Rewriting Anxiety’s Script

Are You the Definition of a Stay-Putter?

Bill was a classic stay-putter. Almost thirty, he’d never kept a job for more than a year. In between episodes of work, he found friends to take him in or crashed in his parents’ basement. By doing that, Bill was wearing out his welcome just about everywhere, including the basement. For almost a decade, Bill [...]

What the Media Tells Us About Love and Happiness

This is one of the Media's favorite paths to happiness.  If you can only find love, true love, you'll find happiness.  Of course, Media is also filled with the abject misery that falling in love can bring, as represented in big-screen films, newspaper stories, reality shows, magazine articles, and weekly sitcoms.
