Finding Freedom through Emotional Expression

‘Man up’, ‘stop being an emotional fool’, ‘you’re overreacting’..

These phrases may ring a bell given that the pressure of keeping it together drives our demeanour.

In a world where we’re judged and are sent on a guilt trip for allowing our emotions to come to surface, our default mode of functioning has been to zip it, suck it up and just get on with it. Read more “Finding Freedom through Emotional Expression”

Breaking the walls of Judgement

Lets face it. We all judge… All the time.It’s like we’re wired to put people in boxes based on our likes and dislikes, our standards and self-made rules.

Some judgements are based on our values of what we see as good or bad, smart or stupid, responsible or ignorant and the like. Other times our judgements are based on more superficial shit like what school one went to, where one lives, what cars they drive, what brands they wear and so on… Read more “Breaking the walls of Judgement”

Addressing the elephant in the room- the desperation of Validation

We have a problem and it’s a big one. So big that we’ve become better at being in denial about it than dealing with it.

Designing a Resilient Life

Writing about this topic feels rather ironic given that for the most part of my life I wasn’t familiar with resilience, let alone embodying it. Having grown up with a lot of limiting beliefs, I was far from confident and had no desire to be seen in any way. So I shut myself away from the world, hiding in my little shell, going along the ride of life, with ‘I cant’ as my go to word.

The fact that today I can share this openly and the journey I’ve come along thus far, having set up my brand, putting out my content, expressing my voice through videos and podcasts, shows that resilience is a skill that can be learnt. Read more “Designing a Resilient Life”
