I used to surround myself with "friends". I felt the need to constantly be around people, please people, and provide help to people. While I still believe in helping people, I have learned to help myself in that process. I didn't always bear my soul out to close friends, but I have learned the necessity of doing so. It gets so incredibly tiring try…
 
The past 2 months have been particularly challenging for me, and I found myself having NO motivation at all. I woke up feeling shitty, and just had NO drive to do anything. A friend got me out of the house and really shocked my entire system, and that was the shock I needed to get back on track. I hope I'll be able to shock you guys too ;) Music: J…
 
Applying for my masters in this pandemic has been such a different and eye-opening experience for me. My college Biology lecturer once told me: "If you're going to someone in the medical profession, wouldn't you want them to have been a straight A student?" This stuck with me as I contemplated my future journey into counselling, because it held me …
 
Reminder that personality traits are on a continuum!!! They're not black and white. We just tend to be more or less dominant for each trait :) I've always believed that knowing more about your own personality empowers you to be more accountable for your actions and thoughts. You'll also be more empowered to change your behaviours, dispositions, and…
 
Have you ever wondered why a class of students won't ask questions when a lecturer asks if they have any, until that one brave student does? Or how some people may see someone breaking the law and not do anything about it?? That's called the bystander effect!! The 3 main things contributing to this effect are: Diffusion of responsibility, evaluatio…
 
I recently completed a Positive Psychology course on Coursera, and it really shed some light onto this topic which I thought I was familiar with. It showed me a lot more about the HOW of this mental state. People actually project their past experiences onto their future possible experiences. They have decided for themselves that they can't escape w…
 
I've always known that I wanted to do counselling, but I recently got swayed when I was told that counsellors can't diagnose patients. This affected me in a bigger way than it should've as I felt very much "second class". Speaking to people who were in the profession really helped me correct this thinking, but I couldn't help but wonder if there we…
 
I will fight till the last point is scored. It's just how I was brought up and trained. No matter what sport I'm playing, it's not over till it's over. It got me wondering: "How come some people give up so quickly?" Turns out that you can train yourself to persevere!! Using the neurotransmitter called "Dopamine", you can actually "trick" your brain…
 
When I train in Muay Thai, I was taught to match the speed of the person I'm padding for. So if we're training, we should take it slow, because if the person starts to rush and get aggressive, I'm gonna have to match pace with him. This got me thinking about how I can go from 0-100 real quick if somebody starts yelling at me, and vice versa if I st…
 
After a recent interview didn't materialize, I started self reflecting on my own actions. Do I run away from problems that I face; do I avoid uncomfortable situations; am I unconsciously hindering myself from facing challenges? I believe that I'm in control of my choices, but I noticed how I avoid uncomfortable scenarios. Are you short-changing you…
 
I recently watched a video by Tim Ferris the explained how we use "keeping busy" as a disguise for our personal laziness. I found that intriguing because this was so evident in the MCO period, where I was trying to just DO something, but I wasn't really moving towards a goal of any sort. I hope you guys will be able to catch your "laziness" and avo…
 
Shout out to Nalni (BurntCaramel) who requested this topic!!! Acting, speaking and presenting isn't something that came naturally to me, but it's something that I learned how to do. It's like a performance; the more I practiced, the easier it became to deliver that performance. Things like castings and acting STILL make me incredibly nervous and se…
 
Sam told me to share our conversation about job applications, so here it is!! When I first graduated, it was tough for me to know WHICH jobs to apply for. I had little to no experience, and I had NO idea what I wanted to do or would be good at doing. It started out as applying for EVERY job under the sun but after a couple years I was able to learn…
 
Living in a multi-racial and multi-cultural society, we're bound to have different beliefs, people, and attitudes. Unfortunately, we'll also have different treatment. I witnessed this first hand as I was refused service by a Tesco worker after she had helped a couple right before me. It's easier to blame it on race and get angry, but it got me thin…
