This great give away is just for someone like me who has a problem in her adult age with acne. If anyone can help, give advice I would appreciate it greatly.

Do you have friends?


Here I am 2010“I am very sympathetic to others and sensitive with others because I am able to put myself in their shoes.”

Yes, it is nice to have friends. But what is a friend? When I was younger I was a loner and now that I am older I am a loner. When I was little I also thought that I had to buy friends and buy gifts for them. Now that I am older I realize how few and far between a real friend is.
“Short visits make life long friends.” Yes indeed they do. I use to be the person to go here and go there to meet with friends…then one day I just stopped doing it. What did I find out. I had two real friends, Samantha and Iris. What a wake up call for me.
In the past three years I have had to move in and out of places that I lived at. Until my last move it was just me and one other person. My last move, I am so grateful to my family for helping me. What a joy and relief that was. I can proudly say my best friends are my family.
I also am on the internet a lot and networking, not to sell anything but to learn from others. I have Cheril, Deb, and Bobbi to be ever grateful for my new-found friendships.
Real friends are hard to come by. You can count them on one hand.

Setting Boundaries Lesson 101


Set boundaries. Many of us get ill because we let everyone into our personal space, controlling us and advising us, or else we are doing everything for them, all the while ignoring ourselves. If someone thinks they know what is best for you, even if he is “smarter” than you or more powerful, you can still refuse their unsolicited suggestions and do it your way. Just say “thanks but no thanks” and figure it out for yourself. Another way we let people in our personal space is feeling sorry for them and “matching them”. You can help best by being neutral and being yourself! You do not have to take on their pain to help them heal. Boundary setting is one of the most healthful things you can do for yourself. Decide what is acceptable for you to do and what is not, and then stick to your mandate. It is not uncaring to set boundaries. What is healthful for you is ultimately healthful for everyone else, too!

No Wrong Response
Experiences Shape Your Reactions

Our individual reactions to events are shaped by what we ourselves have experienced in our own lives.

Our view of the universe is largely determined by our experiences. It is when we are caught off guard by the spontaneity of existence that we are most apt to respond authentically, even when our feelings do not correspond with those of the multitude. Events that arouse strong emotions with us or are surprising in nature can be disquieting, for it often is in their aftermath that we discover how profoundly our histories have shaped us. The differences that divide us from our peers are highlighted in our reactions when these diverge from the mainstream, and this can be highly upsetting because it forces us to confront the uniqueness of our lives.

When our response to unexpected news or startling ideas is not the same as that of the people around us, we may feel driven by a desire to dismiss our feelings as irrational or incorrect. But reactions themselves are neither right, nor wrong. The forces that sculpted the patterns that to a large extent dictate our development are not the same forces that shaped the development of our relatives, friends, colleagues, or neighbors. There is no reason to believe that one person’s reaction to a particular event is somehow more valid than another’s. How we respond to the constant changes taking place in the world around us is a product of our history, a testament to our individuality, and a part of the healing process that allows us to address key elements of our past in a context we can grasp in the present.

Life’s pivotal events can provide you with a way to define yourself as a unique and matchless being, but you must put aside the judgments that might otherwise prevent you from gaining insight into your distinct mode of interpreting the world. Try to internalize your feelings without categorizing or evaluating them. When you feel unsure of the legitimacy of your reactions, remember that cultural, sociological, spiritual, and familial differences can cause two people to interpret a single event in widely dissimilar ways. Examining your responses outside of the context provided by others can show you that your emotional complexity is something to be valued, for it has made you who you are today.

Workaholism and Burn Out © 2008


Posted on Article Base:http://www.articlesbase.com/career-management-articles/workaholism-and-burnout-468840.html

In western culture it is easy to get caught up in the fast paced hype of current trends. It seems that there is not enough time to do that which we set out to do. Our tasks lists are longer than our meals with our families. Sitting down to enjoy our families or nurture ourselves is becoming a thing of the past. Unless we stop, look, and listen to how we are really doing or feeling deep inside. I am a single mother of a teenager and I know from firsthand how to be an over responsible workaholic. Being a single mom puts me in a position of being the super woman. I have to cook, clean, organize, pay bills, go to work, take care of my daughter, be the absent father, among other things I am suppose to be or do because of my position of being a single parent. I dove into my career as an entrepreneur twelve years ago. I am in the service oriented business. My passion was to meet the needs of my clients and for twelve years I did exactly that. What I did not plan on was over working led me to burn out. I was forced to work so that I can provide and live a good life for my daughter. I thought that money was easier if I worked hard and was never home. I even worked two other jobs to make ends meet. What I found out is that my body can only do that for so long and then I got some sort of illness. This is when depression set in for me and it seems to be the highest emotional illness among single parents. I wanted to be the tough mom and the one who could “do it all” and prove to the world that I can do anything! Well, that was all wrong. The workaholic and burnout came together and I crashed. I hated my every day life, and I hated going to work, and I hated what I use to love to do. Personally and professionally I thought I had it made. Wrong again. My focus was on meeting the needs of my clients and I neglected myself and everyone else around me, including my daughter. She did not deserve that but I felt I had no choice in the matter. we all have choices and I finally took a long look at what I had been doing with my life and how it affected the lives of those around me. Yes, I would have done things differently, but I guess it was my time to learn that over working and burnout became a blessing. Why was it a sign of a blessing? Well, once I realized that I was an over doer, I took that break I needed and realized I am a better person for having gone through all what I did. I want to help others who work too much and I want them to get the help they need before they feel guilty or regret some of the things I did. My motto: “Live with No Regrets”. My advice to avoid burnout is to read articles now before it happens. Look for the signs written. If you have lost your lust for life and you are negative every day, get some help. Depression either has set in or you need to get help for your depressed thoughts. When you are depressed it affects others even if you do not think it does. My only wish is that whether you are a single parent or not, over working and burnout usually go hand in hand please do not wait until its too late to get the help you need. Stop, look, and listen to the real you on the inside. Above all remember there is a higher power that cares enough about you that, “this too shall pass.”
