Uncomfortable

Dear Sally, My boss is asking me to do something I’m not comfortable doing. How do I say no? Dear Uncomfortable, For horses, comfort is a funny thing.

The Puddle of Africa: How I’m Learning to Love the Mess

I used to think that my husband was a slob. I liked how it felt up there on my high horse. I liked the thrill of judgment and the impenetrable shield of righteousness. But I didn’t like the constant conflict between us. And I hated the feelings of powerlessness. After a few years of wrestling over this, one…
