Don’t Change Too Much

If there were two little words that I’ve probably used more than any other two words, it would be these: “I’m sorry” You might already know where I’m going with this, especially because of the title, but I want speak on this topic anyway. And I’m not going to say anything mind-blowingly new here. Several…

A Modern Approach to: How To Win Friends and Influence People

So this is going to be a little bit off-topic then my more recent posts. I’ve recently been listening to the audio-book How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, a classic if you may, and I’m not really trying to provide any kind of summary, as you’ll find about 10 million of…

“You Should Seek Professional Help”

I’m going to start this post with what I’m about to say it’s going to be an extremely unpopular opinion for a lot of people out there. The funny thing about unpopular opinions is that they are often unpopular because within them hides that small grain of truth most of us don’t want to face…

Everyone Is Alone

I’ve just finished up the book, Island, by Aldous Huxley, and I’ve gotta say, it’s been one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read in a long time, possibly since the last Huxley book I read, A Brave New World, which I wrote a post about that here: A Brave New World. Anyway, there’s this scene towards the end…

Self Worth and Self Realization

I feel like this is going to be one of those sappy posts where I try to make myself, or who ever is reading this feel good. If not that, the initial presumption, based off the title, will give that pre-conceived perception of what this post might be about. And, well, it might be exactly…

People Are Weird.

There are a lot of weird people out there. But the truth of the matter is this, most of the time, your…

Message In Your Misfortunes

I’m reading a book called The Coddling of the American Mind by Jonathan Haidt, and although I’m not too far into it, I came across a part that really struck a chord with me. It was a speech by the Chief Justice, John Roberts. You can find it here: Chief Justice, John Roberts But I’ll go ahead…

Is Pain Real?

I haven’t written in quite a while. I think it might be two weeks since, and I apologize, if anyone is actually paying attention to me. I’ll tell you that there’s been a lot going on in my life, much more than I’m comfortable or willing to share, other than simply that there really has…

Portals into the Past: My Old Poetry

I was going through some of my old poetry I wrote, and don’t even ask why, because it’s beyond me. But as I was going through it, I was fully expecting to have just a series of cringes and maybe even a bit of disgust of myself; my old high school self. But that’s not…

Portals Into the Past

I still don’t understand how a single picture, it can bring back so many memories. It’s such an odd thing. It’s almost like we forget we still have these memories locked away in our unconscious minds. We go on with our lives like it never happened and BAM, you go through an old picture album,…
