Not Ready to Listen

What can you really do when the person you are talking to is not ready to listen. How frustrating this can be. You explain and you simplify and you express yourself in different ways and you pour your heart out, with no result. It’s like you are talking to a wall. Hell, by now the wall would have talked after all this effort. So why is this happening? Continue reading

Let the Past Be in the Past

Many times we hold on to things from the past. From memories to emotions to sentimental objects.  And while we may convince ourselves that we have moved on and we are just holding on to something that meant a great deal to us, in fact we haven’t truly let go because we don’t want to. There is a part of us that still wants to hold on. And we continue living an illusion that we moved on. Continue reading

Is it Strength or Is it Weakness 

Many times we are faced with situations in our lives where we have to make detrimental decisions; decisions that will alter the path we are on. We may be aware of their importance while going through them. Other times, we realize their importance later, possibly after the fact. Maybe we do it on purpose; not making things a big deal. And maybe we are aware and we feel every emotion that comes our way. Regardless Continue reading

Is love everything?

Some say all you need is love. Love is everything. All the rest can be worked out. And some say, love is important but you need compatibility more and love can come with time.

And so the question is not are they hearing you, but are they listening to what you are saying? Are they paying attention to the meaning behind the words. Are you listening! Truly listening! Ask yourself.  Continue reading

Is it tiredness or laziness

It is easy to confuse our thoughts with our feelings. It is common practice to find reasons and or excuses as to why we do or do not do certain things. Some say it’s a cop out.

Obsession

There is no other way I can describe Obsession, than being a disease; a vicious one at that. How does one get infected and is there a cure. Can someone one day realize that they are far gone in this disease and get help. Honestly, I think it’s hard. It’s like being OCD, one is never born as such. You develop it with time and it can worsen with age if you are not too careful and keep it under control. So can becoming obsessed, it is developed with time and it can definitely get worse.  Continue reading
