It's okay to feel your feelings and still be a good friend. Anybody constantly overriding your feelings with a reminder of how bad things are for them - with a monopoly on sad has work to do in being a good friend. Pain is pain - everyone has it and there's no monopoly on who can feel it. In fact, the more we allow those feelings to be felt and moved through the more empathic and compassionate we will be. FEEL THOSE FEELINGS! Love, Angie #mantrasfortherestofus #lovingkindness
There is nothing wrong with being proud of yourself! Absolutely nothing wrong! Say it again and again until you can stand up in your PRIDE! Did you get up this morning? Be proud! Were you kind to yourself? Be proud! Make a doctors appointment? Be proud! Set a boundary Take a nap Say no Say yes.... Be proud!

I know it is not easy- believe me I know! But loving ourselves is the key to real love. I’m working on this by doing loving-kindness meditations daily, bringing awareness to my feelings throughout the day, and just trying to practice presence.
I want to be a conduit of love and love has trouble flowing out of someone who doesn’t love themselves.
I do love myself but like I said in my most recent podcast https://anchor.fm/angie-fadel/episodes/Bringing-The-Parts-Together-eadd
I know it’s complicated but in a silo of the same ideas, from the same people, in the same place, produces the same thing. We need all of our differences And those differences given space to be expressed, heard and acted on Angie Fadel #mantrasfortherestofus #lovingkindness #soulcare #spiritualdirectionandsoulcare #soulcoach #pdxspiritualdirection #pdxspiritualdirectionandsoulcare #mycreativebiz #allvoices #bekind #loving #selfcare #montramondays
Like I said before Loneliness Is Corrosive. When we hold the truth inside of us that we are not alone, that we are part of everything and everything is part of us- we can’t distance ourselves from our world and the suffering of others or our own suffering. We are interconnected in everything. angie #mantrasfortherestofus #lovingkindness #soulcare #spiritualdirectionandsoulcare #soulcoach #pdxspiritualdirection #loneliness #pdxspiritualdirectionandsoulcare #mycreativebiz #inne
These images edited so I don’t get removed from anything if you want the real deal hit me up and I’ll send it to you. F*ck shame and the horse it rode in on! Shame is a complicated and complex thing inside most of us. It often leads us to do, say, and embody what isn’t really true about us. And most of the time we aren’t even aware that shame is leading us. It has over the years become a corrosive belief we hold about ourselves- I am worthless, I am not lovable, Nobody could
It's that time of year again- time to not get swept up in MAGICAL THINKING or CYNICISM. How do I avoid that, you might ask? Well, take stock, evaluate, and make a plan. Listen to Holidays Survival Tips & Tricks part 1 And remember you are not alone in the struggle to be safe, find joy and peace, and not get manipulated this season. I also have posts from last year that may come in handy. Take care of yourself! #soulcarewithangiefadelpodcast #soulcarewithangiefadelpodcast #hol
We are complex, multifaceted, and able to hold many feelings and ways of being all at the same time. It can be a painful realization when we aren’t one or the other - We are spectrum people trying to live fully who we are.

Why is it so hard to love the child inside us?
It seems far easier to be our own bullies. The twist in that is it doesn’t make us more loving, kind, or open to ourselves or others. On the contrary it keeps us locked up, hiding, lonely and not living fully into who we really are. So maybe it is serving someone or something because we are not living as are fullest selves. This mantra is from my most recent podcast conversation with Father James Joiner Church Drag Love, Angie #
What does that even mean? Failing at being an adult! Not measuring up Not meeting social requirements Not breathing No white picket fence Who's requirements are we not meeting? And do those requirements really matter? I spend a lot of time thinking and talking about this as a mother of two teenagers, one who has been on his own for the last year and one who is going into her last year of high school- it is an often discussed topic. I should have done that I should have known
Sometimes we need more than emotional strength to remind us we aren’t Weak Vulnerable Powerless A victim Worthless Etc. We need big and little tools that help get us connected to our physical strength Running Walking Weight lifting Etc. Just to center us back into who we really are not who we’ve been convinced we are. Strength - inside and out Love, Angie #mantrasfortherestofus #mantraMondays #strength #selfcare #selflove #selfawareness #littletools
I normally have a lot to say about Mother’s Day and I still do, but after years of speaking about it I took a bit of a break yesterday on the actual day to be in myself and celebrate my own personal motherhood and not spend time thinking about my own abusive mother. I will be writing more about it this week. So keep an eye out for more. #Mothersday #selfcare #abuse #selfworth
Well, I’m back! I’ve been gone from social media for a short bit. I had intended to communicate that I was taking a bit of a break but once that thought entered my mind I guess my subconscious took over and I couldn’t bring myself to post anything but the bare minimum.
What I began to realise was I was getting vulnerability fatigued from posting. In this new era we live in of cyber connectedness but not ever seeing each other face to face can feel very lonely. We start or r
What helps you feel centered? What comforts the loneliness or ache in your heart?
You know better what you need than anyone else.
If you’re not sure what is comforting to you, that’s not unusual and you can do some exploring and find things that help you feel loved and connected and throw out the ones that don’t. You hold all the cards and you are worth connecting too.

Why do we hold onto what doesn't serve us anymore? From clothes that are worn out, don't fit, or we just don't like anymore; to the clutter of - trinkets, tchotchkes, old cards, books (such a hard one for me), broken items we think we will get fixed someday; and the self-protection patterns, safeties, people, coping mechanisms that stopped working or loving us years ago. I'm a firm believer of not changing the things that are working - why buy trouble, right? And I'm not talk
