In today’s article I am going to present Part 2 of my article Second Chance to Live — Lessons Learned and Shared with a Support Group in video presentation format. I create video presentation of my articles to offer the information to individuals who learn through watching and listening. Below is a brief excerpt from Part 2 of the 2 Part article series.
“I can learn how to talk, trust and feel through sharing my experience, strength and hope and by listening to other people share their experience, strength and hope. I have the power to choose in life. When I am being critical of other people, I am usually being critical of myself. If I am at peace with myself, I find that I am usually at peace with other people. My perceptions are usually impacted by the way in which I frame my experience. Consequently, as I change the way that I frame my experience, my perceptions change. If some one throws me the ball (wants me to engage in some way that is not productive) and I do not catch the ball, the game is over. I don’t have to engage in the drama or the argument. I have come to realize that when I am getting a double message from someone, that entails “come close, go away” that I am participating in crazy making. My own crazy making. With my awareness, I need to detach myself from such relationships. My experience has taught me that these relationships do not end well for me.
Approval seeking and people pleasing are red flags for me. If I find myself engaging in these behaviors, I need to examine my motivations and ask, “What am I wanting / seeking to gain from the approval seeking and people pleasing?”. People pleasing and approval seeking are indicators that I need to make peace with myself. I am enough, just for today. Humility is not humiliation as humility encourages identification, but humiliation promotes comparison. I needed to make peace with God, by making peace with my Dad. I need to remember that the life that I am living is not a dress rehearsal. What I do with my time between the Dash (date born — date deceased) matters. I can have a significant impact upon my generation, one day at a time. I need to remember to not give up on my dreams, although I may have to modify how I go about achieving / realizing my dreams. Although I may have people in my life who are unable to “get it”, for what ever reason; I need to remember that I am the one who needs to” get it”.”
