When Life Hurts
Introduction:
The many shades of being and behaviour human beings come in, is at times totally
baffling, sometimes frustrating or bewildering, and sometimes annoying or hurtful.
And at other times people seem to rise above themselves and are caring,
joyful and considerate.
*
There are those who seem blithely or blissfully unaware of the effects their behaviour,
words and actions have on others; or are aware but don't understand the fuss;
and there are those who are totally aware, but couldn't care less.

* On the opposite side of that, are those who are on the receiving end of the
above, desperately wondering how anyone could be so unaware, or hurtfully to
know that the other is aware but appears to have actually chosen to be (or stay)
that way. And want to understand it, or discover what they can do about it, or not.

Untangling it is not easy: there are "Issues", "Challenges", "Syndromes", "Disorders",
"Spectrums" and all sorts of other names and labels attempting to make
some sort of order into that seeming chaos.

I do not have "
THE" answer(s) for you, but I can help YOU find the answer(s) you
need. (The answer(s) are
already inside you - you'll rediscover them on your
healing journey, here and elsewhere).

My intention, purpose, and hope is to be helpfully informative. And also hopefully,
thought provoking, but never persuasive or judgemental.  I have nothing to sell:
I simply provide "Roadside Assistance", so to speak, for Healing and Recovery
in a
Fear-based Shaming-Blaming culture that is often very much
Fear-Based: a Culture of Dysfunction - but not as widespread as it may seem, or feel.
But you'll find many encouraging examples of many, many exceptions to it, here.

There are two important truths you'll rediscover as you browse the site:
1 - YOU are not your
"Label", your "Disorder", or your "Disease", and,
2 - OTHERS are not their
"Label", their "Disorder", or their "Disease", etc.

The Help and Information here are not "Psychological", "Philosophical", nor "Theological":
rather it is based on the wisdom garnered by humans overt the ages - and
added-to by former clients, students - and through observing people in
many places and situations during a long time-frame.
They are based on Life in all its glory.

LIFE is meant to be Lived!

Life is NOT: your job, career, "role" or profession; those are only the means of
income that allows you to live Life!
Life is NOT: your household and property chores, tasks and maintenance; these are
simply the things that enhance and maintain the quality and atmosphere of the
place where you do much of  your "living".

Life IS:
  • your personal state of being in all your wholeness.
  • being at peace in harmony with yourself and with your loved ones.
  • the actualizing and development of your full spiritual and emotional potential:
who you were meant to be - in all your fullness.
  • a celebration of your relationship with yourself - and with others; for it is the
foundation and basis from which the inner strength comes to handle and cope
all the things life brings you.

"Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation.
Use it!"
"We're all walking each other home".
~Ram Dass

Every Journey begins with a single step.
Yours too; your
First step . . .
No one can walk with you till you take that first step, beautiful person.
