Meeting my Spanish Family for the First Time






A couple of years ago my dad received a phone call from Spain. At the time, he was on vacation in one of Argentina's most beautiful Provinces, C√≥rdoba, completely unaware of the emotionally charged news that this phone call had in store for him. 

He soon found out that his grandfather's nieces and nephews were tracing the family tree trying to reach the lost uncle's offspring who had emigrated from Puente del Congosto, Spain to Argentina in search of greener pastures during a very harsh post war period. 

As for those brothers and sisters, who stayed in Spain, they never stopped missing the long gone sibling, so they made a point of finding us! 

Soon after that phone call, my parents flew to Salamanca, Spain, to meet my father's newly found family. After assessing physical and personality related similarities over big laughs and seriously amazing food, they became very close in a matter of days.  

A few years passed since then, and now, I had the opportunity to meet them as well. So you can imagine my excitement when I met my relatives there. 

My thoughts and glimpses of this gorgeous place are in the following vlog. 




Have you got relatives living in different countries than your own?

How to Identify Narcissistic Emotional Predators


I've been thinking a lot about whether I should write and talk about narcissistic abuse for almost a year now. 

Being a Professional Counselor I felt like I had to step up and do it.  This is such a dangerous and damaging epidemic that I feel like I need to contribute in any way I can to prevent people at risk of falling prey to emotional manipulators, and help present victims break free from this horrible emotional abuse prison.

The video is self explanatory and I hope you find it interesting. I believe that sharing information like this could be beneficial to a lot of people out there. 

Thank you for watching and reading,
