Real listening can only occur when the other person suspends all of their own agenda which is very hard to do. We recognise when someone has really listened to us as we feel heard and understood which in turn makes us feel worthy and important. Please remember that when someone needs to speak to you, remember it is about them not you.

Abuse makes us believe that there is nothing or noone better for us. This comes from a lack of confidence and self esteem and is never true. We all deserve to be treated equally and with respect. Rebuilding your self esteem enables you to see your self worth and with this see how abuse affects you in many ways. Abuse will not be tolerated. Abuse is never ok. Abuse is never your fault. You can with support learn to believe this and in time learn to believe in yourself. You are always worth it.

We can not control whether or not we get hurt. Fear stops us from moving forward. If we can use the courage deep within us we can learn to trust and take risks. If we learn to let go, we can learn to live more fully in the moment and be more truly alive and free.

Help someone and you help them temporarily. Support someone to help themselves and you give them a gift for life. Make it about them, not you.

Love nestarts with us. It is our life and we need to be in control of it. Not in control of someone else, or someone else’s problems or someone else’s anything. If weds to start with us, with you. We are the ones that have to live in this world, deal with our emotions, deal with us. Even when we have others in our life, we are still alone in some respects and if we can not deal with/look after ourselves then we are in trouble. We are adults and although it is hard and very challenging at times, we need to learn to be with ourselves. To eat and drink by ourselves, to walk by ourselves, to learn, to be by ourselves.
If we don’t get to know ourselves, how can we expect someone else to get to know us?
If we don’t understand ourselves, how can we expect someone else to understand us?
If we don’t love ourselves, how can we expect someone else to love us?
Whatever we do, think, feel, it all e are not in control of our own life, who is?..........
