The seasons are markers and containers for our lives. They influence weather and crops, but also our moods and vitality. Many people feel happier and more energized during one time of year than another.

up, I was not the cool kid – and my peers noticed. I couldn’t escape — they
were relentless. They would tease me in the hallways, call me fat and poke my
sides. They would pass me hateful notes in class and watch as I tried to hide
my hot, angry tears.

stares, whispered words and pointed fingers. And all of this was just as
painful as the cruel words spoken to my face.

Some of us get angry and defensive while others get
demotivated and start blaming themselves. There are very few people who take
criticism for what it is – and those are the truly secure ones.
So, why is criticism so hard to digest?

average of the 5 people you’re closest to’, I instantly knew there was a lot of
truth to it.
