We’re Not All Extroverts — and Introverts Aren’t Abnormal

posted by Carolyn Henderson

We live in a society fascinated by psychology, and every week there’s a new mental aberration to add to the list, buy medication for, and wonder if we have. And while actual diseases and issues exist, there are undeniably natural […]

High Anxiety: Conquer Your Fear

posted by Carolyn Henderson

To depict me as High Anxiety is like describing coffee as black. Yep, it is, and yes, I am. But the beauty of coffee is that when you add milk, sugar, flavorings, whipped cream and sprinkles, these elements mitigate the […]

When You’re Not as Happy as You Wish You Were

posted by Carolyn Henderson

It’s not wrong, unusual, or evil to want to be happy. If it weren’t such a basic human drive, the pursuit of it wouldn’t have been mentioned as an inalienable right in the U.S. Declaration of Independence. And yes, my […]

Is It So Bad to Be a Lone-Wolf Christian?
Self-defense is a good thing to know -- many women wish we possessed enough simple martial arts skill that we could tumble an assailant to the ground, whimpering. But physically defending ourselves isn't the only arena of importance, and even if we can't find, or afford, a class on Jackie C
