Resilience. Admitting when it hurts

Resilience. Admitting when it hurts

Why can’t I say it hurts? I grew up in a "suck it up and wear a smile" culture, but that is not restricted to where I grew up.  It didn't help that dance performances reinforced that message in the physical as well, and that I have been dancing for most of my life.  I truly thought resilience meant being able to smile, breathe and function like a well-adjusted individual, regardless of what happens to you.  I've been through some brutal things and came out smiling because I thought that meant I was no one's victim.

Business & Lifestyle on Your Terms

"Welcome to your safe space." What does that mean? We all know what it means to be, live or work in an environment in an environment that we have to 'behave' in. I don't mean 'behave' in the healthier sense, like covering your mouth when you cough or maintaining some distance between you and the stranger on the packed train.
