Numerous childfree thoughts, Hidden Brain podcast thoughts, being supportive and life updates

I posted a thread on Twitter which reads:‪If you feel that you have to tell people how great you are, then you aren’t that great…period!! This thought of mine comes to me cuz of a recent Twitter discussion I saw/participated in. And in this discussion, folks were talking about someone in the blind community whose …

My first-ever guest post on someone’s blog, assorted thoughts on living a childfree life, how I find comfort as an atheist and more

I recently wrote my first-ever guest post for someone’s blog. I wrote about how grief and trauma changes us. More specifically I wrote things that quite frankly should be said more regularly. And ironically I wrote this post right as I found out about a recent loss of someone I care deeply about–mom, to be …

List of Things I’m Thankful for, November 2019

For years I’ve seen people post on social media about things that they’re thankful for; however *I’ve* never actually done something like that myself, until *this* year.

Yesterday evening I watched part of a video on YouTube where someone talked about why they use a wheelchair instead of walking. I commented on the person’s FB post that contained said video but I want to post said response here, along with some expansion. My response reads:I feel the exact same way as the …

Thoughts On Bullshit The TV Show, And A Couple Rants

Tuesday evening I finished reading Adult Children Of Emotionally Immature Parents: How To Heal From Distant, Rejecting Or Self-involved Parents. All in all, I’m glad I read said book; I’d definitely recommend it to anyone, even if you aren’t someone who has toxic relatives yourself. Because I think it’s helpful to learn about different kinds …

Throughout the day Friday I tried figuring what in the hell went wrong with the formatting of my latest blog entry. But try as I might, I *couldn’t* figure it out. But that being said, I stuck with said task until I was satisfied with the way the blog entry looked. Saturday morning I finished …

One thing I read in the book The Empath Experience that I haven’t written about in my blog yet, is the author’s suggestion that readers challenge themselves to get out of their comfort zones just for the hell of it. More specifically though, this author suggested for readers of this book to ask complete strangers …
