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 […]

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 […]

Pride and Prejudice and UK Hip-Hop – Chester P, Daniel Waples and Lyrically Challenged

Not sure where I currently stand on boasting / self promotion.But as I have started to tell you all when I’m depressed or anxious I shouldn’t fail to share when I’m proud and pleased with myself. February 20th I shall be supporting one of my favourite rappers ever – Chester P of Taskforce – at […]

More 0pen with Less Judgment

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. […]

Feeling Happy (but leaving it at that would be far too simple…)

Feeling pretty damn happy. Actually no, I’ll say I’m content. I started happy but by the time of editing I had chilled out to the point of ‘content’. Contentness tends to last longer with more stability anyway. Considering even my most optimistic writings of recent times have been mainly inspired by my recent anxiety and […]

The Blame Game

Essentially we are power born, it may sometimes feel like we have no control what life throws at us (although some would argue that we attract the mirrors we experience and others would argue that between lifetimes we asked for all the lessons we get – both of those stories just hurt more when life […]
