Signs That Your Friendship Is Over
“To everything there is a season and a time, to every purpose under heaven.” - Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. This recognisable quote is a clear message that all things come to an eventual end after serving their purpose, friendships being no exception. Some friendships last a lifetime, others simply fade, but there are those that test us and become our curse.
Achieve Better Work-Life Balance
Your life is saturated with assignments, deadlines, group work, extra-curricular activities and other pressures associated with work or school, whether you like it or not. Sometimes this load can be a bit stressful and leave you little room to relax and enjoy the other aspects of your life.
Five Problems With Choice
The first problem is to deny choice exists. This is the victim position. How this is done is to assign cause outside oneself. The payoff is that one gets to avoid being blamed.

The one thing you don't have a choice about is choice.
Victims have a lot of reasons for not altering the circumstances that bother them. The problem with this is that if the reasons are really true, victims wouldn't feel so bad about their circumstances.

People set it up so that it's not good to feel bad. One problem is that we think we are our emotions, and when they're not okay, we're not okay.
The last time I had a problem with anxiety was when I was in a large seminar doing a meditative exercise with my eyes closed. Suddenly I started to tremble and sweat. I had no idea why.
Getting Over Disappointment
Disappointment or failure can railroad the pursuit of a dream leaving behind a broken heart. Many have never recovered from said disappointment and have become shadows of what they had hoped and worked hard to achieve.
How To Smoke, Stay Fat And Be Happy
How long have you been trying to stop smoking? How long have you been beating yourself up for "not being able to"?
To the extent you've been torturing yourself with "I should stop" and continuing to smoke, that's been interfering with your experience with each cigarette. The paradox here is that the greater the interference, the more cigarettes it probably takes to give you satisfaction from smoking. If you really chose to smoke, and admitted loving it and everything about it, you'd probably smoke less.
Is There Anything You Really HAVE To Do?
You and I shrink rather than grow by experiencing much of our lives as compulsion, obligation, or duty, instead of acknowledging that we have a choice in the matter.
The Power Of Positivity
