“The meditation, reflection of asking myself how I feel has helped me to control my anger and to think before I react to a stressor."

“Mindfulness - personal choice - acceptance - feel happier. Still niggling doubts but not so powerful.”

“Grounding techniques, analysing feelings about things more, taking step back from reactions."

“The big skill is that I have learned I don’t have to carry my abuse with me 24/7. I don’t negate it but it’s also not the overarching issue. I’ve learned I am teachable.”

“Coming back to the centre/grounding/senses. Sight, sound, sense, taste, breath. Standing back, learning stuff at Mankind.”
