Testimonial from Rebecca

Rebecca the cat

When I first met Richard I had just lost my significant other and I was in a sorry state.  I wasn’t eating properly and I would bite at my skin so it was covered in sores.  I was so frightened that I would spend hours hiding behind the sideboard.

Six months later and the transformation is remarkable.  I’ve put on weight, my skin is clear, I am confident enough to defend my boundaries when I need to, and I’m able to fully relax and enjoy being fussed over.

Words are not enough to express the gratitude I feel.  How about a half eaten bird?

Positive thinking

I don’t know who wrote this but I like it:

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his English class one day.  “In English,” he said, “a double negative forms a positive.  In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative.  However, there is no language where in a double positive can form a negative.”

A voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah, right.”

It sounds like “yeah” and “right” were more complex than I thought …

Managing assholes, step one

I saw this quote by William Gibson:

“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes”

If you are then step 2 is to consider the question:

‘Why are you there?’ … what benefit are you getting from being in this situation?

Step 3:

‘What if you left?’ … imagine the consequence of leaving this situation with these assholes and notice any fears.

Step 4:

Find the courage to face into these fears and move towards and through them

Step 5:

Look again at the people surrounding you.
