Stop Being Needy

Stop Being Needy

Being aware of what you need is not the same as being needy. You may need rest, energy, validation, emotional regulation, spirituality, learning, time alone, time with others. It’s not wrong to want these things but the distinction lies in where you expect those needs...

Handing people back their emotions

Handing people back their emotions

We talk about handling our own emotions. What about other peoples’ emotions? Part of being an empath (or just a human) is that you can’t help being aware of what other people are feeling. It’s probably part of what makes you a great therapist. But sometimes,...

End of Year, Christmas Mehab Message

End of Year, Christmas Mehab Message

This morning, I swam in 6-degree waters, no wetsuit and beamed with joy as I shared a hot tea afterwards with my mate Rach. And I hate the cold! A few months ago, I couldn't drive more than a few miles without leg pain and cramping. And I couldn't fix it.  ...

I know, but I can’t ask

I know, but I can’t ask

It’s hard to ask for what I need Of course! It’s stomach churning hard. It goes against every line of coding in your programming. Helper, rescuer, person who has it all up together and who’s purpose is to be there for others. How can I let people see that I really...

Needs, the building blocks for bigger things

Needs, the building blocks for bigger things

What is your purpose? I find this question frustrating as it suggests that some beautifully formed statement has been lounging in the recesses of my mind, just waiting for someone to call it forth. And that if I really thought hard enough, I’d be able to squeeze it...
