New: THE RELATIONSHIP OF EMPATHY, KINDNESS AND GRATITUDE

Empathy is defined as the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Encompassing many emotional states, showing empathy is a sign of humility and is an advantage – not a weakness. As humans, we feel the need to be understood and heard. Therefore, demonstrating empathy gives an emotional understanding of others and ourselves, which …

THE SECRET BEHIND 1984

1984. 36 years ago. And there’s still no justice. There’s so many people who still don't know what happened because there’s not enough coverage of this event on the internet. Over here, you will have a chance to educate yourselves further and learn more about what happened. I saw a video interview of an Eye …

5 MINUTES

Random thought. The word feminist sounds a lot like it’s to do with females, don’t you think? Being a feminist doesn’t mean I’m only supporting females. Being a feminist doesn’t mean I’m against men. Being a feminist however, does mean that I’m demanding equality for all. It does mean that I’m raising my voice against any unequal behaviour towards any gender. I’m pretty sure …

THAT SOMEONE

Face it. At some point in your life, you’ve unintentionally judged someone because of their appearance. Maybe their hairy arms and legs, their messy hair or their puffy eyes. Today, I’m going to write about something, that’s simple yet challenging for some people to understand, even in this day and age. Here’s a little riddle. Guess …

My intention is never to complain about the nonsensical things society imposes on us- it’s more about acknowledging what’s happening, so that we …

BE THE CHANGE

Working in the same company but being paid differently. Working in the same company but being treated differently. Working in the same company but having different experiences. It’s time to raise a voice against this. Did you know females are paid around 79p for every £1 a man makes? This may not sound like a lot but think about it like …

HELP TO MAKE IT EASY

Depression. That one word leaves a rollercoaster of emotions inside you. Even a mental health problem like that, is gendered by people in society. Seriously? Why can a man not openly talk about his mental health problems, without being judged? Instead of hearing 'man up', they need to hear "Let’s talk about it." There is no such thing as …

AS SIMPLE AS THAT

Something I read on Instagram really stuck with me: "Teach your daughter economic independence so in the future, she can have a partner, not a master. Teach your son to do housework so in the future, he can have a partner, not a servant.” (definitely vice versa too) Something I don’t understand is why men and …
