She often felt humiliated and ashamed. So she learnt to laugh at the comments and decided it didn’t matter that she was dumb.
However, as a 70-year-old woman, Tracey still remembers she was always the dumb kid at school. As a 70-year-old woman, with deep wisdom gleaned from the rich tapestry of her life, Tracey still felt dumb. Even on her deathbed, Tracey will still feel dumb. That’s the saddest part; it doesn’t have to be that way.”

This is a true story. I hope its not true for you?
Please be careful which words you choose to say after:
"I AM …” For they have the power to determine your fate. Believe me.
Don’t be a Tracey!
But seriously, are you?

That’s what she said.
I choked on my take-away latte at her manipulation of that fact.
How can anyone be a ‘bit’ violent?
They either are violent or not violent, surely?
Violence is an escalating global issue. Nowhere does it hit home more than when it happens in the home. Sons see fathers bashing their mothers. “So, that’s how you treat women” their young minds think.
Girls see fathers bash their mothers. “So, I’d better not do anything to deserve it” their young minds reason.
The mother does not leave. “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t’ she whispers through bruised and swollen lips.
The root cause of violence is anger. From asking thousands of our nation’s leaders in hundreds of leadership workshops throughout Australia and New Zealand “Why do we get angry?” one reason rises to the top of those fierce flames.
How would you answer the question: Why do you get angry?
We get angry because we don't get our own way. Like little children with our lip jutting out, we stamp our foot and want the world to dance to our tune. Because our way is the right way ... isn't it?
Notice this next time you feel the red mist descend and the heat rising. Be courageous enough to ask yourself "Why am I getting angry; what is the real reason behind this?" Until you do, you will continue to roast in the flames of anger. It doesn't have to be that way. Anger kills ... others and you, sadly.
