Living is a frightening experience at times. When things don’t our way, we may enter into a period of self denial and create a fictitious account of reality. People addicted to alcohol will deny they don’t have a drinking problem and adamantly claim they can handle their drinking. Nothing can shake them from this illusion until they hit rock bottom or worse. It takes courage to face the truth about a situation. We create illusions when we can’t accept reality. One has to admit he/she is wrong and desires to let go of their false illusions.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
