For Those Left Behind {And What 13 Reasons Why Doesn't Tell You About Suicide}

There are some experiences in life that we wish were never part of our story. For me, it’s the experience of being the one left behind. I don’t mean left in the middle of a department store as a child. Or left behind in some race. Or left behind from participating in some amazing adventure. I mean left behind to live a life in the wake of suicide. Multiple suicides. Yes, more than one. Being the one left behind is a part of my life story that I’ve never publicly shared before.

A Gift from the Heart for Graduates

The graduation announcements are beginning to arrive on my desk as my students joyfully proclaim to the world that they only have a few more weeks of high school left.

Be Vulnerable, Be Brave

Be Vulnerable, Be Brave

My life has not played out the way I imagined it would. When I planned summers, life brought winters. When I thought I was ready for brighter times, life gave me a mountain to climb.

Breaking Up with Social and Screens

Breaking Up with Social and Screens

Imagine what it would look like if we broke the bondage that has become of social media and screens. Oh yes, bondage, because we are indeed addicted. After all the research and in-real-life experimentation I’ve experienced, I’m certain that the dopamine loop has us in it’s grip and we’re enslaved to our screens. We’re addicted, like a drug user or alcoholic, but we don’t know the warning signs. We don’t know we need treatment.
