Your Personality-Watered Down & Non-Existent…What a Shame!

Good Morning to My Followers,

I know I haven’t been blogging for a while, but I must say that I am so happy to be back.  I have a New mind set, life focus’s and a revamp blue print of blogging that most will love/like.

Moving forward, I’ve been watching and listening to Sheila Robinson-Kiss, who is a motivational speaker, and clinical social worker/therapist Youtube videos for a little over a year now.  And I couldn’t have come across a better speaker than her.  There are many, yet she’s one of my favorites. Her messages are clear, direct, passionate, and at times eye opening and may make you tear up or ponder, but that’s only because she uses examples from her years of counseling various kinds of people and their situations.  And examples from her own experiences as well.  I recommend you to listen to this video, I wouldn’t waste your precious time.  Give it a listen, and let me know what you think.

A cross between insanity and reason…

I love this article and think you might too! Thanks Jessica…

I tend to think that I’m reasonable. There is nothing that you can’t explain to me that I won’t understand or try to understand. I heed advice because I’d rather avoid the pitfalls of life than go through something that someone can help me avoid. I think I’ve been through more than enough at this stage of my life.

The one thing that drives me insane is that I don’t listen to people who don’t have a leg to stand on. If your a hot mess trying to tell me what to do—your nuts, bonkers, mad—I don’t even want to hear your spiel. Get yourself together first then lets assess.

This isn’t limited to my own parents. It’s not that I’m still holding on to the resentment of the past for essentially raising myself as a teen. But I can’t understand where mostly my father gets off trying to tell…
