The Freedom to Choose

Nov 03, 2021

If you've been using certain social media platforms over the past 18 months, you will know the level of censorship and vetting which has become the norm. Sometimes it seems that almost every post comes with a notice or warning (if it mentions a certain topic) and it's not uncommon for people to land in 'jail' for speaking their mind. 

And then when you move from these censored platforms and start posting on 'freedom of speech' platforms, you can immediately feel...

Are you tolerating unfair treatment?

Feb 03, 2020

Have you experienced, or do you still experienceunfair, humiliating treatment from people in your life? Maybe your partner, a friend, someone at work, a parent, or even a child? 

I cannot tell you how common this is. Every day around the world, hundreds of thousands of people are being downtrodden, taken advantage of and abused. It's an epidemic.

Jan 26, 2020

"For the already-deeply wounded and traumatized person, they will not understand unfair treatment or behaviour is unacceptable, and will tolerate it, without knowing how to either recognize it or stop it".

I don't mean literally.

I mean they can be anyone: a friend, partner, parent, child, work colleague, teacher, mentor... anyone.

How to tell if you're in an abusive relationship

Jan 27, 2019
Every time I was shouted at, criticized or berated, I would feel terrible inside. I felt hurt, frustrated, hopeless and powerless. It felt awful. And a part of me kept saying 'this just isn't right. Surely it can't be right to be treated this way'?
I don't share this story very often because it's not the sort of thing one talks about with strangers, or even friends.
I'm sure you know what I mean if you're currently in the same situation.
Fortunately I'm not...

The Unseen and Painful Consequences of Being Bullied

Jan 27, 2019
"People bully others, or tolerate being bullied by others, in an unconscious effort to protect themselves, either emotionally or physically, or both". 

Bullying and unfair treatment can appear in many shapes and forms, in all walks of life.

It can (and does) happen at school, university... in the workplace... on holiday... at home.
