Turning our backs

31 Jan

The hard part for any of us, is knowing when it’s time to turn our backs on someone or something. There are two trains of thought here.

Understanding what we’re turning our backs on and why perhaps it’s time to give it up.  If it’s someone or something that we’re struggling with and have been for some time and it’s making us …

Non-recognised milestones

30 Jan

I have come to realise that not only did I miss out on my milestones growing up, because my learning wasn’t normal, milestones associated with adolescence, maturity and the emotions one associates with milestones, I also struggled to reach.

The bad part is that the part of my brain, which is damaged is the part that controls the emotions, everything from what I feel to what I think, to my understanding of what I feel. It is …

A common sense approach

28 Jan

A common sense approach to what we have to deal with makes common sense.

So what is a common sense approach?

It’s the approach we take, it’s the standing back; it’s the voice in our head that tells us to listen. By listening to our thoughts, we do what makes common sense, for us to sort one or all of our …

A bad attitude

25 Jan

It doesn’t matter what we say, or how conciliatory, kind or compassionate we are towards other people, there will always be someone we come across, who thinks it’s acceptable to have a bad attitude towards us.

Those with a bad attitude will always assume there is something wrong with other people, but never with themselves. Any problem, they have is usually down to someone else and will often be …

Fix things

24 Jan

I used to know someone who instead of trying to fix his problems, would spend his time constantly moaning about them.

Personally I can’t see the attraction, but I have never come to understood why some people would choose to spend so much time and energy moaning, when they could fix the same problem in half …

Ignoring good advice

22 Jan

As a child I was always being told what to do. What I was given wasn’t as much a guide as a demand. As an adult I’ve often wondered, why people who are genuinely given good advice, often choose to ignore it?

The world over, we routinely sabotage ourselves by refusing to take good advice when it’s given to us. According to a study from Pennsylvania University, the things we think about just before …
