My brother is 27. He has been working as a forklift operator in a warehouse. Despite family support and encouragement he hasn't done much with his life since he finished highschool. He is dating a 32yo woman for a year now. She is single, very attractive, no kids and works in upper management in a corporation and compares to him she is financially successful.
This relationship seems unsustainable and I am worried about her true intentions, because of their status incompatibility. I would appreciate your thoughts on that.
Recently you said that one of your listeners has a clownish relationship with themselves because they used the expression 'barf my thoughts out'. I have a similar issue of not taking myself seriously, not approaching life with all the respect that it requires. I don't do it all the time, but have a tendency to downplay the importance of my thoughts, in public and to myself, to laugh at things that aren't funny (and to laugh precisely because these things are very serious). Do you have any advice on how to break out of this pattern?
Why is going to the strip club worse than watching pornography? They seem to be equally morally abhorrent, except one is sort of out in the open and one is usually kept hidden.
Do you have any advice on helping motivate my almost 6 year old to do her schoolwork? We homeschool and she struggles to pay attention to her memory work (she is supposed to memorize two verses a week) and to do her arithmetic practice (it's 100 addition and subtraction problems everyday). Everything else she gets done without issue. Maybe this is just how it is, but if you have any advice for me, it would be much appreciated! Thank you
What do you think of Daniel Mackler's claim that one ought not have children until they are perfectly healed. Is such a thing even remotely possible?
