The reason why I created STRENGTH with SUBSTANCE
As a law graduate, I was unemployed for a while. During this period, I noticed a sad, familiar and recurring pattern within my age group (and even younger): A lot are uncertain about their future! (Myself included).
Irrespective of how much we appear to “have our shit together”, I find that we are actually lost, misguided and sometimes, some of us are simply bored of our daily lives.
We live in a digital age where social media reigns supreme!
We have a great number of people putting on a fake smile each and every day looking like they’re sitting on top of the world but in reality, they’re ready to jump off it. (I nearly lost a close friend to suicide and I’m currently worried about two others).
I also know that some of us feel empty inside and we are desperately looking to fill this void.
Some of us feel stuck at a dead end job going through the motion and feel punished by the “9-5” cycle. We are often left feeling trapped inside a lifestyle that we absolutely despise. “They never told us it was going to be like this”. Such is life and now:-
We feel as though we are in a sunken place!
Living my life sharing my story:
The quote above is one of the governing principles of my life today and I created STRENGTH with SUBSTANCE as a platform that will help me achieve just that. I don’t have life “figured out” quite yet, but my goal is to document my journey. I understand that my life purpose is not static or singular and my priorities will change.
However, I also know first hand that life is tough and its challenges can be mentally draining. I know how difficult we may find it to seek help sometimes so, my goal is to provide solutions in the little ways I can to those who are “ashamed” to ask for help- I want to provide answers before you even have to ask them- I want to satisfy your cravings. Although, it goes without saying that my opinions are mine and mine alone. There’s never a one size fits all approach to most things in life but, I hope you’re able to find value in what I share with you and you will use them to reach a higher level of success, depending on how you choose to define it.
I’m not the most outgoing or sociable individual and to be frank, I really don’t like people, but, I just genuinely want people to be okay. I figured that if people are okay, then the world won’t be such a shitty place to live in. Therefore, I’m using this as an opportunity to say that I’m here to be a friend and a trusted source of advice.
Once again, I’m not claiming to be an expert and I am far from perfect but my objective is to gradually share how I regained control of my life through a series of regular blog posts and other content (podcast) in the hope of improving yours.
My goal is to help you overcome some of your personal struggles whilst I dig through my own “life’s personal shit box”. I understand now more than ever how tough life can really be and, ultimately, we all face a common struggle as human beings and that’s to overcome physical, mental and emotional obstacles. I hope you will be able to relate to some of my experiences and use them to better yours.
THE RULE OF 10:
3 people will care about what I have to say and offer, 3 people won’t and 4 simply won’t give a damn. I’m trying to reach and connect with the 3 that cares.
Nothing fancy, no hidden agendas, and I’m just speaking straight from the heart.
That is all.
