When Life Hurts

Relationship Phobia
    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).

    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.

Please remember that the various "disorders" are classifications that mental health professionals
use to narrow things down to help them arrive at the causes of the challenges and "ailments":
they are NOT real. It is time to demystify them, and the site is continually being updated and
revised to facilitate this. Since there is a lot of information here, many (or most) pages are in
transition. I hope they may be helpful to you.
