The Value of Friendship

Many of us will remember as children being told what to, and what not to talk about with others.  Many times, I remember being yelled at by my mother for talking about, what to me, seemed like a small incident or occurrence in the house.  What made it worse for me, is that somehow the … Continue reading The Value of Friendship

Repeating the Same Message

When we hear a message over and over, whether it is from the same source, or multiple sources, our immediate ego reaction is to maybe get irritated, tune it out, try and ignore it.  We may even actively start speaking against it. When this happens, when we hear the same message repeated, it usually indicates … Continue reading Repeating the Same Message

When We Want a Different Answer…

Often in life, we find ourselves repeating the same behaviors every time certain emotional issues come up.  These behaviors can be damaging, both to ourselves, and to those around us.  We know that these behaviors are not working, and yet, we keep doing the same things expecting a different response - a change somewhere else … Continue reading When We Want a Different Answer…

Workplace DramaRama – It’s a Theater Funhouse!

So yesterday I wrote about employers, and how many of them are failing their employees.  Today, I'm reversing the view, and I'm going to discuss how employees can do better.

Happy 4/20.  Whether you celebrate the day or not, today is a good day to talk about how we are influenced in our daily lives by what happens when big business, government and media meet and we are caught in the middle.  This happens every day, and most of us do  not realize just how … Continue reading Taking Back Our Choices

Dealing With Hypocrisy

Before we started our path to healing, we were all just as guilty.  Now, hopefully we are learning to overcome it.  It's also something that we all love to hate.  I'm talking about hypocrisy.  Being angry someone else for what we ourselves are guilty of but will not acknowledge. Sometimes we will commit an act, … Continue reading Dealing With Hypocrisy

Feeling Alone

Sometimes when things get truly bad, it feels like we are totally and completely alone.  It is important to remember that even when we are alone in a space, we are never alone.  The Spirit is also with us constantly. It is also important to remember, that no matter what happens, nothing is ever as … Continue reading Feeling Alone

Healing Yourself Through Pain With Others

I remember when I was younger being told, if you don't like something about someone, look for it in yourself.  I also remember many "disagreements" with others where I was criticized, yelled at or otherwise told something was wrong with me, which also happened to be something I didn't like about the person I was … Continue reading Healing Yourself Through Pain With Others

How Our Unconscious Actions Affect Others
