Quote of the day

We can alter the manner in which we reject others. Be honest and forthright about boundaries– do not apologize; you did nothing wrong; you are simply informing them that it is not working, which is perfectly fine. While this may sound harsh, it is preferable relatively to ghosting.

Quote of the day

Many people develop their own way of looking at the world, values, and beliefs when they are away from home for a period of time, such as while attending college. We create our own cultures that are distinct from that in which we grew up, and these cultures may or may not be in agreement with what our parents know or have taught us. And that’s okay, what we were taught still remains close to our hearts.

Quote of the day

We have evolved to the automation of simply being with the intention of nothingness. We pose questions and provide fake responses because that is simply how things are. We have been socialized to conceal our emotions from the outside world. The majority of us cannot fathom responding with “I’m feeling quite down today, but thank you for asking” rather than “OK, thanks for asking.” This is something we are all guilty of… but why?
