Recollections and Accountability

My book of insight, honesty and compassion, Cerebral Palsy: ‘A Story’ is written from a universal standpoint. It doesn’t just represent me, but represents us all, as I break down my challenges, I do for others too.

Over the years, my experiences have forced me to stand back and re-evaluate my life. When you bring universal understanding into any piece of writing, you bring honesty, understanding and compassion.

In the book I express my feelings in a casual manner, in a way that allows others to understand for them to grasp their own experiences and what they know to be true. But no matter our experiences, it’s how we talk about our experiences that matter.

It is a book of recollections and accountability, an accountability of my experiences, and what others know unconsciously to be true. Above all, it’s a book of inspiring messages, advocating resilience and change, and is perfect for Covid-19 times.

It is through the difficult times that we may choose to ignore the very things that can help bring about peace. Instead, we may shy away and avoid addressing the very things we need to address.

As a small child I buried what I was dealing with, it was my coping mechanism; but anything we put on the back burner will resurface, and will unconsciously start to make us ill. If Covid-19 teaches us one thing, it’s that we shouldn’t ignore the very things we need to deal with. Life may seem long, but it is very short.

As the virus continues to turn the mirror on us, it is important we challenge ourselves to think about our life and how we can help ourselves emotionally move forward. Luckily, I have done the hard work, so you don’t have to. My book Cerebral Palsy: A Story ‘Finding the Calm After the Storm’ changes all of that.

  1. I was trying to remember the things that happened in my childhood and I couldn’t seem to recall them very well, which is a good thing.

    I used to be haunted by so many things thanks to an extremely good memory, which finally seems to be fading with time. I also buried much of my childhood feelings that came out what I call sideways, feelings that I couldn’t explain.

    It resulted in addictive behaviors trying to suppress those feelings that always ended very badly. It’s only recently that I have finally been able to deal with so many of these issues, which is making my life better.

    I hope it will finally bring peace to my life which I desperately need in these trying times.

    1. Thanks Randy. I’ve heard it said we block out the experiences that hurt us the most. Given what you’ve been through, it is not surprising.

      Whatever your recollections though, your parents will know what those are and how they contributed to what you had to deal with.

      No matter what any of us deal with in our childhood or our life, accountability will always rest with the other person, regardless of whether they accept they are responsible. The universe knows.

      Yes, the universe knows our struggles, it is also aware of what we deal with. Anyone walking away, or passing away, will never erase the deed.
