David Shechtman

Stepping into change requires a reconciliation between the old and the new. Nobody, no matter what the circumstance, completely transforms as a person when going through change. It's not a 100 percent shift. Some parts of a person endure. It's the way things have to be.

Will some people have hurt feelings if you decline their invitations and delete their messages? Probably. That's tough to accept, but the alternative is worse. Trying to manage other people's emotions while tuning out your own is exhausting. It harms your health and your relationships.

Is Love Really All You Need?

Linda Bloom LCSW and Charlie Bloom MSW

Love asks more of us than to simply feel a strong attraction to another person. It asks (or demands) that we put our own desires and preferences aside and replace them with a desire to serve the desires of our partner, not always, but probably more often than most of us would want to.

Daniel B. Peters, Ph.D. | Posted 07.21.2015 | Parents
Daniel B. Peters, Ph.D.

We are raising children in an age where there seems to be more worry and fear about everything, and less ability to persevere and cope in the face of adversity. Our modern day technological culture promotes doing things easier and quickly. Exerting the least amount of effort for the greatest impact and reward seems to be most valued.

This weekend my daughter and her friend scrambled up onto a Merry-Go-Round. The kind you see outside of the grocery store. They were probably a little too big for it but they didn't care. They waited patiently for the ride to start. Then it did and they were Not Happy.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the production and development of Disney•Pixar's film "Inside Out." The film is named "Inside Out" because it is about the inner workings of the mind, which controls how people behave.

You Have Permission to Walk Out

My guilt gauge is overly responsive. It goes off at the slightest 'infraction,' so I can't look to it for a true reading. Instead, I can acknowledge false guilt, then make a deliberate choice about what I want to do.
