""Surrender" can be a euphemism for people who grew up in bad families.  That's because children have to surrender to the authority figures like parents who rule their lives.  Especially if the parents are controlling and…"

Understanding how to Surrender

I confess. I don’t understand the the word “surrender”. Sure, I’ve used the word. Like the popular 80s tune by Corey Hart “Never Surrender”, I’ve shouted the words during many late night study sessions.

For the most part I enjoy the holidays.  I like the coloured lights, the songs, the Christmas television specials and even getting together with the family.  The part I didn't enjoy was being asked to give grace at a family gathering.  What to do when the head of the…See More
