Wait, what?! Yes, your loved ones may be slowly killing you by loving you too much. We’ve all heard about, or have experienced loved ones, (fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, etc.), that are a little too overprotective or show favoritism in one way or another.

Joseph suffered terribly, as did his father, Jacob, because the father loved Joseph more than any of his other sons and they knew it! They hated Joseph and plotted against him.

Jeff Kepeli is in his 20′s living on the west coast of the U.S just trying to experience life to the fullest while attempting to help others along the way. He offers up some advice on getting through your 20′s alive, passes around some hope while doing so, and throws in a few “life hacks” here and there which will, he’s sure, be entertaining to us all. Everything from finances, to family, to spirituality; you suggest it, he’ll blog about it.
