To keep your cool does take practice but it’s not as difficult as we want to believe. It just takes a bit of personal effort, so please don’t dismiss it as ‘too hard’ or ‘but you don’t understand’. We’ve ALL had ‘stuff’ happen in our lives, no-one is exempt from pain or anguish in the Iron Age. The key is focus on how we respond, not wait till we react!

That’s not to say that we can’t accept support, of course we can. The important thing to remember is to check our direction.
