Emotional Paralysis

Wall of Excitement
One of the issues I struggle with is something I call socially onset emotional paralysis. At first I thought I was the only one with this problem, but I’ve found in talking to others, that this is more common than I originally thought. Emotional Paralysis occurs most often in introverted people and many people also link it to depression, but I believe anyone can have this “condition.”

There are many different ideas about emotional paralysis and how to define it; however, it is most commonly associated with the inability to form or express one’s emotions. It is associated with depression because depressed people often have trouble showing or feeling emotion. Socially Onset Emotional Paralysis (we can call it S.O.E.P) is similar to this, but refers to a more specific disposition. Read More…

How Men and Women Handle Their Problems

Walking ConversationPlease take the provocative title of this post lightly. I don’t mean to imply that all women think the same way, nor do I believe I know how all women think. What the title instead implies is that, though all people are different and gender differences are not as clearly defined as many people think, there are certain distinctions that are uniquely common to one sex over the other.

One of these is the way in which men and women tend to resolve their problems and relieve stress. Men and women often get into arguments, especially with their relationship partners, because of a common miscommunication: the woman will be explaining a problem she has and the man will interrupt her with a solution. Though the guy is thinking that he is being helpful, this is not what the woman is looking for. Read More…

The Art of Love

I just read this quote and I thought it spoke to exactly what I have been mentioning. Love takes time. There are hundreds of different sayings about love and what it is and how to define it, but it is still one of the most difficult feelings to describe. It is also the most sought after feeling.

The Twisted Game of Telephone

This article takes on a different shape than the others so far. It is written as a fairy-tale story, but has a very important message for you to ponder: just were do all the inexplicable traditions in our lives come from?

Many beliefs are formed for good reason; however, inevitably these beliefs become changed and twisted to the point where the original purpose is lost completely. Similar to a game of telephone. Hopefully, the story will get you thinking about what rituals you hold dear to this day and why they are so important to you.

A Call for Educational Reform

In another post, I mentioned the state of education in the US and the world. I now have an article follow-up to that discussing the problems with just focusing on Math, Literature, Science, and History in schools. We cannot simply leave the burden of education on parents as we currently do unless parents are learning the best ways to raise children.

As I explain in the article, there is no right way to raise a child; however, I have seen far too many parents become clueless as to what values should be essential to their children’s development.

Do I Dare Disturb the Universe?

This entry is a bit more personal. I usually like to leave my personal experiences out of my entries; however, I am not sure this topic relates to everyone. So, rather than place this idea in a general context, I decided to focus on my own life. You can let me know if you have similar experiences.

That being said, the focus of this entry is on univeral balance. I am not a superstitious person, nor do I have a set belief about God or religion. I consider myself to be a spiritual, yet rational person. Even so, I have noticed that, throughout my life, I seem to have some kind of guardian protecting me from harm. Any time I get into a difficult situation, I can be pretty sure that it will work itself out in the end. I may not get exactly what I want, and I may not get through it scath free, but I will get through it nonetheless. Read More…

All We Need Is Love

First, let me say congratulations to president-elect Barack Obama. Subsequently, I would like to applaud John McCain for his efforts as well as his heartfelt concession speech.

That said, I would like to address the large elephant in the room: the race issue. I have recently heard some disheartening statements said in reference to Obama. I think it is very childish and ignorant to use racial slurs when about Obama considering how historic this election has been in terms of our progress as a nation. Regardless of where you stand on the issues, I think it is necessary to acknowledge the accomplishment this is for our nation. Read More…
