Reliving the youth “trauma”

In my post When adults don’t think about consequences I talk about the hell of my youthful years: Sports day. This event was many more times traumatic in the Summer than the Winter.

“Just” pick up that phone

Don't you just hate it when someone is pushing into "just" pick up the phone, call the person you need and get that answer real quick? If you do, keep on reading. I experienced something much worse today. If you're not, don't ever advice someone to "just" do it. For a long, anxiety got the … Continue reading “Just” pick up that phone
