Let’s build people up rather than tear them down

Let's build people up rather than tear them down. Understand the power that we hold when we unite to stand against a cause or to support each other’s beliefs. I strongly believe one can never be happy at the expense of someone else. Let's all strive to possess true integrity and become the kind of... Continue Reading →


Vulnerability can help you heal

As much as we would like it to be otherwise, before we can overcome suffering, we need to go through it. Faking it until you make it does not lessen the pain. Neither does suffering in silence. On the contrary, swallowing up and hiding our pain only increases the risk of PTSD. Inner growth arises... Continue Reading →

Socializing with kids and teenagers

Every time we go out, people always ask my kid the same 2 questions: How are you? Do you like school? My kid has social anxiety and dyslexia, so school isn't her favorite question. She's learned that if she answers those questions honestly adults dismiss her feeling or say "don't worry it's going to get... Continue Reading →

A sincere apology

People who have integrity are usually really humble and always trying to become better human beings. If they have done anything wrong or have hurt someone even unintentionally, they apologize honestly, and they take steps to correct their mistakes. People who have integrity are always ready to admit that they did wrong and their apologies... Continue Reading →

Not everyone will like you and it’s okay

When you connect with people who are truly good for you, you feel it. Don't forget to acknowledge how great it is to be around someone who truly loves you and supports you up.
