    Reclaim your worth

    Peace is most ravaged when we convince ourselves that we were treated badly by others, or by someone we trusted, because we weren’t good enough for them.

    More ways to destroy trust…

    Our consideration of trust is often limited to promises or follow through on something that was clearly agreed with another.

  • To give up silently

    To give up silently

    “When you give up on something, it becomes a weighty silence that you carry within you for the rest of your life. It’s a quiet acceptance that what once was the centre of your being will never be a part of your being again. The silence is the only gesture that will honour such loss, […]

    The twins of love and pain

    We see in the world around us that which occupies the most space in our hearts. When our hearts are filled with love and affection, we find no place for hate or bitterness. When we hold space in our life for justice for past oppression, we prevent that space from being filled with the love […]
