My Evolving Thoughts on Jordan Peterson

Jordan Peterson. For most people, that name will elicit one of 3 reactions. The first being one of extreme admiration. The second is maybe an extreme distaste for the man, and finally the third being absolutely no clue who this guy is at all (a much bigger number than you’d expect).  Over the years, as…

But Which One Am I?

Similar to my last post, this topic I wanna speak about I feel as if only a handful of people will understand EXACTLY where I’m coming from. And to those of you that do understand, I hope that this serves as a reminder:You’re not alone. But what is it that I want to speak about?…

We Don’t Miss the Person, We Miss the Feelings

I feel like only a handful of people will really know what I’m trying to say here, while the rest may not understand, and even some may think I’m being naive or misguided. But to those of you who do understand, I think you’ll really hit home with this one. How many times have you…

Don’t Change Too Much

If there were two little words that I’ve probably used more than any other two words, it would be these: “I’m sorry” You might already know where I’m going with this, especially because of the title, but I want speak on this topic anyway. And I’m not going to say anything mind-blowingly new here. Several…

An Unhealthy Way of Dealing With Insecurities

Notes from Underground

There are few books in my life, maybe even none at all, that I can truly say they changed my life after reading them. I know that’s such a cliche thing to say, as, it’s cliche to say things like “this book changed my life”, but after reading Notes from Underground, by Dostoevsky, and it’s…

The Problem isn’t with Small Talk, it’s You.

I read something today that really struck me, and I don’t mean that lightly. I find that I’m consistently reading things that continuously make me question my own beliefs, and I think that’s a good thing, but it could also mean I don’t have very strong beliefs, but that’s not what I’m trying to get…
