life advice for a graduate
As you walk away from your books and studies and move into the bright light of a new reality, your fears, anxieties and concerns will soon become distant friends. Time will quickly march on, and before you know it, you will be in the throws of life and all it has to offer. It's most important to take a moment and reflect on all that you have accomplished.

Yet, if someone were to ask you, ?How are things?? or, ?What?s new?? the last thing you would do is reply with ?I?ve just been abused and I?m not sure what to do.?  Denial, the ever-powerful emotion that is often the coping tool of choice, keeps us in place and wondering what to do next. I loved pretending all was well when I was married to Darth Vader.  I was ashamed and humiliated to be in such a difficult position, thinking that...
