    Quote of the Day:

    “Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength—carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”

    – Corrie Ten Boom

    Acknowledge your feelings.

    Focus on what you can control.

    Go at your own pace.

    Stay informed.

    S10E5: Calling Out or Calling In? A Conversation about Cancel Culture

    Who are the people we can work with? Who are the ones we need to workaround? When we identify what is within our control, we can expend our energy in ways that will capitalize on our efforts to make a change. Today Dr. Dom and Terri talk about the origins of cancel culture, the difference between calling out or calling in, and when to use which strategy.



    Quote of the Day:

    "Some people you can work with and some people you can workaround. "

    Loretta Ross



    Tips for determining whether to call out or call in:


    Does the offense break any laws?

    Does the offense violate your boundaries or values?

    Will you or someone you love be hurt by continued association?

Crying at work

Y’all had me crying at work today on season 8 talking about daddy issues. I have had daddy issues and related to when someone mentioned that they seek male attention because they didn’t get it from their father. It’s a lot. But I appreciate you ladies.
