(How to make it very HARD to feel the negative emotion)

The only time I will allow myself to feel………..Agitated, is when I don’t accept the process of change with calmness.

Example Challenges

I had an interview last week and I can’t settle because I’m waiting to hear.   (DC023)

DC072 My 93 year old nan, who has come out of hospital and gone back home on her own, who doesn’t really have many friends or family left, leaves the door unlocked and won’t wear a hearing aid!

DC074 Dad going off on his own in his motorhome on a 4 hour journey. Then he goes walking up mountains that he used to run up when he was 30, but now he’s 72 and not quite so stable. He turns his mobile on when he needs it (which is never), so he’s out of contact!

DC075 My 72 year mother visits my Nan on the train which takes about 2 hours each way, and she usually has to wait on her own at the station.

DC079 My neighbours granddaughter deliberately parks her car so its hard to get out of the drive!!! She knows it upsets me and I’m so wind up I could cry!

DC144 My daughter has ‘Power of Attorney’ with my money and I feel like I’ve lost control!
