No One HAS To Agree With You | An Argument About Arguments (And Extremists)

No One HAS To Agree With You | An Argument About Arguments (And Extremists)

I'm a collector of words, phrases, and quotes. Perhaps it comes from being a writer myself, or the fact I'm a bit of a bookworm, but whatever the reason may be I have various notebooks, apps, and other paraphernalia dedicated to scraps of sentences around me. One such place where I collect quote is in [...]

Are You Struggling To Find Meaning Right Now? Because, Girl, Same | Asking For Advice

Are You Struggling To Find Meaning Right Now? Because, Girl, Same | Asking For Advice

Before I go into this post, I just want to preface it by saying that I’m writing this in a low mood state. Writing is cathartic and I’m hoping by the end of this post I’ll feel lighter, but just to warn you, in case you too are in a dark place right now, that [...]

Just Let Them Be Right | A Note On Protecting Your Peace

Just Let Them Be Right | A Note On Protecting Your Peace

I am quite an opinionated person. This was something that I prided myself on when I was younger, as I thought it made me sound 'strong'. Really, it just made me sound like a dickhead.

I spoke about coping mechanisms in my most recent post, where I was addressing one particular bad habit that I've developed over the years. While I don't want to get too repetitive here, I'm not quite finished with this topic of conversation. I've been thinking a lot about coping mechanisms, habits, and the things we [...]

Don’t Bring Your Feelings To Work… Or Anywhere Else They Don’t Belong

Don’t Bring Your Feelings To Work… Or Anywhere Else They Don’t Belong

This post is entirely inspired by this video by Mrs Midwest, so I gotta give credit where it's due. The title might sound a little aggressive and like something a traditional father who is still concerned with toxic masculinity would say, but I don't mean it that way. In the video I've just mentioned, Mrs [...]

Stop Overwhelming Yourself! | A Call To Myself and Other Perfectionists

Stop Overwhelming Yourself! | A Call To Myself and Other Perfectionists

Despite what the name suggests, as a perfectionist I find that I spend most of time being concerned with whether I'm doing something right, rather than doing it perfectly. I look for advice for all sorts of things, which is why I'm so obsessed with self-help and self-development. I like to see how other people [...]
