The Meaning Of Your Life

A life is infinitesimal in the grand scheme of things. When you zoom the lens out, when you consider the enormity of existence. A life is but a speck in the vastness of time and space. A life is nothing. It matters not a jot. But when you zoom the lens in, past all of... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On The Dark.

Original Painting by SnapDragon X. Acrylic on Canvas. 2017. I’m afraid of the dark. Like, for real. And it’s not because I think there are trolls in the basement, or Civil War ghosts in the attic. (But—ahem—now that I’ve revived that thought, I might crawl into bed even earlier tonight.) (pulls the blanket up to... Continue Reading →

Internal Peace

Hi all, How have you been? It has been a long time since we last interacted here! I missed you all! I took a long-ish break from writing but not from thinking. So, we will meet here regularly now to discuss what I have been thinking about. I want to discuss what it means to... Continue Reading →

The Good Side of Emotions

Hi everyone, Welcome to another Sunday post about my quarantine reflections! This is turning into a weekly report of what I contemplate most on that given week. In my post last week (here), I talked about emotional ups and downs quarantine is causing us to experience. So, this week, I thought a bit more on... Continue Reading →

Love

Hi everyone, I have been thinking about emotions lately. Their depth, their intricacies, their flow. How they are much more powerful than logic, whether we admit to this or not. Then, I started thinking about the emotions that are especially more powerful than others, at least for me. Love is one of them. Love is... Continue Reading →

Where do frustrations come from?

Our inner universe is so complex that we end up having different thoughts and emotions without knowing where the hell they come from. Obviously, that’s where frustrations come from, but what actually triggers them? What creates them? Is there anything we can do about them? Should we do something about them? I believe we need...

The Impulse to Write

Does it ever happened to you to feel an impulse to write, even though the moments are not so appropriate? And even stranger, when you want to write, the words won’t come? It very often happens to me to just wander around and all of a sudden BOOM! Writing idea! And then I pounder on... Continue Reading →

Triggers are Everywhere

Did it ever happen to you to go peacefully through your day and them someone said some dumb sh*t that means something to you and that blew off your “peaceful day”? I’m sure it did, but how often does that happen? And why does it happen in the first place? It’s mainly because of our... Continue Reading →

Why is Fear so Important?

We’re always afraid of something. It’s part of our human nature and it’s a survival instinct. When we’re afraid of something we tend to avoid that thing or to run away from it, which will strengthen both the fear and our response to it. However, fear is just an emotion, just like joy. It’s not... Continue Reading →

Or maybe your social anxiety is so big that you don’t want to seek for help from fellow humans? Don’t worry, animals are there for you.    The animal-assisted therapy (AAT) is a...

The Dance/Movement Therapy

   Continuing the not-so-common types of therapies series, I’m writing a few words about the dance/movement therapy (also called dance movement psychotherapy in UK). “DMT (or DMP) is the psychotherapeutic use of movement and dance to support intellectual, emotional, and motor functions of the body. As a modality of the creative arts therapies, DMT looks at the correlation between movement and...

The Language of Emotions

   If you think about a particular emotion, how many words can you use to express it? How many words do you know to express a different side of an emotion? There are more than you might think.    I recently stumbled across a list of feelings with the associated words, and the list is... Continue Reading →

Your Feelings Are Overrated.

We are often told to act in alignment to what we feel. How we feel. For whom we feel. This notion of acting in alignment with our feelings can be a dangerous mindset. In fact, allow me to tell you that your feelings are completley overrated. They are unimportant. Look, there are only 2 reasons... Continue Reading →

Your Emotions are in Your Way

   A severe negative emotion interferes with the way we see our future. It can be so bad that we forget emotions are temporary and in those moments, we strongly believe that we’ll be in that state the rest of our lives. How stupid does that sound? And still, it’s very true.    Having a... Continue Reading →

Your Emotion is Your Energy

   Each action we make involves some energy, but where is all that energy coming from? You surely noticed that we feel more energized when we do certain actions compared with others even though no additional energy came in.    It seems that whenever we like something, we somehow find more energy to invest in...

Basic human emotions

   A colorful mind can create colorful emotions. Starting from the darkest ones to the most enlighten states, we often go through all the specter without us even realizing how many emotions we feel in the same time. But how many emotions are out there? This is a question tougher than we might expect because... Continue Reading →
