Depression among millennials is a byproduct of the overlap in generations and generational ideas, added with the social pressures and hyperactive consumerism.

By Sean Clarke

Why are millennials depressed? Don’t they have it easier than every generation before them? They have smartphones, on demand TV, Facebook, and cheap fast food.

This is the argument that those from previous generations sometimes make. It would seem that millennials (anyone who was born in the mid-eighties) have never had life easier. There is so much opportunity out there for them. In reality, this is not always the case. In fact, if you ask any millennial, they’ll probably tell you the opposite — that they have got it hard. I write this as a millennial. I…


Couples who monitor every word of each other’s communication with the world often forget to have a conversation.

By Benjamin Ritter

You haven’t heard from her all day, but she has been active on Facebook. You wait a couple more hours, and nothing. To add to the frustration she just posted on her Snapchat story. Why is she ignoring you, but paying attention to the rest of the world?

We have more ways to communicate than ever before, and just as many ways to be ignored. A missed text message can be frustrating, and even more so if they are also active online. Silence is now one of the top causes of insecurity in a relationship. …


Including your pronouns is one way for gender-binary people to overcome the hurdles that our gender-binary ancestors have nailed into society.

By Jane Sofia Struthers

I just added a signature to my email. It says: “Jane Struthers (pronouns: she/her/hers)”.

But, you’ll probably ask, since that’s exactly what most people would expect, WHY include them? I was going to call you “she” anyway!

There’s a simple answer. Including your pronouns in your email and social media, even if you ARE gender-binary, is a recognition that the gender binary doesn’t apply to everyone. Even if it DOES apply to me (and it does!) there’s no way, simply by looking at me, that you’d know this. (Yes, despite me wearing a lot of pink…


Aaron Anderson, a student and new father, found himself overwhelmed and battling anxiety. The solution was simple: Gratitude.

By Aaron Anderson

As a new student and young father I had to work my butt off to keep up with school, family, work and all the other responsibilities that I had. I was working two part time jobs just to make ends meet and I was in school full time so I could graduate on time and move on to grad school. Times were tough and money was tight. I had to work hard just to keep my head above water. Some months we didn’t make it and had to go without some things. This was the hardest for…


Should gun manufacturers remain exempt from liability?

Sports fans who have ever attended a live home game know of and most likely own a humongous foam hand glove with one finger raise high as they chant in unison that “We’re Number One,” “We’re Number One,” whether this is actually true.

Well, fans of firearms in the United States of large military-style semi-automatic rifles to small pistols have taken aim on and have long held the number one ranking in the world in carrying the most civilian-owned firearms per capita of any other nation with 120.5 per 100 people.

Collectively as a nation, we are…


The honeymoon never lasts forever, but you can keep that loving feeling going every single day.

By Amanda Elder

My husband and I started out as good friends. We dated for a year, and then quickly tied the knot. Before being with him, I never felt strongly about marriage, nor did I feel compelled to become a wife. However, Josh and I both had this knowing that we were meant to be together, and a monumental decision, like marriage, became a very simple one.

Despite our faith in each other and the strong love we had, we knew that marriage is a big commitment, and that ebbs and flows in our relationship would be inevitable. We…


Too much of a good thing is too much. Even in a career.

By Stacey Marmolejo

When I graduated from college, I went to work for Eastern Airlines. At the time, it was one of the major airlines, like Pan Am and TWA. That was before Expedia, Priceline, and Orbitz; before you could book your own flights on a computer. Truth be told, it was even before personal computers! The only way you could book a trip was to call the airline or call a travel agent.

My job was to convince travel agents to book their clients on Eastern Airlines. The biggest tool in the shed was what was called Fam Trips…


Daughters of all ages love it!

By Zachery Roman

I’m not a master communicator. In fact, I tend to put my foot in my mouth more often than not, especially when I’m trying to communicate to my daughters how much I love them. Perhaps you can relate. Yet, as a father of two girls, I know that expressing my love for them is extremely important. So, I found a way to share how I feel about them but in a manner that lets me carefully formulate my thoughts: I write a letter.

Yes, I know writing letters is old-fashioned. It also takes time. But there’s something…


Tor Constantino says taking your long-term relationship to the next level requires a new level of intimacy.

By Tor Constantino

There’s an old saying that goes like this …

Men use intimacy to get sex, women use sex to get intimacy.

I don’t know how valid that statement is, but I do know that every woman I have ever met craves more intimacy with the man whom they’re in a serious relationship with.

At its most basic definition, intimacy suggests a mutual sharing that benefits both individuals. There are a variety of types of intimacy that include shared ideas, feelings, experiences, or physical contact.

Each of us needs some degree of connection across each of those areas…
