Feedback Response & BIG Thank you!

I like to respond to all my feedback and I truly do appreciate ALL feedback, because I recognize and accept that I can always benefit from another view. 

Everything about me and Pain Sufferers Speak is NEVER about pity--what a waste that would be! 

My main goal is to be sure no one ever has to be alone in their pain. 

I practice unconditional love and acceptance for everyone in my daily life and this includes respect for all religions and faiths. Everyone/All means no one and no belief is excluded. I think we all have the right to state our opinions and listen to each other with an open mind and heart (no preconceived judgments or stereotypical small thinking allowed). Be open to change and new ideas that differ from your own. If you never do anything different, your life will stay the same. Do you want to be the same as you are today? 

So here is the bottom line for me personally, its never about pity, but rather compassion and complete honesty. 

Pain Sufferers Speak (PSS) is not just for pain peeps!! 

Everyone on this planet experiences pain at some point therefore we ALL need to educate ourselves about pain and coping with the physical, mental and spiritual ramifications of pain and any sort of negativity. Painspeaking is about communicating your pain in a healthy way with others who also live with pain or illness. This is not to be confused with complaining, but rather dropping off the negative junk so we can be healthier and better equipped to be the best people we can be and live up to our own potential. All parts of Pain Sufferers Speak practice No judgment and No criticism along with unconditional love and respect for all religions. If you think its not possible and sounds "goody two shoes" unreasonable, you will be pleasantly surprised to hear that I do very little conflict resolution in all 4 of my support groups! 

My favorite quote: "Be the change you want to see in the world."~Ghandi

Make it a meaningful day and pass on a smile when you can spare them.

Sending out love and hugs to everyone!! Liz xoxo

Have you checked out SPICIE??

Spicie is today’s woman. She is different. She is unique. The Spicie woman may be your sister. She may be your neighbor. She may be your co-worker. She may be your boss. She may be you. The Spicie woman is the woman that isn't satisfied with good enough, nor is she satisfied with the slant the mainstream media puts on news and issues regarding women. 
As far as women have come, there is still a long way to go. It is no secret that mainstream media is still male dominated. With that, comes male slant on the news. We respect male journalists and we do like men, but we are of the feeling that they don't always get news about women right. They don't always cover the issues we are most concerned about as women. That is where the women of Spicie come in. 
We don't hesitate to take on tough subjects the media often does not want to cover, or covers from the wrong angle. Yes, we like to bring you some entertaining pieces and tips, but what we strive to do is pickup where the news often leaves off. We aren't afraid to take a stand and share strong opinions. We are not the type that will sugarcoat what needs to be said. 
Furthermore, we aren't solely concerned with what is happening to us personally. We are concerned with women around the world, and the ladies of Spicie are from around the world. We are women of different ages, races, careers, family compositions, careers and opinions. We harness all we know and all we can learn to bring it to you so that you can decide for yourself. We are not here to tell you what to believe. Our purpose is to provide you with the information that is often lost in the shuffle. 
We are not just broadcasters, however. We like to hear from YOU. We make ourself present on social networks like Facebook Twitter and our site via comments. We want to know what you think. We want to know what you want us to shine a light on and report. Our goal is to make women better informed, more confident and ultimately, safer, happier and more fulfilled.
