  • Selflessly selfish

    Selflessly selfish

    We’re only as selfless as our need to serve. But our need to serve is the greatest form of selfishness that we can offer the world. We’ve heard it all before. There is nothing so selfless that it is not selfish. We serve our ego when we serve others. Or perhaps the one that connects […]

  • Don’t celebrate the victim

    Don’t celebrate the victim

    Can you tell the difference between those who want to improve versus those who want others to see how brave their struggle is?

When we look at something and feel overwhelmed by it, we generally find ourselves choosing between two things. We either […]

  • Don’t just stay home – introspect

    Don’t just stay home – introspect

    It’s a time to rediscover what we lost when we were taking ourselves for granted. This might sound weird, but consider for a second that it’s in taking ourselves for granted that we find reason to take others for granted. In doing so, we take things around us for granted and end up committing excesses […]

  • Escaping emotionally abusive homes

    Escaping emotionally abusive homes

    Trigger warning. Unpopular opinion. Tough love ahead. It’s not drugs that steal our children from us. Like us, they also need to feel significant. Taking drugs is not just a bad habit.
