To begin with, there are only 4 points. People tend to read articles with many points so that they can continuously discover what’s wrong with them and change it ASAP.

Can a fixation on self-improvement actually be a form of self-bashing? It’s a counter-intuitive idea, but sometimes when we think we are trying to improve ourselves, we are really just trash talking ourselves.
Depression is that feeling that makes you unable to recognize the reflection staring at you in the mirror.
Contrary to popular stereotypes, as a man there are a few chores I really enjoy. It’s probably due to my mother making it a point to have us all up on Saturday morning with music blasting, food cooking and cleaning the house from top to bottom.

Do you give good advice? Do friends and family come to you in times of crisis? How would you define good advice?
1. Spend time around positive people This. Is. Key. I mean for real.

When you work for someone else, that little behind of yours is always on the chopping board.
