One of my many talents is being able to project negatively into the future and predict calamity and doom. Although it is something, I am good at, it is not good for my wellbeing and resilience. And oftent I find myself worrying about something that will never happen. I am aware that people say ‘plan for the worst and hope for the best’, however I think we can struggle with the later.
The trouble is worrying is a complete waste of time and energy because we worry about something that may never happen and then if it does, we worry again. We could half the time spent worrying by just waiting to see if we actually need to. When you get right down to it, it is inefficient and we could use the time more wisely.
So I have decided…

The whole concept of having a unique identity is a strangely comforting, yet terrifying thing to comprehend. In some ways, it is a way to show the world that you do not conform to their stereotypes and ideals. In other ways, it makes you a target – an archery post of sorts, for those wishing to lash out with their arrows of steel-tipped mercilessness. And still in other ways, it is a shroud of responsibility, one that tells you that you need to uphold this very notion of self.
This is a fairly unconventional way for me to start a post.
The truth is, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking into the concept of the self. What is it? How does one define it? Why does an idea such as this even exist? And how is this supposed “self” formed?

It’s important to be discerning of how much time you choose to spend with people who may not be in alignment with your own nature or those you may feel constantly depleted after interacting with. Of course, you can still be accepting of them but looking after your own well-being as the priority.
Being responsible for your own peace of mind is using your own gauge as to how you feel with certain people and taking action as to how long you choose to spend in the interaction. This gets easier as you form clear boundaries within yourself as to what you choose to do for your own peace of mind.
Sometimes, it’s just a matter of firstly being conscious of how you do feel and listening to this indication. Then you can start to understand that your time is precious and the way you choose to use it can…

Having the attitude that “everything is perfect exactly as it is” feels good.
For melancholics in particular it may be an expression of providence: the knowledge that all things are working towards the good.
If all things are working towards the good, and we know it, then it follows that everything is perfect exactly as it is.
Not perfect in the sense that it is complete, but perfect in the sense that we are where we are meant to be, everything is as it is meant to be.
This isn’t a question of judgement or assessment, it’s about attitude and feeling.
If you have the attitude of recognising everything is perfect as it is, then you will feel that everything is perfect as it is.
And by contrast, if you don’t feel good, you must be thinking or believing that not everything is perfect.
We see this reflected in the…

Outside, the sun shines through clouds, tempting those stuck behind a window, wishing they could feel it on their skin. As a prisoner of responsibility, one is never free of anything. There is always something keeping you back. When we think of freedom we think of it as having the capability to do whatever we want, whenever we want. Of course, the case isn’t true with the average person: there’s work, family, pets, bills, and so much more that we’re responsible for.
Freedom consists of three main principles:
1. The absence of human coercion or restraint preventing one from choosing the alternatives one would wish.
2. The absence of physical constraints in natural conditions which prevent one from achieving one’s chosen objectives.
3. The possession of the means or the power to achieve the objective one chooses of one’s own volition.

A year ago, I would have said that success to me looks like a big house in an affluent area, a posh car, a high-level job, a family, kids in good schools and a home that looks like a Barker and Stonehouse showroom. I assessed my life, I owned a 3-bedroom house, in an affluent area, in the catchment for outstanding schools. I had a job, a car and a Barker and Stonehouse dining tale that I love, halfway there I thought.
‘Is that how I should be measuring my life?’
Halfway where? Was I halfway happy? Is that how I should be measuring my life? Myself? Was my glass half full or half empty? In truth, my glass had been thrown at the wall and smashed to smithereens. My ideals of life weren’t quite working out and I was far from happy. My ‘perfect home’, my first-time buy wasn’t…

One thing that gets on my head is resentment. People with mental blocks that have been caused by unhealthy attachments to bad experiences that have affected their life and got in the way of their happiness. It is like taking poison and expecting the person you dislike to die.
Recently I have re-evaluated parts of my life that have caused me to be negative towards some people. It was while trying to get over my failed exams from last year that made me want to get on with my life. I found a method that helped me to get over the resentment I had towards my tutors. It involves learning to think about what you dislike about the person or group, identifying what makes you resent them, and then thinking about what it is that you might have done that played a part in this.
Holding onto a resentment and…

One of the biggest lessons I have learnt to date, is the fact that reality is purely subjective. Overthinking is a part of human nature, however it’s highly destructive to our experiences in life and can take away from our happiness.
William Shakespeare once wrote “there is nothing good or bad, thinking makes it so”.
Amidst the chaotic storm…A sense of clarity awaits
In order to grow in life, we must be willing to let go of our past demons. In life we have both good and bad experiences, we must be willing to grow out of these experiences. We cannot have the good without the bad. Equally we must learn to value our lives in the here and now and willing to have new experiences whilst it is possible.
The dual nature of the world shows that opposite forces can be complimentary, and seeking only positive experience can in…

In reality, low self-esteem affects more people than you think. Low self-esteem refers to how you feel about yourself overall. Comparing, gossiping about others, putting others first, even excessive Facebooking are all signs of low-self esteem. You may say you do these things to stay connected or because “I want to”. The truth is when one is content with themselves, they have healthy self-esteem; external validation is simply an additive, not a necessity to their lives. A person with healthy self-esteem spends the bulk of their time doing things that promote positivity within themselves and exude this in life.
Here are some typical habits which show low self esteem :
- Saying “yes” to everything.
- Negative self-talk or self-criticism.
- Back down when opinions are challenged by others.
- Being indecisive with simple decisions.
- Fearing failure.
- Taking constructive criticism personally.
- Sweating the small stuff.
- Afraid to share your opinions in a conversation.
