"I realized when doing the balance with you that when things in life crop up, they put me right back in the 'hurt child stage'. I can't believe how much freer I feel! Now, when someone says something negative to me, I think 'they must be having a bad day' and it's not my fault. Before, I used to get all upset and anxious and wonder what I had done wrong to upset them. This is wonderful!" Rose Smith, Kelowna
