Overcoming Loneliness

Something usually triggers a memory of us feeling alone, it’s not always because we are alone, or we’re feeling isolated. But overcoming the memory that triggers the feeling, is perfectly doable.

Where the brain is designed to pay attention to things like pain and includes painful memories and experiences, loneliness may be part of that equation too. Learn to love and be in your own company. Learn to …

Uncertainty

Growing up around a disability I didn’t know I had meant I lived with uncertainty, primarily because I had no understanding on what I was dealing with. I was also too young to understand. As I began to grow, I understood more of what was happening, which is why everything felt so heavy.

Whilst mentally continuing to struggle, I also had to deal with uncertainty around my disability, which made each day an uphill battle. I found it difficult to integrate into school life and making friends wasn’t …

Selflessness

Being selfless means being focused on the needs of others, rather than our own needs. It is one of the most endearing qualities we will possess. As a child I spent my formative years thinking about and putting everyone first. I was selfless. As I continued to grow, I continued to put others first.

But selflessness is within all of our grasps. People who are selfless are giving. They are ready to put others first and will if they have to, express concern for others. Selflessness helps us to expand our …

My feelings as a child

Another personal blog because this was on my mind. My parents never positively encouraged me to think about my feelings as a child, which meant I missed out on the opportunity for me to be able to process my feelings.

Finally proving myself

Having finished the book as my thoughts turn to publication day, I now have a new thinking. I never thought about how I would feel writing the book, or whether it would change me through the other end.

It’s been a long drawn out process, three and a half years to be exact. Writing the book has catapulted me into a different mental space. Becoming a writer has shown others just what I was capable of, even …

On the back burner

There’s a project you’ve put on the back burner, there’s a phone call you need to make and you’re still putting it off. But just imagine how much freer you’ll feel and how much less stress you’ll have, if you stop putting things on the back burner.

If life teaches us one thing, it’s that we must do the things we don’t want to do and nothing goes away until we deal with it. All too often and in hindsight, it’s the things we ignore that are the things we wish we’d dealt with, further down the line.

Why we mustn’t be defined

We define ourselves by the standards we create. Those standards are a checklist of our behaviour, ethics and morality.

Each of our also stories contain a set of standards, which initially our parents set for us, which we continue to define ourselves by. The problem is that most of us don’t think about the standards we’re subconsciously …
