November 21st, 2016 by Laura Longley

All my life I have been told that the way I communicate is too straight forward and blunt.

Accept Reality if You Want to Change

December 23rd, 2013 by Laura Longley

Lose the Drama and Respond Rather Than React!

December 16th, 2013 by Laura Longley

There are three main ways we respond to difficult situations – react (unconscious, automatic programming), manipulate (overanalyze, how will the other person react), and authentic (from the heart, what is true for me in the moment, with compassion and non-judgement).
