  • When we project our fears or put fairytale expectations on anyone, it’s just as unfair to us as it is to them. The mindset we all have to have and truly believe in is this “I cannot rely on anyone to fill my sense of self-worth or to complete me”. We have to truly feel whole on our own before creating the healthy relationships we want. A potential partner who is quality and grounded will sense this and attract to you. This is not something that can be faked.
————————————
Doing personal development work will really help you feel and understand that you do not need anyone in your life to make you happy or fulfilled despite what it may seem like now. The goal is to get to a mentally strong place where you don’t have to rely on others too much, psychologically. ———————————————
Self-limiting beliefs(such as “there are no good men/women”) or any kind of serious psychological hang-ups that you have, tend to get amplified tenfold. Especially when dating bc they’re going to inevitably blow up the relationship. ————————————————
Anxiety, anger problems, unprocessed childhood trauma, paranoia/trust issues, jealously, obsessive-compulsivity, addictions, attachments or any other neurotic behaviors or fears are all a recipe for a toxic relationship. The more we ignore, the worse they get. As we all know this behavior pushes good people out and broken people in. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. ———————————————————
When you’re vetting somebody, or if you’re with them long term the toxic behavior manifests itself in so many nasty ways that it toxifies that relationship and makes it impossible to have one with anyone. —————————————
Working through hang ups will get you to where you want to be. When we are truly confident, happy and fulfilled by ourselves, this makes our partner feel at ease with us. ———————————————————
You will embrace them with your true natural warmth, femininity humility and love. You will create something special and without hidden agendas of needing fulfillment or latching on due to fear of abandonment (which a quality man/woman can sense). If you are already happy, a good man/woman will want to be a part of that and add to it.

  • Ever since beginning my plant medicine journey, I’ve noticed myself sitting on the ground more. .

My belief is that when we develop a deeper relationship with the earth, we begin to find refuge there. Grounded. Rooted. It’s human to gravitate towards safe places. .

What a rad observation ..... I must say. 🤓🌏

  • The 5k is back In full swing tomorrow at 5:30 pm. Open to both men and woman. The route is as follows. A straight there and back again from the meeting point at the top of King Eddie's Bay heading towards Browns Bay and back. Slightly over 3 mile by point 2 of a mile but who bloody cares. Its all about the company and the views. You can run past pubs and end up feeling like the last photo. So what's not to love. Also a swift pint/coffee and a lovely chat after the run isnt compulsory but it is possibly, maybe frowned upon if you don't. And let's not forget its all about combating and opening up about our own mental health and mental health as a society. x

  • Reposting @tony_the_scribe’s quote from our previous episode, which definitely relates to the new one too (on “how do we build a culture of consent?”). Unlearning is often as important as learning. ⁣

  • Can I get an Amen?!
.
Whether it's about trying to be present in a conversation, stressing about work, planning logistics, or during SEX—I think we can all relate in some way or another.
.
Our own mind can at times be our most powerful weapon—yet sometimes our most difficult obstacle to overcome.
.
When do you struggle most with being in your head?
What have you found helps most?? Let us know! 👇

  • During the Christmas period the words “Be a man!” was said to my 20 month old son as one of his friends took a toy away from him.  Usually this wouldn’t bother me but “What does that even mean?!” .

It worries me that we tell our boys to be men when they are not, they are babies, children. How can they be men when they are not? We teach our girls that’s it’s okay to cry but we teach our boys to be tough at all cost. Then women face a crisis when their significant other or father doesn’t know how to show any emotion and is tough at all cost like they were taught.

Rather than telling our boys to be men, how about we consider teaching them responsibility, how to cook, clean, express their emotion, how to look after themselves and to be equally as competent as our girls in all areas. Gender roles are real for our girl and women but it’s also real for our boys.

  • Seek and see truth, even if it may not be what we want it to be. When we seek truth it allows us to be objective, grow, see the bigger picture and always make the right decision. “Be impeccable with your word.” Four Agreements

Sometimes we want to justify or make excuses to make ourselves or others feel comfortable, but all we are doing is lying, and delaying the inevitable.

Living truthfully sets us free.

  • A man in isolation is set up for disaster.  Life was never intended to be lived alone.  We need friends.  We need that “band of brothers” to link arms with us in this adventure known as life.  It is in these deep relationships that we gain a deeper understanding of who we are.  We have other men who can sharpen us, teach us, call us out, and lead us toward becoming our very best as a man.
.
You probably have a lot of people you call friend, but real friends stick with you.  They are brothers.  Who are these men in your life?  If you look around and realize you have none, make it a priority to connect.  You’ll be a better man for it.

  • 🛑READ CAREFULLY PLEASE🛑 We repeat the patterns that are familiar to us. If we grew up with low self worth, not paid attention to or even neglected we can often give too much in our adult relationships.

In my own relationships sometimes I catch myself trying too hard to people please, not let people down and sacrifice my own needs. I grew up in volatility so this aspect of my patterning came more from 7/8 years of age and below.

From 8-13 I changed. I became hyper selfish and lashed out. It is helpful to understand that major developmental periods of our growth are between 0-7 and 8-13. I considered others less and became stuck between these two extremes. As an adult it made being in relationship confusing for me and my partners.

Finding the middle way can take effort but I assure you it’s worth it. It’s worth it because we feel free and not burdened by unconscious forces and we get to be us in relationship with greater levels of self care and self worth. In my relationship now, I at times struggle with these extreme and it shows up as immense frustration but I’m able to quickly be with it, feel it, move it and then free it... For the masculine aspect of this healthy middle way within self this looks like confidence, autonomy, certainty and discernment. For the feminine it looks like healthy boundaries, emotional awareness and compassion/healthy sensitivity.

What has been your greatest lessons in relationship? Share below👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽And TAG 2 people that you care about.

And if you’re interested in deep diving in to all of that which you are and create the most healthiest life then DM me for private coaching. The container is tight. It’s not for everyone but it could be for you.

One is glad to be of service.

  • I don’t have much to say about this apart from this is genuinely what I hope for all men. We deserve way better than what toxic masculinity leads us to believe. 🤴🤴🤴❤️❤️❤️

  • One thing I realized not too long ago, is the fact that I hardly ever hear men complimenting each other. I don’t mean compliments about our bodies or career. I mean genuine compliments like “I think you’re smart”, “I’m proud of you”, “I value having you in my life”.
.
.
.
Toxic masculinity often makes us feel so uncomfortable being intimate with our male friends this way. It tells us that intimacy is only reserved for romantic relationships. And that we as men should always compete with each other.
.
.
.
None of this is true. Men, we should normalize complements and non-competition between us. Maybe today, genuinely compliment one if your male friends 🤴🤴

  • My first attempt at a meme 😂! But in all seriousness: men, let yourself cry. It’s healthy. It regulates your emotions. There is nothing wrong with wanting to cry. It’s not a weakness. It’s not a trait reserved only for females. I cry whenever I feel the need to and it feels incredible!! It’s made me so much happier!

  • KICKING & SCREAMING⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That's what my internal climate has been the past 48 hours.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Normal waves of marriage, fatherhood, entrepreneurship, and being a HUMAN that overloaded my adult capacities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That inner-boy has been throwing a TANTRUM this week. Looking for anyone or anything to blame other than myself. Avoiding responsibility and looking to be saved.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The funny part is I had the awareness that this was all happening. I could even speak about it while I was in it...but it didn't matter. My ego said, "F*CK YOU!", I'm driving. For the better part of 2 days, the "Father" in me could only watch as my boy melted down.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, just as I father my son when he melts down, I sat on the side. Never abandoning my inner boy or "giving up" on him. Waiting. Watching. Observing the blubbering mess of a shit-show that was happening inside.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As the hours passed and I had a few conversations with people I trust - confidantes who know the ADULT in me AND can respect the occasional spin-out of my little boy - I found myself. Regained my balance and could honor the boy in me who just felt unsafe, insecure, and unsure of what to do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then, I brought my healing process to sweat lodge. Our monthly ritual of cleansing, healing, and rebirth. Prayed for myself (which I have had a hard time doing my whole life), and emerged with renewed purpose, clarity, and direction.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Needless to say, the boy in me slept well that night. He woke up feeling safe. Ready to relinquish the steering wheel and let "Daddy" drive again.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We all have these moments. They're often censored and lost in the shuffle of Social Media Perfectionism. You're not alone. You're not unique. And you are NO LESS than anyone else.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You gotta believe it though. Gotta learn how to father/mother the inner child. It's what prepares us for raising the children that don't live within us. Sons, daughters, nieces, nephews. They're counting on us to be there for them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
