Closing Statement from AbdelRahman Siddig

We can not avoid the feeling of pain it good feeling if we know how to use it

    May 17 2012: As a creative person, some of the "painful" experiences come from people who "steal" my ideas and try to sabotage my projects... projects that are close to my heart, such as writing a book, running a community workshop for no financial benefit but to support others in developing their creativity. I am a resilient person and not in the least bit paranoid (I tend to be very trusting and give others the benefit of the doubt, even if I notice signs that they are capable of a certain destructive behavior)

    However, I ACCEPT it is what it is. I remain true to myself and my integrity in spite of threats. Such experiences cannot be avoided, meaning, one cannot go into a primitive form of fight, flight and fright response. I teach ways to develop strategies and resilience, self-belief to be able to DISCERN the motives of others. What we resist, persists so I don't waste energy getting upset that such things exist.

    They make me stronger and more determined to support others build their creative confidence and not only meet such challenges (attacks) but thrive and continue to grow and even experience joy in what they are doing.

    I focus on authenticity, integrity and contribution/making a difference! Always look for ways to shift from victim to victor and tell a story of how i am making it!
