being yourself

Hi there I am new to this, so I hope that you can bare with me--I am from New Zealand on the other side of the world, there was a time in my life that I thought that I was crazy, and you know those who thought they were experts were the ones that put me there (in my head anyway)well over time, I decided not to continue with the theapy and you know it was the best that I did for me (its not for everyone) I decided who I wanted to be and have now continued down that path for the last 6 years, once I knew that I was not who they kept telling me i was , I went back to those who dammed me and let them know that they were book people and didnt know anything about life...I have lived on a natural high now ever since, never had a bad day, life has taken me down many great journies since, and will continue to for many years to come.  The greatest part was being able to communicate with all my children, let them know I was sorry for what I had put them through and today I am not justa loved  mum but a very much loved grandmother of 16 wonderful beautiful granchildren many who have a varity of nuerological disorders (inherited) they all have great qualities and will make a great life for themselves because I will not allow the negatives to intrude while they are growing - Thanks Dr Phil you re an inspiration even in NZ..regards and love Moira

Lyne,

 

I am so glad to hear you doing well!  We are planning our vacation, and it looks like we will be going north, to Vancouver Island.  We live in Idaho, so this will be a treat for us.  We love to kayak, and this looks like a wonderful place to sea kayak.

 

Life is good.  I am trying to stay on track with my goals while taking a moment to play.  This is hard for me, as I tend to become pretty focused. 

 

I hope healing from your operation will go smoothly and quickly!  I rejoice with you for your happines!

Teri

Moira,

 

Something I have learned is that a good therapist will listen and guide you to find your own answers.  Quite often we know the appropriate answers for our life's challenges, it just takes saying them outloud to be recognized.  Good job! 

 

It is wonderful that you get to share this gift with your children and grandchildren.  Often we don't go towards our lives confused on purpose...and our children usually figure that out.  Your gratitude shows, and I celebrate it with you!

Finding Authentic Self

Hello everyone, I am so happy to see this message board.  I have been struggling for years trying to find out who I am and why there is always something tugging at me to listen.  I started read Self Matters a few days ago and it was amazing - it was like the book was written about me.  I am looking forward to all of the hard work that is going to be involved to find out who I am.  I look forward to talking with all of you for inspiration and advice.

I believe all of us are on a journey throughout life. It takes many paths and many trials before we become who we are intended to be. Thearpists, friends, problems, failures, successes all help us learn (if we choose to do so) who we are and how we want to live. As we breathe we continue to be in the process of being. ld
