I wish that someday, somewhere, we’ll be able to understand each other as father and son

Keywords: Noah’s Entries , reddit repost

I go to the store and I see that fathers and their sons are able to connect well or their mothers connect well with their daughters. For me, I don’t know if I have that with my dad. I feel like that connection doesn’t work out at all. I don’t know why anymore. For the longest time, I strived to understanding what it means to connect with my dad. He’s tech savvy and I’m not that tech savvy. I know enough to understand how computers work and a little extra, but not as much as he does. What he talks about on a day to day basis just doesn’t interest me but it does to him. We’re like polar opposites and I hate that.

I personally can’t wait to give all my friends a hug

As most cities approach their second month of social distancing, most of us have found our ways of coping and maybe even settled into a new daily routine. Whether you’re working from home or in desperate search of new hobbies while you collect unemployment checks, chances are you’ve probably figured out how to spend time by yourself.

Relatable Reflections

I was busy with my chores when this mesmerizing art of the sky created by nature enthralled me, and I paused for a couple of minutes to appreciate its beauty and find peace in it. And at the very next moment, it was on my Instagram wall, etched there forever. I saw twenty such similar posts that day. This made me realize what gives us the utmost satisfaction is nature. Nothing is as peaceful as looking at the vibrant colors and patterns, listening to the soothing voices, feeling the softest materials, smelling the pleasant fragrances, and savoring the delicious edibles.

Along with the evolution of mankind, there has been an exponential growth in technology, food, and fashion. We are too busy in helping ourselves to grow to explore the evolving world around us. But in this process, are we giving enough time to ourselves? It is so ironic to say…

A Friend Will Help You Move, A True Friend Will Help You Move a Body (j/k ;) )

We’ve shared countless laughs, tears, smiles, giggles, frustrations, and basically every emotion under the sun. If you can think of an emotion, we’ve been through it together. I think our time, mine and yours, would be better spent telling you the things I’ve learned from our 24 years of friendship.

Read the (short, quick + easy) full post post to learn about Katie’s 4 simple lessons — to which she adds at the end:

There are so many other things I have learned from my friendships and relationships, but I want you all to actually read this…not open it, see that it’s 15 pages long, and then hit the X button. Until my next post, I’ll just be living the Dream…

 

Words that hurt

bereavement , death , grief , meaning , mourning , purpose , soulmates , widowed

Words that hurt: happiness, joy.

Phrases that hurt: ‘Rich would want you to be happy’, ‘I hope you’re enjoying…’, ‘May you find peace’, ‘this will help you heal’, ‘try and find something to smile about today’.

Phrases that help: ‘tell me about Rich’, ‘don’t hold it in’, ‘just be you’, ‘you are hurting’, ‘I wish I’d known him’.

And the best way to ask after someone experiencing profound bereavement? – ‘how is today?’ If you ask ‘how are you?’, then frankly you’re not really thinking about the person in front of you or at the other end of the phone. How the f*** do you think I am? Is the way we want to respond. But instead, of late, I just don’t bother responding at all. Because if they can’t imagine what the devastation of loss like this might feel like, and I haven’t got the energy to explain, even…

The importance of Language

Tamira Paleja

As I quote ‘If you don’t understand my silence … you will never understand my words’

My daughter Tamira has taught me that love has no language, if you want to understand and love a person there is no freakin… language barrier its the willingness to go beyond your thinking and want to understand someone who just can express.

When I am with Tamira I have no time to think anything except for her & sudd the jatapatapata language has started making sense. We exchange words with no meanings and still understand each other. Right from a 10 day old baby I have tried spending most of my time with her by just looking and reciprocating and now she does the same which is totally fun… The magic of understanding each other is beautiful and the fun times are just to precious, from getting up at 2.00 am at night…

Dating
can have extreme highs and lows. When I take a look back on some of my
relationships that didn’t work out, I noticed one thing that they all have in
common,I was not open about my needs early in the dating process. I was
just a go with the flow type girl and most of the times things didn’t flow my
way. What I’m sharing with you today are
fourconversations that I believe we all
should have at the beginningof the dating process. These
conversations give your possible partner
an understanding of what you are looking for and what they can expect from
you.

The pain Of Expressing Our Needs Versus Not Expressing Our Needs

Better relationship, Better Relationships, communication, life style, self improvement

VictoriaBoerStudio.com Official Blog

Most of us has not t been taught on how to express  our  needs also most of us has never been taught to think in terms of our needs , I can recall many  time that i think a friend or my mom should  automatically  understand my  needs and  when she  doesnt  i have a build of anger compounded inside me .  .

As i started learning how to communicate , things get  easier thou im a very direct person in term of saying what i need but this time around without violent . Most times  when we talk about what we need rather than want , we tend to get what  we want . There is a huge different between  needs and making a request .

We need to express what we need rather than talking about what is wrong .  , and the moment we do that …

Breaking Barriers: Overcoming Social Anxiety and Putting Myself Out There

Serendipity & Such

I wanted to be a social butterfly, but I was honestly more of a social moth.

By nature, I’ve never really been a fan of people. I don’t want to say I ‘dislike’ or ‘hate’ people, but I’m definitely an introvert that values my solitude. It’s funny to say that, given how talkative I was as a kid. So much so that I didn’t realize that sometimes I would really annoy or bother people (namely my older sister). So rather than a social butterfly, I guess you could say I was a social moth. I was friendly and talkative to the point that I was just overbearing and hard to tolerate. Eventually, I became more concerned with being a burden to someone or annoying them. But instead of finding a proper balance, I ultimately just solved the problem by not initiating conversation with people at all. Even if someone did…
