    What They Don’t Tell You About Anxiety And Depression

    By Rachel Feeling anxious, depressed, lost, stuck, empty (often inexplicably) are very common experiences. We often mask over them, and don’t realise that the people around us are feeling them too. When healed & whole, we naturally feel confident and purposeful. We know what we want to create in our lives, and easily give our energy to this creation. Fear, anger, and futility become virtually non-existent, as challenges are purposefully confronted without taking a toll.

    Self Confidence! (Guest Post)

    EE Cummings wrote that “Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit”… These words resonate well with exactly what Self Esteem is and why it’s important for an individual to possess.   Brief explanation what is self confidence?   In her book The Portable Therapist (1992), Susanna McMahon explains that self-confidence is “a way of being in the world that allows you to know yourself and to take care of yourself.” Mary Welford (2013) says that it’s about being aware of when we’re struggling and having the strength to commit to doing something about it.

    Emotional Ups And Downs: What To Do To Manage Them

    From Give it a Spin “Knowing how to manage emotional ups and downs is one of the key skills we must work on, regardless of whether we regularly visit the psychologist’s office or not.” On the other hand, to assume that we can not modulate our emotions is to limit ourselves in an unnecessary way, especially when these tend to change quickly and we become very sensitive to what happens to us. In this article we will see a series of tips to know what to do in the face of emotional ups and downs, adopt strategies against instability of this type, and adapt ourselves in the best possible way…

    My Classes And Joining A Club

    Philosophy– Okay so this is my new favourite subject!! It’s so deep and interesting and it’s the only subjecting where having multiple existential crisis actually helps you get good marks! And the cherry on top? My professor is absolutely hilarious and looks like George Lucas! Psychology- So we’re basically learning stuff I’ve learnt in High School again which is awesome because it means I don’t have to work excessively hard and I already understand what the professor is talking about! Sociology- It’s REALLY interesting!! I am going to learn about Karl Marx soon which I’m really looking forward to! Earth Science- Okay I’m not going to lie it’s a lot…

    My Week In Review

    Sunday: Turns out I couldn’t find my passport and after freaking out a little I realised I had forgotten it in the Bank.

This was the first time I saw the University and it was huge! And yes I got lost a lot! I made some cool friends who seem really interesting and awesome! Tuesday: Went to the bank and got my passport back!! Yayyyy! Had Taco Bell which I’m kind of obsessed with right now! Wednesday: Got…
