Floating between two worlds

Let’s make one thing clear. These ‘worlds’ may not necessarily be two different physical spaces. Do you feel that the persona you’re known for at work, and your identity outside of the workplace, are entirely different? Or maybe you’ve managed to build up an entire online persona that is miles away from how people whoContinue reading “Floating between two worlds”

Chasing Ghosts

I have to admit…these last two days served a moment of deep reflection about where my life is heading.

It has made me realiseContinue reading “Chasing Ghosts”

Yet, how are dating apps affecting our daily lives and psyche, andContinue reading “To swipe or not to swipe? That is the question.”
