Values are what bring distinction to your life. You don't find them, you choose them. And when you do, you're on the path to fulfillment.

I just think when someone hurts or murders someone we should look more into why instead of judging and convicting. For instance, all you hear about the Facebook murder is the sex offender killed the poor "innocent " teen. Never mind the fact this teen was going out to have sex the only difference was the "boy" she "met" on Facebook turned out to be a 30 something man. I'm sorry but she's not innocent. They were both wrong. I don't know but a lot of crimes it seems the "victims" ask for it. Why do we feel sorry for the cheating spouse that got caught and dealt with?? There are two sides to every story. Yes some victims are truly innocent and caught someone's rage unfortunately but there are many many cases that both sides were wrong but only one got punished.

Anxiety about rejection can undermine satisfaction.
