While staying present is one of the greatest gift

Anger And Irritation Management

By Margarita Nahapetyan Today psychologists do not see anger and irritation as signs of someone's abnormal behavior. It is considered as a normal process that has allowed humans to evolve and adapt. It is not a bad thing in itself, but problems arise if it is not being handled in the right way. Frequent manifestation of nervousness is ridiculous and proves lack of control, reasoning and sensitivity. Anger is a mixture of both emotiona

What's in the Cup? Finding Comfort in the Scriptures

Excerpted from Mending Your Heart in a Broken World: Finding Comfort in the Scriptures By Patsy Clairmont What enthralls us so about a palace? Is it the wealth, the power, the political sway?
