I was reading about Oprah retiring from public life and all the lessons she has learnt from interviewing people. According to her what we all want is to be acknowledged and be heard, we all need to know that what we say, what we feel means something to someone else. Oprah also says that the common thread that runs through of all our pain is issues of worthiness, often we do not feel worthy enough and we do not feel that we deserve the things that we get. Her final message is that noboy is responsible for our lives but ourselves and that we are responsible for the energy that we bring to ourselves and others. Although I agree with her, I also acknowledge that sometimes we are not happy with ourselves, our circumstances are challenging and we do not feel in control of them. Turning this reality around can be difficult and time consuming but healing may assist in making this process easier and faster.
