Resilience 101: How to Be a More Resilient Person

We believe resiliency requires us to see that every hurdle has a teachable moment.

Resiliency doesn’t mean you need to create only a positive environment. It means the ability and willing to overcome even when the adversity may be unbearable.

We are sharing a great and realistic article on resiliency and the psychological impact it can have on us.

We continue to provide resiliency coaching and, to know more , contact us at [email protected].

Today is, International Day for People Impacted by Su***de Loss.

It’s a day like any other, as su***de loss survivors reflect, grieve and try to heal through it.

We are sharing a very insightful digital pamphlet from #MentalHealthCommissionOfCanada in detailing how a su***de loss survivor is impacted and how to reach out for help.

64 Signs of Mental and Emotional Abuse: How to Identify It, What to Do

We are sharing our CEO, Parul Shah ‘s insight on bullying and that bullying is also beyond physical.

#GetLouderOnMentalHealth
#antibullyingweek2021

It isn’t always easy to recognize the signs of mental and emotional abuse. Psychological abuse involves attempts to frighten, control, or isolate you. It can happen anywhere: in a romantic relationship, among family members, or even on the job. Here’s how to recognize it and what to do next.

It’s Bullying Awareness & Prevention Week !

When you are told you are different, you act “not normal” ; you walk funny; why you speak silly - and the question is constant and the laughter “at you” is everyday ; the pushing to a corner is everyday ; the name calling is everyday; the belittling is everyday ; the “do what your are told or else” is everyday - IT HAS AN IMPACT ON THE PSYCHE. Period.

Self-doubt grows like a massive w**d that is instilled On our lawns. The more you let it go the more it will grow- Because bullying is that way.

Walking away only teaches the bully that “you are not listening” and gets them angry . They will start to manipulate you, threatened you in little ways that a naked eye can’t pick it up or see, and yes they can threatened in harming your family, if you tell someone.

The end of a bullying era comes from understanding the psyche of a bully( their past) to where they are now; to end the bullying era is to change school policies - zero tolerance only removes the physical bully but places them into a new environment without resolution and then the bully cycle continues.

The aftermath of bullying has some really sad statistics and they are increasing - but to the ones who endured the pain and are still here on this earth today - You Are Brave and I’m Glad You Are Still Here!
When your kid dreams to be “normal” so that they are no longer to be picked on - tears up the heart of any soul.

Let’s share our uniqueness and our weirdness everyday by choosing to be kind; choosing to take the time to listen and choosing to to say to yourself everyday “ I AM WORTHY OF THE SAME SPACE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE”

If all you can do today on #WorldKindnessDay , is to acknowledge the pain you carry. Please do so. Lightening our heart and mind can also be a form of kindness.

Talk to someone. Write your feelings down. Draw your emotions.

Kindness requires you to see that gentleness is always needed .

Yes, you deserve this kind of kindness as well.

Remember that our emotions carry a story. A story that sometimes hurts us, pains us, worries us, angers us.
Yet, when we ignore the story behind it, we neglect ourselves the path to healing even when the story is so challenging to explain.

We are remembering our Soldiers and Veterans for protecting and serving our Country, yet we must also understand that empathy and compassion goes beyond November 11th.

Soldiers and Veterans don't just have one day to deal with remembering, they live with it everyday. The triggers, the night terrors, the no emotional affect, the anger, the sadness, the isolation, the disassociation, the trauma is instilled within them and their families every single day.

Embracing Empowerment Counselling Services is unique, as we understand the evolution of missions, training, the mindset, the goodbyes, the farewells and the least thing a Military personnel wants to hear from others upon arriving home safely from a tour " Thank you for your service"

We get it and We Are Here To Help!

A kind reminder that the things we often don’t speak about can turn up somewhere else.

Be kind to yourself.

Allow yourself the space to heal.

When you’re tired, rest.

Listen to the cues that your body is giving you.

Our body often keeps scores, if we don’t give ourselves that time to breathe.

As we enter into a new week, we must allow ourselves the permission to feel without needing to change for others. Healing isn’t linear.

There will be good days, bad days and downright ugly days.

As long as we can permit ourselves to feel with an intent to heal from the pain, we in turn just allowed that space to feel safe.

“If I fail, I’m nothing”
“If I don’t win, I’m a failure”
“If I don’t get hired, I’m worthless”
“If I don’t perform my best, everyone will look at me different”

So many phrases like the above we’ve heard time and time again.

No matter the genre you’re in, the idea perfectionism is real and yet it is purely unrealistic as a goal.

Know, imperfection is what we would rather see than tearing yourself apart just to be perfect for your world.

It’s okay to not be okay right now.
