Doing the right thing, no matter what.

Dr. Paul
Couple having argument with child in room. being wrong, being right

I’m glad I’m not a politician. Especially this year, when political candidates for President are applying the well-worn principle of “plausible deniability”. If you’re caught doing something wrong or make a misstep--- try to wriggle out of it and hope for the best. Most average Americans see right through this nonsense.

Dr. Paul
Woman thinking about issue.

In the last several weeks, we have all seen and heard the Donald Trump video.

Is resentment bad for your health?

Dr. Paul

A couple of weeks ago I met with a group of professionals who were talking about their office. Listening to their discussion, I noted that several of them harbored resentment towards some of their co-workers. “I can’t stand how Joe doesn’t help out, even when it’s obvious that we need him”, Jim quipped. Bill was continually annoyed at a colleague who always had an opinion about everything that Bill did. These feelings just sat in their gut, like a heavy meal they couldn’t digest.
