No wonder our planet is turning into a cesspit, if it is allowed to pour one’s emotional sewage all over the place!

What are friends for?

A true friend is not a true friend to Mary, John and Bob. A true friend is a true friend to everyone. That is his/her nature. Read more: Take care, Helena Smole

To revenge or to forgive or to ignore

“The weak revenge, the strong forgive, the intelligent ignore.” The saying came at the right moment, for I was entangled in an irrelevant matter that was best ignored. I took some time to ponder about the wise words and realized that the upper words of wisdom need examples. Read more: Take care, Helena Smole

The Curious Incident with the Dog in the Daytime

In my opinion people, who are inclined to fall mentally ill, are especially sensitive to negative energy spread by the downers or the so called glass-is-half-empty people. Read more: Take care, Helena Smole

Rush Hour Society

There is no point in hurrying, for one forgets half of the things to be done - in the very process of haste. Or one gets spilled over with hot coffee. What a waste! Read more: Take care, Helena Smole

The irresistible extremes

It is true that Aristotle wrote about the golden middle or in other words about moderation in all things, but this is usually the toughest way of life. Exaggeration on the other hand is a lot easier. Why? Because one does not have to think and make decisions about how to reach the golden middle. One simply exaggerates in everything and makes oneself and others believe that one is right.

Things that make me feel safe

A little dessert from my creative workshop - just for you:

The Inexhaustible Wish for Others to Change. Have you felt it too? It is strong, isn't it? And repeatedly we are being told by wise men and women that we should change ourselves not the people around us. I believe in that too. Only sometimes I think it can be overrated in the sense that I confuse it with something else: setting some limitations in order to protect myself (self-defense). Read more:

Work for people or work against them

In the end it is not so important what we do, as long as it is legal. It is the attitude we do it with that counts. Either you work for people or you work against them. Read more:

You, Mental Illness and the Rest of the World

Having been faced with a mental illness, there is always the danger of going to extremes. Either one closes up on himself/herself, becomes convinced that nobody understands him/her and strives to resolve the problem on his/her own, which is usually too difficult. Or one expects of his/her doctors, relatives and friends to do everything, even his/her part, which would be the other extreme. Read more: Take care, Helena Smole

Winter Depression

Last but not least, when depression is so deep that one cannot find the strength to get out of bed, visualizing spring scenery can be helpful. It might give us just enough energy to be able to get out of bed and catch a glimpse of that list of activities on the wall. Read more: Take care, Helena Smole
