Are you needing the adrenalin rush?

We’ve all heard of someone being described as a drama queen – man or women. And we may even fall into that category ourselves. You know, the times when we turn something unimportant into a major issue, blowing things way out of proportion. The behaviour can be overt, with shouting or holding the focus of people’s attention by talking on and on about an issue. Sometimes it can be more covert with things like loud sighs and excessive shuffling of papers. When in this state, we experience a chemical high from the adrenalin that is rushing around our bodies. This can become addictive. It can be a real problem to the drama queens as they need to create the drama in response to the addictive need for the adrenaline rush.

As with any addiction, this is a serious problem as the body is craving the chemicals and cannot function without the fix, in just the same way as a smoker needs that puff.

Some people create the drama wherever an opportunity arises, others seem to only create the drama with certain people or certain situations.

To find out more, here is a humorous and helpful article.

Are you degrading women, without realising it?

Those 20 000 women who marched to the Union Buildings on 8 August 1956, protesting against apartheid, knew this to be true. Thanks to them, and countless other voices, we now live in a world where there is more equality and freedom than 50 years ago. Thanks to these women who understood the power of their voice, and the power of their words.

Tips for a kinder festive season

It’s been a stressful year. In fact, it’s been a stressful two years! As we head into the holiday season, it’s important to take the time to not only reflect on a turbulent 2021, but also to focus on finding ways to slow down. Christmas decorations, shopping madness, carols on repeat, and general end-of-year craziness, can take their toll, often leaving you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.

An attack on the vulnerable is an attack on the social heart of us all

An attack on the vulnerable is an attack on the social heart of us all

When violence is perpetrated against our mothers, sisters, wives and children, the whole of society suffers.
Act to seek out such suffering – it may be hiding in that very women or child in front of you. Fear and pain are hidden within victims of violence. They often tend to remain silent about their shame, pain and fear.
