Family – emotional strings without content

Many have reported struggling with their families the past few months of lock downs and curfews, some saying that they have realized a lot about their families, including wives and husbands who sometimes have had to face that besides the children, they don't have that much in common.

I would see myself in that … Continue reading Wounds Lead to Entitlement or Healing?

A Ferocious Suffering

A hidden and ferocious type of suffering is a mental or physical pain that is stigmatized. It differs from any other pain in that it's not socially accepted to talk about, or feel. The person is left alone with the pain and the resulting self judgment. The feelings are most  particularly associated with those we … Continue reading A Ferocious Suffering

Mental Health – the best treatment
