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...

The Psychology of Greatness

Circumstances are momentary, but your mind is always there for you. 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...

The Loss Feeling – Reblog

   Have you ever wonder why do we get angry? I know it’s because of some situations or because of some people, but that is not the real reason. We get angry because of what we think about the situation or about the person, and most of the times it is connected with the feeling... Continue Reading →

How memories affect our present – Reblog

   I sometimes wonder how our past affects our present and in what way. I’m not talking about actions we did in the past which have some effects on our present. I’m talking about remembering things and situations. Our memories are as powerful in influencing our present feelings as our present day. This is how... Continue Reading →

Life and Bad Habits

   “A habit is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously.” - Wikipedia This short definition provides everything we need to know about a habit. In my opinion, the most important part is that habits tend to occur subconsciously. Because of this, I’m wondering how much control we really... Continue Reading →

Cussing and Mental Health

Is there a connection between the two? I was actually amazed once I started to observe and analyze what happens when people cuss (me included). In my culture, people tend to judge the ones who cuss as being rude or uneducated. However, it has nothing to do with that. Yes, an educated person will keep... Continue Reading →

How open are you to new ideas?

Changes are hard, especially the drastic ones. For example, if you’re used with a certain lifestyle, it will be very hard for you to change it. You’ll feel some holdback from your body simply because it gets you out of your comfort zone. This doesn’t mean that you’ll reject all new ideas, but I bet... Continue Reading →

A Mind Map towards understanding Yourself

Self-understanding it’s trickier than it might seem at first. If you don’t believe me, think about the thoughts that come through your mind. Do you know what triggers them? I’m often surprised by the sh*t that goes through my mind and that’s why I want to understand myself better. I need to know where those... Continue Reading →
