Benzodiazepines Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

September 29th, 2014

Benzodiazepines (aka tranquilizers) such as xanax, ativan, valium and klonopin can be very helpful on an intermittent or short term basis but when used daily, continuously, chronically they are a prescription for disaster because on a long term basis they are extremely likely to cause cognitive impairment and memory deficits, among other things, and can increase your odds of getting Alzheimer’s Dementia.

Can People Really Change?

September 27th, 2014

Yes. People can really change. It’s not easy but it can be done. With vigilance, diligence, practice, persistence, and perseverance, it can be done. How do I know this for sure? Because I have changed. I have used the cognitive and spiritual tools I share in my posts and videos to transform myself, to eliminate self-sabotaging behaviors, to release judgments, to accept and forgive, to communicate more effectively. And the end result has been happiness and inner peace. It worked for me. It can work for you. But you need to do the work.

What Can You Do To Convince Someone You Care About That They Are An Alcoholic or Addict?

September 24th, 2014

One can try an intervention, bringing friends and loved ones together to confront the person. One can try “tough love” which involves discontinuing any enabling behavior, and letting the person know that they must help themselves and take steps towards abstinence and recovery if they want continued support. But the truth is that there is little one can do to convince an alcoholic or addict that they have a problem if the person is in denial. Usually they must totally trash their life and “hit a bottom” before acknowledging they have a problem.

Go After Your Dreams

September 18th, 2014

Success is in the doing. Whether you hit it big or not, if you give it your best shot, you’re a winner. Much better than living a life of quiet desperation, always wondering if you might have pulled it off, always regretting that you didn’t try. As the expression goes, it’s not the destination, it’s the journey. And the journey usually never disappoints because you meet new people and you experience new things you likely never would have had you not taken that fork in the road. So I encourage you to step up to the plate and go the distance.

Why Most Relationships Fail

September 13th, 2014

Most relationships fail because when they are in need of repair one or both partners refuse to let go of their resentments, their hurts and their harsh judgments of their partner, and so they see their partner as they were, not as they are now. This prevents healing. This prevents growth. We must let go of our past resentments and try to see our partner in a positive light despite how he or she has behaved in the past. Give the benefit of the doubt. Don’t assume the worst. And, above all else, forgive past hurtful actions. Without forgiveness there can be no true reconciliation.
