This is the only post I will make about this unfortunate couple, I promise. I am intrigued not by the specific details of their and but our fascination with and peering into the of public figures. What makes us click on and read about this type of stuff? What are we hoping to learn as a result? Is it just idle time wasting or are we interested in learning about ourselves in the process? What lessons can we extract from their actions and decisions? How are we alike and different from these people (other than the fact that they’re rich and famous)? I also wonder if they wish that their misery and misguided choices were not so thoroughly on display? If you or I make mistakes, the whole world is not on alert and judging us, or calling us or worse. I kind of like having a smaller audience for my screwups, personally. What about you?

You probably know someone who never worked through the stuck negative parts of their history and suffered later in life as a result… with substance abuse, anger problems, anxiety and the like. That extreme doesn’t work, clearly! But neither does perseveration and retelling their trauma stories either. Finding a good balance between ruminating and avoiding can be challenging. So why do it alone? and are great approaches to releasing your rigidity and painful reliving of the past hurts.

A mother’s job is to and protect her young, to facilitate the growth and potential of her children to come into fruition. When the mother is compromised by mental illness, substance abuse, or other factors that impair her functioning, it can thwart the development of her offspring. We must do everything in our power to help parents be successful and effective in their efforts to raise their children, and support their own mental and physical well-being. This will benefit us as well, in our communities, societies and globally as well. If you are a mama, we salute you in this very important enterprise of giving and sustaining life. Happy Mother’s Day to you, and may we honor your happiness and love for your families! ♥️

Do you struggle to have and keep good relationships with your family, friends and lovers? You might make global assumptions about who is safe and who to reject based on how you were treated as a youngster. Or you might use to decide how to act in#relationships … both of which usually don’t work too well for happiness and longevity in the relationships. When you get clarity on what’s going on in the present vs what is from your you have a much better chance to make good decisions than before.

Loving others is not always happy go lucky and smooth. In fact it opens us up to intense vulnerability and the potential to be hurt by loss or rejection. But that’s what makes it so special. In fact, grief is a form of love ❤️ that is an indication that we were willing to risk and pain when the is no longer on earth 🌍. is courageous, messy, tough and magical at the same time. It drives us mad but also sustains and enriches our existence. In essence, it is our true, naked nature. ❤️
