How Can We Help Someone with Suicidal Thoughts?
This post is personal advice and not a professional opinion. Burnout has been worse this year for myself and others.

I am writing an introductory article for some astrological relationship website being tested for popularity. Before this, I had little interest or knowledge in astrology.

Of course, it isn't one size fits all.
My Gratitude and Ingratitude for the Pandemic

During the pandemic, many have struggled as we experience more worry for our personal health and the health of our loved ones. We know those who have lingering effects from COVID-19 and those who have passed away from it. Many argue what measures will truly slow the spread.

Despite all the suffering and negativity, we need to engage our executive brain in positive thinking for our mental and physical health.
