You may know yourself, but that doesn’t mean that’s how you have to be. Identity, like memory (or because of it), is malleable, so you can change your identity. Watch this TED video because it explains how memory works, and, from direct experience, challenges common misunderstandings about how our past must indelibly watermark our future.

Judith Claybourne explains.

One Response to “It’s Never Too Late to Have a Happy Childhood”

  1. Feelings and situations
    How often do you let your feelings dictate how you react to a situation.
    Something in the past, in the moment or in the future.
    Feelings are natural, but believe it or not, we do have control over them.
    The next time someone says something that you see as an attack on you personally and it makes you feel bad, remember you are the only one suffering by holding that thought, as they are oblivious. 9 times out of 10 we have misread the meaning especially by text or email. The intention to upset or hurt was not there, and even if it was, try just observing it and letting it go. The feeling will only pull you down and the mind escalate the story until you have created a whole novel in your head.
    I’m not saying it’s easy, but I have tried it and can feel the relief when you let it go.
    Feelings have their purpose but negative ones can only bring us down.
    Angela.

How to Adjust to Change

Change

Resisting change is not only a waste of time, it also makes it harder to deal with. Following advice from other people is probably not the right way to go either (you can still read this though).

Change can be difficult, but it needn’t be as big a problem as we often make it.

Brief Therapy for Depression

Most depressions can be cured or substantially alleviated yet we still pretend that they can’t. Hand-wringing and attempts at sympathy don’t help, enlightenment and common understanding will. Treatment guidelines are explicit, brief problem-solving talk-therapy is a proven treatment.
We should be accepting and treating depression as the common ailment it is, not shrouding it in mystery and pretending that we don’t know what to do about it.
