I’ve often been blind to love in the sense that I don’t notice when someone is attracted to me. I’ve sort of always known this deep down, but I never grasped how blind I was and why until just a few weeks ago. Here are my experiences, patterns, and what I’ve learned about myself in the past weeks. Maybe they might help you identify if you’re blind, either in love or in other areas of life.
One and a half years, that’s how long it has taken me to write another article. It’s been a bumpy period in my life, with lots of ups and downs (but mostly downs). This article is a short summary of what my thoughts have been circling around the last years during the breakdown.
Do you find yourself lacking the motivation or energy to work on a project? You get motivated for half a second, then all the energy and joy just disappears from you. As if you light a candle, and just as the candle has been lit someone pours water on it. Making it difficult to reignite the candle again.
How many hours do you spend on tedious and repetitive tasks? Most, if not all of them, could be automated to make room for more fun and meaningful activities in your life. In this article, you’ll find some examples, as well as some tutorials on how to automate your life to help make automation easier for you 🙂
How does a fun, fulfilled, and satisfied life look to you? Do you have a hard time finding the answer, just like me? This 3-step process has helped me figure out what I value in life and guide me in the right direction, even though I don’t know the end goal. I used this process to evaluate 2017, and I will undoubtedly use it again to evaluate 2018, maybe tweaking the method to match my personality. You don’t have to stick to a yearly schedule though, a quarterly or half-year schedule will work just as well. The steps Rate and […]
If you were to review the last year, how has it been? What went well? Did the year go as expected? Was it better than expected, or worse? What can you learn for the next year? These are the questions I will answer in the following review of 2018 🙂
Date: 2017-11-30 In this journal entry, I want to design an exciting life and a way of living I would follow if I didn’t give a fuck what society and other people thought about me. More or less, to just do whatever it is that I want to do and live an exciting life (according to my standards). This, however, doesn’t equate to playing games all days and being lazy. No, this is more about designing my life to be exciting and then follow it. Short disclaimer As always, when I write a journal my thoughts tend to jump around. I […]
Date: 2017-10-19(+20) This article or journal entry is a bit of an experiment. Maybe you will like it; maybe you will not. Just let me know afterward in the comments 🙂 I tend to avoid writing my journal entries on my blog. Partly because I’ve been writing in my physical journal, and partly because I’ve written those in Swedish. Today, I feel a bit different. I want to share my struggles, and I want to write about them on my computer. If this will end up as a journal entry on my computer never to see the light or if I […]
Earlier this year, in February, I had a severe seasonal depression. My mental capacity was at zero. I couldn’t concentrate. It felt like my brain was a lump of greasy mud; even having a normal conversation was a challenge. So for two weeks, all I did was to play games all day long. But as always, I grew tired and frustrated with the situation. I longed to write articles for this blog; I didn’t want the seasonal depression to continue all the way until April. I had to cure it no matter what. But that’s not that easy when you don’t have the energy to do anything.
A story of when I tried to commit suicide, where taking my life seemed like the only option left. I’m still here, and I want to say that you’re not alone <3
