If we want a better life, the best way forward is to change ourselves. These articles examine some of the considerations involved in that process.

Bitterness and resentment
Bitterness comes from a continued holding onto the entitlements or prestige we expected we were due, but were thwarted by the actions of others or life circumstances.
Decades of growth
There are many ideas about how we grow up, and this is my take on the process from my own observations.
Developing trust
We live with a lot of uncertainty, and if it is too strong, we lose trust in our ability to control our lives.
Emotions and love
While we often consider love just another emotion, it is more than that, as it is the key to our transforming ourselves beyond just reacting to our circumstances in life.
Forgiveness
Forgiveness is a state of mind or attitude that is not ruled by what we or others have done that has created problems for us. We have let go of it!
Honest about honesty
Many talk about being authentic and showing vulnerability as signs of being honest, but is doing those things really mean we are being honest?
Is it all just noise?
In this modern world of social media, are we just being swamped by others' noise? How do we keep our sense of sanity in all this?
Life patterns
The life we live tends to follow fairly predictable patterns, even in the ways that those patterns can change.
Loss
When we suffer loss in our lives, we can have a sense of being in a tail-spin as we go through a range of emotions while we try to make sense of our life without who or what we've lost.
Making changes to our lives
Through our own or another's insights, we may have seen some new possibilities for our lives. At times, that is enough to take charge of our lives.
Mastering life
Life is not about conquering obstacles, but learning to not be the obstacle.
Mindset is not belief
Many seem to push the idea that changing our thoughts and views of things is all that is needed to change our lives, but there is much more to it.
Scientific methodunknown
Many see science as based upon facts, but the central process by which those facts are determined is based upon a leap of faith. Moreover, that process is used by everybody in their daily lives, albeit mostly imperfectly.
Self-awareness – taking back control
Self-awareness comes from focussing our consciousness upon the nature of our own thoughts, feeling and actions, rather than just reacting to life's experiences and challenges.
Temptation
Too many are willing to sacrifice any morals they have, just to be part of what seems to be the successful/winning team, or get what they desire.
Using the subconscious
We clutter our minds up with so many worries and questions about them that we block out our most important resource, our subconscious.
