Being in denial and fighting for survival
Have you ever known a sweet and caring person that is receiving treatment they do not deserve? Whether you like to admit or or not I would probably guess that most of you have. Why do so many caring people let themselves be the subject of this treatment? Are they insecure and just think they deserve it or do they decide to deal with the treatment because, they are afraid of conflict? Perhaps they are just in denial of what is happening to them. Even if a person in an abusive situation subconsciously knows what is going on they still do not want to believe it a lot of the time. Do they feel this way because, the fear of being hurt more? We can ask as many questions as we want to but, the truth is we do not know what others are thinking or feeling.
Depression in Daily Life
So many people in our everyday lives suffer from issues we don't even know about. Maybe your coworker lost their parent or sibling and it is destroying them on the inside. Even after such an awful thing happens it is probably still difficult for a person to see they are not doing very well. A person can be extroverted and always be the life of the party but, maybe behind closed doors they cry their eyes out. The coworker you truly know nothing about could be contemplating suicide because of personal issues that cause them to stay awake all night. Yet, this same person continues to go to work every morning and acts as if everything is okay.
Addiction Affects Everyone
Whether it is smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol often in large quantities or using hard drugs addiction affects everyone negatively.

Living With Trauma
Has something ever happened in your life that is always holding a part of you back or making you feel depressed? This sort of this happens to a lot of people and it is nothing to be ashamed of because, in most cases the traumatic events or experiences were not your fault. Moving forward with your life after trauma is an extremely hard thing to do. For some, the trauma causes people to develop depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or anxiety. This can then lead to having to see a therapist to heal the pain and work through the trauma. In this article I will be speaking about traumatic experiences such as domestic abuse and bullying.

Grieving, A look into love and loss
Loss is something everyone deals with. Death is just a common part of life and so is grieving. Loss can happen in many different cases such as, loss of a pet, loss of a child or a miscarriage and loss of a loved one. Loss doesn't always have to be in the case of death either. Loss can also be loss of a friendship, going through a divorce or breakup, or loss of a job. In this article I will be talking about the emotions people go through during the stages of grieving.
