Reading Time: 6 minutes Often the one person you’re stuck with for life (you), is also the most mistreated and neglected (by you). Let’s dive right in, shall we? I’ll begin by explaining what I mean by self-abuse. Abuse, as per Google, is defined as treating someone “with cruelty or violence, regularly or repeatedly.” Self-abuse is thus the act […]

An abstract painting of a person with their eyes covered with yellow paint,

Reading Time: 4 minutes I have seen people who are hurt and depressed spiral into crippling depression rather suddenly, losing their energy and desire to live. A lot of people face depression—at least 264 million people world-wide—and that statistic is pre-pandemic (WHO, 2020). Crippling depression may include symptoms of major depression such as a loss of appetite or interest […]

An abstract painting of several figures hugging in a semicircle.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Hugs matter! One hug from the right person takes all your stress away. Hugs also have fabulous healing benefits. Are you a hug or a handshake kind of person?

A painted portrait of a wary, purple-faced woman.

Reading Time: 4 minutes “Four Strategies for Recognizing Your Beauty When You Feel Ugly” first appeared in Your Tango on May 27th, 2020.

A portrait of a face that falls somewhere between cubist and impressionist.

Reading Time: 5 minutes You aren’t going to want to hear this. You’re headstrong, stubborn, independent and determined. These are all qualities which will be useful later in life, but—you should hear me out. I write this because I know what happens next. I know what you were forced to do, how you suffered then and for so many […]

An abstract mainting with light colors and a figure representing a person in the foreground.

Reading Time: 4 minutes I was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) on April 26, 2007. I received one year of chemo and one month of radiation. Undergoing both treatments simultaneously was not easy. With chemo, I lost my hair. My appetite evaporated. It made me felt nauseous and would indeed cause me to throw up. When I was getting treated […]

An abstract painting with a shadow figure amidst colorful dimensions.

Reading Time: 6 minutes “In every life we have some trouble. When you worry, you make it double. Don’t worry, be happy.” If life were as simple as Bobby McFerrin sang in his popular hit, there wouldn’t be so many depressions, anxiety disorders or addictions worldwide anymore. We could throw all antidepressants and tranquilizers in the garbage bin, we […]

Reading Time: < 1 minute   The truth is most people’s lives are based on the beliefs of a malnourished community.  It starts out with the beliefs of our parents and families, then our friends and then our co-workers.  We’re working with programming that doesn’t nourish us.
