This blog is my attempt to capture the most important events in my life, the ones that will be the ones remembered. I want to share this with my friends and family, those that will be impacted by these events in some way. I have a tendency to share the less important ones and the blog is intended to be a reminder of the important ones.
It’s kind of like a journal, but instead of writing in it, you write in it. This is how I remember the important events, and I hope you’ll do the same.
I really hope I can be a good example to others, but you never know. I’ve learned a lot about myself and who I am, I think. I also think I should be more careful about what I say, and perhaps be a little more open about how I really feel. I have to go now. Thanks for reading, and thanks for being my friends on this blog.
You guys keepin’ it real, doncha? We hope so. I’m glad I met you. You all could use a friend right now.
I think the way I feel right now is probably what made me start this blog. I hope my blog will help me be more aware of how I am feeling. I hope it will also help me be more aware of how my friends are feeling, too.
It’s not just me, but a growing number of psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals who are noticing that the way we express ourselves and get our point across can dramatically affect how others perceive us. We might be feeling a whole lot better about ourselves, but others can still see the cracks in our armor, and it can be stressful. As a result, some psychologists are calling on parents to be more “open and transparent” with their kids.
Parents are often the first to notice that their children are feeling a little down. Their own insecurity and anxiety may have been the catalyst for their depression, and if they don’t know it, these feelings can be a major symptom of it. But at least it’s something they can talk about with their kids. As a result, when adults are feeling down, it’s not always the best time for them to talk about it with their kids.
It might seem like its always a good idea to talk to one’s parents about their children’s difficulties, but it might also be a good idea to talk to them about their own. When my children started college and the stress of trying to balance their studies with their family was starting to get to them, I decided to start talking to my parents about it. As a result, my parents were very generous with their help.
Talking with your parents about your childrens’ difficulties might seem like an easy task, but it isn’t. Parents are often the ones who have the most to offer when it comes to dealing with difficult children, and it’s not always the easiest thing to do. One of the best things you can do is to take a little time to ask your parents questions and to come up with ways to get them to understand how you feel about something.
My parents are not the most understanding people, but when I asked them about my difficulties, they were eager to help. They offered advice regarding how I might approach my issues. They told me it is important to take responsibility for my situation.
