13 Signs You Are Disrespecting Yourself (And How To Stop)

Image
Every relationship we build with people is pretty much reflected by our previously established bond with our true self. If you learn to respect yourself and treat your body and mind properly, others will respect you as well. It is amazing, yet scary how almost everything that happens in our life depends on us. We are the ones who create the image we wish to present in front of people. So, by listening to our inner feelings, emotions, and thoughts, we become more intimate with ourselves and eventually comfortable in our own skin. Unfortunately, most of the people have a hard time accepting some parts of their genuine nature. They resist to embrace their flaws, they’re ashamed of their darkest parts and hate their ‘weirdness’. Eventually, their (un)intentional, masochistic behavior leads to self-doubt, self-hatred, lack of confidence and disrespect. Here are some important signals that indicate you’re disrespectful towards your true self you should never avoid: 1. Y

4 Phrases Manipulators Use to Make You Think They’re Harmless (And How to Respond)

Image
You may not realize when you are being manipulated, since manipulative people are good at what they do. These people use particular phrases that make them seem like they are totally harmless. Here’re the common phrases manipulators use, as well as how to stop them in their tracks: #1 “You are acting crazy.” They want to get into your head as well as make it seem like you do not know what you are talking about. Whenever you try to bring up a problem you have, they’ll usually respond with “You are acting crazy”, or say something similar. These people can also say that you are irrational. Solution: Stay collected and calm. Even though you may get more and more frustrated, you should state your position calmly and clearly and avoid getting caught up in attempting to prove that you are being rational. #2 “See what you made me do.” It’s among the most common phrases that manipulators use. It does make them seem like they aren’t in control of their actions. They wa

5 Smart Comebacks to Shut Down Toxic People and Deal With Manipulators (It’s Verbal Abuse)

Image
We all have experienced those people who spew venom. We wish that they weren’t on this planet, or at least not on our side of the planet. But sometimes we have no choice in the matter and we have to deal with them. How do we keep them at bay? Here are a few things we can do and say in response to their toxic behavior. 1. “Are you talking to me?”   Confront them and put them on the spot. 2. Ignore them. Their ego will not know what is going on, and they will likely feel disturbed. 3. “I’m sorry you feel that way.” No you aren’t, but say you are. Let them see that they can’t get to you. 4. “You must be having a bad day.” Here you are being gracious to them, putting yourself in their position. They won’t know what to make of it. 5. “I will not stoop to your level.” Let them know you are annoyed, but don’t lose your cool. If you do, they will only try harder to unearth you because they see that they are getting to you. See more:           5 Smart Comeback

25 Secrets of Adulthood That I Had to Learn the Hard Way

Image
When it comes to being an adult, you never stop learning things. As a child, you might think adults know everything but the truth is ‘more’ and ‘everything’ are nowhere near the same. While I am still learning myself, sometimes sharing the things you have learned with others can help them along their journey as well. Sure, some of these things you may have already learned but they are all things I had to learn the hard way. We tend to trust too quickly and move to fast in this life, slow down and consider things before moving forward. If learning the hard way can be avoided, I promise it will make things a lot easier. 1. Being an adult sucks. If I could go back in time and be a kid again I would. Being an adult is not fun. You have to do everything for yourself and deal with the stress of life. Sure, you might not miss being a kid as much as some people do but you need to know that growing up is not all roses and daisies. 2. Things usually get worse before they

Psychologists Say There Are 9 Different Kinds Of Intelligence. You’re Smarter Than You Think.

Image
If you’re a psychologist, professor, and researcher at one of the world’s most prestigious universities then you’re likely very intelligent. Howard Gardner is all of that and happens to work at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education where he studies, of all things, intelligence. Over the years he’s done brain research and interviewed all sorts of people, from geniuses and prodigies to victims of stroke and those with autism. His work eventually led him to develop the theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI Theory for short) which challenged traditional beliefs and definitions concerning what intelligence means. Traditionally, intelligence is viewed as a fixed amount of cognitive capacity that people are born with. It consists of only logic and language abilities, and a person’s intelligence level can’t be changed over their lifetime. Gardner’s MI Theory stands in direct contrast. Instead, he posits that individuals have different amounts, abilities, and uniq

Men Are Subconsciously Looking For These 8 Things In a Woman

Image
Did you know there is a biological explanation for why men seem to show preference for specific women? Your heart races. You get sweatier. You keep swallowing, and it’s hard to focus on the words you’re stringing together to form a sentence because your head is buzzing with a concoction of feel-good chemicals. Those initial waves of attraction can knock you off your feet. More often than not, the first powerful feelings you experience for someone you’re attracted to seem inexplicable and maybe even nonsensical. Why do we latch on to some people the way we do and not others? Is it just some ineffable, spiritual connection? The truth is, attraction isn’t random. Science can explain a lot of why we feel what we feel for a person who catches our eye. As it turns out, even when he isn’t aware of it, a man often gets romantically involved with a woman he sees has certain qualities that are biologically coded to mean “healthy” and, by extension, “fertile.” He may think he i

Once upon a time, a young man and woman met, gazed into each other’s eyes, kissed, and knew for certain that they were supposed to be together forever. In the subsequent days, weeks and months everything fell into place just as they had anticipated. He was perfect in her eyes, and she was perfect in his. Oh, it’s the majestic harmony of young love! When two souls who barely know each other believe they know everything that they must know to live happily ever after in their own blissful bubble.

There’s nothing quite like having a big sister. An ally in life, who you have shared all your experiences with, a big sister can be your best friend, your most honest critic, your second mom and a personal hero.

How to Quit Feeling Responsible For Others’ Happiness

Image
Taking responsibility for the happiness of others is without a doubt an immense cause of anxiety. Sensitive and caring people naturally want the people around them to be happy, and looking out for others is typically believed to be a character strength. However, this strength may sometimes morph into a weakness, where we find ourselves turning into people-pleasers in order to make them happy, and this will often turn into a massive source of anxiety. How Taking Responsibility for Others’ Happiness Causes Anxiety The issue usually starts out innocently enough. For a whole host of reasons, we care, and we want others to be happy and feel that the responsibility for their happiness rests on our shoulders. That’s why we end up doing everything in our power to ensure that they are happy. However, the people we care about often still end up unhappy since suffering is an inevitable part of life. This, in turn, causes us to feel a sense of guilt as if we have failed them,

Have You Ever Wondered Why Your Body Does These 7 Random Things?

Image
Most people don’t stop to think about why they yawn or sneeze or get goosebumps. Turns out our body is actually using these actions as defense mechanisms. The mechanism behind these actions are complex and here is a list of actions that our bodies do to keep us safe: 1. Yawning While this action is associated with people not getting enough sleep or being bored, a 2014 story proved otherwise. Yawning is reportedly our bodies way of cooling down the temperature of the brain. 2. Sneezing This action helps our bodies get rid of external, unwanted irritants like dust, dirt etc and keep them away from our respiratory system. 3. Tearing Up Often associated with sadness and emotions, tearing up actually serves many other purposes. Cleaning the eyeballs and keeping unpleasant stimuli away are just of the most basic reasons. 4. Wincing When exposed to loud noise, wincing occurs as an evolutionary trait of protecting us from oncoming unpleasant situations. 5. S

4 Signs You Love Someone Who Doesn’t Deserve You

Image
Lasting relationships are built on mutual trust, love, and respect. It’s a constant give-and-take. When one person is always the one having to compromise or sacrifice, it can lead to resentment. If your partner constantly puts himself before you, is self-centered, or isn’t concerned with how you feel, they probably don’t deserve you. It’s often too true that we don’t know what we have until it’s gone. No matter how hard you try, you can’t change someone. If they can’t appreciate you for who you are, they don’t deserve your love. Here are four signs you love someone who doesn’t deserve you: 1. They Belittle You If your partner constantly criticizes you or belittles you, not only do they not care about your feelings, they actually enjoy hurting you. Someone who makes fun of your appearance, your weight, your job, your dreams, or your beliefs isn’t worth your time. Their mean-spirited comments are truly intended to hurt you. A person who loves you would never want to t

I Know It’s Hard, But When Someone Decides You’re Not ‘The One’, You Move On

Heartbreaks, losses, breakups we’ve all been through one. It feels like suddenly your whole wide world, everything you’ve built, everything you fought for is now crashed into tiny pieces and eventually turned into ashes. There’s nothing more painful and gut-wrenching than ending a relationship you that thought was a two-way street. There’s nothing more hurtful than knowing that your partner’s feelings about you are changed. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than realizing that you’re simply not the one. But, when someone cold-bloodedly suddenly decides to cut you off and erase you from their world, don’t let them force you to question yourself. Have respect for yourself enough to simply back off and focus on your life. Say everything you have to say. Make yourself clear, but don’t hang around, don’t look back, and don’t let the sorrow take you down the gutter. I know it hurts like hell, but try to get a hold of yourself and continue doing what you were

People Who Like To Be Alone Have These 12 Special Personality Traits

Image
We all know someone who truly thrives among the company of others. They are often described as the life of the party, and purposely plant themselves right in the center of the action. They need frequent human interaction and may experience feelings of sadness and isolation when left to their own devices. For a loner, the complete opposite is true. It’s not that they dislike or hate being with other people, but they focus more on quality over quantity when it comes to their own personal relationships. They like to take their time and develop deeper, longer lasting connections with a select few, versus having a large number of casual acquaintances. Time is also extremely important to a loner, so they want to make sure they’re spending it wisely. For a loner, alone time is not only a desire, but an absolute necessity in maintaining a healthy sense of balance and sanity. Which type of person best describes you? Do you prefer to be alone, or in the company of others? H
