Comments12/07/2017 #1 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Deb 🐝 Helfrich, you wrote, "There is one more thing to say before I get up from this piano stool of regret. To please my father, I arranged, on my own, to play the piano at my 8th grade graduation. This was 100% for them. I remember some surprise. But I remember no gratitude or pride or even a simple well done." I can't imagine how you felt after you succeeded to play. I can understand why the Church experience bothered you with the organ. It brought up a lot of pain that you must have kept deep within your psyche. Eating became comfort for you. I'm sorry that your parents were unable to show their pride and share how proud they were of you. I can't imagine what that does to a child.
I think it's great that you are becoming more self-aware. Once we are able to dig deep within, we begin to understand so much more about ourselves in the present. As you know, I'm in therapy and doing a lot of soul searching/ re-visiting right now and we both understand healing takes time. Sending good thoughts your way, you've got this g/f!!

Comments14/06/2017 #22 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#21 Hi Charlene. What positive energy and love I just experienced from reading this. See this is what made me fall in love with this platform and it's people.
I had downloaded your podcast last night to listen to it this morning . So refreshing, bubbly and I already feel like I know you so much. Your interview was inspiring. Everything we go through prepares us for something greater and I love the courage you have to say NO when you have to say NO. And that can;t't be to anything our work clients, partners, friends etc etc That's the biggest hurdle to cross and if we can be the wind that passes through these obstacles we can move in so many directions. I think my favorite @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee had written something about it this morning. I must find time and read it :)
Thank you @Charlene Norman I am confident but scared not of failures but then don't we have atleast those experiences to learn from and my biggest lessons were from difficulties :)13/06/2017 #21 Charlene Norman@🐝 Fatima G. Williams How I wish we lived a bit closer. Over a glass of wine, I would share my story with you. It is funny. We all have to go through rocky roads of crap in our lives we never ever would have imagined. YET, when we come out the other side, we come out so much stronger, so much more resilient AND so much more at peace. All those lessons we learn are so worth it. And the funny thing is, we wouldn't change a darn thing, would we? I toast your success hon. To you and every other person who has made the decision to put family first and then savoured all the beauty in the so-called second-rate life that never was. High fives. And PS. You will eventually get everything and MORE you ever dreamed of. I promise. I have seen it always come true for those who never had a straight path.05/06/2017 #11 Irene 🐝 Rodriguez EscolarFor through difficulties I learnt the value of family and relationships.

Williams#3 I agree with you Ken the teachers who studied with me still in contact now sure do live in their own world. And Oh My you were right about the myriad of questions for which a growing mind seeks answers. I still remember how they had me dumbfounded at some of the questions they'd put forward.
Eventually I would love to do that. Sit and be amazed at the questions children these days have and learn along with them. Thank you @Ken Boddie Someone once said "Everything we go through in this life is preparing us for something bigger." Have an awesome day.05/06/2017 #3 Ken BoddieYou may think this strange, Fatima, but I'm glad that circumstances prevented
you from teaching school children when you were fresh out of schooling. When I think back to my own education, the best teachers and the ones who had most empathy and understanding for the myriad of questions for which a growing mind seeks answers, were those who had experienced life outside the cocoon of the education system and were able to demonstrate life's ups and downs in a world of conflicting passions. I hope that you eventually may return to the classroom, at whichever level of teaching you may choose, better armed with your own set of life examples. Thanks for sharing your great passion for teaching others.
- 31/05/2017Toxic people try to control you.
Strange as it might sound, people who aren’t in control of their own lives tend to want to control yours. The toxic look for ways to control others, either through overt methods or subtle manipulation.
Toxic people disregard your boundaries.
If you’re always telling someone to stop behaving a certain way and they only continue, that person is probably toxic. Respecting the boundaries of others comes naturally to well adjusted adults. The toxic person thrives on violating them.
Toxic people take without giving.
Give and take is the lifeblood of true friendship. Sometimes you need a hand, and sometimes your friend does, but in the end it more or less evens out. Not with the toxic person — they’re often there to take what they can get from you, as long as you’re willing to give it.
Toxic people are always “right.”
They’re going to find ways to be right even when they’re not. They rarely (if ever) admit when they’ve messed up, miscalculated or misspoken.
Toxic people aren’t honest.
I’m not talking about natural exaggerations, face-saving or white lies here. I’m talking about blatant and repeated patterns of dishonesty.
Toxic people love to be victims.
The toxic revel in being a victim of the world. They seek to find ways to feel oppressed, put down and marginalized in ways they clearly are not. This might take the form of excuses, rationalizations, or out-and-out blaming.
Toxic people don’t take responsibility.
Part of the victim mentality comes from a desire to avoid responsibility. When the world is perpetually against them, their choices and actions can’t possibly be responsible for the quality of their life — it’s “just the way things are.”

Comments20/04/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitLashon Ha-Ra is definitely an ethic we should be more mindful of. Since we live in a soundbite culture and engage in superficial talk of short messaging, gossip is not one of those things we think too deeply about. We should because it reminds us the power words have on us.
