  1. Write your 3 favorite things about yourself...

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I can not explain in words just how depressing it is constantly seeing people hating themselves for who they are not rather than loving and embracing who they are and CAN BE. With that being said, reminding us of who we are is an incredibly simple way of gaining a little self-esteem. And most of...

  4. Where is my Mind? - Why we don't let go

    Blog
    Maybe there's a reason we all hold on. Maybe the last guy I was in a relationship with still wants to get back together with me even if being together was painful for both of us, because he misses talking to me. Maybe the reason that I'm not breaking away from my dad even if he's been nothing...
  5. Where is my Mind? - Adventures Without Self-Help, Part One

    Blog
    Self-help has been an obsessive and oddly pervasive presence in my life since before my freshman year of college. Now it's been about two years and six months and I've realized that it's consumed a giant chunk of my free time and has been a way of hiding from the world. Because of this, I'm...

    Hello all, I go in and out of my interest in MBTI typology, and this just so happens to be one of those periods where I'm back in the game. So I was watching vids from this youtube user EJArendee, and in his INFP vs INFJ video he purported that INFP's have plenty of willpower but lack the...

    Blog
    I have reason to believe that this book did indeed ruin my life. Habit 1: "Be proactive" Being proactive and working hard still doesn't mean that you will get what you want because a lot of the time God just plainly doesn't want you to have it. Habit 2: "Begin with the end in mind" Beginning...
