Everyone has an opinion about what happened and who is responsible in the recent incident involving Ray Rice and his then fiancé Janay Palmer. The details of the case continue to be investigated. What is known is that Domestic Violence is a problem effecting men, women, and children:
If you are a victim, reach our for support. If you struggle with your controlling your anger, reach out for help. These words were sent to me by a client, and I thought they were significant enough to share with all of you.
WE NEED TO TEACH OUR DAUGHTERS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
A MAN WHO FLATTERS HER
AND A MAN WHO COMPLIMENTS HER.
A MAN WHO SPENDS MONEY ON HER
AND A MAN WHO INVESTS IN HER.
A MAN WHO VIEWS HER AS PROPERTY
AND A MAN WHO VIEWS HER PROPERLY.
A MAN WHO LUSTS AFTER HER
AND A MAN WHO LOVES HER.
A MAN WHO BELIEVES
HE IS GOD'S GIFT TO WOMEN
AND A MAN WHO REMEMBERS
A WOMAN WAS GOD'S GIFT TO MAN
AND THEN TEACH OUR SONS TO BE THAT KIND OF MAN.
Transitions – Movement, passage, or change from one position, state, stage, subject, or concept to another.
We all can undoubtedly count on changes or transitions in our lives. This time of year many of us are experiencing transitions from summer to fall,vacation to work, no school to school, college, or maybe entering the workforce for the first time. Some of these transitions are positive: a marriage,birth of a child, graduation, and some transitions are negative: a break-up,death, loss of job. Adapting to change is key in leading a more fulfilling life. Below are five of my favorite coping strategies for transition.
