“The only person you can now or ever change is yourself. The only person that it is your business to control is yourself.” ~Melody Beattie
Living with a person with chemical dependency shapes you into a control freak with unhealthy survival mechanisms. Codependency is one of them. The only way to change is to be willing to face the truth and commit to deep inner healing.
The tricky part about growth and healing is that once you become aware of your shortcomings and trauma sabotaging techniques, it is easy to move from practical awareness to self-judgment.
Mind mapping is one of the most effective ways to capture and connect various thoughts.
A mind map is a visual diagram that helps you connect information around a central concept. You start from the centre, and then use branches to connect new concepts together. There is great mind mapping software out there, but the beauty of mind mapping is that it only requires a pen and paper.
Contrary to popular opinion, mind mapping is not just a note-taking technique . It can be used for brainstorming, collaboration, and more. It’s an incredibly powerful and flexible thinking tool.
“At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
Living with joy doesn’t hurt anything. It doesn’t diminish your drive or ambition. It doesn’t make you less intelligent. And it sure doesn’t make you any less important.
Living with joy makes you free, and that freedom reminds of everything that is possible. Even the serious things.
“The truth is that there is no such thing as a negative emotion. Emotions only become ‘bad’ and have a negative effect on us when they are suppressed, denied, or unexpressed.” ~Colin Tipping
Emotions are constantly and powerfully guiding our lives, even when we are not aware of them, even when we do not feel them or are convinced that we can exclude them from our experiences.
Emotions give us precious, sometimes indispensable information about what is best for us, about the best choices we can make, about how to behave.
It is always a challenge to deal with people who are illogical. You might identify them as illogical, but they may be unaware. Instead of getting emotional or angry about the situation, use your intellect to counter their faulty logic to get them back on track.
Once you feel like you are making headway in the conversation, gauge how successful the argument is by paying attention to the kind of response you get from your opponent – if they seem more open-minded then continue debating further, but if there is no change in their demeanor, move onto another topic.
