Shaking tables as usual
No one wants to be wrong. It stinks and Spells failure all over. No one wants to lose or wakes up with intentionality to be the worst. We all love wins and want to eat, breath, sweat and die winning if we could. We want a Picture perfect life with the right amount of the white picket fence effect for the rest to click at. We want to stand out for all the right reasons. We have trained ourselves to accept a narrative that would feed this aspect or at least I had.
I spent a life time running from my past. Making mistakes and gently sweeping them under the rug. I mean a righteous man falls seven times. Well let’s just say I made this falling thing a profession.

Procrastination is one of the biggest enemies of our productivity

the blacklist, go visiting, or do whatever it…

I suffer from depression and social anxiety, I don’t like meeting new people or being in crowds; its just a lot of work and stress because it includes pre planned conversations days before per new person (Imagine the stress if it were 50 people. I wish I would be given a list way before), sweaty palms, fidgeting and a lot of worry. If I fall out of just one pre planned conversation, I feel like the ground should play its back up plan of swallowing me because I immediately feel low and weird.
I constantly withdraw from the social life and focus on getting my mental health in…
