~ The Only thing Harder than Walking away, is Not Looking Back ~

In respect of ‘World Mental Health Day’ I felt this was a very appropriate quote as once we can get on the path to a new way of thinking it is still very hard not to look back and slip into our old ways once again.
‘I walked away hoping I had the strength to never look back. But every step became harder………’ ~ I hear this time and time again from my clients and this is where you need the support, motivation and the accountability from a mentor, loved one, medical practitioner, coach…….etc. You don’t have to walk the path alone.
~ The Only thing Harder than Walking away, is Not Looking Back ~
Ok, so here you are, arriving at a turning point in your life, in your 40’s or 50’s where sometimes there doesn’t seem a lot to smile about. Fed up with your job, not had the chance of a career, relationships have become boring, your children have flown the nest embarking on their own lives, your body is definitely not what it used to be, your weight is out of control………? You’ve made that step to move forward and turn your back on your old ways but why is it so hard not to slip back into old habits. Surely there must be an easier way of doing things. Well there is………………….by seeking support.

This quote brilliantly says just that, we only control ourselves and have no power over anyone else. I learnt this the hard way having spent a lifetime trying to change my mother having endured years of frustrating battles desperately trying to make her the person I wanted her to be and getting her to accept me as the person I was. Nothing ever changed, except the arguments, the guilt, the pain all got worse over time.
Until, I decided to make the change in myself, then everything changed and I have never looked back, I have managed to walk away from old wounds that I do not need to visit again. I totally repaired the relationship with my mother by working on myself alone. You too can do this, anyone can do this who is open to change, you can leave your old life permanently and move on. Support is right here, you don’t have to do this alone.
