Repay the Debt

One of the ways that I find peace is to pay debts. Not the credit card kind. I don't think anyone really enjoys paying those back. There is some time in your life you've had to feel a debt owed you had to pay back. The tug that you need to pay someone or something... Continue Reading →

Empathy and Sympathy Not the Same

Wanted to take a little break from resilience this month and share a video I ran across. I've been studying empathy and compassion a bit. I came across this video that brilliantly paints a picture between what some people think is empathy, when sympathy is really what it is. The video itself is about 3:54... Continue Reading →

The Ugly Side of Resilience

As I've been writing all month about resiliency and all the great things about this great habit that works to make you that way, I began to study the other side. Is it possible that resilience has an ugly side? I assumed it can be like any habit that if over used can be as... Continue Reading →

Self-Compassion Is Not Self-Esteem

It's a common mistake made between self-compassion and self-esteem. Just like we can easily swap in error sympathy and empathy which are also very different.
