Not The, but A Truth About Anger

As I get older and hopefully more emotionally mature, things like ‘THE truth trigger me’. As Khalil Gibran said ‘do not say I have found the truth, instead say I have found A truth’ — that’s the reason for the change in the title. Now, enjoy the article…

Gabor Mate on Dear Gabby

The ROOT CAUSE Of Trauma & Why You FEEL LOST In Life

Dr. Maté generously shares his deep understanding of childhood trauma, vulnerability, grief, and emotional distress. He explains what real trauma is and how time doesn’t necessarily lead to healing, how vulnerability is ingrained in us since we are young and the importance of these formative years to mold our emotional health, and the societal expectations we always try to meet but have never truly given us real fulfillment. We also exchange thoughts on dealing with grief, how we struggle to identify with the people we look up to, and how childhood experience varies for every child even when they are raised in a similar environment.

The One Thing #recommended

The one book that had the biggest impact on my year last year was The ONE Thing. Funny thing is that the book had been on my shelf for at least three years and I never read it. As the woman said ‘when the student is ready the teacher appears’…

The book resonated with me — I had already been thinking along those lines most of my life — and it reorganized my thinking in ways that had a big impact, especially at work!

One of the most important concepts in the book is this: a domino can knock over a domino 1.5x its size…

Resolve to read this book and apply its lessons this year!
