    I think it’s par for the course, part of the grieving process.

But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion.

    You really don’t want this. If others can’t convince you maybe I can.

Long story short, I moved away, got my heart broken and felt like shit. I didn’t have any…[Read more]

    I like plain white, blue and brown and my wife likes pink, green and other vibrant colors and we end up having a colorful room which our daughter likes a lot.

    Even neighbor kids are present here all day.
