How self-care can empower women to achieve greatness

A guest post by Mariah MacInnes As a female, nothing is impossible. But what makes things impossible? The self-talk you tell yourself, the label you give yourself that makes you “not good enough”.  So how do you make yourself “good enough”? It is that part of your body that controls everything you do, yep your brain.  Your brain is telling you what you can and can’t do. So how do you switch it off?  You don’t, you just re-educate.  So we have put together some practices you can do to help retrain that brain so you can care for yourself […]

Living outside the box

By Bo Brummel I belong to the generation known as Millennials, which includes everyone born between the year 1981 – 1996. Growing up I quickly came to the realisation that the choices and freedom my generation has are way more abundant than 40 years ago. Most people lived where they were born, worked there and got married to someone near them. It was not this idea in particular that scared me, it was the predictability of life, and the fear of living a short and unfulfilled life that stimulated me to live my life in a different way. Of course, […]

Guilt and emotional manipulation

Have you ever wondered why in certain relationships you always feel like you’re doing the wrong thing? It could be a friend, family member, or partner, but you realise that you’re often feeling guilty or ashamed, even if you know you didn’t intentionally do anything wrong. Emotional manipulation is a form of control, sometimes out of fear (e.g. of losing you), or even out of love (e.g. because they want to help you but don’t know how). One of the key signs of emotional manipulation that I learnt in my previous relationship is that we should never be made to […]

Why people fear your success and secretly love to see you fail

Years ago I completed a pharmacy degree in Adelaide and started my career as a pharmacist in retail pharmacy. Whilst this was a completely respectable job, I realised quite early on that it wasn’t suited to me as someone who thrived on career progression, dynamic environments and working within flexible conditions. Not to say that this isn’t possible as a pharmacist, but I found the conditions restrictive for me compared to other vocations, with wages not growing, daily tasks often becoming monotonous over time, and with limited growth opportunities, particularly within the retail environment. So I embarked early on with […]

Open up: Communicating hard things to people we love

We all have had a moment when we want to say something difficult to somebody we love but we doubt whether to open the Pandora’s box or avoid a confrontation. Especially with people we love and care about, it can be quite frightening. We are afraid that we might upset their feelings, hurt the relationship and scar something precious to us for life. However, an open communication is one of the main characteristics of a healthy relationship. Opening up to say things that hurt us, worry us, concern us or make us feel heavy is needed to live an open […]

Defining success

What does success look like and how do we know when we’ve made it? So often we keep chasing goals yet once we reach them, we realise that we’re not any more fulfilled than we were before. So how do we define success? When we think about the word success, the first themes that come to mind are often relating to money, work, power, fame, beauty and material achievements. But what is the foundation for these commonly presented views of success? As often stated by the Dalai Lama, the true goal that each of us seeks is to find happiness. […]

How people flaunt their relationships to feel better about themselves.

We are in a society where romantic love is predominantly valued over all other achievements. But whether single or in a relationship, it’s human nature to try and take actions to make ourselves feel better or superior to others. I’ve been single for the past three years since letting go of a toxic relationship. When I reflect on how I feel about this, it’s probably a mixture of anxiety, hope, acceptance and relief – levelling out as a neutral energy, neither positive nor negative. However I’ve observed that depending on the environment that I’m in and who is around me, […]

Letting go of fear

It seems that everywhere we look, people are riddled by fear. Fear of being judged, of voicing their own opinions (whether in line or against popular views), of living how they truly want, working the jobs that make them happy, and reaching for the life that they deserve. Essentially, we’ve become afraid of truly being ourselves. The biggest testament to this is the fear that people have of working towards their dreams. As children we had no fear – we did what we wanted, until eventually we were conditioned to believe in boundaries, limitations and the importance of meeting expectations. […]

The importance of boundaries

Often we find ourselves in situations or amongst people that leave us feeling drained, frustrated or doubting ourselves. Yet we continue to allow these people and situations to be part of our lives – maybe we feel obliged because we’ve known them a long term, or we just feel bad saying no and making someone else unhappy. Maybe we feel perversely better about ourselves by being agreeable and making someone else temporarily happier, to the detriment of our own emotional and mental wellbeing. If we continue these patterns however, we start to realise that we’re not truly making choices for […]
