Spina uses humor to focus on the commitment a woman must make to herself before making a commitment to a long-term relationship.

Real Talk - A collection of Unsolicited Advice From a Blogger Chick is a compilation of India L. Trotter's blog work. She blogs for her own website Blank Stare Corner and also has a popular online column, The Pointed Circle on GirlTiniLive. This book is merely the conduit to her soon to be released semi-autobiography April Everyday - Autobiographical Snippets of an Insignificant Woman. Her sentiment is that you first acquaint yourself with her blogs, writing style and her surface self. She will later pull back her layers of complexities and open you up to the woman that you think you know but have yet to really meet. Matters of love, self awareness, relationships and spirituality [or the lack thereof] are all up for discussion within these pages. You will laugh, self reflect and [in some instances] simply stare blankly. More importantly you will either learn what to or what not to do.

“Somebody should do something about that!” We hear it and say it frequently. Maybe we have felt that the “somebody” needed to be somebody else because we were not capable, we didn’t have the financial or influential means, or that we just didn’t have the time; but maybe God wanted us to be that “somebody.” Maybe He wants you to be “somebody” today. With God, we can be “somebody.” When we work with Him according to His plan, He will provide the abilities and the means. Discover the possibilities. Be somebody! I will do what I can, where I am, with “I AM.”

What are the motivations and desires behind relationship choices and sexual behaviour? Are they very different for those with Asperger Syndrome (AS) than for anyone else? Does having extreme sensitivity to physical touch or an above average need for solitude change one's expectation of relationships or sexual experience? Many people on the autism spectrum have limited knowledge of how to establish or conduct sexual relationships: drawing on extensive research with people on the autism spectrum, the book openly explores such questions. For the first time people with AS discuss their desires, needs and preferences in their own words. AS attitudes to issues such as gender, sexual identity and infidelity are included, as well as positive advice for developing relationships and exploring options and choices for sexual pleasure. This accessible book is an invaluable source of information and support for those with Asperger Syndrome and couples in which one or both partners has Asperger Syndrome, as well as counsellors and health and social care professionals.

Anxiety is epidemic and it touches people from all walks of life, knowing no age, gender, ethnic, or economic boundaries. It can be paralyzing while considerably narrowing the scope of your life. This book provides practical, holistic, easily understood strategies for all ages, presented through storytelling and the sharing of real experiences. You will discover the benefits of cognitive behavioral work (yes, your thinking and behavior do matter!) and learn how to let go of control, stop what-iffing, set boundaries, calm your body, and stop stewing - all to help you alleviate your anxiety.

An instant New York Times bestseller! “Rapinoe's 'signature pose' from the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup is synonymous to the feeling we got when finishing this book: heart full, arms wide and ready to take up space in this world.”—USA Today Megan Rapinoe, Olympic gold medalist and two-time Women's World Cup champion, reveals for the first time her life both on and off the field. Guided by her personal journey into social justice, brimming with humor, humanity, and joy, she urges all of us to ask ourselves, What will you do with your one life? Only four years old when she kicked her first soccer ball, Megan Rapinoe developed a love – and clear talent – for the game at a young age. But it was her parents who taught her that winning was much less important than how she lived her life. From childhood on, Rapinoe always did what she could to stand up for what was right—even if it meant going up against people who disagreed. In One Life, Megan Rapinoe invites readers on a remarkable journey, looking back on both her victories and her failures, and pulls back the curtain on events we know only from the headlines. After the 2011 World Cup, discouraged by how few athletes were open about their sexuality, Rapinoe decided to come out publicly as gay and use her platform to advocate for marriage equality. Recognizing the power she had to bring attention to critical issues, in 2016 she took a knee during the national anthem in solidarity with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick to protest racial injustice and police brutality—the first high-profile white athlete to do so. The backlash was immediate, but it couldn’t compare to the overwhelming support. Rapinoe became a force of change. Here for the first time, Rapinoe reflects upon some of the most pivotal moments in her life and career – from her realization in college that she was gay, through the disputes with soccer coaches and officials over her decision to kneel, to the first time she met her now-fiancé WNBA champion Sue Bird, and up through suing the US Soccer Federation over gender discrimination and equal pay. Throughout, Rapinoe makes clear the obligation we all have to speak up, and the impact each of us can have on our communities. Deeply personal and inspiring, One Life reveals that real, concrete change lies within all of us, and asks: If we all have the same resource—this one precious life, made up of the decisions we make every day—what are you going to do? "One Life makes it clear that Rapinoe’s greatest accomplishments may ultimately come away from the soccer pitch. She’s a new kind of American hero."—San Francisco Chronicle
