In all the turmoil though, it is so important to have time out. As a person, it is your basic right to have a bit of time to yourself. Self-importance and well-being are vital in being a good parent.

Men, in general, just don't seem to be able to handle emotional crises. There's a reason we have the phrase Agony Aunt - the wonderful Graham Norton being the notable exception.

I love meditating because it acts as an anchor, gives me a foundation and keeps me calm. However, it's the retreats that do me in. Spending a week disconnected from normal life and daily distractions is a recipe for disaster.

In a time when so much is expected of us to fit into and to be accepted into a society we are willingly or unwillingly are a part of, many of us forget that it's not always about others. We forget there is our own inner identity we want to protect and evolve.

Do you take notice of how you talk to yourself or your thought patterns around what you are doing? This is an area that I am really working on in my own life. We are our own worst critics before our external critics weigh in with their opinions.
