This year has been a challenging one in many ways. But it’s brought us unparrelelled opportunities for learning important lessons, especially the importance of character.
The ultimate tragedy of our times is that decent, naturally luminous people get snatched from the light within them by disturbed characters and have a hard time finding their way back.
If ever there were a time for the loving energy within us to shine, it’s now. But that takes courage and determination. And most of all, it takes faith.
Healthy boundaries are essential for protecting our hearts. But an overly defended or hardened heart finds true intimacy difficult.
Empowering attitudes are ways of looking at life and the world that are both freeing and confidence building.
To become empowered partners in abusive relationships have to see through their manipulator’s tactics, knowing in their heart how to distinguish a victim from a victimizer.
Do we all need therapy? Perhaps not. Could most of us benefit from a little therapy? Probably, especially if it’s the right kind.
Many folks enjoy a healthy and sometimes rewarding or even fulfilling relationship with work. But for disturbed characters work is more than literally a four-letter word, especially when it benefits someone or something else.
Amorous narcissists can bowl you over with what appears much love and affection. And you typically come to realize what’s really going only after your heart is breaking or has already been broken.
Mistaking interest for regard is all too common these days. It’s how folks with high hopes at the beginning of a relationship sadly later find themselves exploited and abused.
