Worrying means you suffer twice

I’m a worrier. I worry about everything all the time. It takes up much of my time, energy and sanity. I can not do something without some automatic extensive worrying beforehand. I never really realised this was an odd thing to do, until a psychologist told me so. Typical. I didn’t listen to my mother… Continue reading Worrying means you suffer twice

Meditation. You’ve probably heard of it. There’s a chance people you know do it. Maybe you’ve tried it yourself. It is said to make you healthier, happier and overall just a better person. So I thought I’d give it a try.

First time: going to the cinema alone

Popcorn, whispered conversations, red chairs, the sneaky quick light from a phone.. these are some of the things that I associate with going to the cinema. While seeing a film might be more fun without the loud munching of the person behind you, it is hard to imagine going to the cinema and sit on… Continue reading First time: going to the cinema alone
