It is very hard for you to notice the need for change, initiate that change, or even sustain that change if everything and everybody around you is signaling that: they don’t care if you try to change, or that they don’t notice the need/your need for change or that they won’t participate in supporting your change.

You can read all the self-help books and watch all the self-help videos, and finally be convinced and finally have a strategy for your helping yourself make a needed change. Unfortunately, your friends, coworkers, relatives, and loved ones have not been on the same journey with you. Often, you will need their encouragement and theirContinue reading “It is very hard for you to notice the need for change, initiate that change, or even sustain that change if everything and everybody around you is signaling that: they don’t care if you try to change, or that they don’t notice the need/your need for change or that they won’t participate in supporting your change.”

A recent text to one of my dearest friends, regarding a very difficult time with a new diagnosis…

Your care is in very competent and kind hands. You are surrounded by a loving family. Some of life’s problems become fully resolved, never to return again. The majority of the problems that we face require a mixture of trade-offs and adjustments to living with limitations that we don’t like, but are made easier withContinue reading “A recent text to one of my dearest friends, regarding a very difficult time with a new diagnosis…”

It’s OK to love someone who is hurtful and toxic, while keeping them at an arm’s length. This includes family and friends, as well as former business and romantic partners.

Being a good person does not include standing by, silently, while being endangered, shamed, embarrassed, controlled, or abused. Charles Tadros, M.D. September 3, 2022 Saint Louis, Missouri

BENEFITS OF COOKING OUR OWN FOOD…

We understand and appreciate: organization, planning, storage, space utilization, assistants, assistance, tools, work flow, completeness, exactness, freestyling, waste, cost, quality, time, timing, and coordination. We are more likely to appreciate the efforts and foods prepared by others. We may consider growing some of our own foods (even a simple windowsill herb garden). We appreciate theContinue reading “BENEFITS OF COOKING OUR OWN FOOD…”

OCCASIONALLY, WHEN I AM LISTENING TO A YOUNG MAN OR WOMAN WHO IS LOST IN LIFE, WHO DOES NOT SEEM TO FIT IN WITH THEIR FAMILY, FRIENDS, JOB, CAREER, OR TOWN, I REMIND THEM THAT FOR A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS AND LESS THAN 5 HOURS ON AN AIRPLANE, THEY CAN MOVE TO ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES WHERE THEY MAY FIND A BETTER SOCIAL FIT, VARIED JOB AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES, MORE LIFE SATISFACTION, AND, POSSIBLY, INTERNAL PEACE AND HAPPINESS.

ISSUES WHICH DISTRACT FROM THE FACT THAT OUR ADDICTED, ANXIOUS, OBSESSED, ADHD’D, TRAUMATIZED, OR DEPRESSED BRAINS (which we need to trust) ARE AT THE ROOT OF OUR MOST SEVERE PROBLEMS: PERSONALITY DIFFICULTIES, FAMILY STRIFE, SOCIAL TENSIONS, WORK RELATED CONFLICTS, FINANCIAL TROUBLES, AND LEGAL ISSUES.

MODERN MEDICATIONS, AND OTHER TECHNIQUES FOR TREATING MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS, ARE LIFE-SAVING FOR THE MOST SEVERE AND DISABLING CASES. THESE SAME MEDICATIONS ARE TOO LIMITED IN THEIR BENEFITS WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR ABILITY TO HELP, IF NOT COMBINED WITH A HOLISTIC APPROACH (exercise, diet, sleep, friendships, family, hope, goals, spirituality, relief from addictions, microbiome, epigenetics) IN ORDER TO RELIEVE ONE’S SUFFERING.

IF GIVEN A CHANCE TO HAVE AN OPEN AND HONEST DISCUSSION, MANY OF US WOULD NOT SIT DOWN WITH A THERAPIST ALONG WITH THE FRIENDS, FAMILY OR LOVED ONES WHO HAVE HURT US.
