She Was Emotionally Unavailable

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 15:12:24 -0500

When I met the woman who I would go on to spend a number of months with in 2013, I remember seeing her from a certain angle and thinking about how much she looked like my mother.

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 07:01:09 -0600

HAVE you ever noticed that, no matter how confident you are, eye contact is harder with a person who avoids eye contact? Or, when someone gives you intentional eye contact their attention provokes your own attention? Whilst we tend not to notice it, we do tend to mirror each other.

Swings, Roundabouts and Those Competitive Comparisons

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 08:04:04 -0600

MANY times, I have counselled people in the phenomenon of the level playing field that life invariably is, generally.

Replacing Guilt With Compassion

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 07:20:32 -0600

GUILT is a common emotional response in the family context - parents for children, siblings with each other, children for parents, etc. The core of the issue relates to when we cannot influence or control others and where we feel responsible for them. Correcting both these errors is about accepting the limitedness of our influence, that control ought not to be our goal, and that we cannot ever be responsible for other people - no matter who they or we are.

It could be persistent sadness, too much of energy, crazed mood swings, lack of interest in anything, and so on and so forth. Can we do something about it, like being a friend or just being there, or should we cut and run? Here is an article based on how disinterest needs to be done away with, in favour of going the mile.

Letting Go and Starting Afresh

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 07:23:14 -0500

How often do we hold onto dead relationships, jobs and situations - always hoping that they will change, when in fact we should be thanking them for the learning, letting go and walking away - dashing off to embrace new relationships and learning. How much pain do we cause ourselves through this process of holding on, and to what advantage? Holding onto the past not only keeps us in a painful state, but it stunts our growth - both physically and spiritually.
