Adolescent Depression and the One-Inch Picture Frame

Consider the idea that you are in one picture frame of your life right now–that’s just it, one frame. And while that frame might look overwhelming or render you numb or any other negative emotion…it is simply one frame. The frame, however unbearable, WILL pass.

Small Talk: Benefit or Risk?

Mathias Mehl’s findings regarding our tendency to find happiness through small talk may be true, but if that small talk signals another to lay down on the metaphorical Freudian couch, perhaps we need to refrain from trivial banter with people holding sharp objects.
