Give Me Space – Adam Factor 16, Single Men

“I’m fairly sure that my cute next door neighbor thinks I’m a stalker. She wrote it on Facebook, Twitter, and even in both of her diaries.” unknown


Personal space is personal for a reason. Aside from a brief period when a relationship first starts (remember sharing a chair, or eating off the same plate?), most people have a set space requirement that will revert to normal in time. There are howe...

“Most of us are unaware of how important vocabulary is to emotion skills. As we’ve seen, using many different words implies valuable distinctions—that we’re not always simply angry but are sometimes annoyed, irritated, frustrated, disgusted, aggravated, and so on. If we can’t discern the difference, it suggests that we can’t understand it either. It’s the difference between a rich emotional life and an impoverished one. Your child will inherit the one you provide.”
Marc Brackett, Permission to Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves, and Our Society Thrive

“In one study, sixth graders who went five days without glancing at a smartphone or other digital screen were better at reading emotions than their peers from the same school who continued to spend hours each day looking at their phones, tablets, computers, and so on.”
Marc Brackett, Permission to Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves, and Our Society Thrive

“It’s possible to distract ourselves to such a degree that we avoid dealing with anything difficult—even when our lives would be improved by facing reality and doing something about it.”
Marc Brackett, Permission to Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves, and Our Society Thrive

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”
G.K. Chesterton

message 1: by Nancy

Nancy thanks for the friend invitation, Marc. The Secret discussion is not the first one I have participated in that has spawned crazed, rude responses with foul language. I am constantly amazed & saddened by those who have such lousy attitudes. One would hope that you could engage in a civilized discussion even if you disagree. I appreciated your attempts to steer the discussion back to "normalcy"!
