    Just wondering if any of you lovely ladies have any inspiring/ eye opening quotes. I’ve found a few that have hit me the last few days: I was your cure and you were my disease. I was saving you but you were killing me….When a toxic person can no longer control you they will try to control how others see you. The misfortune will seem unfair but stay above it trusting that other people will see the truth just as you did… She had not known the weight until she felt the freedom.

    Grief is a matter of the heart and soul. Grieve your loss, allow it in, and spend time with it. Suffering is the optional part.

    You must find the courage to leave the table if respect is no longer being served.

    Sometimes, when one door closes, you just need to nail a board over it. True. 😂

    Sometimes you have to burn bridges to prevent you going back over them 👍

    These are all lovely. I came on the positive board to pick myself up.

    What keeps me strong and motivated, all the women on here. My favourite story is an excerpt from The women who run with wolves, there was a young woman trying to see what was going on at a gathering of the clans, she noticed an older woman and offered her her shoulders to stand on and the old woman replied, no you stand on my shoulders as I stand on the shoulders of the women who came before me. As the young woman looked more closely she saw that the old woman was indeed standing on the shoulders of even older woman than she, stretching back to the first woman of time. The moral of this story being that we learn from those who went before us, that is the circle of life.

    I love that book “Women who run with the wolves “ by Clarissa Estes Pinkola. My favourite story is “Bluebeard” where she ends up with an abuser and how she gets awareness (opens the room he forbids her to open and it’s full of dead bones). She survives and gets free using help from others.

    Let go of what is killing you, even though it is killing you to let go
