Who are you? 

I don't mean the collection of things you identify as. The traits and experiences you tell others to describe yourself. Who is actually in there making those decisions and telling those stories?

Depression can dig someone deeper and deeper into a pit of despair and deprive you of your energy, hope, and drive. The tricky part of depression is that it attacks the very things that would help you get better.

We haven't had a new episode in about a month. That is because I've been dealing with a particularly deep and extended bout of depression. This episode talks about what I learned from this one and the cop... Read more

Are you familiar with the term Mettā (Loving kindness)?

One of the most common rebuttals to "we should have compassion for EVERY SINGLE HUMAN" is something to do with those among us that do truly horrible things. Do they deserve our compassion? Should we just allow them to run amok?

Who are you surrounding yourself with? 

Are these people you want to be more like?
