We live in a world now where the important aspects are overlooked. Things like the ‘Self’ and its Mental Health are not considered important.

On the contrary, and in my view having a knowledge of how the “Self” is; how its impulses and desires, it’s potential for both good and evil shape our actions is one of the primary purposes of life. Self-discovery, self-actualization, individuation, self-reflection and so much more related to one’s being are what made me feel the need to express my thoughts, ideas and views in this platform.

The Self’s (psyche’s) well being is a crucial factor to its development. To overlook such factor as unnecessary is to invite upon ourselves bouts of depression and feelings of being lost. We have a responsibility to take care of our psyches as individuals in order to thrive and have a meaningful life.

“Nobody can build the bridge for you to walk across the river of life, no one but you yourself alone. There are, to be sure, countless paths and bridges and demi-gods which would carry you across this river; but only at the cost of yourself; you would pawn yourself and lose.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Untimely Meditations

As the Academy of Growth, this platform places much focus on Self-Development, Mental Health, and a little bit of Productivity since it is my belief that being productive over things we genuinely find meaningful may reduce the feelings of inadequacy and depression we often attach to ourselves for the mere fact of making no progress in those goals and dreams of ours.

Also, feel free to comment, like and share any thought, ideas, concerns or even criticisms in the politest way possible. It is after all intended to be an interactive platform. Let us not be among those who learn and withhold- Let us be among those learn and share for others to learn.

I shall also be sharing stories and posts by others who want to express their opinions or tell their stories but have no interest of having a platform like this or have no privilege of owning a platform like this.

My Reach Out page has the necessary information for all of my readers to reach out and share.

Let us build a community that has the wisdom enough to respect the thoughts of others regardless of their agreeing with them or not.

Enjoy the reads!!!
