I'm a student of life, continually learning and growing, inspired to share my insights with others who might benefit.
The Cure for Loneliness
What is loneliness exactly? We all seem to experience this feeling, but how many of us really understand it? I've felt lonely enough throughout my own life that it's given me plenty of time to examine it, to experiment with it, and to eventually overcome it.
The Secret to Happiness
I think most people have the idea that if the way to be happy was simple and easily accessible, then everyone would be happy. There wouldn't be so many unhappy people in the world. And we certainly wouldn't be unhappy. And so we have this idea that whatever that is, that method, that philosophy, that skill, or whatever it might be, must be a secret. Because otherwise everyone would be applying it in their lives.
How to Truly Love Yourself
We'll often hear someone say that we just need to love ourselves, but how exactly do you do that? It sounds all good and well, but it's not as easy as simply flipping a switch.
How to Truly Forgive
Forgiveness is one of the most challenging issues we face in life. It seems easier said than done. And even when we say that we forgive someone, often we're still holding on to some deep resentment.
Take Back Your Power
How many times has someone made you upset, angry, broken your heart, disappointed you, or made you feel unloved or unworthy? You might say it happens all the time, but I'm going to tell you something radically different, something which you might find difficult to accept. The truth is that no one's ever done that to you... ever.
3 Benefits of Being Single
There's a stigma in our society around being single, as if one is incomplete without a partner. It's often met with a kind of sympathy that suggests there's something terribly wrong with it, and subconsciously we buy into that belief. We find it difficult to appreciate our aloneness, and spend a great deal of time and energy searching for companionship, while at the same time feeling as if we're inadequate without someone to balance us, to fulfill us, to compensate for all the things we feel we're lacking in ourselves. Sometimes we're willing to be with anyone rather than be alone. And so there's such a desperation about it that we don't always choose with discernment. It's like we're in a rush and there's no time to waste.
