Hey, they call me Winks and I’m on a journey called life.
A Little bit about me
I was born in Munich and grew up in a small town with all the basic values of that environment, such as go to school, get a job and work hard until retirement. When I was 25 I started backpacking in Australia and haven’t returned since, except for short visits. Of course that didn’t fit in with the expectations of my family and a lot of my friends.
Why am I here?
So, the question is, what am I trying to achieve and why? I want people to educate themselves about things we don’t get taught in school, like developing their own personality instead of fitting into a frame that society puts us in. I’ve been trying for years to fit in, only to figure out, that once I fitted in, I was anxious to do anything that might breach that frame. And this got me into pretty bad situations, where I was dealing with depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts, because I thought I wasn’t ever going to be good enough and my life seemed like a catastrophe.
And then I started. I started looking into myself, reading whatever I could get my hands on about being happy in life and with myself, I started my journey in self development. And that wasn’t so long ago, I’m learning heaps of things and I’ve already learnt so much. One of the most important things I’ve ever learned, is that people can try to control you, but it’s your choice if you let them.
Any situation you’re in, you can improve or get yourself out of, you just need the right tools. And this is why educating yourself is the key.
I know there’s a lot of people feeling stuck in their lives, relationships, jobs and other circumstances. I know that because that’s me not so long ago, and still a little bit today. But I’m changing it with the right tools, the right information and a lot of criticism on myself.
I want to reach you and get you to learn more about life and yourself than you got taught in school. Your happiness is your choice.
If you ever need a hand or have questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
