Best of Our Blogs

It’s easy to slip into the “coulda, woulda, shouldas” of our lives. There’s the trip you didn’t take. The relationship you might have ended too soon. The career that sits, still waiting to be pursued.

And though it maybe difficult to admit, it’s not the boss that held you back or the friend that slighted you. In fact, there’s probably some true to the saying that “you are your own worst enemy.”

It’s the weekend again. It’s June. Summer is upon us. Why not take the time to reflect on why you’re holding yourself back?

A few days ago, I asked our Facebook friends what’s the best decision they ever made. It was one of our most popular topics and we received responses on everything from living to accepting their life. (By the way, I find the most inspiration from your comments. Keep posting them.) I asked that question because I think a lot of times when faced with a road with too many options and the fear of taking the wrong one, we forget that we already tackled tough decisions in the past. We made it and it led to something wonderful in our lives.

Maybe it’s a good time to remember that again. Maybe it’s the perfect time to begin working on goals made at the beginning of this year. Maybe it is finally the right time to start working on you. What do you think?

This is for You

(Channel N) – A moving video on YouTube goes viral and makes it to our top five list. Why? Because it’s a poetic and riveting tribute for those suffering from depression and contemplating suicide.

Can a Marriage Survive an Affair?

(Healing Together for Couples) – This is a great article for those who are thinking about having an affair and those who have already done so. Why? While it shows that a marriage can be saved, it also demonstrates all the work involved in repairing it.

Hoarding OCD: OCD or Something Else?

(Anxiety & OCD Exposed) – Although it doesn’t have its own diagnostic category in the DSM yet, there is enough distinction between Hoarding OCD and OCD that some psychologists agree that it should. Are you a huge collector of stuff? Does all the stuff take up a significant part of your home? If you answered yes to both, you may have the major characteristics of Hoarding OCD.
