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

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

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?

The Past No Longer Exists, And The Future Is Not Yet Here

The Past No Longer Exists, And The Future Is Not Yet Here

by Keith Ruffner August 13, 2020 4 min read

Life is uncertain and there is an impermanence to everything.  There is an impermanence to a river, as it can only be crossed one time before it changes.  As the water flows, the river is ever-changing, and each crossing is through new water – there is no permanence to the river.

Ethics, Morals, and Values - What is the Difference?

Ethics, Morals, and Values - What is the Difference?

by Keith Ruffner July 17, 2020 6 min read

Are morals, values, and ethics essentially the same with the defining factor being subjective to the person in question?  Do the standards and principles that a person uses to determine their own behavior depend on the situation?  Does our need for self-preservation override our morals, values, and ethics so we justify our behavior to align with what we think is acceptable to our peer groups?

Your Time, Your Priorities, Your Choice

by Beth Wuller May 05, 2020 3 min read 2 Comments

When was the last time someone said to you, “So much has happened, I just didn’t have time to get to that yet...”? No matter what the actual time delay, they are sending you a clear message about their priorities, personal time management and generally how they approach life.

Feelings and Emotions - Do I Have A Blown Fuse?

Feelings and Emotions - Do I Have A Blown Fuse?

by Keith Ruffner March 30, 2020 4 min read

I confess…. I didn’t exactly think of three things to explore about myself in the next 12 months like I had intended on the International Day of Happiness.  I had one reoccurring thought on feelings and emotions and if there is anything at the top of a list for my own self-improvement it would be improving upon my ability to express feelings and emotions with words.  What if feelings are being impacted by the potential response of others?
