The acceptance of aging! I believe we are all going to a better place with thanks to God. But the process of aging, although with so much gratitude can be difficult. Thank you.

I second this! There are a myriad of generational differences in psychology and behavior to explore. I want very much to NOT frustrate my kids and the younger people in my life the way I find my elders frustrate me. They need my help but at the same time I find them very difficult to help. I definitely don’t want to be that way.
Also, I find that there is an expectation that I am responsible for maintaining the relationship(s) connection(s) when communication works both ways. I know they have different ideas on things based on their ages but it’s no less frustrating having this understanding.

I too would like to know how to overcome negative thoughts about aging. I do not want to be a burden to anyone. Many thanks for all your help.

I would love to know more about how to deal with grief. Ways to work through it in a healthy manner, etc. Thanks!

I would like to know how to teach my children how to deal with their difficult emotions. I try to share all of the things I learn from you 😉 but I was wondering if there was anything specific to tell them or any specific ways of teaching them. Thanks a bunch!

I work with powerful leaders with strong, commanding alpha tendencies and help them soften their communication.
Anything that can contribute to understanding the deep inside them that drives that behavior and managing it would be great.

I am struggling at my 68 years old
I suffer a lot feeling the detachment from sons, nephews and grandchildren, they live in their individuality (their own world) and do not care about the elders emotional needs , how can one cope that?
I understand that today’s generations are almost “virtual-humans” and live in an extremely competitive world, almisr isolated, but where are the emotions and feelings? We didn’t taught them that way.
How to reach them?

How to foster, maintain and repair relationships to be healthy, authentic and help each other grow, and how to avoid getting locked into patterns like blame, dismissal and control.

Thanks for all your great articles
I would love to hear more about how to choose the right thing when you desire the wrong thing e.g. not cheating on spouse….

Do you know anything about EFT?
Someone recommended it to me and it’s amazing that I can feel a negative emotion even a severe negative emotion in my body from the present past or future and just by doing the tapping and repeating certain phrases my mind calmed down and I released the negative emotion. The pain where I was holding it was completely gone.
Please write an article about this amazing technique.

Merry Christmas Nick! I was watching The Man Who Invented Christmas today, and Charles Dickens’ quote “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another” spoke to me. Thank you for helping to lighten the burdens of others (and me too 🙂 ). Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy 2024!

When my dad was in his 80s he would complain that he couldn’t do the things he used to be able to do, and was very upset. I was in my 50s and told him I couldn’t do what I used to be able to do either, we aren’t 20 anymore. Now I am 70 (how that happened I do not know!) and I really get what he meant now. It is so frustrating. An article on how to accept aging which entails loss of physical strength, loss of friends our age to death, loss of a feeling of being safe alone, so many losses. I used to be able to carry a 50 pound bag of dog food from the car to the house. Now I struggle with a 27.5 pound bag. Fortunately I have smaller dogs now. I stopped going to the gym a long time ago as the gyms here were full of people not really working out as well as girls having beauty contests in skimpy outfits. Now I am sorry as I have lost so much muscle mass. I do not know if it is possible to gain any back as I am on a bunch of medications for mental health problems and they make me very tired. An article on learning to accept the effects of aging would be welcomed. A lot of the friends that I used to hang out with and have fun with are now physically impaired from arthritis and other conditions, or are mentally impaired by dementia as well as by isolation. Lots of us have chronic illnesses. As soon as I went on Medicare, my primary care physician was no longer interested in monitoring my health. It adds insult to injury.

I have sent your newsletters to friends as far away as Ireland, and they have subscribed. Your wise advice, stories full of the love you have for humanity, your generosity of sharing wisdom are all highly appreciated. Some of my friends cannot afford psychotherapy, but need it desperately. Your newsletter helps them a lot. You are a light to the world.

The most requested subject mentioned here was how to handle aging. I suspect that the tools for handling aging would be used throughout your life and not necessarily when you are considered older. I am 75 and I’m interested in what you might have to say about how to handle aging.

I don’t know how familiar you are ADHD and (mild) autism spectrum symptoms, but I’d appreciate any advice on how to deal with teenagers who don’t know how to express their emotions in a form people understand. Especially as the parent from whom those traits were probably inherited 😕

I really enjoy your articles; I find them really helpful. Happy New Year! I look forward to many more in 2024 (didn’t mean for that to rhyme!).
