Hard to like

28 Feb

There are just some people in our lives that make it so hard for us to like them? We’ve probably all come across people 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 don’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 are …

Cerebral Palsy & sensory problems

27 Feb

I am just wondering if there is anyone out there with Cerebral Palsy who can relate to sensory problems as well. If there is I would love to hear from you. It’s common for people like myself who have Cerebral Palsy to experience abnormal sensation and perception, but these are the things I’m having to work through for the first time.

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

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 just one step forward. I’m looking forward to another week’s writing, but would also love to have more of a …

Being superior

Something inspirational:

Other people’s emotions

24 Feb

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

These suggestions are worth considering:

  • We are the source of our own negativity. If we are our own source, try to work out why we’re feeling so negative. Dig deep, the answer is always there, we 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.

It is our inability to deal with hurdles that will often leave us in a position, where we are less than able to cope emotionally. How easy it would be to get angry at ourselves. Emotionally we won’t always …

Actions & reactions

21 Feb

We’re taught that it’s easier to turn the other cheek on someone’s bad behaviour. Like it is okay for them to behave badly and for us to turn the other cheek. I remember being taught the exact thing as a child.

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

My feelings now

20 Feb

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

It’s often the effort we make that can leave us with a feeling of despondency. I woke up feeling positive, then as the morning started my mood began to change. A few hours on and I’m pleased to …

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.”
