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 →

Finding My Voice

Provided by Danielle Davis from The Nurse's Heart “Flowers don’t open and close according to who is walking by. They open and show their beauty regardless.” - Rebecca Campbell A recent realization I have had is that I struggle with using my voice or "speaking my truth." I know I am not alone in this. I...

Together Is Better

'A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to dwell. Many a time he tried to attack them; but whenever he came near they turned their tails to one another, so that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them. At last, however,... Continue Reading →

How To Be An Attractive Man

In our post industrial, feminist world, its not as clear a it used to be what a man is or what he should be. We live in a world, in which feminist groups often associate man's masculinity with 'tyranny' and as a result believe in degrading men's masculinity. Centuries ago, a mans duty was power...

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 →

The Self-fulfilling Prophecy

   This is a term used in psychology for events happening because we’re expecting them. "A self-fulfilling prophecy is a prediction that directly or indirectly causes itself to become true, by the very terms of the prophecy itself, due to positive feedback between belief and behavior." - Wikipedia    In simpler words: your predictions will come...

Fear – our biggest obstacle?

   Does it happen to you that whenever you have a great idea about something, immediately your mind is filled with automatic negative thoughts about why it can’t get real? And if this happens, do you find solutions to counter the negative thoughts or you just drop the idea? If you drop the idea, I... Continue Reading →

Are we living in the future?

   I’m not going to try to answer this question from a technological point of view, but rather from a psychological one. How often are we saying to ourselves that when we’ll get something we’ll be happier? How many times we’re letting the tomorrow interfere with the today? How many opportunities to be happy we’re...

Addictions

   All of us have addictions, but do we realize it? When I say addictions, I’m not talking only about substances (like drugs, nicotine or alcohol), I’m also talking about addictions to actions (like playing video games, watching movies or reading books) and addictions to certain people.    I think that, in essence, addictions are...

A few words about The Law of Attraction

  Have you ever wondered how this law of attraction works? In theory, if you have positive thoughts, the universe will give you positive things, and if you have negative thoughts, the universe will give you negative things. It’s pretty straight forward, right?    Let’s have a closer look. I don’t know how much the... Continue Reading →

The Frustrations Bubble

  Dealing with automatic thoughts is not easy, but ignoring them can create the frustrations bubble. Basically, those automatic thoughts we ignore create feelings that we ignore. Ignoring them won’t make them disappear, instead they will pile up into a bubble until it’s too big to handle and then it explodes.    When a bubble... Continue Reading →

Thoughts about Movies

   In my opinion, movies are the closest thing to a complete expression of an idea. A movie has words, images, music and behavior and all together can get the closest to what it’s in its creator’s mind. If we think about this, sometimes a movie can have an only purpose – to get that... Continue Reading →

The Self-Pride Defense

   Most of the times we look too judgmental at people that have too much pride. When this happens, I’m asking myself what this self-pride means and where it comes from. Every time something happens and we don’t like it, some sort of denial kicks in and some automatic thoughts go through our head, like... Continue Reading →

The Friendzone Dilemma

This place might be the most hated place on Earth because it is seen as some sort of end of the line. Because of this, I think we should try to understand what this place really is and how we should behave if we get there based on what we truly want. What this friendzone... Continue Reading →

The Pleasure and Fear Theory

   Many times I’ve wondered what are our true reasons we behave as we do. Is it our purpose in life? What a purpose in life really represents? Is it going for something or is it running from something? Based on what we decide how should we act in every moment?    I’m proposing a... Continue Reading →

The Impact of Having Expectations

   Wondering about how and why our feelings are changed, I bumped into another potential reason. Expectations are the ones that bring us down when they are not met and they also bring a little joy into our lives when everything happens as we predicted. Is this a good or a bad thing?    Of...

The Loss Feeling

   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 →
