It is so easy to stay with what you know. What's familiar and for some easier. Even if it isn't a happier place, the thought of changing things is more scary. What if you had more knowledge and support, would that make the changes you seek less scary? #selflove #selfcare #selfdevelopment #SelfImprovement #recovery #acoa #coa #alcoholism #alcoholabuse #alcoholmisuse #lightbulbmoment #mentalhealth

For those affected by someone's drinking now or in the past, they'll be needing support. Please tell others because you never know who's affected. One of your friends might be and you won't know it. My Change Your Mind Facebook group helps them feel connected.

With an #alcoholic parent it can really impact on who you are. You can feel like you have to be perfect, change and be "good" to be accepted. Often #childrenofalcoholics don't know who they are, they've spent too long compromising himself.

Today I managed to go for a swim, it was so warm, so much so I struggled to swim for too long. I got a lot of work done today,. Enjoyed a nice home cooked but loaf (recipe courtesy of my friend). Then drove to have a family dinner for my nephew's 16th and packed myself up all ready for a #workshop at @bangor_university tomorrow. How was your day and what did you achieve or are grateful for today? #selflove #selfcare #selfdevelopment #SelfImprovement #recovery #acoa #coa #alcoholism #alcoholabuse #alcoholmisuse #lightbulbmoment #mentalhealth #inspirationalspeaker #reallifestory

I've been reflecting on how well I've been connecting to myself. The honest answer, is not as well as I could have. I did some #innerchild work and saw myself as a kid. I saw my #alcoholic Dad and forgave him. I felt sadness and I miss him. What are your reflections? DM me

I'm very passionate about changing perceptions & judgements of #alcoholmisuse. It's complex and I'm working hard to stop the #trivialisation of #alcohol. There is no need for it and we need to wake up. #media #companies and people need to learn to respect it, not joke about it. #selflove #selfcare #selfdevelopment #SelfImprovement #recovery #acoa #coa #alcoholism #alcoholabuse #alcoholmisuse #lightbulbmoment #mentalhealth

It can be so isolating and #lonely when you feel no one gets where you're coming from. They don't understand you or your feelings. Living with an #alcoholic is really hard. I felt so lonely. So disconnected and never felt good enough for my dad. I had no idea how much it affected me until years later. When I went to #alanon for the first time I didn't feel weird and odd. These people were like me. I decided to write my story to educate others..provide tools that helped me and connect with those that feel helpless. Check out more about my book Transition.

Today I celebrate the help I've been given by my coach. He's so intuitive it blows my mind. It's so important to work through what holds you back. I've also started to really get in touch with my feelings through #meditation and my coaching. It isn't as hard for me these days to embrace those difficult feelings as I have faith that the tears will help free me. There is always something to learn and work through. Building #resilience helps cope. What have you got to celebrate today? #selfcare #selfdevelopment #SelfImprovement

After a lot of work I realised there are similarities in #childrenofalcoholics in how they feel, think and behave. Often struggling in their adult life with #relationships, #trustingpeople, #lettingo and more. I decided to create an #onlinecourse to help.
