The grass isn’t greener on the other side – it’s greener where you water it.

We all know the old cliché phrase, “the grass is greener on the other side” – but most of us also know that in reality it isn’t true.   This phrase originally came from an American song written in 1924 called “the grass is always greener in the other fellow’s yard” by Raymond B. Egan and Richard A. Whiting, and the chorus goes a little something like this:   The grass is always greener In the other fellow’s yard The…

These games cause situations, or lead us to perceive a situation, as a familiar negative feeling, which then gives us more ammunition as to why our limiting beliefs about ourselves, the world and…

10 lessons I learned from being stalked

In my early 20’s, for a period of around 5 years, I had a stalker – 2 stalkers, both women, actually. I won’t go into the details because there really is no short version to it – it’s a book-worthy story and one that sounds completely unbelievable when I vocalise it.
