Border Security An Open Discussion

Oh the border security! Aren’t we all hot under collars about this topic? We can go ahead, but not lose our cool. Navigate to the next page for additional content.

The word border security often brings to mind tall walls, fences and tough policies. But border security involves more than that.

Why does border security matter? Uninvited Guests can cause issues. We are talking about serious matters, such as drug trafficking and disease spreading across borders. When we pay attention to who is moving around, we can sleep easier at night.

But it is not only about keeping people away. It can also bring up environmental and moral issues.

If we were to go high-tech, would that be a good idea? Drones hovering above places where humans can’t reach, or fancy gadgets checking each person’s identity? Circuits win here over code and human flesh.

Keep in mind that not everyone crosses the border looking for trouble. Most people do so in order to escape violence and find a new home. In what way can we balance our compassion with safety, keeping the doors as wide as they can be? Use caution when pouring maple syrup on pancakes.

It is important to remember that no nation (except for the real ones) has a “island”. Therefore, going at it alone will not be effective. The power of working with your neighbor in this ongoing battle is immense.

In the end, improving border security does not only mean fencing and spy gear. You need to use smart strategies to consider the reasons people are trying to get through your door.

It takes patience, creativity and humor to overcome this monster. Remember, tackling this beast requires patience, creativity, and maybe a dash of humor because sometimes you’ve got to laugh to keep from crying–or walking a tightrope while juggling flaming torches…in a windstorm…blindfolded. Easy peasy. You’re on your way to smoother seas!

Marriage and Family Therapy: A Lifesaver for Your Relationship


Marriage and Family Therapists may be the unsung heroes of your life.

Theraputic treatment is for those who are in the most difficult situations, right? Think about it. Marriage counselors have safety pins, scotchtape, and other emergency supplies on hand.

These therapists have a relationship whispering style. They help people see the world through someone else’s eyes.

You are asked to organize a family outing where everyone can pick their favorite activity. This may sound easy, but activities like this can help repair bridges that have been weakened over time by neglect and misunderstanding.

Not everyone will enjoy sharing their feelings. It’s not easy for everyone to sit through family meetings. The path to success can look like my grandmother’s knitting pattern. That’s okay. The beauty of learning and growing as a family, is that it can happen together.

If you’re on the fence, remember that bravery doesn’t just mean facing scary monsters. Sometimes you have to be brave when you want to run away.

You might need some help if you feel that your family meals are more like scenes in reality shows or navigating a minefield with your spouse feels like you’re blindfolded. You could find that a marriage and family therapist is the best way to restore harmony and good feelings.

If you want to make your life easier, stop to fix some things. Let’s celebrate smoother sailing.

Couples therapy and family therapy: The rollercoaster ride

We’ll dive into the messy, confusing world of family and couples therapy. This is the emotional equivalent to removing Christmas lights. You’ll feel better for it. For detailed information, go here to visit our website.

Family counseling doesn’t mean sitting in circles, airing dirty laundry while someone takes notes. This is more like a detective’s game, where everyone is the detective and the mystery.

Couples counseling? Oh, boy! Another rollercoaster. Imagine dancing with a partner. At first, you step on each other’s toes – ouch! With some help, eventually you will start to dance together. Couples counseling aims to help you dance smoothly together, no matter what the music is.

The therapies are great because they reveal what I call “family lore” – the stories that a couple, or family, tells to each other about themselves. Some of the stories that you tell yourself can be positive like “We made it through,” but they can also hold you back. The therapy is when a friend says, “Hey! Have you ever considered looking at this in a different way?” These chains begin to unravel.

I understand the feeling of sharing personal information with someone that you do not know. It’s like singing in public. This can be uncomfortable, and it makes you vulnerable. It’s OK to be embarrassed. It is for this reason that therapists have been trained to minimize pain. Imagine it as a nice cup of coffee with a friend who you can trust and will not reveal your secrets.

In the same way, today’s therapy is quite innovative. No longer just couches and tissues. You can rewrite (literally) your story and put the focus on solving problems instead. It’s the same as fixing a leaky faucet without worrying about who caused it.

Culture has played a major role in therapy. Realizing that Sunday dinners aren’t just about food. Her Sunday dinners are her way of maintaining a strong bond between generations.

The technology also allows you to stay at home unless it is absolutely necessary. This is perfect for when it seems impossible to climb Mount Everest and put on real pants.

Why bother? Relationships are important. They can be difficult, but also rewarding.

If you choose therapy, it doesn’t mean that you are a failure. You’re showing that you are willing to fight and work for a positive outcome. You can choose to say “Yes!” It’s a choice to say “Yes!” “Yes!” to connection instead of loneliness.

What is the difference between family counseling and couples therapy? Tough? Yes. Does it make any sense? You’ll be able weather any storm that life brings your way.

Remember that making repairs is the best thing you can do on this rollercoaster of a life. We look forward to a more comfortable ride!
