CHEERS TO PASSIONATELY
There is no rule book in dealing with
feelings. Yet, they affect every area of
our lives- Work, relationships, passionate
pursuits- all of it.
as a cultural behavior scientist and Dr. of psychology, my work has reached millions of people all over the world. I’ve learned we can’t always alter the external situations surrounding us, we can , however, level out the internal playing field.
