What do you think about when you have toothache?


I am challenged by humans who won't let me close.
I understand that and support their rights.

But I want to get close so I can offer support and anything they want.
The problem is toothache.

What do you think about when you have toothache?

So .....
they don't want me close because life is absorbed by toothache.
I understand. - That one thing which dominates all other decisions - step - moving ahead ........
So ........ it is slow.

Part of the solution to toothache is allowing others to get close.
Isolation and toothache don't get on.
In time and with opportunity - they will accept me.
Then I will build a relationship - 

a climate of trust - 

consistent - 


Then the toothache - sometimes called;
fear of failure
emotional deprivation
broken spirit
insecurity mental health anxiety ...... 

andmoreandmoreandmore .....

I am not the answer to all/any of these ...... 
..... the issues of life, it seems to me, 

need to be addressed as part of a community ...... it takes a village to bring up a child - "BECOME your own village"

learning from each other.
me too
me learning too
me giving too
I feel my role is facilitating these things to happen.
Structured experiences - because they just don't happen on their own so easily.

Do you get what I am on about ......... working with those with the greatest needs, takes some considerable time and emotional resources ....

"Community is a safe place precisely because no one is attempting to heal or convert you, 
to fix you, to change you. 
Instead, the members accept you as you are. 
You are free to be you. 
And being so free, you are free to discard defenses, masks, disguises: free to seek your own psychological and spiritual health." 
M. Scott Peck 

hope you get part of it ...... I only get a part of it.
