Social Media – A healthy relationship.


The wonderfuI world of Social Media!!.

I recently reviewed my own relationship with social media by having a bit of a ‘detox’ for a few days.  At first it was a little tricky , I would find myself with my phone in my hand looking at the first page of Instagram before I had even realised what I was doing.  This soon went after a couple of days and whilst I did miss my daily dose of Donald Trumps tweets!!, I didn’t feel like I had lost an arm or was hugely missing out on anything!.

This particular post has taken me a longer time to write than anticipated.  That is because I am having to draw on some very personal experiences , and as I have mentioned before I am extremely protective of my private life and my privacy, so this is a real challenge for me and it means I am very much out of my comfort zone.  I also want to do this in as much of a respectful way as I can,  there is a very fine line between blurting out your story and becoming gossip fodder, and writing about experiences with the hope of helping not only yourself come to terms with things, but also hoping you will strike a chord in a positive way with others to help them turn around a situation they may be faced with.  My aim is for the latter.Read More »

Broken People Break People


How to ‘break’ the cycle….

If .. 

“If you can keep your head when all about you
Are loosing theirs and blaming it on you..
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowances for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or be lied about , but dont deal in lies,
Or being hated, dont give way to hating,
And yet dont look to good, nor talk too wise……”
