Dealing with repressed emotions

31 Mar

As a child I kept my emotions to myself, because my childhood wasn’t a particularly happy one. Of course things are different now because I’ve learned to deal with repressed emotions, by talking about things.

When anyone talks about a repression of emotions, they’re talking about holding back on their emotions. It’s normally used as a means of survival, so that we don’t have to deal with our emotions …

The eternal sceptic

30 Mar

Many of us will know someone who lives and has made an occupation of being an eternal sceptic. I know I have. People who continually choose to question or throw doubt on other people’s knowledge.

Anyone who is an eternal sceptic will have his or her own opinions, will discredit what’s being said and will usually want to carry out their own research, before they consider or believe the facts …

Cancer & sugar

28 Mar

The facts about sugar intake for many people are completely confusing, particularly when it comes to a family whose loved one is dealing with cancer.

Learning about the connections between sugar and cancer is important primarily because we need to make the best nutritional choices when dealing with cancer.

The facts

Sugar feeds every cell in the body and the body needs sugar for energy. If we cut out sugar altogether, the body will take it from other sources such as fat and protein. The body cannot live without …

Judgment & spirituality

27 Mar

Being spiritual, I have never tried to make anyone believe what I believe, or judged someone for what they believe. It’s simply not my way.

I believe that as individuals we evolve as we grow emotionally, physically and spiritually day-by-day. What we are today is not what we will be tomorrow. Every soul has a spirit. I believe we can …

Why we shouldn’t conform

26 Mar

I used to feel guilty and although I know I had no choice but to conform as a child, I thought it may be helpful to write from my own view point, why it’s important for us to not to conform to other people’s rules and why we should learn to follow our own path more.

It stands to reason that if we live by our own rules, we will live with less stress and we’ll have more peace. We will be free to make our own choices so that we can live our own lives, but when we …

Stress & my resolve

24 Mar

The issues I deal with on a daily basis are usually the reason why I’m an early riser. I go to sleep with no thoughts, or preconceived ideas about any of the issues I might have been dealing with during that day, but I usually wake up with some of the answers in my head, on any unresolved issues.

It wasn’t the pattern I had as a child. As a child I wouldn’t get to sleep if I had a concern or worry and although it took me a while to sleep, once I slept, I usually stayed asleep. As the adult, I have no …

Treading water again

Just when I thought I was turning a corner on our luck yesterday, we found ourselves facing another hurdle.

I just want something to go right, something that we can smile about, something that shows us we’re moving forward on the last 2 years. I’m not giving up on things. Tomorrow is a brand new …

Defining our life

22 Mar

Something inspirational:

“As you emphasise your life, you must localise and define it. The more truly and earnestly you come to do anything, the more clearly you will see you cannot do everything. He who is truly good must be good for something. To be good for everything is to be good for nothing.”

PHILIPS BROOKS
