Shocking Discovery: You Don’t Owe Anyone Anything Nor Do They Owe You

Mother/Saint Teresa wasn't as completely unselfish as what we've been made to believe or she would have us believe.  Are you gasping at that statement yet? I'm sure that you are if you know anything about the woman. Yes, no doubt whatsoever she did many wonderful things for others throughout her life and devoted herself... Continue Reading →

When Do I Get To Have Fun?

I woke up this morning and the first question or thought that hit me was, "when do I get to have fun?" It may sound strange to ask oneself such a question when we are really in control of things like that.  Yes, we all have responsibilities and some of them are all consuming with...

When Your Adult Child Becomes Abusive
