Finding the Positive Within the Negative, Reacting, and Responding

In school, you are first taught a lesson and then tested. But in life, you are tested first, and THEN taught a lesson.

Are Scam Victims Stupid?

MY IGNORANT BIASWhen I was a young adult, I would read about various scams and see news stories where they interview scam victims. At the time, I had several biases and believed some strange things.

A Tribute to Old Friends, and How to Make New Friends

It is time for me to have something positive to write about. Today, it’s about those old friends who have hung around for decades, as well as how to potentially find more of those kinds of friends.

Ignoring Red Flags: When Someone Doesn’t Like You
