I went to various catholic girls’ schools for many years, including five years in boarding school. Some good times, some ultimately deletable. Probably like you, the concept of being a ‘nice’ or ‘good’ girl was force-fed into me. It’s taken me years, a lot of personal development and self-examination to release it. To give myself […]
Our lives are constantly changing. In our own world – relationships, health, work, finances, plans. Externally we need only consider politics, world happenings, climate. All these changes impact how we are, how we show up in our lives. Sometimes this impact can cause a deep level of fear. Do we keep on being how we […]
How are you getting on with having a tad more self-compassion for yourself?
One of my other fave knowings about SC is: you can stop beating yourself up.

Jan 2011……… I was hunched over in pain in front of my gastro-consultant. I believed I was 7.5st weight. I looked and spoke like an 85 yr old rather than the 55yr old me. I’d been visiting him over the previous ten years with increasing levels […]
