Why ‘When they see us’ won’t see me…

You watch the series/show/film, the traumatic event has ended, but your reaction to it has not. The intrusion of what we absorb via the media subconsciously invades our everyday lives, our identity, the way we see ourselves and the way we view others. It directs our decisions without knowing and becomes a veil over every experience from then onwards.

FAQ: How to create a journal?

I am often asked how I created my journals. Not the actual content, but how I design, print and share everything. It's reached the point where writing out the same response without 'saving it' has taken its toll and my flesh would love to shout 'ASK GOOGLE' to the next person who asks me how I … Continue reading FAQ: How to create a journal?

Faith and Technology

Technology is a tool and like any tool it can be used for good or for bad. A knife can be used for cooking, a hammer or axe for building, but both can be used for harm. The tool has no morals or values, it is the user that brings their morals and values to the use of that tool. This is the same with technology. The psychologist in me makes me understand another aspect of the use of technology as a tool. Anything that we use creates or exerts a degree of change in us, whether we realise it or not. For example, when you constantly use a pen or knife, after a while you may see an impression on your hands and fingers. Similarly, our use of technology creates impression marks on our minds which primes us for future activities, decisions, habits, expectations and relationships.

Mature Friendships

In a generation where face to face communication is almost second place to social media, Whatsapp, iMessage etc. I must stress the next sentence. Mature friendships are void of assumptions and full of intentional communication. 'Assumed telepathy is the silent killer of friendship! No one really knows what another person is thinking'. Ask don't assume. Let any person with the ability to talk — ASK. Let anyone with the ability to talk — TELL! Don't assume that your friends know what you are going through if you haven't told them. Don't assume that you know what your friend is going through if you haven't asked.
