The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines ‘Phobia’ as: “an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation.” This definition may sound harsh, and perhaps, that is why so many Americans suffer in silence. According to … Continue reading Fears And Phobias — Finding A Way Forward
One thing that I find so incredibly amusing – but sad – are people that work for a company, are getting paid enough to barely make it from paycheck to paycheck, have to work overtime just to break their back to pay for gas, but say that they “love their job.” I have experienced many people like this in my day, and just about all of them are just waiting to tell the truth.

Unfortunately, these prejudices can affect people deeper than you think. Oftentimes – especially men – we mask our true hurts by having a bravado that commands attention and acceptance. When, in fact, there is an inner cry that continues to be unheard. Eventually, that voice will be unable to speak any longer, and will turn numb. Then, a sense of feeling calloused and nonchalant trumps a … Continue reading Compart Mental Lies
