Others—the state of being connected

We are a culture of people  —Brene Brown

I care about people, and I care about how people feel.  That doesn’t mean that I am responsible for making them feel ANYthing.  


We are surrounded by people everyday in all aspects of our lives.  Our family, friends and neighbors, coworkers and acquaintances, even the people at the grocery store or in traffic.  


How we show up and interact with people is up to us and in our control.


Often in our relationships we feel like they “just are” or that they are happening to us.  

“Dixie is understanding, supportive, a good listener, and holds you accountable
for your feelings and thoughts.  I didn’t realize
how much I allowed, even chose to be a victim. It is liberating to let go of.” —Diane


We regularly attach feeling and emotion to our relationships with descriptions like, good or bad, healthy or toxic, strong or stressed.  


All of those descriptions are not facts, they are just thoughts about the relationship, or the thoughts about the connection you have with the person.


The good news is that means you can choose what your relationships are like, the connections you have, and how you feel about the people in your life.  

It is possible to have healthy, happy, strong relationships with all the people in
your life. 

My clients learn to hold onto their power and create relationships they feel good about. They give people space to be themselves and are not threatened when people think or feel differently than they do.  


“Dixie taught me that I am not responsible for making others happy!” —Jenny
