On The Nature Of Anger #anger #anxiety #depression

About anger – I would like to crowdsource ideas on the nature of anger, the merits of anger and the dangers of anger (both the dangers of the expression of anger and the repression of anger) etc. There is a cultural context and a personal context (and I want to write while I’m feeling brave […]

Forgiveness, Healing and Empathy #forgiveness #healing #empathy #depression #anxiety

“…it’s a shame when you forgive consciously but something in your bones can’t help but try to avoid getting hurt again… ” I wrote that recently. I wrote this three months ago – “There are times to work and times to rest, like seasons, either are fine and neither are to be judged as wrong […]

Antisocial / Social Anxiety – both or neither? #depression #anxiety

For the record, between epic social events I’ve committed to – particularly one’s I am performing at and therefore committed to attending – I am generally an anti-social bastard. Do not take it personally. There are several reasons for this, social awkwardness, social anxiety, 15 years of partying, introvert habits I picked up during two […]

Cry Every Day

From now I don’t quite say that I vow but I try to make a decision to cry every day, “why would he say to cry every day”? cos life is just made for feeling, we hide every day instead of revealing, and when we don’t cry every day we lie every day to ourselves. […]

10 Years of Bristol (9 years a Druid and 7 years aware of Balanced View)

10 Years of Bristol, 9 years a Druid and 7 years aware of Balanced View. I have recently moved back to London. This has prompted lots of reflection recently. One decade that spanned across Saturn’s return. 10 Years of Bristol, 10 years ago I left London and moved to Bristol. I had been getting depressed […]
