(The Wolverine Scene in the Plain Press, June 2015) If you’re having family issues, don’t hold them in. Talk about them, because the longer you hold them, in the worse it’s going to get. You may have a fight with your mom or dad or whomever you’re living with, but if they say something that hurts your feelings, or even that gets to you, just tell them. But wait until everything is cooled down and you guys aren’t angry anymore because when people are angry, it just makes things worse. The conversation will go to go in one ear and right back out the other. Sometimes you have to let things alone; not all things are going to be worth arguing about. When you’re having issues with your family and can’t talk to them about it, maybe you have one close friend you can run to, or a different family member. Then you should talk about it because it’s never good to hold in your feelings. They eat at you and it gets worse the more you hold it in.
