Negative caricatures of aging are far too prevalent in our culture -- and they are harmful.

Cancer was a mixed blessing -- proving since my husband couldn't carry me, he didn't deserve to marry me. But cancer didn't just injure my body; it destroyed me emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and financially.

People are attracted to other people who "feel good" to them. The people you most likely feel great around are the people who are easy to be with, who make you feel good about yourself, and who encourage you to be your best self.

Redskin Psychology: The Origins of Cruel Caricatures

Wray Herbert | Posted 08.11.2014 | Science
Wray Herbert

My hometown football team has been under fire for many years for using the derogatory term "redskin" as its team mascot. As it should. Indeed, the stereotype existed long before the football team -- even before football. But where and how do such mean-spirited and distorted caricatures get started?

Blacks In Prison: Perception And Punishment

One would expect such patently unfair statistics to cause outrage, and calls for more leniency in penal laws, but is it possible that the opposite occurs? Might the blackness of the prisons lead to more, not less, punitive attitudes and policies?

You don't have to run. Play tennis, cross-country ski, meet a friend for racquetball during your lunch hour. Find a way to work your body hard on a consistent basis and don't decide if you're an optimist or a pessimist until that's the routine. You may not believe how much your outlook on life changes.

When routine, whether in action or attitude, becomes too comfortable or constrictive, it's often a clue we're limiting ourselves.

Like most, I've been a victim of anger, hatred, sadness, and fear. I've been hurt by those who are closest to me. I've been hurt by those who were suppose to protect me. But instead of absorbing the anger and spitting it back out to others, I decided to look at it differently.
