Forgiving Yourself for the Pain You Caused

How to move on when you realize you were the cause of someone else’s pain and suffering.

Going through a breakup or heartbreak is an incredibly difficult and painful experience. You are left feeling betrayed, rejected, afraid, lonely, and lost. A future you had imagined is now dead. You are left without the person that, for better or worse, your life centered around for months, years, or even longer.

There is No Peace Through Anger

We live in political society dominated by tribalism. The two party system in the United States has fed into an already natural human propensity to view life as “us versus them”. Recent years have especially exacerbated this point with politicians locking in on the issues that have the highest likelihoods to be divisive and garner the attention and votes they need so that the party (and the individual politicians) remain in power.

What this has led to, along with increasing attention to inhumane acts against minorities domestically and abroad, is an atmosphere of outrage and anger among the right and the left.

The purpose of this article is to explore the idea that “an angry generation can’t bring peace”.

Are You Living?

Are you living?

I ask you, dear reader, this question that I have begun to ask myself lately.

I do not mean it to be dramatic nor hyperbolic. Instead, I am curious as to what everyone’s honest answer is, including and especially my own.

Of course I mean to ask more than are we all alive. By living, I mean to ask are we actively present and experiencing our environment on a daily, hourly, or minute-by-minute basis.

This may be where the question becomes a tad bit more complicated than you first thought. Or maybe you are in a similar state of mind as I am and knew exactly what I meant when I asked you the question.

The Struggles of a Multipotentialite

multipotentialite

The term “multipotentialite” is used to describe someone who has a multitude of interests and creative pursuits and has no “one true calling”.

If this is a real character trait, then I consider myself a multipotentialite.

My interests vary greatly. They include acting, professional wrestling, journalism, cooking (food, in general), music, current events, reading, writing, politics, entrepreneurship, and more.

Book Review: The Defining Decade

 

Our “thirty-is-the-new-twenty” culture tells us the twentysomething years don’t matter. Some say they are a second adolescence. Others call them an emerging adulthood. Dr. Meg Jay, a clinical psychologist, argues that twentysomethings have been caught in a swirl of hype and misinformation, much of which has trivialized what is actually the most defining decade of adulthood.
