    1. Realize that people don’t think about you as much as you think they do. Don’t waste time thinking about what people may or may not be thinking.

    2. Be who you are, no matter who you’re with. Always be true to yourself, even when it makes you uncomfortable.

    3. People don’t know how to navigate life. Everyone makes it up as they go along.…[Read more]

    Death?
    Inevitable, you will die, most likely painful.

    There are many ways to deal with anger. Most of them don’t actually deal with the anger, but end up trying to turn it into a game of hide and seek. They cover it up with something that takes away that anger feeling and changes it to something that feels good, or fun, or happy, or something else. Just anything, but being mad. Nothing suckier than b…[Read more]

    Over the years, I’ve read too many books to count about stress, anxiety and depression. Like most people, I’m always looking for tips and clues about how to handle things better.

    Some of these books have turned out to be real stinkers. Others, retreads of books and articles that have said the same things over and over again.

    I’m sitting in the train and I hear someone crying, screaming, and howling in the next compartment.

    There was a crowd that’d gathered around whoever was crying.

    Intrigued, I rushed there.

    I see a girl, about my age, on the phone, crying her lungs out.

    I created a diversion “We will now watch a film.” The DVD player jammed. One guy began to yell personal insults (no kidding!). I saw a mix of mob excitement and pity wash across the crowd. To my horror, I got tears in my eyes. I announced “TEN MINUTE BREAK!”
