The Blame Game

“Blame doesn't empower you. It keeps you stuck in a place you don't want to be because you don't want to make the temporary, but painful decision, to be responsible for the outcome of your own life's happiness.”- Shannon L. Alder Let's be honest...we have all played the Blame Game. It is easy to do... Continue Reading →

How Are You “Feeling?”

“We try so hard to hide everything we're really feeling from those who probably need to know our true feelings the most. People try to bottle up their emotions, as if it's somehow wrong to have natural reactions to life.”Colleen Hoover I have been thinking about my "feelings" a lot lately. Emotional feelings that is,... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On The Unwritten Page.

Silent Shrug, 2015. Belgium. Original Photo by SnapDragon X.All rights reserved. What is with us humans? Why do we have a tendency to trivialize other people's problems, but when they happen to us, it's the end of the effing world? We compartmentalize for our friends: Hey, at least you don't have to worry about: the... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On The Mirror.

Gentle Spirit, 2019. Marker on Paper. Original Doodle by SnapDragon X. All rights reserved. Like an elusive vapor, my reflection floats, then gently fades before my eyes.

SnapDragon Speaks: On Jealousy.

Reach, 2020. Pennsylvania. Original Photo by SnapDragon X. All rights reserved. Why do we get jealous? It's inevitable, really. Because for a time, in one way or another, we all feel it. She's so much skinnier than me. *pout* He has a summer house he never even uses. *scowl* They pop out a kid every... Continue Reading →

Want vs Need

In a world full of stimuli, we want everything. And with everything, frustration and regret comes. You start to double-check every decision and you keep comparing it to the endless potential. And for what? The biggest problem raises from the fact that we rarely analyze what we really need in life. We want this and... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On Listening.

I'm a bit under the weather, friends. My apologies for both a delayed and limited post. But I'm listening to my body; she's talking to me. She needs rest. She needs warmth. She needs time. I wish you and yours a comforting weekend. All of my love, SnapDragon

I need to vs I have to – Reblog

We do things every day. Some of them we enjoy doing, others to do because we have to and some we do because we need to. There is this thing I’ve noticed: whenever we have to do things, we sometimes feel worse compared to the things we need to do. Why is this happening? I believe this happens because...

The eye-opening decision

Believe it or not, we live most our lives blind. Of course, I’m not talking from a biological perspective, but from a perspective perspective. The fact that we live our own life has both advantages and disadvantages. The biggest advantage is that we control most of it (even more with huge courage). The biggest disadvantage...

We tend to keep circumstances permanent by holding grudge against them or by using them as excuses when in fact our mind is the one that needs some attention. Things are hard or easy based on how we see them. Let’s learn from the... Continue Reading →

Are we nothing but thoughts?

I believe we’re one stupid question away from unlocking our full potential. Even if today we need money, houses, relations, cars, jewelries, social status, vacations, anything and everything our society values, everything can be achieved through thought. I don’t know what that question is and that’s why I keep asking. Maybe one day I’ll find... Continue Reading →

Ego and Emotions

Yesterday this hit me: our emotions in a certain situation are not always triggered by that situation, but we don’t realize it. I know, I know… this doesn’t seem to be so much of a revelation. It’s obvious that sometimes we come with our emotional baggage in each new daily life. However, I believe there... Continue Reading →

Mindful Introspection

I often find myself full with strong feelings like anxiety or anger and even the most insignificant things can trigger an inappropriate response full of rage from my behalf. As I pointed in an older post, to get in control of my emotions I have to get in control of my thoughts. The process of... Continue Reading →

Overview about Emotions

As humans, we deal with countless emotions daily and some of them can change our mood and that affects our thoughts and our behavior. To better understand why this is happening and how to control our emotions, we need to understand what triggers them. Are we in complete control over our emotions? Not quite, but...

Knowledge is… power?

It is said that knowledge is power. If so, why do we get upset sometimes when we find out some things? I think that it’s because we sometimes have strong beliefs which get in conflict with the answers we are finding out by asking those questions. Ok, but why do we ask the questions if...
