The fundamental aim of the Ruthless Compassion Institute is for our clients to lead richer, happier, and easier lives through the practice of Ruthless Compassion. The institute is dedicated to improving lives by empowering people to be more conscious, make reality-based choices and break dysfunctional patterns of thinking and behavior.

“Personal healing and greater awareness make a significant i

mpact on the world. Every person who changes their own life for the better becomes a role model to others. As more people achieve wholeness through fulfillment and freedom from suffering, the healthier our lives, communities and in turn, our world will be” – Marcia Sirota MD (Founder & Director)

When we anaesthetize ourselves with TV, social media, drugs, alcohol, or food, we make it easy for others to manipulate and control us. If we want power over our own lives, we need to wake up to our true thoughts and feelings.

Everyone is equal but we’re not all the same. Everyone has their own struggles, obstacles, and challenges. Everyone has their own strengths and abilities. Each of us has our own hopes, dreams, and pain.

In my new episode of the Reel Mental podcast, I speak with Shane Conto about the film 'The Holdovers.'

Shane Conto (he/him) is an educator by day and a full blown cinephile who dabbles in all types of film circles the rest of the time. YouTuber, writer, and podcaster, Shane highlights his love for film amongst other hobbies (from TV, books, music, sports, and video games) through reviews, podcasts, and a variety of written projects. Running a tutoring center and teaching statistics does not stop Shane from exploring his deep passion for the arts in all the avenues that he can.

The bigger the narcissist, the deeper their insecurity. The more they boast and brag, the more fragile and fearful they are. True confidence is quiet and has nothing to prove.

When someone says, “we should get together,” they don’t mean it unless they nail down a time. It’s not a real invitation unless it’s attached to a plan.

We shouldn’t fear healthy confrontation. It’s better to find out early on if someone is reasonable and responsive to our needs. If we discover that they aren’t, we can cut our losses and move on to better things.
