The Truth Truly Does Hurt

Anytime that I've grown as a person, it's because someone told me the truth regardless of whether or not it hurt my feelings. It's easy to appease someone's ego by telling them that they're wonderful and everything they're doing is awesome. But, the real growth comes when you are able to hear what you need [...]

Thinking About Something 100 Times Doesn’t Solve The Problem

The way my brain works is weird. I guess that's a simplistic way to put it. I'm not sure about other people's brains, but I know a whole lot about mine. It goes and goes and goes. I remember as a child and a teenager thinking constantly. Thoughts were always going on in there. I [...]

OCD and ADHD are Friends

Upon finding out that I had OCD, I have to say I wasn't necessarily surprised, but I was depressed. I didn't want to admit it to myself. In a way, I was relieved, because I had been misdiagnosed for so many years and now I knew what the hell was wrong with me. I could [...]

Does Social Media Help or Hurt You?

We live in a digital age where our feelings are out there online. Most people I know are on Facebook and/or Twitter. Some of them I've met in "real life" while others I've only known from the Internet. I value and treasure all my friendships, but I'm wondering how awesome social media is these days. [...]

Four Things We Can Learn From Astronauts

Astronauts have a demanding job. They have to perform research in a place that is completely foreign to them. It's not even another country, they are out there in space. They are performing this specific kind of research in a "microgravity environment." It's not like the research a scientist might perform in a lab. They [...]

You Have More Power Than You Think

I met a woman in Starbucks today who changed my life. She said to me "you have more power than you think you do." This resonated with me for a couple of reasons. I was feeling like I didn't know what I was doing in my life, and I was focusing on what I couldn't [...]

Oh hey, I have OCD!

I was in therapy today talking about the variety of symptoms of the shit I deal with. My therapist was patiently listening to me and all of a sudden she said, "based on what you're telling me I think you have OCD." It was if fireworks exploded over my head. Everything made sense. I never [...]

Reframing thoughts from negative to positive

I am making a conscious effort to reframe my thoughts to positive ones from negative ones. I'm not going to say it's easy because it isn't; especially when you're feeling depressed. When you are depressed the negative thoughts are extremely persistent. However, you have the capability to reframe them into positive ones. Here's an example: [...]
