Integrity is All About Self-Confrontation

(4) What makes relationships work & last,communication,improving sex,low desire, how to stay married,problems in relationships,integrity,personal growth

Integrity is the difference between being nice and being good. We live in a world that too easily values nice because nice is easy to do. Good is a whole lot more hard work.

Divorce is an opportunity for people to indulge their intensity & hoarded resentments on to everyone. Normally sane people will shriek when they meet their spouse in the grocery store.

Snowpiercer the Movie & How to Build Character

(0) Snowpiercer,review snow piercer,honor & strength,character development, personal development, science fiction, positive character traits

Snowpiercer is a wonderful “end of the world” movie. We seem to be swimming in apocalyptic films & t.v. shows. I’ve always loved science fiction in books because it was an appreciation learned from my Father. Snowpiercer is extremely dark with a high body count. Snowpiercer is a metaphor for our times. The “have-nots” are… Read More ›
