Let’s play a game:

Your friend Brenda just got fired. Her landlord wants to raise her rent. Her grandma is terminally ill. Her dog just ran away. And worst of all, her boyfriend wants to move to Portland.

Victimhood: It’s About Time

What if I told you that you are both able to change your situation, but you can never stop it from having been what it was?

What do you do with Now?

Well, the question is, where do you need to go? What side of equilibrium are you stuck on? Too much guilt or too much powerlessness? Too much self-blame for the past or too much disempowerment about the future?
