Unexpected Social Connections

Unexpected Social Connections

by Keith Ruffner November 26, 2022 2 min read

When given the opportunity to make a connection with others, do you embrace the situation and let the conversation grow organically, or do you have a few things in mind to talk about when you meet someone for the first time?

What inspires you? Do you inspire others?

What inspires you? Do you inspire others?

by Keith Ruffner November 24, 2022 4 min read

I’ve always thought about “inspiration” in the most common terms: The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative, but there is another definition that I found fascinating - inhalation; the drawing in of breath.  I am inspired to take a deep breath and express new thoughts by creating art and writing that inspires others. Thanks to our new friend Joshua, for sharing your amazing art, thoughtful approach, and for being an inspiration to us!

Sweet Bunny Morphing into Green Hulk

Do you “Hulk out” when you’re hurting or angry?

by Keith Ruffner November 13, 2022 2 min read

We all do sometimes, even storybook bunnies. There is an easy explanation for this over-reactivity. Your brain was simply not prepared for the threat it perceived in that moment. And feelings easily overtake logic in a moment we think we’re in danger. We loved when Dr. Jacob Ham suggested that we may want to learn from “the Hulk” when that happens.

The Magic of Words

The Magic of Words

by Keith Ruffner November 07, 2022 3 min read 1 Comment

Do you think about words, the definition, the etymology, and the meaning to the local people using them?  We can write our own story, making us the adventurous hero, an astronaut, a race car driver, a fashion designer, or anything we can dream. Writing words can give us power by helping us to understand ourselves, our feelings, and what we would like to do with our lives.

Healing Is A Slow Process

Healing Is A Slow Process

by Keith Ruffner December 15, 2021 4 min read

I'm still early in the recovery and investigation phase of my suffering. It's a much slower process than I'd like. I underestimated how hard it would be on me and those around me. While I haven't resolved everything, I am making substantial progress.

Investigating Chronic Pain

Investigating Chronic Pain

by Keith Ruffner November 22, 2021 4 min read

I am still early in the investigation stage of my chronic emotional pain. While remaining gentle toward myself, I have identified some maladaptive coping mechanisms that I used to deal with my depression and anxiety. I now have hope and a path forward to a life of happiness and ease.

Allowing Chronic Emotional Pain

Allowing Chronic Emotional Pain

by Keith Ruffner November 15, 2021 3 min read

My previous blog on Acknowledging Pain was intentionally vague regarding whether my suffering is from physical or emotional pain. My chronic pain is emotional. So what's next in treating my chronic emotional pain?

Acknowledging Chronic Pain

by Keith Ruffner November 11, 2021 3 min read 1 Comment

I suffer from chronic pain but can't remember when it first started or when it progressed from an occasional painful moment to a chronic, continual pain with only brief periods of relief.  

This is the beginning of my journey for help.

"No One Cares – Work Harder”

"No One Cares – Work Harder”

by Keith Ruffner May 17, 2021 5 min read

Is the idea of “no one cares” part of our cultural history of ignoring and suppressing feelings? Is the idea of “work harder” part of our country’s history of Rugged Individualism? From wherever “no one cares – work harder” comes, it’s certainly not something I want to embrace. And, more importantly, it’s something I want to speak out against now that I know better.

Garbage In = Garbage Out

Garbage In = Garbage Out

by Keith Ruffner November 18, 2020 4 min read

There has been a lot of discussion on the responsibility of social media platforms to take responsibility for the content posted by their users.  The Constitution provides some regulation on free speech and there are limits, but is it the responsibility of the social media platform to act as the free speech police?  Should a social media platform allow users to post anything, regardless of the content?

 

What if the users were to accept the responsibility for what they post AND for what they read?

Just Because You Can, Doesn’t Mean You Should

Just Because You Can, Doesn’t Mean You Should

by Keith Ruffner September 24, 2020 5 min read

Do you live your life based on the doctrine of “I have the right, so I should,” or do you live a more thoughtful life by considering how your actions affect others? 

What does it really mean to have the “right” to do something and who decides what our “rights” are within our societal group?  Are we given greater rights if we share the same gender, ethnicity, level of education, economic class, and ideas as those who determine our rights?
