Hard to like

28 Feb

Don’t you find there are just some people in your life that make it so hard for you to like them? We’ve probably all come across someone like that where it doesn’t matter what we say, something that seems totally innate, will turn into a massive argument with us feeling more frustrated that we’re having to fight our corner and still we can’t agree on things.

When a discussion turns, it’s usually got something to do with the other person and what they’re dealing with. How easy it is for us to go on the defensive, but that will never help when there is …

Cerebral Palsy & sensory problems

27 Feb

I am just wondering if anyone out there with Cerebral Palsy relates to sensory problems as well. If there is I would love to hear from you. Unfortunately it’s very common for people like myself who have Cerebral Palsy to experience abnormal sensation and perception.

This is something that I have experienced all my life, although I have only really been able to make sense of it since my Cerebral Palsy was diagnosed in my forties and through more research …

Circles

26 Feb

Going round in circles springs to mind this morning, when I look at where I am with everything that’s going on. I suppose the good part is that I’ve not taken a step back, but it would be great if I could take a step forward from time to time. I’m looking forward to another …

Other people’s emotions

24 Feb

Every negative emotion we carry from other people, are energies that if left can potentially become our emotions too. Our brains become emotional sponges without us realising. That’s why it’s so important for us to challenge ourselves, so that we’re not drawn in to other people’s negative emotions.

These suggestions are worth considering:

  • Sometimes we are the source of our own negativity. If you are your own source, try to work out why you’re feeling so negative. Dig deep, the answer is always there, you just have to find it;

Emotional stability

23 Feb

As we begin to live our lives, emotional stability is something that we will constantly have to work at. Unfortunately along life’s path, the hurdles we face become inevitable; they’re not something we can always plan for and are often hard to comprehend and overcome.

Often it is our inability to deal with hurdles that leave us in a position where we are less than able to emotionally cope. How easy it is to get angry when we look back on our most difficult experiences …

Actions and reactions

21 Feb

How many of us are taught to turn the other cheek when someone’s mean. Like it is okay for them to be mean and for us to turn the other cheek. I remember being taught the exact thing as a child.

But I believe it all comes down to the way people react to others’ behaviour in certain circumstances. For example if someone is unkind to you but you respond with kindness, the effect of …

My feelings now

20 Feb

It felt good having cleared up so many uncertainties that have been outstanding for a good few weeks and which are based around my father’s illness and although for a short while I felt elated, I’m actually feeling the opposite today. It’s often the effort we make that …

About peace

19 Feb

Something inspirational:

“Peace is something tangible. It silences the outgoing energy of the mind and feeds the aspiring heart. Peace is not merely the absence of quarreling and fighting. True peace is not affected by the roaring of the world, outer or inner. This sea of peace is at our command if we practise the spiritual life.”

SRI CHINMOY
