Words have power. So it behooves us to be mindful of them.
This year has been a challenging one in many ways. But it’s brought us unparrelelled opportunities for learning important lessons, especially the importance of character.
The ultimate tragedy of our times is that decent, naturally luminous people get snatched from the light within them by disturbed characters and have a hard time finding their way back.
If ever there were a time for being the light we want to see in the world it’s now.
If ever there were a time for the loving energy within us to shine, it’s now. But that takes courage and determination. And most of all, it takes faith.
Empowering attitudes are ways of looking at life and the world that are both freeing and confidence building.
To become empowered partners in abusive relationships have to see through their manipulator’s tactics, knowing in their heart how to distinguish a victim from a victimizer.
Blaming others is not unconscious defense. It’s a conscious tactic to throw you on the defensive while refusing to internalize a behavioral norm.
Do we all need therapy? Perhaps not. Could most of us benefit from a little therapy? Probably, especially if it’s the right kind.
A healthy ego is ultimately all about getting the balance right. But that’s a real challenge, given the norms of our times.
