There's a saying that goes something like, if what you're doing isn't working, do something else. It's simple enough and yet we end up making it so much more complicated. Sometimes we even complain about certain aspects our life as though we don't have the power and control to change things. And sure, we can't … Continue reading What’s the real problem?
Finding the right perspective

What happens when we speak up?
This year I learnt lots of important lessons about speaking up. When we speak up we're being our authentic selves instead of hiding who we are.

What matters most?
Sometimes the choice you have to make is between taking care of yourself and meeting other peoples expectations. Nobody wants to be considered a let down which is why often people end up putting themselves aside and focusing more on other people.

Why people give unsolicited advice?
When someone you care about comes to you with a problem even if they don't ask you for advice you're instinct is to help them and to make the problem go away.
