I remember
The first time
A friend said to me that sounds like gaslighting

And I looked it up

It refers to a movie where a husband dims the lights, removes pictures and when she questions him, is made to feel like she is going insane.
Incrementally over time

Wikipedia: 'Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, hoping to make them question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying,
it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target's belief.

Instances may range from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.' ~
When you question someone and the reaction is defensive. Its a red flag, or if they project, or if something you did was brought up to distract, or they 'don't remember' again. If your drowning in the emotional river, they've both created and pushed you in, and they are not helping you out.
Its a red flag, if you don't feel supported. And if they are on the edge laughing, dancing telling you it can't be true because of 'fill in the blank with a story about their greatness' completely unrelated to helping you. Its gaslighting.

When they deny a direct quote.
When they 'misinterpret' your actions and react by withholding, or ignoring you or being mean.

If someone says you are complicated. Or are making things complicated when you are asking questions and trying to understand a situation.
Its a tactic .
To hurt you , or to push you away and to not take responsibility.

Its you, not me

And if you are over responsible you'll take this to heart
If your a victim you may beleive this is your fault
If you are spiritually inclined you may question how your contributing

Is it a projection?
That they cannot own? or choose not to
Either way
Its a red flag
Its a manipulation

Be wary of their intention
Be concerned with their response
And listen to your spidey sences
Not words or stories

I just spent the weekend by the waves of the ocean, taking in the Beauty of whales splashing and really got the chance to relax! I had a chance to do a few pst life readings on myself and a lot has come to me... it has really interested me and made me think of so much. It is amazing how past lives affect our current life and can affect the relationships around us, it’s also amazing how those in your life now have likely been with you before. My little family are with me again and that’s comforting to discover 💕 I also took comfort in the confirmation that I have been predominantly male in past lives, it is something I have always felt and known but the confirmation puts sense to that for me 💕

Yet another chapter in the eternal struggle between mushrooms and tarmac.

VICTORIES ARE NOT ABOUT THE SCALE!
I’d like to just throw mine away 🗑
I wanted to share this today to show
non-scale victories matter.
how you feel about yourself- matters.
not being able to fit in that pair of
shorts from last year- IS OKAY.
I struggled with my weight for FOREVER.
my confidence.
my personal value and worth.
that I don’t look like a model.
my stomach is “too big”
my arms are flabby.
I never seem to fully “love” where I am in my journey....
HOWEVER
gaining more and more self-love is my own
personal goal for this year.
.
.
.
today I just decided randomly to take a picture.
not to compare myself really,
just to take one.
I was surprised to find that I HAVE PROGRESSED.
all that self-hate I put on myself has been
conquered by some results I didn’t even
realize occurred. .
.
.
My point?
Don’t be so hard on yourself.
If you had a weekend out with your friends
... then that’s great!
you enjoyed yourself.
you drank.
you ate too much.
YOU ARE HUMAN AND YOU DESERVE TO LIVE.
do what you love.
I just so happen to love working out.
I love walking.
Being outside.
I didn’t even realize my body was changing.
It really feels amazing to see that
treating my body right really paid off.
I am living and I am thriving.
promise me, you’ll work to love yourself more. 💓

Weighing the Kangaroo Island roo joeys, and scale training at the same time. No catching necessary - regular health checks are easy when it’s a game with treats involved. Even the crested pigeon wants to play!

A letter to Jose Moya:
Happy Father’s Day dad.
I do not know who you are, but I do want you to know that I love you. When my mom told you she was pregnant with me, you left her, she was only 24. She became the father you never were, you did not deserve such a beautiful woman in your life. I want to let you know that I do not hate you any longer. I am learning to let go of hate that makes me blue, after all, you are human and are imperfect just like me, and the rest of the world. Part of me wishes you were there for the hard times in life, but God has blessed me with such beautiful souls I call family and friends. I know you are alive, and I know you are out there somewhere, and it would be nice to meet you. I think I am a nice guy, sensitive and emotional at times, but I also think I can be a great son. We will see what the future holds for us, but if we never do meet, you still have a special place in my heart. After all, 50% of my DNA comes from you. Love you dad, Happy Father’s Day.

Sorry everyone, it’s one of those days, all your beautiful post about Father’s Day made me realize that I can not hold hate towards a man I never met, but hope to meet. Thank you everyone, you are all very lucky.
