Perhaps I should clarify that while the title implies that a sudden onset of selfishness amongst the general population is the case, I don’t think it is. An increase in selfish behaviour and tendencies hasn’t exactly been an ‘all of a sudden’ occurrence. This escalation in the prominence of selfishness across the board is, I … More Why are we all so selfish all of a sudden?
A narcissist isn’t something, I don’t think, anyone should ever aspire to be. Simply put, there isn’t really a single thing about their existence that serves a beneficial or positive purpose to anyone but themselves. There is more to narcissism to that, but I think it sums up the term quite nicely. While narcissism isn’t … More How to spot a narcissist
A couple of days ago, my sister and I were discussing the idea of giving and receiving, and how the concept works out, usually, to achieve equilibrium. I’ve been helping my sister out with some chores around the farm because she currently isn’t able to do them as she normally would, and in turn, she … More Giving and receiving: a thing of the past
The other day my mom and I had a good chat discussing the concept of appreciation, and how, unfortunately, it seems to have become a lost art.

There are a few things that come to mind when I contemplate my own personal pet peeves. People who drive under the speed limit are a major one, as is arrogance or cockiness, entitlement, and when people make your business theirs. I have never in my life been able to comprehend why it is that … More Stop making other people’s business your own
Selfishness is a concept many of us are familiar with but are reluctant to admit to. The act of being selfish isn’t exactly a good one, therefore it makes sense that we avoid recognizing when we act selfishly. But, as uncomfortable as it can be to acknowledge when we have been or are being selfish, … More Stop the selfishness
Ahhh, entitlement. It’s something we are all familiar with, and hopefully it is a concept we can all agree on to be an off-putting one. It’s something I personally cannot and will not tolerate, yet unfortunately it seems as though it’s gaining traction amongst us and the ways in which we present ourselves. Working in … More This is why we need to stop tolerating entitlement
In conversation with my mom, dad and sister the other day, I had a bit of an epiphany, if you will. We were discussing the ways in which children are being raised these days, and the fact that kids aren’t being taught to appreciate and care for things because they’ve been conditioned to expect new … More Are we encouraging wasteful attitudes?
I believe the act of comparing ourselves to others is an integral component of being human. It’s in our nature to asses our own needs in a way that compares them to the needs of others, and sometimes, we believe our own needs to take precedence over someone else’s. I saw a Facebook post from … More This is why we need to stop comparing our needs to others
Since I’ve started working in customer service, I’ve become quite familiar with being treated poorly. From my understanding, anyone who works in customer service is in the same boat I am. And it isn’t a good one. I’m not exactly sure of the distinct reasoning that’s to blame regarding how crappy humans have become in … More It pays to be kind
We live in an extremely self-entitled society. Now, more than ever, selflessness and generosity are scarce in occurrence, while greed and righteousness continue to rise in popularity. I’m not certain that there’s a distinct reason as to why self-entitlement is on the rise in the world we live in, but I’m not a fan, personally, … More Here’s why we’re killing kindness
Have you ever found yourself feeling as though you’re simply not valued? Maybe it’s at work, and it seems as though no matter what you do or how hard you try, you can’t win. Maybe it’s in your relationship, and you’re sick of feeling like you’re not good enough. Maybe it’s in a friendship, and … More Recognizing Your Worth
