Well this is awkward...
I can't even remember the last time I wrote a blog post, one month? Maybe two? A lot has happened since I last blogged (Excuse me while I check my blog to see what my last post actually was!). I returned to Australia from my trip to Hong Kong, picked up a new job and completed my first year of University. Meanwhile I've also completed five assignments and one large folio project. I can't imagine many of you will read this post since my long absence but it's sure great to be back!
I thought, for this post I might share with you the folio I'd been working on as a means of saying 'I'm sorry I was gone, please take me back' if you will. If you've been following me on Instagram, you might have seen a few sneak peaks already!
Charles Darwin, a naturalist and geologist, once stated that the conscience evolved in humans was developed to resolve conflict between natural impulses and self-preservation.
Why is the rational conscience - a survival mechanism built to keep us alive, the first to go when one feels as though all is spiralling out of control? My interest in psychology has obliged me to delve deeper into the complexity of the human brain. It fascinates me how one’s mind can create and alter connections to allow for efficiency, which has been an important discovery to the world of recovery.
Though one might never be able to ‘step into the shoes of another’, I still believe it’s truly important to visit such tabooed topics in our society with an open mind, as knowledge and awareness hold the key to prevention.
