Instead of using labels like 'crazy' to define a complex human being, these books present complicated characters who show us the nuances of mental illness.
We don't need to jump into the arms and beds of different people until one of them decides to stay for a little while longer than the rest. We don't need titles and commitment that's rushed, or done so for any reason influenced by others.

Self-love is a game-changer. It will elevate you to live a life that feels purposeful and aligned with what you truly want. It will improve your relationships with others and boost your self-worth. So ask yourself... Aren't you worthy of your own, unconditional love?
You will not get altruism just by wishing for it. You need to train. You can do it twenty minutes a day, and you can do it a few seconds every hour. You stop, you look around, and whomever you see, you say, "May that person be happy. May that person flourish."
We spoke to some experts in order to find out more about the relationship between emotions and pain in specific areas of the body. Scroll through until you find the pain you've been experiencing to see what emotions might be causing the pain!

After celebrating 40 years of existence, I thought I'd share some tidbits of what I've learned. Change is the only constant in life. It moves forward regardless of how hard you resist. You are just a speck of sh*t in the grandness of the Universe. You are going to die. But that means you're alive.
