The Light Within You

  We’ve established a false sense of identity which is not in line with who we really are. A socially constructed set of attributes, formed from a very early age from the way we have been brought up and the environment around us. Many of us grow up with the underlying belief that we are never good enough ‪— so we continually seek new diets/training/clothing/materialistic objects to make us feel better about who we are, not realising in the moment that all of this is just feeding our ego and our false sense of self.

  Self Love September is all about loving ourselves, and so far we have focused on learning to love our bodies. As was said previously, this was because the weight-loss industry is currently doubling down on its efforts to make us feel like we need their help to make our bodies acceptable for summer.

That Bitch Called Anxiety

  Anxiety. You know it well. That bitch of a disorder that many of us are all too familiar with and feel we can’t really talk about.    Why? Judgement, fear, perception. It’s an invisible condition so it mustn’t be real. You’re just a drama queen/king. Well, people that have never suffered anxiety will probably see it this way and I’m sure you’ve been on the receiving end of this if you’ve experienced anxiety. Friendships, family, work, thoughts, social media. They’re all triggers and sometimes nothing triggers it at all because anxiety is an irrational bitch that can strike at… Continue Reading
