Forbidden Words: Mental Health

It almost sounds counter intuitive to claim “Mental Health” as forbidden words. It has become rather trendy over the last couple of years to mention mental health. Ever since “burn out” became a large issue for employers a couple of years ago, companies are offering webinars and workshops on managing your mental health. Luckily itContinue reading “Forbidden Words: Mental Health”

Authoring Your Authenticity

A minor revelation about myself occurred to me the other day which struck me a little by surprise. As it seems, I have a rather hard time with people being inauthentic. I tend to consider them toxic or just not interesting. Most of my close friends, or even simply people I enjoy running into andContinue reading “Authoring Your Authenticity”

If It Can Be Broke, Then It Can Be Fixed

The other day I was listening to a podcast called “Dear Sugar“. The podcast was on the topic of “Moving on” and how hard it is to do so sometimes, being it moving on from a relationship, or something you did in your past you regret. We have a hard time letting go of somethingsContinue reading “If It Can Be Broke, Then It Can Be Fixed”

The Power of Toxic Positivity

I’ve always been a big fan of positivity and always will be. There are so many benefits to having a positive mindset. Life seems easier when you look at things from a more favorable angel, for example I just decide to take everything as a compliment, no matter how someone meant it. It makes meContinue reading “The Power of Toxic Positivity”

Do what you do best, f*** the rest

You know how when you were growing up and went to school – and had to pass all these random tests and take lots of subjects you were vaguely interested in. And the ones you were bad at you just had to get better at? Either through hard work or support with a tutor? OrContinue reading “Do what you do best, f*** the rest”

Replace Perfect with Good Enough

Its ok to want to be the best version of yourself. It’s a noble goal to have in the short time you find yourself on this earth. Yet there is a flip side to this – when will you have achieved this goal? When do you know that you are now the best version ofContinue reading “Replace Perfect with Good Enough”

When Not To Give a Helping Hand (4 Things to ask Yourself)

Helping others is good. Studies show that helping others not only benefits the person you are aiding, but also increases your own happiness. It gives you purpose, the feeling of being useful and makes you feel needed as well as accomplished. Communities such as churches, schools or neighbourhoods encourage helping others as a way toContinue reading “When Not To Give a Helping Hand (4 Things to ask Yourself)”

You say it best, when you say nothing at all

Its not just a title to a pretty bad, slightly sexist song out of the 90s, but also a concept I have been thinking about lately. Don’t get me wrong, if you want to say something, please do. You should always always get what is off your chest and you should not stop talking tillContinue reading “You say it best, when you say nothing at all”

Endless Self Doubt

Sometimes I wonder if there is something existential about us having self-doubt. I rarely come across a person who experiences none of it as thought a complete lack would be suicidal. Perhaps it is. Perhaps self-doubt serves a purpose to us. A similar purpose like fear – something that holds us back from going offContinue reading “Endless Self Doubt”
