Self Care

We have to remember that some people are users. The only person we can fully trust is ourselves. People make promises that they can’t deliver on. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022


Life is like living in the forest where you have to be aware of your surroundings. The way disingenuous people present themselves to us is like a window dressing, what we see isn’t always what is. We have to follow our instincts at all times, © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022


Be wary, there is always an agenda. We cannot allow other people whether they are related to us or not to bully us into believing that their truth is what we should adhere to although we know what the real truth is. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022


Some of us have collections of the things we love and want to admire in our homes, whether it be stones, ornaments, or dolls, etc. We have to be weary about collecting confidants and friends because relationships are not about quantity, it is about quality.

Breaking Free

We can’t change people, we can only change ourselves. If we find ourselves in hostile situations it is fallacious to rely on the honour of others, our best option is to break free. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021


People are not beholden to us, their business is theirs to keep. Sleuthing like a private detective into another’s life is unethical. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021
