The Biggest Wastes of Time We Regret When We Get Older

Well I can honestly say that sometimes someone has something better to say than you or I do! Meet Kristen Wong. I don't know her but I think she is brilliant! She has uncovered the secret to stop wasting the most precious time we have on this earth. It's funny but at 22 I had just come out of the Vietnam Era army and had my whole life in front of me. I went to college and went to work but I didn't work hard enough at learning how to live so that at this age (65) I would not have so many regrets. I don't care who you are, where you live, what age you are wasting time trying to make things work that will eat up your precious lifetime. Enjoy the article but more importantly, LEARN FROM IT!

The Abuser's Reaction To Rebuke or Divorce

As a counselor, one of the most frustrating scenarios is pointing what the language of abuse is. Why is it so difficult for men and women who have lived in abusive situations to realize the terrible effect the abuse they have absorbed has done to them? They come for help but many refuse to deal with why they are miserable. They become conditioned, and many actually become protectors and defenders of their abusive partner-Stockholm Syndrome.

Yes, a real marriage between two loving and caring partners is sacred, but just as Israel broke it's covenant with God on multiple occasions God finally divorced Israel...not once bu…
