Shame has a way of convincing us that our baggage is ours to carry and that our problems are ours to fix. 

The threshold for taking accountability for when you're in the wrong, in a situation you're embarrassed for, or just straight up ashamed to admit to is often an un...


They say millennials aren't buying houses because they'd rather spend 20 dollars on avocado toast. Now you don't have to. This is better than any avocado toast I have ever paid for and I fed my family for 14 dollars; thanks to thrifty grocery shopping and my new found...
