Disappointements

I wonder why we are so keen on not disappointing others, but we have no real issues with disappointing ourselves… It really takes a toll on us, doesn’t it? Have you noticed how easy it is to just find excuses or get over the fact that we didn’t do what we ourselves planned to? Let […]

Comfort vs. Growth

What do you think of teens these days compared with your own self, back in the day? Have you thought about it? Are you able to assess how things have changed since you were young and life was filled with books and atlases compared to tablets and smartphones? It’s amazing how lazy children have become. […]

What’s the rush?

So… I saw this Instagram story with a young psychologist saying that she is trying to get rid of the habit of using her phone right before bedtime. The other night, I placed it on the cabinet which is slightly farther away from the bed. It was on silent mode. I sneaked into the covers […]

Monkey see, monkey do

We tend to blame people for imitating others, but when it comes down to it, isn’t life just that in the beginning? We imitated the adults when we start walking. It’s not like they sit behind us and put our feet one in front of the other. Or take laughing, for another example. No one […]

Respect me first. Love me later.

Don’t say the words. Show the feeling behind them before anything else. What do I mean by that? Definitely nothing as trivial as what love apparently is these days. I am talking about respect. Hardcore respect. People say respect is not a given. Instead it’s earned. That’s true. It’s also true that if you want […]

Why don’t we believe in…

…people giving out free stuff? As in, when we see it’s a new business trying to make its way through the market with a giveaway, why would you not trust it? Why is it that we only trust people who seem to have a benefit from helping us? Are they really that much more trustworthy?! […]

Growth and Change

Growing together means nothing more than being part of your partner’s change. That’s why we are so surprised of how someone changed when we meet them after a long time. It’s only because we didn’t witness their change throughout the time we weren’t together. We don’t always grow, but we do change constantly. Being next […]

Show it if you mean it

If you say you’re excited, I’ll believe you *if* you’re going to show it, too. If the behaviour doesn’t match the words, then questions will pop into my mind. 🧐 Don’t y’all feel the same?… Lately so many people say with the straightest of faces „I’m sooooo excited to do this and that”. How can […]

Payback

You know that saying that goes something like „I don’t get mad, I get even”? I don’t know who said it and, to be honest, I am too lazy right now to look it up (on a side note, if we didn’t have internet, I would have probably remembered who said it…). Question for this […]

Routine = Expectations

When you do the same things the same way every single day, you know how your day is going to unfold. I am not talking about planning your day. That’s something totally different. I mean doing the same things every day, in the same order. Routines are good. They give us a sense of comfort, […]
