In case you’ve just randomly discovered my website, or want more convincing, then hello. I’m Matt. And I write. Mostly about self-awareness.


Why self-awareness?


Because that’s where it all starts.


If you’re not self-aware then how can you possibly know what you want? Or what choices to make? Or what’s important to you?


If you’re not self-aware then how do you know what your best chance of success is? How do you know what you want from a relationship? How do you even know where to start with self-improvement?


If you’re not self-aware then how can you accept yourself, and like yourself, and love yourself?


If you subscribe you’ll get my Monday email about all things self-awareness. Here’s what’s in the email:

  • My best blog post from the previous week

  • Why their relationships don’t seem to work
  • How to be successful

(Matt, I just want to read your blog!)







I have one more thing to show you.




Oh yes.


Here we go:


I just recently started reading your writings and I feel so compelled to let you know how much they have affected me these past few days and especially today. Your self-acceptance and love has inspired me to really take a look into my depression and honestly try to understand why I let myself feel this way. I care too much about what others think and how others feel, and I have left no energy to care about what I think and feel. Thank you for committing yourself to writing. I believe you have played a vital role in saving me.”


“Thank you so much for your honesty. At a time where I’m at cross roads myself, you have inadvertently allowed me to give myself permission to be who I am.”


“I love your writing! I feel like I really resonate with you and what you write about. Your words make me feel that bit more confident and able to be the most epic me I can be.”


“Thanks again. Your article has helped me in a big way, more than I can say in words.”


“I want to thank you for what you’ve shared with me for the last few months. Everything that I could lose I have lost. Everything that I was holding onto slipped away. Everything that I believed in I started to doubt. I lost everything. If it wasn’t for your emails, that little ray of encouragement, that little bit of self-worth and trust in myself, I do not know where I would have been today. So, thank you Matt.


“I love how you’re not afraid to expose your own faults and be honest.”


“You write exceptionally well. It makes me want to read more and more.”


“I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your writing. Your work is not just an inspiration, but a dare. And a constant reminder for me to continue to dig deeper and tell my story. Even the embarrassing parts and the vulnerable parts.”


“Thank you, Matt, from all of us. I represent myself, and all of the folks who take this to heart but choose not to write and tell you about it for their own reasons. Your pebble is causing more ripples than you know.”


“Wow, this really helped.  You’re so right about everything you said, and I’m grateful. Whenever I’m feeling down or upset I will come back to this and remember everything that you said. You’re a great writer and you sound like an amazing person. Putting all of that out there and writing everything that I did I didn’t really know what to expect, if anything, and this was what I was looking for. I’m going to take your advice, every word of it, and put it to use. Thank you. You don’t know what you did for me.”


Ok. That’s it. That’s all I have.



(Matt, these testimonials mean nothing to me. Just let me read your blog)



Ok, but maybe email isn’t your thing. Maybe you prefer social media.
