To Thy Own Self Be True

I hope that this series on communication has been as enlightening for you as it has for me.

It’s Iike the movie Collateral Beauty starting Will Smith (this was a great film by the way).  Three of his friends embarked on saving their firm, by proving that Will’s character had become an unfit partner after the loss of his daughter. They did so by hiring three abstractions, disguised as actors, to pose as the three entities that Will had been writing to- Time, Love, and Death.  Through their mission to help their friend help himself, they all were assisted by these beings in the areas that they most needed.

What’s Stopping Us From Letting Go?

So it’s been a while, I know.  My apologies.  It’s a little thing called writer’s block.  I suffered from a mild case, but no worries,  I’m back up and at’em.

What pulled me out of my horrible condition was one particular question asked by boo-bae,  “Why did you stay in your last relationship?”.  I had no answer.  Later, however, I thought about it and I posed the question to myself, “Why did you stay as long as you did?”
