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…

A Modern Approach to: How To Win Friends and Influence People

So this is going to be a little bit off-topic then my more recent posts. I’ve recently been listening to the audio-book How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, a classic if you may, and I’m not really trying to provide any kind of summary, as you’ll find about 10 million of…

I Like Movies With Bad Endings

So in my last post I wrote (if you haven’t read it) I briefly mention the movie 500 Days of Summer. And if you haven’t seen the movie, it’s essentially a “failed romance” in that the two main characters don’t end up falling in love, but rather, drift apart and, ultimately, move on. Honestly, from…

“You Should Seek Professional Help”

I’m going to start this post with what I’m about to say it’s going to be an extremely unpopular opinion for a lot of people out there. The funny thing about unpopular opinions is that they are often unpopular because within them hides that small grain of truth most of us don’t want to face…

To My 16 Year Old Self

So I will admit, this little exercise has become pretty popular nowadays. It’s where you reflect on your life, and ask your self, what would I tell my 16 year-old self, if I could? Now it doesn’t have to be your sixteen-year-old self. It could be your ten year old self, your twenty year old…

You’re Not Who You Think You Are

Who do you think you are? I mean that literally. Do you think you’re a good person? A loving, caring person? A generous and kind person? A humble and selfless person? Maybe you don’t think so highly of yourself. Maybe you think you’re an awful person. Maybe you’ve done some things that, in hindsight, you…

The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Walked Away From

Have you ever been in love with someone? And not that fake love, where you say you “love each other” but you both know (maybe not at the time) it’s just infatuation, and once the honeymoon period fades, so does the “love” that came with it. No, but I’m talking about real love, whatever that…

A Single, Short Chapter

I’ve recently had a series of what you could call, tragic irony, happen to me. If not that, at the very least, it’s something so absurd and unimaginable, that it’s funny. It’s so sad and almost evil in a way, that I can’t help but laugh and wonder, why me? I’m just gonna spill the…

An Unhealthy Way of Dealing With Insecurities

We all have insecurities. That’s not anything new to anyone. We also have our own ways of coping with our insecurities, again, nothing new here. And with all coping mechanisms, there is one more obvious fact I want to share: some are good and some are bad.  So what’s a good way to cope with…

I’m a Highly Sensitive Person

So this post is going to be much more anecdotal in nature in that I’m not trying to “prove” something to you, or even persuade you to believe a certain idea, but rather, I just want to speak my mind and share a little bit about what I’m feeling, and how I’ve been the past…
