Life is easier when we can start to see where we are shutting down. We then have the opportunity to change it.

If you like this podcast, we would love you to give a review. Here is how you do it.

  • I was so enjoying “Where Are You Holding Back”. It came just when I was struggling with a difficult person… my heart opened. And I wanted to hear the remainder of the motorcycle gang story but for some reason it didn’t play through.

  • Thank you Monique. That is a great story about the story with the bikes. You brought out their kindness in return for that particular occasion. I would find it very difficult with my sister who is prone to nastiness. She is undeserving of my kindness and I would open a can of worms to show to try to understand her reasons for her behaviour. Therefore I would let things be. She lives a long way from me.

    • And it’s interesting that your thought is that your sister is underserving of your kindnesss. I will make a podcast in the coming days to make some clarification with this for you. đź’•

      • Thank you Monique. After 3 years of not seeing my sister we met with my 102 year old mother in Auckland. My sister controlled the whole few days. I was not important to her. An episode caused her to verbally abuse me. She apologised but now I feel I dont trust her. I have pondered over this for 6 months now.

  • This is not exactly the same type scenario but still, reminded me of an incident that I feel I didn’t handle correctly and would love some input. A couple came up to me as I was putting gas in my car and ask for money to buy gas. Their story was a relative was sick and they were going to visit but had run out of money before they arrived. I worked close by and had heard from people I worked with that this couple had been hitting people up for several weeks at different stations around the past month. So I knew they were scamming and told them I had no money. But, even though I knew this it felt wrong. Should I have offered to use my credit card and bought gas anyway? And if so, should I have mentioned I knew this was not true or not mentioned and let them think they scammed me? Not sure how I need to think about this incident.
