The Power of Productivity

One of the things I've noticed recently is how productivity can have a huge impact on your feelings of self worth. By now, my journey I've well documented the ups and downs of my mental health, trying to address where it goes wrong and where it gets better; and honestly it's making me a little …

Jealousy – The Telltale Emotion

Jealous is an ugly emotion, it has to be said. It's an emotion we don't often admit to, due to the connotations it brings, and it's an emotion I find myself wishing I couldn't feel.

Now, I'd like to address how fear presents an opportunity for us. A few weeks ago, I'd describe my working world …
