    MyNDTALK - Is His America Your America - S.L.Young

    The day I was born my mom looked at me with pride to determine if had safely arrived. In response to my mother’s request to determine if I was okay, she heard someone say, “It’s a boy,” which gave me a label on my first day. As I navigated the neighborhoods away from my house, I was clearly in areas in which I clearly stood out. It was in these moments I learned that I would be described by a label regardless of the things that I brought to the table. The words that are often used don’t describe who I am, but these types of descriptors are sometimes negatively attached to me instead of the positive man that I am." S.L.Young , Huffington Post 2014

    MyNDTALK  -  Loving in the Grown Zone - Alfred A Edmond

    Feeling stuck in your relationship? Want to learn how to transition from ho -hum to healthy and grown? Too many people have surrendered to the belief that dissatisfaction, neglect, infidelity, abuse, disrespect, conflict, exploitation and betrayal are natural, normal, and unavoidable characteristics of romantic relationships and even marriage. Alfred A. Edmond Jr. and Zara Green say we are presented with a choice: relationships that  don't last and relationships that do - as long as participants are willing to endure suffering, mistreatment, and victimization, usually at the hands of one another. Alfred A Edmond, Jr. co-author of Loving in the Grown Zone offers a rejection of that thinking. ... Relationships are not a matter of luck or chance, but of intention, learnable skills and practices, and commitment to personal growth.
