With a threenager in the house, there's nothing I enjoy more than having real conversations with other mums and dads about the shitty side of parenting. Because it does exist, despite what Facebook would have you believe. There's something incredibly comforting about hearing other parents' tales of woe and seeing how they've come out the other side.

The media on both sides of the political aisle may well be painting a picture of what they want to see happen, not what is an accurate prediction of what could happen.

The feeling of not being enough is a lie that many of us end up believing at some point. It can send us on a dangerous chase to find external things to make us feel satisfied, but there is no such thing. If we can't find happiness within, we will never be able to find it externally.

The recent feud between Swift and Kardashian may, on the surface, look like petty celebrity gossip. But it tells us more about our modern landscape, demonstrating a master class in controlling the narrative and tearing down your competitor, than almost any relevant MBA case study.

Recent experiences on Instagram got me thinking about the line between being open and too open, between sharing and oversharing. Is it possible to share personal details and pictures from my life and still be somewhat private? Is that even possible in the digital world? Is social media making the idea of privacy obsolete?

As digital natives, our adaptability to change is far superior than generations past. We swiftly adapt from VHS to DVDs and record players to cassettes to CDs and MP3s. We know what a floppy disk is yet can operate our digital lifestyle almost exclusively on Cloud. Our potential is limitless and our ambition is uncapped. We are pretty brilliant.

Greg Kushnick, Psy.D.

Through the daily observation of your friends' "perfect" lives and the subsequent pressure to look like you're also living the ultimate life, you're essentially being trained to adopt a perfectionistic standard for what life is supposed to look like. And that is not good for you, ever.

With the rising popularity of digital technology, social media has become a tempting platform for photographers to promote their talents online.
