Are your ’30s’ the moment when you say ‘F**k that’ and start putting yourself first?

I am speaking with people around me and apparently, the 30s are way better than the 20s. I have to admit I am getting less and less interested in opinions and what other people say. It is not clear if this is the same for people with children, I do not know so many in … Continue reading Are your ’30s’ the moment when you say ‘F**k that’ and start putting yourself first?

Giving up printed T-shirts and gifts because I am done

I do not care anymore. I used to believe it is nice to show my personality with the help of printed T-shirts but I think it is done. Last week I went to look for printed T-shirts but I decided to make a major change in my look. I do not have to show people … Continue reading Giving up printed T-shirts and gifts because I am done

Easy morning routine – make-up and skin

I always hated a complicated morning routine and because of that, I used to avoid makeup for months. This year I am planning to pay more attention to my skin.

First month of Therapy – conclusions

I was looking over a list of subjects that I want to write about and I saw I also wanted to write about the week before therapy, so I will write a mix between before and after therapy.

The problem with daily writing

I started writing daily almost 3 years ago and I kept doing that until 4 days ago. As I mentioned before, I used to write morning pages as part of my healing journey.

The trap of drawing daily

Today I was speaking with my husband and I wanted to say I had no time to draw but I realized that I am drawing daily, but it comes so naturally that I am not considered it drawing.

How I use social media as a tool in my develpment

I was making a coffee in the office and I was thinking about what keeps me motivated. I used to be a boring person, I just smoked and bitch about stuff all day.

Why we don’t let ourselves say ‘I am the best’?

I heard a girl saying on a podcast that she is crushing it and it almost gave me an anxiety attack. That made me realize I have a problem because I am also good at my job but I felt like I could never say that out loud.  My mind tried to tell me that … Continue reading Why we don’t let ourselves say ‘I am the best’?

Depression in men – the silent killer

I wanted to start this article with statistics worldwide for men with depression but, after reviewing the documents, I decided it is useless. It seems like the numbers are not quite representative because men are really reluctant to go and see a mental health specialist. For Europe, you can find a lot of data on … Continue reading Depression in men – the silent killer
