In healthy, loving relationships there is mutual care, support, consideration and love.

Creating a Little Stability in a Time of Instability

The past couple of weeks have been surreal. It's hard to believe what is happening.

Remember That News Media Gets Paid For High Ratings

I avoid most news media because of the embellishments they tend to make to get high ratings and because it's all mostly bad news.  They spread bad news because it puts people in fear, then they watch the news to see if they can let go of the fear yet, if anything has changed.  Just… Continue reading Remember That News Media Gets Paid For High Ratings
