Hat’s Off To The Graduates


By Paula Susan

Spring is busting out all over, and students everywhere are excited but scared, at the same time, to move on to the next level in their education.

Some arrived at this point through hardships and disabilities. They were determined, and they made it.

Some were survivors of emotional, physical, psychological and sexual forms of abuse. They somehow knew there was something inside of them that was worth cultivating.

There is some sadness in letting go – of routines, teachers, and friends. There is an awareness in everyone that they are moving from their childhood into an adult world.

Some of these students were blessed with money to support the schools of their choice. Some were not.

When I graduated from graduate school, I was infused with joy. In middle age, I achieved my goal of 4.0.  Had I found a way into college after High School, there is no knowing where I would be at my present age of 77.  I am proud to say that I have spent most of my life healing others. I am still doing it.

Who could hope for better?

So, our hats off to those embarking on the next part of their journey. Remember to enjoy each moment.

Be in gratitude that you have had this opportunity.

Empowering Ourselves Interview

A Message From Paula Susan

During this terrible crisis and isolation, Paula Susan, Trauma and Relationship Specialist since 1982, is here to help you.  We can speak through telephone or Zoom and I will do counseling  that can transform your life.  Traumas - big and little - change the way we feel about ourselves, each other and the world.

I continue to study with the masters in my field.  And, I have integrated the most valuable ways of healing different issues, into the EMDR which I have creatively made my own.
