Half of Wisdom

Mirrors

Gary John Bishop is a writer and personal development focused leader. Watching him speak, I heard something that made me really stop and think.  “If all your relationships are a reflection of you, how well are you doing?” Oh ok, FINE GARY!

Fear & Loathing – In Ourselves

Media, social media and popular culture are a perfect storm to create feelings of inadequacy, in even the most secure of individuals.
