Unfortunately, in some families, bullying is an accepted behavior—this usually occurs because parents don’t know any other way. And so they continue parenting their kids the same way they were brought up. But that doesn’t make it right.
Change doesn’t come from some anomalous omnipresent superpower. It comes from regular people holding up their hands, using their voice and owning their story. I want to be able to have conversations that mean that in some small way emotional abuse isn’t ignored, brushed under the carpet and allowed to continue behind
We all know that life never happens like you want it to. The good and the bad have their own way of unfolding and it never happens when you expect it to happen. You can try with all your might, but you’ll never be able to control it. Although you don’t have much control over what will happen to you, the one thing you do have complete control over is how you interpret it – your perspective.
Recently I've been thinking about times when we are judgmental of others. Why does it take so long to recognise that if we are judging others there is a little part of us that wants to be more or less like them?
Dealing with difficult people never easy... The sooner we look through the superficial facts to the truth of one’s character, the better. It is too easy to be blinded by someone’s position, profession or by their life path.
The Most Powerful Thing You Can Do to Make Your Workday Less Stressful
What I’ve learned over the years is that stress needs more than management. There are great techniques for dealing with pressure at work.
Haven't we learn the hard way that our anger often derives from frustrated expectations? This leaves us with the following question: what shall we STOP expecting from others to avoid unnecessary frustration?
I became a big fan of notorious TV Series "Californication". I won't go deep into my subjective thoughts on why this show is bad or good, let's put it plainly, it made me wonder even more: Why Do Women Like Bad Boys?
I wish I’d found a better way to manage my insomnia early in life. I can say this now because recently my attempts to improve my sleep have met with fair success. But in the years when I was prone to ferocious bouts of insomnia, the way out of my predicament was a mystery.
When you think of the phrase 'letting go', it conjures up all sorts of images, thoughts and feelings doesn't it?
Freedom, free falling, a sigh of relief, moving forwards, uncertainly - all kinds of things. Learning to know how and when to let go has been a big one for me. Letting go ultimately enables me to stress less, sleep more, feel free and just 'be'. It also brings up fear and uncertainty but for me, that's much better than the stress, angst and anxiety of clinging on.
The thing about letting go is that in today's society we're not really conditioned to embrace it.
It's all about being proactive and making stuff happen. Also, as someone building a business, there are many things I need to do and goals to achieve and 'letting go' doesn't really support that notion of work, work, work until you succeed! However, what I have found - in all areas of life actually, is that by letting go you let in all the things that in some weird, mystical or mysterious way, work for you so that all that graft doesn't feel quite so much like the 'sweat, blood and tears' we apparently need to endure to get things done.
Do you feel stuck? Would you like to make a change but feel trapped? Feeling this way is a natural & normal part of life, but it can wither our spirit and sap our energy and vitality. The key to breaking free and moving forward is simple: don’t wait for the change, create it.
I spent many years trying to fit in, doing what I thought I should, conforming to society’s norms, though, it didn’t make me happy. When I hit 30 I decided there must be more to life than this and went in search of happiness. I left my top corporate job, my relationship of 7 years, my home, possessions and my country.
