Exposed to different elements

Wilful Behaviour

We would have to have our eyes closed not to see someone that presents with wilful behaviour. Even if it’s not obvious at first, it quickly becomes obvious and is often difficult to avoid. When it happens in families, it’s more difficult to understand.

Wilful behaviour is calculating, it’s behaviour that if that person had their time again would do the same thing again. Wilful is not premeditated. It is usually brought about through unconscious thoughts …

Big Egos

For anyone with a big ego, they love themselves so much they won’t worry about anyone else, but unlike someone with narcissist character traits, they also won’t set out to make your life a living hell.

Even though their views are grounded in reality, those with big egos are still full of their own self-importance. But we can all …

Living with truth

“A truth is considered to be universal if it is logically valid in and also beyond all times and places. Hence a universal truth is considered logically to transcend the state of the physical universe, whose order is derived from such truths. In this case, such a truth is seen as eternal or as absolute.” – Google.

Why is truth important? Truth is important because it tells others we have integrity and a moral compass and because life works out better when we do. It shows others we live with integrity and are working …

Be unique

Reflect on what it means to you to be ‘unique’ because unique will always be interpreted differently. It’s about mindset, relying on yourself so that you stand out and being confident in your abilities.

Be unique and bring your own values into focus, relating to others through your set of values. Think about what you want and determine your own goals. To be unique you need to stick with what you think …

Unify and Consolidate

In a world that is sick with Covid-19, it is important we unify, consolidate and come together, so that we can come through Covid-19 the stronger for it.

To unify and consolidate means we come together to achieve something, in this case reducing Covid-19, which has the potential to mutate and grow. With the world now in crisis, it means each of us are dealing with a crisis.

It is important to pull together. I go back to the point that just because we can’t see how the virus works and mutates, it doesn’t mean it’s not growing or changing.

Although …

Trust doesn’t always equal truth

Trust doesn’t always equal truth. When it comes to relationships, if someone doesn’t tell the truth and you’re having to read between the lines to work things out, there is no trust and it’s probably time to move on.

Just because someone says you can trust them, doesn’t mean you can. Trust issues happen because people are either conservative with the truth, or they lie. Trust is about goodwill, it’s telling the other person …
