    This is getting out of hand

    Mental health is important. It was important in the past (although not prioritized too much), it is important in the present (despite the current crisis) and it will continue to be important in the future. In our current landscape, we are trying to further the mental health of all people to ensure that the future […]

    We need more safe spaces!

    Sometimes it can be hard for people to open up about what is troubling them. Society puts the onus on us to be the very best version of ourselves. Anything less is seen as not good enough to be displayed and this can push people to ignore trauma and push their mental health aside to […]

    Boundaries

    “That is making me uncomfortable, would you mind stopping?” “It makes me feel uncomfortable that you post these kinds of things as my partner” “I don’t want to go to that event” “I am not comfortable with PDA” “I need space, please?” As a human being, you MUST be comfortable with setting boundaries. We live […]

    Men’s Mental Health Rant

    This might offend someone somewhere and I can’t find the patience to care at this point. For years, we have heard talks and complaints about the “patriarchy” and how it has affected women’s rights and how women are viewed and treated. Almost anywhere you look, you can find women empowerment or resources to help women […]

    We need to stop validating the wrong things

    Social media will forever be one of my greatest enemies. I feel like it is continuing to be a very negative addition to our lives, no matter how much gain can be found within the algorithms. Superficial ideas and ways of thinking continue to pervade almost every site and I am almost losing hope that […]

    We are one of many

    We are all individuals. We go through life and we try to make an impact on the world in our own special ways. We are the main characters of our story and we are still writing our stories. We are naturally self-centered creatures due to the machinations of life as human beings. All of this […]

    Dreams

    What exactly are dreams? According to google, dreams are a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep. What deeper meaning can they hold for us? I have been thinking about this for a while now and I find it funny how they operate. They can contain images and scenarios […]

    Infidelity Is Over Normalized in Society

    There is nothing funny or entertaining about cheating on someone. Its heart wrenching to be cheated on. The pain is immeasurable and you are forever changed, no matter which side you fall on. I can’t begin to comprehend how people can do this to people and continue to live life all the same. Human relationships […]

  • Fatherhood

    Fatherhood

    Being a dad is great. It’s an experience that I can’t adequately describe in words. It is life changing. Living life for yourself is one thing, but knowing there is someone (or people) that need you to survive and look towards you for encouragement and protection is a feeling like no other. These little people […]

    You know what grinds my gears?

    A city that seems so far gone, it’s almost hard to fathom where it went. A mayor that seems so out of tune with the populace. A mayor that has big corporations handling him like a puppet on strings. A mayor that has only proven that money and the bottom line are the only things […]
