Global News called me recently in relation to a story they were doing. I was asked to comment about the phenonemon of “oversharing” via social media.
The gist of what I said is that while posting something on line may make you feel better in the short term, be careful that you don’t trade a short sense of release for a longer term of pain. Just like it’s better not to drunk dial the phone, don’t post things to Facebook or Twitter than may come back to haunt you.
Facebook can be a great way to find old friends and keep in touch with people who live far away. But use it with caution. Once something is up on the web, it takes on a life of its own. Years from now, people may still find those nasty words you said to a now long-ago ex boyfriend. Consider whether you would want a future employer, a client or your grandmother to read what you just said.
It's okay to be single. YOU are enough

Valentine's Day can be a hard day to be single. It’s also a hard day to be in a relationship that no longer feels loving. For all my clients and friends, this is a lovely message:
As the video says, it's a myth you need a partner to complete you. You are complete just as you are! For most people, there will be times when we are part of a team, and other times when we are single... and we are equally precious and worthy human beings either way. Believe it or not, there are advantages to being single. There is no need to be depressed, and depression and anxiety counselling may help.
So if you are single, let me help you learn to love yourself more and fill your life with lovely things. Whether or not that helps you form a relationship, you are worth it! If you want to get more out of single life, there is a good chance I can help you learn to be happier with going solo, as I have helped others.
And if you are in a partnership that is not all you would like it to be, please call me. If you and your partner both want it, you can have a more loving and nurturing marriage or relationship. Even if only one of you is working on the relationship, there is the possibility of change. When one side shifts, the other side starts to shift too. If you want to improve your situation, I’d like to help.
I hope this Valentine's Day is a new beginning for getting more love in YOUR life.
