We don’t wake up every morning saying ..”How can I ruin my child’s life today?” Well most of us do NOT! Our parents didn’t either. They were fighting their own inner battle. We are a product of our environment. We’ve all heard, “We become who we spend time with.”
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” ~Jim Rohn
Over 90% of families suffer from some type of dysfunction in the home along with all the trauma some children are facing leave lasting damaging results that limit them from being their best self. Our wiring comes from our life experiences. As parents we often feel hopeless, or tell ourselves, “That’s just how teenagers are, or I’ve tried everything.” We often don’t understand ourselves, making it very difficult to understand our teenager (creatures).
We are living in a world of rapidly developing technology, fast paced doing. We are Human beings..not Human doings. If we don’t take the time to create balance, heal ourselves, learn coping skills and strategies to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and break- through to learn what we can do differently, that is starts with us, the patterns we learned sub-consciously will continue through a dysfunctional cycle. Our conflicts cannot be resolved in the same energy that created them. When we raise our awareness we are able to see how we are showing up to others and bringing our past pain into the relationships we have with our children, taking it out on them and reacting from stress/conflict rather than from our core (best self) and responding. Be kind to yourself, you love your children, question is.. do you know how to love yourself? We can’t properly love others and meet their needs when we don’t even know how to love ourselves.
There is much hope! My mission is to help raise the awareness in as many individuals and families as I can to create more peace and love in the home. When you think you’ve tried everything…you haven’t if you were trying to resolve conflict with the same hopeless and frustration thinking. It’s not your fault, and there’s much that can be done to heal ourselves, help our children and have a happier, safer home!
