Forgiveness. It is hard. And often misunderstood as accepting someone’s bad behaviour or things that have happened that have hurt you.

Actually, forgiveness is not about liking what has happened, or agreeing with it. It is not about accepting it as right. And it is definitively not about forgetting.

Forgiveness is all about releasing ourselves from the pain that it has caused. Accepting that it was incredibly painful. It is about a choice to make some space for how you feel, and then to let go.

Ultimately though, it is about you and your relationship with your feelings about what has happened.

It does not mean that someone deserves a place in your life. But the pain does not.

We all have things that comfort and soothe us, things that help us fill our tanks when we are down, struggling or overwhelmed.

What is “better than cake” for you?

Rest well 🙌

Over the last few months especially, I have had several occasions on which I needed to make hard calls. Not hard in terms of knowing the right thing for myself or the practice. But hard because on each occasion I knew that there would be someone who would not be happy with my decision, who would be disappointed with me. My decisions were not made in judgement, or with criticism, but according to my own personal values, and the practice values that we as a team work by at ALSLP.

I care about others, and it makes me sad and uncomfortable to know that someone is disappointed or hurt as a result of a decision I have had to make. It was never my intention to do so.

But I also know that it is not possible to always please everyone. In trying to do so, I would end up pleasing no one. Least of all myself. And sacrificing the culture of our practice.

In the end, all I can do is make authentic values based decisions, and deliver these with care and compassion, for those receiving the message that may be upsetting.

Oh Naomi Malone...I do believe that things happens for a reason. Whoever or whatever I do hope they felt your sincerity of compassion.

The right decisions are often the hardest ones to make. You are loved and respected regardless Naomi x

In therapy, our mission is to help those we have the privilege to work with to be their best selves, to be the person in the world they want to be. In order to help with this, we must dig deeper than surface behaviour and attaching superficial labels such as “attention seeking” or “defiant”. We must work out what is underneath the behaviour they would like to change, and to help support them to achieve their goals.
