When faith returns

I have been doing a lot of reflecting lately, looking at old journals and blog posts, overall just looking back. I have realized how much I go back and forth with spirituality. I go through phases where I am feeling extremely spiritual, followed by phases of feeling so far removed from spirituality, etc. Most especially, […]

Ask a Cat Mom: “Should I put my cat in a cage?”

Q: “Should I put my cat in a cage, the same way that dogs go in a cage? Is there ever a need for this?” A: Cats value freedom. When you lock your cat up in a cage, it makes them stressed and anxious, as they feel very unsafe with no escape route. Cats are […]

A toxic connection

A toxic connection will destroy you like a drug. Gradually decaying inside, you force a smile and pretend that everything is okay, because that’s your only way of surviving. You have never felt more fear in your entire life. So badly, you want to tell someone how scared you are — but that would mean […]

Anger is a shield, not a weapon

We are conditioned to believe that emotions are wrong, both the “good” and the “bad.” Of all the emotions, it seems that we fear anger the most. We believe that anger comes from a place of arrogance, that it leads to dangerous behavior and negative actions. In reality, it is the suppression of anger that […]

When I say, “I’m a writer…”

When I say, “I’m a writer,” it does not necessarily mean I am a good one, and certainly not better than most. It does not mean I am sitting next to the highest and most qualified writers of all time. It does not make me special in any way. It’s simply what I do. When […]
