Feeling bad

It helps that I can switch off when I need to, because switching off has got me through some very difficult times; but it doesn’t come without its disadvantages.

When I am constantly being reminded of my neurological struggles because of Cerebral Palsy, I switch so that I don’t have to feel bad, or think about it. Daily, I live with all of it. Although others may …

Our moral compass

A moral compass is a person’s ability to judge what is right and wrong and act accordingly. It’s our moral compass that’s partly responsible for the way we live our lives. The other part is our values.

Understanding our thinking

Science has shown that it is our thoughts about the things that happen to us that have the biggest impact on how we feel and how we will go on to act on those things.
