5 Refreshingly Open & Honest Articles I Have Read On Medium

I’ve written a lot about productivity & motivation but in all honestly, my productivity & motivation has been through a lot of peaks and troughs lately, mostly troughs.

When I first started writing, I wanted to share the lows, as well as the highs, as it was important to me that people didn’t feel alone and in the last 5 years, it has made so happy when I am told that something I have written has had the desired effect.

So this week, I wanted to share some of the articles that resonated with me. I have found these articles to be refeshingly open, honest and brave.

I’m going to start with Hope from VaKnow22.
I resonate with a lot of the writing of this and sometimes it’s like reading my own thoughts during some of my lower moments, but it also reminds me of the importance of that one word. Hope.

“It is a cornerstone of being human, and I am very grateful to be in a position to understand the value of Hope.”

Adeline Dimond writes A List Of Mistakes, In No Particular Order which has inspired me to write an article of my own about my own mistakes.

“I’ve been thinking about my mistakes lately because everyone loves a mistake, and forces you to talk about them for their own entertainment.”

In 4 Hard but Vital Truths I Learned During Therapy Ashley Broadwater writes about her experiences with therapy. it echoes a lot of my own thoughts and feelings.

“I talked about this with a therapist, who told me we can’t change other people. We can’t control their actions, their words, or what they’re willing to hear.”

Natasha Nichole Lake shares There’s No Perfect Way To Heal. There’s No Template For Coping With Depression reminding us we are all different and have different needs.

“It’s counterproductive to believe that being a better person requires you to be like everyone else.”

And finally, I will leave you with Laurel B. Miller About Me — Laurel B Miller which I found to be beautifully fascinating, sincere and hilarious in parts.

“And I refused to give up on my life because someone hadn’t loved me back.”

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and feelings ❤️
