Hello there! I’m Jessey Anthony, freelance content creator, ghostwriter, traveler, fitness addict and an avid reader of interesting things. This bio is to give you a better sense of who I am — my interests and experiences.
A few days ago, my 17-year-old daughter asked me a question that left me speechless. “Mum, why can’t we talk about sex without being called a slut?”
Like most parents, the first thing that came to my mind was, “at 17, you’re already thinking about sex?” But then it hit me; obviously, I’m one of those parents who introduce shame around sex as a topic, and make it difficult for our daughters to accept sex as a part of adolescence.
I thought carefully about how to reply to my daughter without prejudice, but my brain came out blank. As a…
We all have that self-loathing co-worker who keeps talking others down. Maybe your spouse is the type that praises him/herself to the point you feel suffocated in the marriage. Or your partner is the self-absorbed jealous type who sees you as a competition rather than a soulmate.
I was once in a relationship with a guy who keeps bad-mouthing everything I did. Whenever I asked him to stop by the grocery and pick one or two items for me, he would refuse. Saying I should go get it myself. …
Claire and I go way back in college. I had just gotten a job to supply stationeries at a new hospital in another district. I took on jobs of any kind back then when I was unemployed after college. Although, the job wasn’t paying much. I didn’t want to stay idle while waiting for a better offer. Most of the high-paying jobs I applied for haven’t gotten back to me. I was running low in my savings from previous jobs. I needed the extra money.
Claire lives in the same district. I was supposed to stay in town for at…
Stress is a nasty bitch in itself. And with the modern-day hustle wired environment, we can’t escape being stressed once in a while.
Your constant worries wear down your body, leaving you tired and anxious. You may be working harder than ever to make ends meet and make unhealthy choices about eating and exercise, which can make you feel even worse.
For example, if your family is struggling financially or suffering from a serious illness, stress can become chronic. …
Ever wondered why you suck at basketball? Why you’re a terrible singer? Why you find your job boring? Have you ever felt like you can’t make sense of the world around you?
Maybe you’re constantly up at night, wondering why your life is miserable? You don’t feel happy about living yet another day.
Well, the truth is that you feel empty because you are living somebody else’s life. Shocked?
You’ve probably noticed that after spending a lot of time with someone, you start talking and acting like them. …
Talking about your sexual fantasies can make you feel more exposed, especially if you think those fantasies are embarrassing or taboo. I know very well how scary it can feel to admit your sexual fantasies to yourself, let alone talk about them out loud to someone who might reject you or worse.
But it is very important to talk to your partner about your fantasies and give him space to feel comfortable talking to you about his.
Fantasies aren’t necessarily gross or taboo as most people will have us believe. They are a natural part of being a sexual person…
We often feel jealous of other people around us. We look at their clothes, accessories, or career successes and compare them with our own.
This does nothing but make us feel incompetent and depressed. This exerts a bad impression on our mind and thus affects our mental well-being too.
Contentment is a feeling that comes from inside. It comes from within our hearts. It is feeling satisfied and happy with what you have.
It does not just give you enormous self-confidence but also motivates you to move forward in the right direction.
After breaking up with my narcissist boyfriend, I…
The world we live in is dominated by technology and social media. Sociability is essential for being human, and being independent gives you the opportunity to manoeuvre in society and mingle with people.
It makes friendships, networking and collaboration possible. Everyone should have the opportunity to live independently and with dignity, especially our elderly population.
One of the most challenging obstacles with aging is that you’ll eventually outlive your friends. Also, the fact that many people find it increasingly difficult to make good friends as they age.
But as one needs more and more help in the activities of daily…
As an optimist, I believe we control our destiny. We have full control of our choices and our actions. We learn every day, we face different challenges, and the hard decisions we make are what shapes our life as we grow.
Understanding that though our life is orchestrated by a supernatural power, what we make of it afterwards is up to us. This is where fate and destiny come into force. Life is a delicate balance between the two.
Fate is described as a natural order in the occurrence that is inevitable, it can’t be changed no matter how hard…
