Expressing Love to Someone Who is Suicidal

expressing love to the suicidal

Suicidal people are humans too, needing love from other humans. Taking away some of the stigmas of suicide and viewing the suicidal as precious lovely people, real people, we can express unconditional love. Instead of ONLY passing off the difficult situation to someone else’s responsibility, can we also look at our own resources that we can give to those during a crisis.

Food Fights, Love Food Not War

food fights = raise stress, raise cortisol, lower digestion, lower nutrient assimilation; love food not war

How many times have we gotten into a food fight with ourselves or others? We will never always agree on what we “should” eat. The more we fight about it, the more stressed we get. The more stressed we get, our hormones get disrupted, our nutrient level decreases and stay stuck in chronic illness. Love on people and real food, not war.
