The Right Path is Covered in Snakes

I’ve been reading a lot lately about the nature of chaos and order, right and wrong. This started with reading Jordan Peterson’s book ’12 Rules For Life’, but it quickly led me down an ethical, and existential rabbit hole. I’ve convinced myself for a while now that morality is relative. In some aspects it is,… Continue reading The Right Path is Covered in Snakes

Irish Begrudgery

Begrudgery is something that comes naturally to us Irish people. For some reason we find it incredibly difficult to be happy for anyone else’s success. We’re known as the ‘generous’ nationality, but when it comes to being happy for anyone else, we’re the very opposite of generous. I’m not entirely sure what it is. You’d… Continue reading Irish Begrudgery

The Price of Ambition

Every single time I do something, or accomplish something, or do anything noteworthy, I never really get a sense of accomplishment. I don’t really ever get that feeling of joy that I see other people get. I do sometimes, and it’s not that I’m not happy with whatever the newest accomplishment is. It’s more to… Continue reading The Price of Ambition

Through The Ringer

2018 so far has been a mixed bag for me personally. It’s had its ups and downs. In brief, I got injured twice, my hard drive corrupted, I had to get eye surgery. There were plenty of set-backs. At the beginning of the year, my mental health took a hit. I was lonely, and in… Continue reading Through The Ringer

I Meet People Everyday

I meet people everyday. I meet people, some I know, some I don’t. I meet people who fake it. I meet people who pretend to be someone they’re not. I meet a lot of happy people but I also meet people in the struggle, who aren’t sure where happiness is. I see people and I… Continue reading I Meet People Everyday

I Don’t Care if You’re Offended

I’m sick to death of how snowflake-y, and offended the entire world is. I’m sick of it. What’s the story with everyone getting angry at everyone else for having different opinions? If you’re a vegan, you’re an elitist cuck. If you eat meat you’re a murderer. If you’re gay there’s ‘something wrong with you’. If… Continue reading I Don’t Care if You’re Offended

Own Your Mistakes

There’s a weird discrepancy that exists between how you see yourself, and how others see you. We seem to always give ourselves the benefit of the doubt. We decide that although we may act out of character, that ‘this isn’t the real me’. We persuade ourselves that our negative actions aren’t part of what makes… Continue reading Own Your Mistakes

“We save our nice words for the funerals”

Everyone seems to care about mental health now. Is it a social trend now? Hashtag Mental Health, look we got some new friends now. Most don't get what mental illness entails, How the mind unfurls. How misguided thoughts bring darkness to your whole world. Do you even know anyone with schizophrenia? People talk about mental illness… Continue reading “We save our nice words for the funerals”

“What Are You Doing With Yourself??

Do you ever do that thing where you see someone you know coming towards you on the street, but you pretend you’re busy texting or looking for some restaurant/cafe so that you don’t have to stop and talk? I do that all the time. I’ve heard people say (and I’ve even thought it myself) that… Continue reading “What Are You Doing With Yourself??

The Difference Between Self-Pity and Mental Illness

I’ve talked before about getting anxiety. I get anxious sometimes. I’m not saying I’ve an anxiety disorder, that’s different. I’m saying I get anxiety. I get a normal human emotion. So do you, no doubt. Sometimes it can be excessive and debilitating, but that doesn’t mean it’s a diagnosed disorder. I feel like people forget… Continue reading The Difference Between Self-Pity and Mental Illness

The Cost of Words and Self-Perception

We all talk about other people. When people aren’t around, we talk about them. It’s gossip. It’s not necessarily negative, a lot of this talk can be positive. A lot of it is also negative though. It’s almost therapeutic I suppose. It makes us feel good to bad mouth someone else. Putting down other people… Continue reading The Cost of Words and Self-Perception
