Don’t let anyone make you feel small

Don’t let anyone make you feel small.

For sure feel small by a tree with a huge trunk to lean against, branches stretching skyward, roots digging wide and wild. Let this make you feel small and lean in for shelter…and maybe a hug.

Or let a rock make you feel small as it holds up the sky. Feels its age, its solidity and feel humble by its side.

By all means feel small by a river as it floods and carves its path through land, feeding, creating, destroying, carrying, depositing as it flows.

But a person, like you (and me), who wants to make you feel small, is none of these.  They pretend to be huge when they feel small. They want to sink you low to feel high themselves, make you feel fragile so they feel strong.

Someone who wants to make you feel small, feels small them self.  Do not fear their shadow, step around them and continue with your growth.

I have over 30 years of experience and qualification in various therapeutic and meditation/mindfulness based approaches. I work with change. Some changes we chose, others happen to us.  Sometimes we know we want to change but don't know how. Sometimes we don't want to change but external events or people are forcing us to change. The menopause, children leaving home, the end of a relationship or job, becoming a parent, coming out, bereavement are just some of the personal changes I support people with. I also work with people who want to make changes to their life and wider world in response to social issues such as Covid, the climate crisis and racial, sexual and gender inequalities. Times are changing whether we want them to or not and we need to be nimble, agile, curious and open in order to part of the new story emerging. Work with me to get clear on what matters to you, what makes your heart sing and what kind of future you want for yourself and those you love. It is possible to live differently, get in touch to explore how.
