Behave Like an Adult!

I know it may sound strange this title and rude; however it equally encourages us all to cherish our deliberation, ability to take a step back to think, to flow with our joy and to speak up! This statement is critical if you find yourself engulfed in family, social and professional or school expectations andContinue reading “Behave Like an Adult!”

Ethics and Mental Ilness

I am a believer that ethics as a concept is older than the concept of psychology or mental health. It is evident if you look back in history. Even in the ancient religious scripts, people have been asked to refrain their judgement, crime, and lies. So why are some humans compulsive liars, for example? IContinue reading “Ethics and Mental Ilness”

Processing Speed

Processing speed is a faculty in the brain that requires to be exercised to operate comprehensively. Processing speed is the velocity at which a person takes in information, makes sense of it, and begins to answer. This information can be visual, like letters and numbers.

Unconditional Self-Love

The words “self-love” and “unconditional self-love” are experienced by many as archaic or even not representing a priority.

They submit to the understanding people assign to their experiences. I know that this is a fragility in almost all personalities, I have been there myself. There isContinue reading “Victimisation is a Virus”

Judgement is Existentially Harmful

The judgement we know is one of overt criticism towards another or oneself; the thoughts that lead to the action of actually verbalising the judgement. The judgement methodology is an ancient one, inherently in it there is the “compare and despair” mentality. It consists basically of you reasoning and gathering evidence of why it isn’tContinue reading “Judgement is Existentially Harmful”
