How to have compassion towards the people who see the world very differently #prejudice

How to have compassion towards the people who see the world very differently #prejudice

What can I feel except compassion towards the people who say to me that it is not a good idea to go and live in Tunisia because it is a Muslim country. I have sadness about it, but I cannot change the glasses they are wearing. They are wearing some kind of glasses and I am wearing others. We live in a different world. It is my responsibility to have integrity and act according to my intuition.

You speak too much girl or #communication and expressing ourselves to the fullest

You speak too much girl or #communication and expressing ourselves to the fullest

When I was a child, my mother used to complain because I was “talking too much“. However, today when my son says to me: “I love talking!” I reply: “So do I, what a good match!“. I love talking so much. When I was in law school, I loved the exercises when we plead in front of a judge. Today I can express myself to the fullest thanks to youtube, knowing that whoever is happy to listen will do so.

I love Roberto Blake. I notably follow his advice of not looking at the subscribers number nor the likes on instagram. However, I refuse to compare myself to people doing a similar thing to me, even if it is to get better. My goal is to stay very true to me.

Marie Forleo did a very inspiring interview about the Blue Ocean strategy. I love creating and staying in my own lane, a new one. Competition is old school. We live in the era of collaboration. This is also what the interview with Chantal Revault d’Allonnes taught me.

Please visit Roberto Blake’s youtube channel and instagram @robertoblake for inspiration. Marie Forleo is also a fantastic source of great advice for women. This is her youtube channel and her instagram @marieforleo.

The first time I was truly able to relax or benefits of #yoga

The first time I was truly able to relax or benefits of #yoga

I was taking a yoga class for pregnant women. For the first time, I felt what it meant to be relaxed. I understood that so far, I had always lived in a constant state of fear. I was afraid of the sudden expectations and moodiness of my mother then my abusive boyfriends. Thanks to yoga, I took control back over my life. Today yoga is like a deep nourishment for my body and my soul. Yoga helped me to recover from abuse.

Do not give up your children to the manipulator #holdon sister

Do not give up your children to the manipulator #holdon sister

I was exhausted. I could not cope with the manipulator’s provocations. I felt tempted to let go of everything, including my children. I felt tempted to let them go to the perpetrator, despite the abuse. I have so much gratitude and appreciation towards Jean-Paul Mugnier, who advised me to stay on the right path. He was such a light into my life. He helped me to hold on. He helped me to protect my children.

If you read French, this is one of his many books:

Beauty can uplift us from the trauma experienced in the past. Beauty can help us to rebuild our life my friend my sister.

Taking photos of beauty is a way of capturing the essence of life for eternity. I discovered it by making the most of my Instagram @clairesamuelenglish.

 

The first step to escape abuse and manipulation #finances

The first step to escape abuse and manipulation #finances

Giving French lessons was the first step to escape from the toxic relationship I was trapped in. For the first time, I did not reveal everything to the perpetrator. It can also be doing grocery shopping for an elderly person. The point is that we can get some control back over our life by saving money only for ourselves and for our escape.
