When it comes down to managing life,
coping with tough times,
difficult relationships -
it comes down to what is going on inside you
the beautiful human.
We can only be with,
manage, cope with another who is kicking off in your space
IF we manage our own emotions.
That internal BHP.
FEELING CRAP .......
we can learn to manage - learn skills like
emotional literacy - emotional intelligence.
We can have our 5-A-DAY in Emotionally
Follow me here
AND I am available to conduct facilitation and training in these areas of life.
Get a life = get skilled up - we can do it .............
THIS is part of a #BlobTree Tool called 'emotional resilience' - learn how to use it - connect with others.

I have been doing it for years - once with as many as 30,000 people.
Often with hundreds
sometimes with people sat around round table in a conference with cabaret style seating.
Sometimes when they are standing in a circle.
I get people to touch their unique finger tips - one had reaching out one way and another the other way.
Beautiful to see a network of finger tips touching - a beautiful net of humans who are smiling at the same time.
You could call it an ice-breaker.
With meaning !
You may have seen my Pipturesques on Pipstagram on this page or on the the Instagram page + Facebook + Twitter - I do it once and then they filter into these social networks AND my website here.
I love collecting Pipturesques of groups touching tips and myself with anyone appropriate - Charlie here was obliging but not really communicating - poor eye contact, expressionless, no smiling - actually - he could have been almost cold and motionless - not very much alive.
I will carry on touching tips around the world - even with famous static/frozen/cold humans - because I love it.
Setting a climate of trust is always a big aim.
Encouraging people to take a risk for their own development - a small one first and then moving on into the experiential where we all begin to feel things - and then dig into feelings too.
Most behaviour comes out of feelings and, as we all know, some of that behaviour is not good - with not good feelings.
I yearn to understand all this.
Each time I work with a group - every-time - I am learning from those present and my own feelings/behaviour and digging into my thought processes.
If I can encourage someone to get on the road to 'becoming' - that is a great step .............. a journey of change has began ...
....a chosen journey toward becoming whole -
The Road Less Travelled

#StiffUpperLip ! I wonder if that crash pilot had talked with someone about #feelings = #GermanWings
I wonder if that crash pilot had talked with someone about #feelings
So many BHPs talk all sorts ..... ANYTHING BUT.....
Even with friends.
I know I keep going on about this stuff.
Emotional Literacy = able to be literate about our inner life............ EVEN WITH OUR CLOSEST FRIENDS
12 men in the UK will commit suicide today.
Most of them BHP's will be smily friendly chatty humans - no-one knowing that there is a dark cloud lodged in their soul.
#Mental Health - it's an illness but so SO tied up with SHAME = the stuff we cannot talk about.
and no-one ever challenges my statement here

I am reading a book about the teenage brain.
Latest chapter was about bumps to the head.
Blows to the head and what happens in the skull as the brain bounces around in the protective fluid.
How important it is to take any knock seriously especially for young people or children.
It's good how my sport, #RugbyLeague , and others are dealing with slightly concussed players quiet militarily.
Sometimes there is a delay of days/weeks - even longer before there are symptoms.
I have seriously tried to remember if I had a head blow in my childhood because my learning is slow - and still is.
I was nearly a teen before I could read!
Our Conniepops wrote down an order for an Indian takeaway for four adults just by listening to us word 'chicken tikka biriani' etc - and she is only just turned five years old.
I still can't spell (thank you for your consistent help Miss Spellchecker) !

is a strength not a weakness.
If we hide it
we are not being authentic.
We are offering only part of self
into a relationship
How you are feeling?
Are you able to get in touch with them?
If we put a word to a feeling weare managing them - not scared.
AVOID HAPPY & SAD - everything would come under one of those. Be more specific.
