Is Counseling Worth the Cost?

Life is expensive and built or destroyed by the choices made. Priorities are revealed by noting where money is spent. These choices either increase or decrease the quality of life. Choices are usually made between two desirable things. To choose one is to sacrifice the other. Often one brings immediate satisfaction and the other requires delayed gratification.

When individual and/or relationship health needs professional intervention, other desires should be sacrificed until mental and relationship health is restored. When counseling is denied or delayed, the loss in the quality of the relationships may deteriorate beyond repair.

If It Is Unsafe to Tell You No... I Cannot Tell You Yes

If it is unsafe for me to tell you “No,” what happens if I do?  If it is unsafe for me to tell you “No,” and I tell you “Yes,” what does my yes mean?  If it is not safe to tell you “No,” does it matter to you what I think, feel, and want?  If what I think, feel, and want does not matter to you, how do you think I feel about my life in this relationship?  If it is unsafe for me to tell you “No” then you do not care what is important to me and cannot love me, so the relationshi...  Read More...young married couple is it safe to say no

Maintaining Your Balance in Uncertain Times

Life is uncertain and hard.  Yet, life at its most difficult is liberating and good.  It calls us to our best and most determined self.  It separates us from our stuff so that our true self is able to emerge.  It enables us to differentiate that which is of lasting value from things with temporary satisfaction.  It separates the overcomer from the ones who are overcome.  It weeds out the weak and tests the strong to make them stronger.  It is impartial neither...

To Swat or Not

Have you noticed that children are born wild? They come into this world needing to be housebroken and domesticated.  They are self-centered, demanding and unaware of their parent’s needs and desires.  They sleep when they want to sleep and impatiently demand to be fed when they are hungry. When their bottom is wet or dirty, they fuss and fret until someone tries to change their diaper. They then fight against the effort of the person trying to restore their comfort.When they...
