I am 74 years old. (I
don't think like it, don't feel like it, don't act like it.) Birthday 21
March. I am a grandfather with four grandchildren. I am trying to
retire from lecturing but my pusher keeps putting temptations in my way. Another self, I
think it's the 'take it easy' one has managed to get me into a 4-wheel drive Land Rover Discovery with
which I and my selves
are trying to escape from Brisbane more often, much to the pusher's
I like classical music (and 40s
and 50s Broadway musical numbers) when I am in my study writing and traditional country
and western and classic jazz when I am driving.
I am a direct descendant of
Captain William Bligh (Mutiny on the Bounty). Bligh later became the fourth
the NSW Colony in Australia where he got himself another mutiny (the Rum Rebellion). Our
family have some very interesting selves handed down from generation to generation
including a 'Captain Bligh self'. On the other hand I also have a strong
mutineer - rebel self as the opposite.
I have always had trouble with
an overly strong pusher, a rational mind, a knower or three and a 'gotta make it work
self' as well, all of whom are great for writing books and setting up websites, not so good for feeling or
being, so that is still my biggest challenge, but I'm getting there. Eleven years ago had a
totally unexpected heart attack and finished up with a major bypass op. (No family
history, no high cholesterol, not overweight, not a smoker - guess that it had
to be pusher related). Gradually learning to take it easier, stop and smell the
roses, exercise more better diet. My heart is now in better condition than it
has been in years.
My unbalanced core beliefs are
that I am of no value unless I am working, and that I can't make anything work. My
compensating skills include helping everyone else to feel valuable and helping everyone
else to get things to work. (What a combination for a relationship counsellor!)
My primary addiction is
workaholism but I am somewhere in recovery. I am dedicated to working the Twelve Steps to
maintain my recovery (when I should be going to a meeting I'm often too busy helping
