I’ve Had An Idea… (Livestream)

I’m considering doing a series of vids on spirituality – this could include topics such as reincarnation, meditation, visioning, journaling. The wonderful thing about spirituality is you choose your own path – there is no right or wrong. You do not even have to consider yourself spiritual to benefit from spiritual practices such as mindfulness […]

Discussing Past Problems

I had an opportunity today to chat with my daughters class teacher and give him any information that helps him gain a better understanding of my daughter. It felt really freeing to be honest…I spent so many years being dishonest and today I don’t need to be. Opening up with someone can be really enpowering.

My Relationship With My Ex

I got asked to discuss how my relationship with my ex-husband was and is today. Do we co-parent well or are there still issues today?

BPD and Sexual Promiscuity

An impulsive reckless behaviour that we may exhibit might be sleeping with strangers. We want to feel loved and secure and often mistakenly think sleeping with someone is the answer to that – which is never is. In fact it more often than not makes us feel so much worse.

BPD, Clinginess and Jealousy

With BPD we have a fear of abandonement, we have low self esteem – and we have intense emotions – it’s no wonder we start feeling jealous and then acting on it. We really do need to learn to rationalise things though because our jealousy and clinginess often pushes those we love away.

Depression

What is the difference between a low mood and depression? How does depression appear outwardly. I forgot to mention in the video that sometimes .I would literally feel nothing when I was depressed – I was numb inside.  Often  when we are depressed we do not even know we are depressed.  If you think you […]

Jealous Of Everyone

I spent years and years eaten up with jealousy and resentment. I never realised my jealousy goes all the way back to when I was a child.  It is with hindsight that I can see where  I was jealous and the reasons for my jealousy.  Recovery has helped be let go of the negative feelings. […]

BPD, My Kids and Me

I received a comment the other day from a lady who had been really hurt by her BPD mother.  Whilst I understand her hurt and anger I have to disagree that all people with BPD are the same.  I discuss my own children in this video and why I don’t believe I minimize things in […]

I did this video for anyone out there that has or is considering suicide.  I had multiple suicide attempts over the years and it is only now that I am so grateful they were unsuccessful, as life has so much to offer me now.  There was a time when I thought I would never escape […]
