Un-fuck yourself

  Do you remember who you were at your happiest?   Before you let all those mo fo’s dim your fucking shine?   Do you remember what it is that makes you truly happy?   The things you love to do?   The things that make you smile, laugh, or make your heart sing?   Is it time to un-fuck yourself?   There’s never a better time than now to start freeing yourself from all the negative bullshit and past…

You drown not by falling in the river, but by staying submerged in it

  Life is full of ups and downs, where it can feel like the shit hitting the fan will never end. This is a guaranteed part of life. But like old mate Tony Robbins says, pain is part of life; suffering is optional. Granted, when life gives you lemons, you can feel very triggered, angry, hurt, upset, resentful, bitter… and if this goes on for long enough you risk burnout, anxiety and depression.

How I gave my energy and power away on the…

Trauma is the gateway

  I saw a very thought provoking quote by Russell Brand (love him) the other day that is so true.   “Cannabis isn’t a gateway drug. Alcohol isn’t a gateway drug. Nicotine isn’t a gateway drug. Caffeine isn’t a gateway drug.   Trauma is the gateway. Childhood abuse is the gateway. Molestation is the gateway. Neglect is the gateway.   Drug abuse, violent behaviour, hyper sexuality and self-harm are often the symptoms (not the cause) of much bigger issues. And…
