I See You

I think everyone could find someone to say these words to that are shared here. The Year is about to end. I think reflecting on the past year and letting family and friends  know how special they have been could be a great thing to do between Christmas and New Years. There is sometimes a let down feeling during this time. This might be a great way to counter this and turn a negative into a positive. Friends and family are not mind readers. People with mental problems are just individuals with a special set of circumstances. The message here is not just for them, but for everyone. ………………………..

A Mind Divided

Sometimes it takes a shock to wake up.

Yesterday I was slapped into a deeper appreciation for all the kind, generous and courageous people in my life.  I see you, and I’m so very grateful for you.

Thank you for doing the hard work with me of untangling our misperceptions so that we can see each other more clearly.

Thank you for sticking with me when I’ve scared you.

Thank you for teaching me what kindness looks like.

Thank you for understanding when I disappoint or fall short of your vision of me.

Thank you for being a role model of Not Taking Things Personally.

Thank you for your humor and making me laugh out loud when I need that most.

Thank you for coming to me when I’ve hurt you so that I can make amends.

Thank you for hugs, and Kleenex, and open invitations.

Thank you for all…
