/
It’s been a year and a half since my last burnout. I remember the tightness in my chest, the shortness of breath, and lots of tears from feeling so overwhelmed by work.

"God, please give me a job that I would be happy to wake up to every morning for 40 years.” This was my genuine prayer right before graduating from university.

He felt that if someone has been in the job long enough, a promotion should naturally come along. But sadly, this is my eighth year in my current role, and I have yet to be promoted. It was not how I had hoped things would be.

4 Tips to Connect Better with Workmates Through Covid

/
Alas, the arrival of COVID-19 has changed the way we work and interact with our workmates. And for some of us, we haven’t physically met with our workmates for almost half a year now. In spite of that, we still have an opportunity to build a deeper relationship with them

3 Steps to Loving Those Who Drive You up the Wall

/
Every day, we pray for new strength so we’d be able to walk out Jesus’ call to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us (Matthew 5:43-44). But, at the end of each week, we’re worn and exhausted, and find ourselves throwing mental darts at our enemies.
