Depression

Unless you have suffered from depression, it is nearly impossible to know what it’s really like. Even if you grew up with someone who suffered from it, you don’t know what it’s like to be depressed. You just know what it’s like to live with someone who is depressed. From the outside looking in, depression […]

Understanding & Forgiving

I feel sometimes resentment and anger seem involuntary, like reactions you have to indulge for a length of time proportionate to how badly you were wronged. It might even feel like your anger is a justified retaliation, and you would be weak if you just let it go. The irony is that after we have […]

Don't Give Up!

“Doing your best means never stop trying.”    I like to plan; for the evenings, for the weekend, for when I am not at work. I like to make a plan and be as productive as I can with my spare time. I enjoyed making a long list of goals each week with a meticulously […]
