Maybe the better question is, have you managed to avoid any of that? (Not likely!)

Psych Central’s bloggers have a ton of great information to help you get over those humps, so grab a cup of joe and settle into your weekend!

You Might Be in Trouble if You Don’t Know This One Thing About Your Mind
(Bounce Back: Develop Your Resiliency) — Our minds are designed to solve problems, but as we’ve evolved, our problems have evolved, and…well, sometimes our minds offer a little too much “help.” Bobbi Emel explains why you don’t always have to believe what your mind tells you and offers three ways to get your mind in check. (For some of us, this might be the best piece of information we receive all week.)

Bad Relationship Advice: Our Top 10 List
(Sorting Out Your Life) — You did know your partner’s a mind reader, right? Come on, we all know we can change our siggie others and if it doesn’t work out, hey, divorce is no big deal! Right. Well, you’ve probably at least heard or read a few of these relationship advice gems. Head over to Jenise Harmon’s list and add share your own horrible relationship tips!

Managing Energy Vampires
(Divine Intuition) — Lynn Robinson gives her take on “energy vampires” and offers tips on how to pinpoint who’s sucking the energy right out of you. She lets you know how to avoid those people and spend more time with folks who help boost your energy instead.

“It’s in God’s Hands:” What Does That Mean to You?
(Tales of Manic Depression) — “It’s in God’s hands.” Such a common expression, especially when there just doesn’t seem to be any answers we mere humans can find. Yet, as Erica Loberg points out, while some people believe in and have a strong relationship with God, others don’t feel as close and some don’t believe at all. How do you interpret this saying? Do you have something else that applies better to you?

It’s You, Not Me
(Therapy Soup) — Why are we so quick to take personally another person’s emotions and actions? Anger, sarcasm, rude gestures – we so often assume it’s all about us. Well, guess what! It’s not, and Richard and C.R. Zwolinski explain why.
