Conquering Anxiety With Love <3

Tonight has been filled with so many soft and sweet--yet difficult to ignore--lustful notions. I am now convinced that a #lovewins mentality can conquer anything. But that's such a hard pill to swallow. It's an overzealous supplement to most. And continually overwhelming to myself.I've never been a firm believer in faith. But everything around me begins to shine.  Sitting back, I begin to relax after lulling my gorgeous wife to sleep with a beautiful passage by our hometown hero, “Mitch Albom.”And although everyone is asleep. You can tell that "family lives here." You may think I'm crazy by telling you only...

Death of a People Pleaser...

I miss a lot of things every day of my life. It's so very exhausting! Like missing socializing. But the ways that I socialized were killing me in the process. I thought that if I accommodated what others felt was "cool" to fit in, I was cool too. But boy was I was wrong. If I didn't get high, if I didn't bring drugs or do them, then I was the biggest outcast in what was supposed to be "my realm." And that isn't reality. Those situations were just defeating any part of myself that allowed people who truly cared about...

Mental Illness is So Relatable

Something I never thought I'd need to deem "Quote-worthy..." but it’s helping me cope. -When people #hurt they need you for EVERYTHING. When I hurt people see me as nothing. I am subjectively invisible... #mentalillness 😔 -Even if you’re by yourself, you’re never truly alone.  🙏 -I may not know exactly what you’re going through but I do know what it feels like to struggle. #pain -Pain is universal. But I’m so glad we are so alike! #unity -Don’t live #life by a setting of defaults. #Flaws are so freaking #beautiful 🙏 -Pain is certain. Suffering is option #PMA #NotAlone  ...

A Steady Flow of Blood...

Hi Substance For You fans – the fitness guy is back; One Rep Marv! This week I was asked by the big bossman to write about my own experience about using blood flow and strategic exercise to possibly reduce some chronic pain. No studies, no scientific facts, this is just my opinion. Brian, the owner here at Substance For You, definitely threw me a curve ball with that last part of the request, but I’m stepping up to the plate regardless and taking a swing at it. A little about myself is that I'm only 31 years old, yet, I've...

I'm So Selfish!

Hell… I’m so sorry! I’ve been so selfish lately and I feel that I’ve done a bad job of controlling it. Or is that my problem too? Controlling too much of the situation! If I knew, we wouldn’t be here. With you mad at me. This just wouldn’t or shouldn’t be happening… right? But I don’t know who I am sometimes when the worst in me comes out! I just lose it!  There’s something to your silence that tells a man, “I screwed up.” But whether or not you’re silent, I know that I shouldn’t be facing the world the...
