“I find that if I did not laugh at the insanity that others try to thrust onto me, I would just cry. And my tears, once they started to flow……………WOULD……………..NOT………………STOP!” — Xavier

Note: I have written a book called “Empathic Warriors Survival Stories: Not Your Ordinary Empath”. If you are looking for inspiration and motivation to leave the narcissist in your life, then these 8 great stories will help give you the strength you need to leave.

This Is Why I Laugh: Why I Created “Laughing At Narcs”

(Note: This Is A Very Long Post — But I Want You To Understand Why I Laugh and Why You Should As…


“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” — Dr. King

There is something to be said about persistence. Persistence FAR OUTWEIGHS genius.

Genius, although a rarity and a gift to the world, is not as powerful as persistence.

This election has truly proven this!

Joe Biden, the Projected Vice President-Elect, is not quite as bombastic as Trump, not quite as charismatic as Trump, and not as oratorically gifted as Trump —…

Being a parent is perhaps one of the greatest accomplishments and jobs that a person can ever achieve or have in life.

It is an honor to be a father to your child. To be that protector, that guide, that role model for your kids.

It is an honor to be a mother. To be that warmth, that assuring unconditional love that never wanes, that healer.

Being a parent is the best job a person can ever have, as you are helping to guide a human experience in this crazy existence that we call life.

Unfortunately, there are some people…

Is it possible to make a narcissist regret leaving you, discarding you, and hurting you?

You may be surprised, and pleasantly surprised, I might add, to know that it is possible to make a narcissist regret all of the above.

Now, before you get super excited, their regret is not the same as normal people.

They will regret losing us, but they will regret losing you ONLY if they see you are prosperous after leaving them.

Narcissists know how to berate, belittle, and argue their pants off. They know how to put someone down and make that person feel like they are less than they really are.

Narcs are masters of verbal abuse. It is a craft that they have mastered.

They can be the ones who do wrong and be able, through the power of complaining and blameshifting, get us to think we are the ones who did wrong.

Understand Narcs argue NOT to justify their actions — but to get us to take responsibility for their wrong doing.

It can feel very tempting to…


I doubt it is!

Note: Before I begin. I want to make this known that…I AM NOT A PSYCHOLOGIST. This is just MY view of the world. Please do your own due diligence in regards to researching some of the mental illnesses that I will post below. And feel free to correct me on anything that I may have missed or misunderstood. Thank you in advance!

On January 20th, 2009, Barack Obama became the first African American President. This, of course, was truly a most historic moment in American history.

America, despite being called the “land of the free”, had for centuries enslaved its…

Quick little rant!

For the life of me, I will never understand how anyone can be jealous and have so much hatred for a person living THEIR lives the way that they want to.

What is so wrong with a man pursuing and achieving his goal?

What is so wrong that a girl is prettier than you?

What is so wrong with two people falling in love?

What is so wrong with people being happy and NOT at your expense?

What is so wrong with people LIVING?

Jealousy is easily one of the worst emotions a person can have. You…

That stunned, dazed, and “I can’t believe it” look is priceless to me. It will never get old.

I pride myself on many things that I have done in my life. I consider myself, and many of those close to me would also attest to this, a very honest, hardworking, trustworthy, and down-to-earth guy.

I don’t see a need to wear a mask. I don’t see a need to be accepted by people. And I don’t feel a need to NEED OTHERS.

And I think this last one is what causes so much hatred for me from many people I…

“Up your game my guys! Up your game!”

The mark of a man is his ability to step into the unknown, look into the dark, cold abyss, and basically step out of his comfort zone.

Men are brave.

We are courageous. We are these traits made manifest in what we call the human body/ human experience.

This is not to say that women cannot be brave because they most certainly can and are.

But the hallmark trait of men is that we are more prone to being brave and courageous.

It is men that have gone and continue to go…

I refuse to allow the negative people in life to tear me down. I will not be defeated by life, life will be defeated by my will to be happy.
