My sister is 21 and dependent on her mother for everything. Her mother and my father have voiced their thoughts on her and hoped that I could get through to her. It backfired and she told me to "back off" and that she "doesn't want motherly advice from me". I want to just let her be and sit back and watch her hit "rock bottom" but something in my gut tells me not to back off till she cuts me off. HELP!!!!!
Dear Sisterly Love,
Its hard to watch anyone you know hit rock bottom. My experience has been that you can try and try to... Read More
I often see you speak about believing that things are going to work out for the best and we need to change our thoughts in order to change our lives but my question is: How can I get there? I'm shut up in my room at night very depressed. I feel all I get are scrapes and nothing really good ever happens?

Dear Trapped in my Mind,
Well first let me give you a hug. A virtual one of course. Listen, I know life isn't easy sometimes and we all have things that seem like they are being thrown at us that are unfair. If I could rewind time... Read More
When was the last time you looked at yourself in the mirror? I’m not speaking about as you’re brushing your teeth, or putting on make-up ladies or even brushing your chest hair (obviously Borat is reading this). I mean really looked at yourself. Sat down in front of a mirror and really looked into your eyes. Looked at the reflection staring back at yourself while no television, radio, computer or anything else is distracting you. That’s what I thought.
So many of us are living unconsciously. We are going through life doing what we “have” to do and just getting by. Then we wonder why... Read More
I love your Facebook group http://www.facebook.com/groups/sharingwithshari/ and youtube videos http://www.youtube.com/sharig74 and in a few you said that the "old Shari would have done this.." What made you change perspective? Did this positive change changed everything in your life?

Dear Looking for Guidance,
The truth of the matter is, I got tired of being tired. I got tired of finding myself in the same circumstances all the time. I got tired of repeating the same patterns and then blaming everyone and everything else. All... Read More
I was taking a walk to Starbucks yesterday to get my “minky winky” (That’s what my boyfriend has nicknamed my green - tea -soy -latte -no - sweetner –extra- matcha drink. Yes, I’m aware that I’m “that girl”, however, I try to be really silly about it with the barista knowing that I’m being really annoying. They laugh. At me probably, but whatever.) when I walked by this guy wearing a t-shirt that said “I’m doing me!”. I chuckled inside (after I rolled my eyes) because when people usually say that phrase, it’s more than likely a rebellious statement because they have gotten hurt by someone... Read More
I find myself a pretty patient person and even one that genuinely likes to help people, but this co-worker of mine is testing my patience and sanity. Every single day, and it never fails, he is complaining about something at work. Even when things seem to be going fine, he will find something to whine about. At first, I was really patient and even tried helping he and giving he advice but it seems no matter what, he will always have something negative to say. I've even pointed that out to he as well and he will be fine for a bit and then it starts all over again. I like... Read More
It was my junior year of college right before Thanksgiving and all I could think about was how many days were left before Christmas vacation when I’d be back home to see my new fiancé. Well, all up until 5am one morning when I awoke from an awful dream. I sat up in my bed, called my mother and told my mom, “I think (insert name) is cheating on me.” Now, if you knew (insert name) and I, you would know that he would’ve never been the one cheating. Everyone, including me, thought that this man would’ve done anything for me and straying would be the last thing I or anyone else would’ve ever considered.... Read More
