’ 13 Reasons Why ’ : Critique by a Recovered Depressive
I almost had the same fate as Hannah Baker. After having teetered so close to the edge of death, I am surprised a lot of days that I am actually still alive, that I didn’t perish in the bathtub when I dropped the hairdryer into the water. I finished watching the second season of 13 Reasons Why last night, and this show has stirred up a storm of thoughts and emotions for me, given my experience, so I thought I might contribute to the conversation that this show is igniting.  I first started having suicidal thoughts when I was a junior in high school. As I drove home from school, I often thought about swerving in...

Why Do We Worry So Much?
Worrying seems to be commonplace for many, if not, most people today. The question I often asked myself is, why do people worry? A little worry is probably necessary in order to motivate us to do things that need to get done. On the other hand, excessive worry tends to keep us incapacitated to the point of indecision and inaction. In asking myself the question of Why Do People Worry? I draw upon my 25+ years of experience in working with clients, as well as personal experience. My conclusion is that people worry in an attempt to solve their problems. Given this, why is that worry actually hinders us from solving the very p...
