How I landed in depression by ignoring all the warning signs.

Surviving , existing & burning out vs. living

So, I haven't written a blog post in a while, here’s why. I've had the realisation that a lot of my problems are stemming from totally and utter burnout and meltdown, like constantly.

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” – Carl Jung

Irritation, like most things will be on a big scale.

“You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink” – Anon

Meaning: You can present someone with an opportunity, but you cannot force him or her to take advantage of it. I find this old phrase applying to a lot of situations in my life. If someone is struggling and in pain, and you know exactly what they need to do to stop the pain, you [...]

The oppressed, the underdogs, the misfits

A side effect or a price that we pay for having this self awareness, a higher consciousness is we have the ability to judge, bully and oppress others of our kind. I really think it's a shame and small minded to do so. You would never see a tiger oppress a dog because it was [...]

Capitalism could even be a physical manifestaion of psychopathy " - Jon Ronson Having psychopathic traits sounds like a fun way of living, to do what you want and not care about consequences, with all the money, charm [...]
