It’s Hard to Be Humble

This blog was written by Adults Sexually Abused by Priests (ASAP)

That’s right. That’s all I’m going to say about that. I’m trying to avoid anything political because I think it was just about to make me ill as it has been so in your face along with being kind of locked up in the house. Kind of like how those guards I read about punished prisoners by putting them in a room where they played the “Baby Shark” song over and over again for hours at a time.


I Wanna Be Elected

I like to use song titles in my blogs and this one is a really old one by Alice Cooper. But I guess it fits this week.

So I will venture into politics a bit but not so much as to try to be offensive. We have an election tomorrow.

Life just keeps getting crazier. Or maybe it just seems that way because we have so many more images coming our way in so many forms.


Who Are You?

Last week, most people said they still practice all of the rituals of the Catholic Church.

So, who are you really? When I was a child, I remember one night being in bed asking myself where I existed. What made me, “me”?

In Memory of Jerry Arnal

A longtime SNAP Leader, supporter, and friend passed away this week. Jerry Arnal supported survivors in the Youngstown, OH area and was a warm and kind presence to all who knew him. We are saddened to lose Jerry and our hearts go out to all of his loved ones during this challenging time.


Getting to Know You

Last week’s poll showed that the majority of people if they could, would go back to the year 1970 knowing what they know now. Wow, the mistakes I could have avoided if I could back.


Hold the Mayo

First a review of last week’s poll. What do most of you do to let go of worry? Most of you said you either pray or you talk to a friend or therapist. Curiously, nobody said they drink or smoke cigarettes. Just so you know, I can’t see who answers the poll or what anyone says….just the results. Okay, just saying….I don’t judge.

I want to talk about the second step I came across when dealing with a Narcissist. The Compliment Sandwich. Has anyone not heard of this?
