Self description

Female , 64

I was brought up in disfunctional family
Professional, working with people, proud and loving what I do for living.
Highly adaptable , often pleasing , but unable to find happiness and in general very lonely most of the time.
My quest for finding my own spot of sunshine never ending, brought me to the full understanding of most of my mistakes.
I reached the peace of acceptance; I know that my past makes it difficult., but I also know that the answer to my future depends only on me.

my memories of emotional and verbal abuse, my loneliness in the disfunctional family, the effects of above, the consequences, the relief, and the strength I have gathered by acceptance
and understanding of the impact of my past on my life and relationships with other people .

surviving addictive nature

early obsessive disorders,
fighting disfunctional and destructive thinking
effort to make life clean and bearable, if not happy

my family and myself

my carrier and my family

my successes and failures in bringing up my children
my drive to make a difference in life
and my survival in my own family

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
