A newlywed young man was sitting on the porch on a humid day, sipping ice tea with his Father. Continue
As he talked about adult life, marriage, responsibilities, and obligations, the Father thoughtfully stirred the ice cubes in his glass and cast a clear, sober look on his Son.
"Never forget your friends," he advised, "they will become more important as you get older." "Regardless of how much you love your family and the children you happen to have, you…

1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other

In this journey we call life, we learn quickly to adapt, to shrink ourselves to fit in. A shape shifter of sorts trying to be accepted. It can be a useful tool but also detrimental to us without us even realising it.
Every time you allow someone to hurt you or to try change you and the words "its ok" comes out of your mouth. Another piece of your soul is destroyed. If we dont express how we feel, and explain its not ok, that we feel used or betrayed or simply ignored or unnoticed we… Continue

I am six. My babysitter’s son, who is five but a whole head taller than me, likes to show me his penis. He does it when his mother isn’t looking. One time when I tell him not to, he holds me down and puts penis on my arm. I bite his shoulder, hard. He starts crying, pulls up his pants and runs upstairs to tell his mother that I bit him. I’m too embarrassed to tell anyone about the penis part, so they all just think I bit him for no reason.
I get in trouble first at the… Continue

As a life coach and nurse, I end up talking to people about some pretty heavy stuff sometimes. Occasionally, there are tears. Tears that are usually followed by the inevitable words: "I'm sorry for being so emotional" or "I'm sorry for crying."
Statements like these break my heart because they imply that the tears are somehow inappropriate, embarrassing, or unwarranted. Nothing could be further from the truth. Having a big ol' mascara-running,… Continue
