Trust and Honesty

Today’s blog is about trust and honesty, simply put, they go together. If you have one, you will be the other. We should be able to trust and be trustworthy, in the same way we should be honest and trust others to be honest with us and that starts with our parents, with family.

Whatever spin we eventually put on our experiences we may go back to the same thought processes. But no matter the childhood, we need to consciously decide that if we are going to change history, we need to change ourselves.

Children trust, it’s the basis of their relationship …

Challenges yet to overcome

There is no doubt that how we get to our struggles can stay with us. Anything that we get to deal with, can put a different slant on how we feel, whether it comes from a relationship with our parents, siblings and/or extended family.

Whilst others may have an opinion, they’re not the one with a life lived that should have been lived differently and if they were made to live a different life, like us, that would be for them to work through and reconcile.

As individuals, we have choices, it is up to us to think about and work through our challenges. …

Following the Covid-19 Rules

In the beginning we were told that those with a pre-existing condition were more likely to die or be seriously ill from Covid-19. Although at the time that was hard to hear having a disability myself, it is now clear that those with no pre-existing condition are equally at risk.

In January 2020 the UK media reported on Covid-19, although we didn’t go into lockdown until the following March. Almost 16 months later, we still don’t fully understand how the virus is transmitted …

My Pick Me Up Book

Writing Cerebral Palsy: A Story ‘Finding the Calm After the Storm, which is different to the blog, means for the first time I talk about my experiences, my life and my disability, in a self-contained place that helps me and others understand our lives and it’s different to the blog.

Living with autism is like watching a mouse on a ferris wheel go round. Unless I am able to find a resolve on my issues, my thoughts go nowhere and that adds to my daily stress. My book helps me deal …

Blind Loyalty

Blind loyalty involves being loyal or dedicated to a person, despite the damage that person does to us, or others. Excusing bad behaviour may save face in the short term, but in the longer term, it’s us who will lose out.

It may also involve a form of cognitive dissonance, where he or she sees a problem, turns a blind eye on the truth in favour of keeping a positive image of that person, or cause. Blind loyalty is prevalent in …

A Karen Marie Moning quote

Something inspirational:

“Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast.
