Am I Being Judged or Am I Judging Myself?

All too often people (mainly mums) tell me they are being judged, mostly by other mums. No less than five times in the last week, different people have said: “don’t judge me” usually followed up with “I know you wouldn’t”. Two things here: firstly, why say something you don’t mean?

What Class Am I? On Class and Bridging the Gaps in Society

There are fewer topics capable of dividing a room as quickly as class. I’ve been pondering the question “what class am I?” for years and still have trouble answering. According to this article, which was posted in the wake of the Brexit referendum, most Brits consider themselves to be working class. I myself grew up in a working class household, but it would be more apt to describe many members of my family, during those years, as the didn’t work class. Probably goes a long way to understanding why I don’t have strong ties to the working class. A brief …

How Self Acceptance and Truly Knowing Yourself Will Change Your Life (and Possibly the World)

Are you nice to you or do you talk down to yourself? Without even realising it, you could be chipping away at your confidence every hour of every day.
