Doing science isn’t living life. Can Psychology complement other fields and help us find meaning in our deeply personal, subjective, and spiritual experiences?
I personally love making art, writing personal essays, and appreciating history. Before finding Psychology, I studied Philosophy.

Velveteen Rabbit
Margery Williams, 1921
Once a flock of geese was kept in a wire cage by a farmer. One day, one of the geese looked up and saw their cage had no top. Excitedly, he told the other geese, “Look, look: There is no top. We may leave here. We may become free.” Few listened, and none would turn his head to the sky. So one day, he simply spread his wings and flew away — alone.
Sören Kierkegaard, journals published posthumously
