May this video clip below be a catalyst to let the healing begin. Whether you are a man reading and watching this or a woman, we all have fallen short of our highest potential. We all have at one time or another hurt each other, knowingly or unknowingly. Many times we acted out of our own pain. It is time to forgive. Forgiving does NOT mean that we condone the acts, behaviours and words of the transgressor. It means to let go so that we can be healed.
The video below is very powerful. As a woman, I have to admit that I was choking up and tears coming to my eyes. I was deeply touched and feel very honoured! All I can say is a very heartfelt “Thank You!”
“We need 4 hugs a day for survival.
We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance.
We need 12 hugs a day for growth”
—Virginia Satir, family therapist
“It’s the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We’re always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something ..”
– from the movie “Crash”
Recent studies show that there is a link between positive emotions and hugging. Well, that’s mildly said; actually
Hugging is the best antidepressant … it’s healing comforting and nourishing
Please allow me to honour and thank all the men that have such a profound impact of love in my life, from my own father to my own son, and to all those wonderful men who I had and will have the privilege to experience their wisdom, deep masculinity and sincere love. Some men do not know how to express that deep unwavering love and devotion, but it is still there, unquestionably so!
