We all know how it goes. You spend the night in bed sleeping, maybe nothing too deep, maybe you wake up once or twice nothing too unusual, but you aren’t any more rested in the morning, so you end up in an energy chase throughout the day only to wash, rinse, repeat the same cycle again.

But that’s not to say we haven’t made some progress. The public’s reaction to the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard case is a sign of the improvement we have made in debunking age-old social constructs that men held on to.Read More

Anger is a natural emotion that everyone experiences. But even problematic anger isn’t always abusive. If you struggle to control your anger or you feel angry more than you’d like, you might want to seek support and change, but this doesn’t make you an abusive person.
