Do I continue to keep this information to myself and live with the gnawing guilt or do I confess and face the consequences? In general, secrets hurt…

The science of being charming

He walks into the room. You immediately notice. Something about him draws you. He pulls you into conversation and commands the attention of the people around you.

Are you mindstuck and need to change?

Have you ever thought, “If he/she would just change, things would be better?” But when you pressed for change, the person dug in their heels and was stubborn.

Alone together

Have you ever thought, “I am in a relationship, but I feel alone?” I call this alone together, the feeling of not being connected to an intimate other.

Handling disappointment

Disappointment happens all the time. People let us down and it hurts. But we never get used to being disappointed. For example, your father promised to take you to the Cubs game. He didn’t.
