Being able to think...

  THINK  Listen and Learn.

[Share interrupted. Big yellow dog needs letting out- a golden retriever.]

She has her nose on my thigh, as I write here... 

...anyway I developed a technique for me- a form of journalling, I called "Squirrelling."

And it works well for me. It had enabled me to concentrate and to think.

 

I think the being a passive, consumer orientated person is an impediment to progress.

I am starting to recapitulate- to review my progress.

I pulled out my copy of "Codependent No More".

reflection was:- that I had seen- through books and media- Dr Brene Brown go through this same process

of self discovery.

In the end it is about "walking the talk' one way or another.

Have several yards, or metres of recovery/discovery books is a good indication...

 

Other cover Melody says:- How to stop controlling others and start caring for yourself."

My turning point was when I heard at a meeting:- "This is a selfish programme."

"No, it is not," I thought to myself.

I vowed that I did not want to be self centred.

I wanted to be centred on self.

I wanted to be actively connected with other people- and I am today.

Out cycling I just smile and say gidday.

I no longer have that bland featureless face.

I can open up and smile.

My voice and body language is fluid.

 

Melody's key word- on her blurb I changed.

-Controlling-.

I changed that word to ~manage~.

to connect, to communicate, to negotiate.

 

And it has worked, by and large. smile ...
