Made me giggle… at least some people ‘get’ Chopra.

chopra BS book

I do find it sad, the amount of people who fall for the BS, spouted by people like Chopra. And even worse, how many raise his needy ego, right up on the pedestal where he wants to be placed.

The power of rational thought, critical thinking/analysis and wisdom, eludes many. Which is sad.

But, I have to admit, this book title, did make me giggle.

I am glad some people know exactly what people like Chopra, are really all about.

My ladies group, is going well :)

I decided to set up a ladies group, to meet up for coffee. I am hoping it will be a group where women will have some enjoyment, chatting and possibly making friends. It’s going really well. I’ve arranged two so far, and both have been really great, with a good vibe and good feedback. I can already tell which ladies will become the regular core group ladies.

Some of the ladies are quiet and some are really chatty, which is great, because I don’t feel the need to always keep talking, or be responsible for starting conversation. Which helps with my social anxiety issues. I’m really grateful for the diversity of the group. Continue reading

Narcissists, sociopaths & psychopaths, devastate lives.

I am very aware of the devastation these highly abusive people cause.

They destroy lives, and have no remorse, no conscience, no guilt, no shame.

There are many victims who end their lives, due to severe pain and suffering caused to them, by these highly abusive people.

And they all know exactly what they are doing. They know it’s wrong. They know it’s abuse.

They just don’t care. And they often enjoy and gain pleasure from harming others.

There are people who demand we should feel sorry for them, based on some kind of trauma or abuse they may have been subjected to. Continue reading

I am so thankful, for all the support I receive.

I am always so thankful, to receive support for my work. Here on my blog, for my website and via social media. I do have a lot of ongoing support from many mental health professionals, many survivors of complex trauma, authors etc. And I am thankful for each and every person. More than anyone probably knows.

I am so thankful to have recently been asked to provide an article for a best selling authors new book. Which I have now provided. I feel very honoured to be asked.

It does raise my spirits, when I see how the work I do, helps people in a meaningful way. It keeps my motivation going, to keep sharing, keep writing.

I’m aware from the ongoing feedback I receive, raw honesty and a capacity to express  how this complex journey feels – the good, the bad and the ugly – is something so many complex trauma survivors need and search for. Continue reading

Self compassion

self-compassion

Often complex trauma survivors, struggle with self compassion. Especially if the trauma was caused throughout childhood, by parents. I think childhood complex trauma survivors, often have an inner voice that says ‘if your own parents didn’t love you, then you must be unlovable and defective’.

And it takes a long time, for this message to change and a more healthy message, to develop.

To have self compassion, self care may seem really easy to most people. But, it can be a very hard journey, for those who never received love in childhood. Continue reading

Counselling was so hard today.

I wasn’t going to go. But, I knew I had to try and explain how I feel. It would have been so much easier, to not go. It was beyond hard. I am utterly exhausted – mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually…. I can’t even focus enough, to write.
