  • GINGER: Santa's way better than Snow White

    My 5-year-old daughter is going through that stage of trying to discern the truth about Santa.
    Listening to her speculate has become a source of entertainment around our household.
    Her logic and reasoning reminds me of, well, myself actually.
    It’s all over the place, and depending on what thought pops into her head at any given moment, it can entirely change her mood.

  • BOB MUELLER: Appreciate yourself

    I know a super volunteer for many organizations who works really hard at being generous and helpful. If anyone has a need, she goes out of her way to try to fill it. The people in her life greatly appreciate her.

    But ironically she has expressed to me that she feels completely isolated and unappreciated. At times she can fall into a depression, feeling that she gives so much but gets nothing in return.

    I told her I think I know why she’s so stuck. It is difficult for her to receive any kind of appreciation or praise. She’s a master at deflection.
