Loneliness and University

When you first head off to uni you're ready for a fresh start and to make new friends like everyone else, but what doesn't seem to cross your mind is what if you don't have that new friendship group that makes you look forward to returning after every break. When I first arrived I thought … Continue reading Loneliness and University


Assertiveness vs. Aggression

So I've been talking to a counsellor about finding the balance between assertiveness, aggression and passiveness.
