Social - Fake Friendships

These situations have been bothering me alot
Or they used to disturb me during the past years.

I am no longer helping and listening to others tooo much
Because by doing so, I would tend to
Forget about myself and my OWN needs.

So if this is OR a similar situation is troubling you

CONSIDER :
If that Friendship is worth keeping...
----- OR -----
If you have to let go.

Other thing important to remember is that...
Even if you cannot...
Save a romantic relationship keep the friendship
Save the friendship carry no guilty no faults
You did everything you could have done
To save it.

You are not being selfish by doing so
And also leave all that either closed
and/or cleared up from any missunderstandings
That way you won't stress as much
and you will have more peace of mind.

Finally, what I mean is
You can indeed help others
But definately keep an eye on yourself
Focus on yourself
And let no one affect you.

Have a great week.

World - Distracted Driving Awareness

Today I was around Youtube and I bumped into a video
About Texting and Driving.
Followed by that I found several (not to say a LOT)
Of articles about this subject.

Somehow related to this
there are other topics
Such as Distracted driving and also, Drunk driving.

My purpose here and NOW
and from now on is to open your eyes to this reality :

You have time for everything
To have fun, to be serious, to study
To dream, to work, to go out...

Don't OVER DO.
You have a whole life ahead of you
I am sure you do not want it
to flash in front of your eyes
Nor that it ends early.

Also , I am sure that
You don't want any injuries in the future
Or even a mourning family.


TO AVOID THIS,
Proper steps must be taken
Security and driving must be the priority
Awaneress (even tho some are violent)
Is never enough

A seat belt CAN save your life
and prevent you from accidents
Not texting others while driving
Will make you 100% focused on your driving!

Never put that as second task
But put DRIVING as first
If you do so, you will remain safe
Otherwise you won't

Consequences are often fatal
It takes just a second, one little distraction.

Another subject is texting
You can TEXT any time
You can answer that call anytime
And explain everything with TIME

So this is no joke
Many, many acidents could have been avoided
Could have been prevented
Many persons
Could have lived on to this day.

Religion - God's Message I

Let Him speak to you

Listen everyone...

He says :

Do not hold onto anything that insults him
And do not deny Our Lord, Our Father
As one who denies Him here on Earth
Will be denied by Him in the Heavens.

I do not listen to any song that insults or puts Him to shame
Personally I follow no fashions nor trends
Look on what they do to each one of you!

Be yourself, your true SELF
Let no fame nor influence bind you,
let no one to control your Will nor poison you.

" Unbreakable Will
Unshakable Faith
Unconditional Love
This is what you need ".

-- Life.


"Then you will know the truth,
and the truth will set you free."

John 8:32

That Knowledge, that Truth will cleanse your eyes.
This is what you need to know
.

Allow yourself to be close to God
(For such, no Church in this Earth is needed)

Because if you are close to Him
You shall be free from any chain
And He will be there!

I am sure. And I believe.
Also, talk to Him from inside your heart
An open heart. About your sins and mistakes
You will be understood and guarded from harm.

I shall leave here one worship song :
DMX - Lord give me a sign

The Lord will not fail.
Blessed be!

Job - How to create a survey

I am going to give you some tips that I learned
While I was in schoool on how to create a survey ;
I eventually , and also, learned more
While working as someone who does opinion surveys
To people on the phone.

A) It is preferable to start off with questions
that bring interest to the other person and
that do not scare or intimidate him/her
on the other side of the line.

B) Avoid personal questions
or tematics that offer more resistance of answer
Such as polithics, money or sexuality.

C) Place each question in the same subject
To avoid confusion and wastes of time.

D) Variety in the way you create/say/start
Each question is needed.

Types of Questions

- Closed
(Yes OR No)

- Open
(Why? - They often require an opinion
or a more developted answer)

- Semi-Open
(Contain Yes AND Why)

Avoid...

E) Introducing two questions in one;

F) Asking "Why" very oftenly ;

G) Formulating questions in the negative form.

Social - Eating Disorders : Music

I was searching for songs
about this subject that personally
has been in my head for quite some days
and on which I wrote about.

I found some songs on which
I believe they have a strong message
And on which I hope they aren't triggering.







I leave to you, also, a very touching video from a 4 year old.
Yes, a four year old!
Listen carefully.

<3


THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER YOU

YOU ARE UNIQUE !

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO STOP IT .


<3 And my words to add :

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL,

No matter how much you weight!

STAY SAFE AND STAY HEALTHY *

I am here if you ever, ever,
EVER need someone to talk with.
To reach me you can search

For me on my youtube page... Sy0592
Or contact me here on the tab "Contact us!"
<3 We have our facebook page also.
We are here for YOU.

Please take care
And stay strong xx

Suicide - A Letter for the Speechless and Hopeless

Dear _________ ,

You certainly have and will have a lot to live for.
Do not back down nor give up in dificulties that appear
They are mere temporary things.
Never ever give up fighting in this life.
We all are warriors one way or another
We all struggle to survive and aim for something
If you do not know, YOU WILL.

Everything has its proper time to happen.
Here and between worlds.

A Verdade comanda a Vida (Truth commands Life)
The Truth is that you will make it through and you will live to tell
Even your worst moments and dificulties and how that made you
A stronger and wiser, developted person.

You will be rewarded - you see
Better than knowing others, know yourself
To afterwards meet other people.
Open your arms to your life.

Do not ever see loneliness as an end or obstacle
But as a chance to grow and developt your inner self
A start for something new, a chance for a change
A chance to find someone who can treat you better
Or treats you right as you deserve.


You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe,
Deserve your love and affection.

-- Inspiring Lotus

Who may/must like and love you?
Ones who do like you and love you
By seeing you in your own and true colours

Ones who trully do, will put aside your flaws.
Believe in yourself. I know you can do it, I know you can do this!
Never kiss your life goodbye
And leave behind any idea for giving up in any way.

Leave behind - Life´s Advice

My advice for today takes simple steps...

You will need :

+ 10 (OR more 3) Rocks OR stones AND another stone
(Total of 14)

+ BLACK, BLUE (OPTIONAL) and a RED ink marker.

+ To be in a place near a river or beach

----

Step 1 :
Go to a beach or river.
You won't need a swimsuit or a bikini for this
Only if you planned previously on going to the beach ;)

Step 2 :
You can go with friends to do this
Yet, this procedure would be better done alone
You need concentration and no distractions.

Step 3 :
Grab your stones one by one and with the BLACK marker write down
Your problems which can be TEN or more...

Step 4 (OPTIONAL)
Grab THREE stones and one by one and in BLUE write down
Your wishes.

Step 5
Grab in only one stone and in RED
Make a single "X" in the middle.

Step 6
Throw the stones with black one by one
And think about the problems fading away
Or being solved already.
Afterwards throw the stone with the "X" in RED.
As for the blue ones, keep them near you.

Step 7 :
Pray (if you do not know how, speak to Him)
They will be solved, I have Faith in it.

Meaning of Black
The bad habits and problems you had.

Meaning of Blue
What you want to achieve.

Meaning of Red
Admiting and letting go.
Redemption, "X" marks the spot,
Leaving what is bad behind.


Step 8
Leave the place without hesitating
Nor looking back.
Take your three stones written in blue.

I say :
" May you obtain what you want
Leave your troubles and what harms you behind
May them be washed and taken away by the sea
And taken to God, for them to be solved".

My prayers are with you.

Tips for a better Life - Life´s Advice

I found this post online so I decided to share it with you...
Note : All the content belongs to its rightful owner!
SOURCE : Pravsworld.com
I highly advice it, it is a great website!

Tips for Better Life

1. Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day.
And while you walk, smile.

2. Sit in silence
For at least 10 minutes each day.

3. Sleep for 7 hours.
(Or eight hours which is the daily recommended I think)

4. Live with the 3 E’s — Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
(Which I absolutely agree and once you have it
Others shall notice)

5. Play more games.

6. Read more books than you did the previous year.

7. Make time to practise meditation, yoga, and prayer.
They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.

8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.

9. Dream more while you are awake.

10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants
and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

11. Drink plenty of water.

12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
(Which I call making a good action per day)

13. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.

14. Forget issues and do not dwell in the past.
Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past.
That will ruin your present happiness.
Concentrate the mind on the present moment.
(It is very, very important, point 14)

15. Don’t have negative thoughts on things you cannot control.
Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

16. Realise that life is a school and you are here to learn.
Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear
And fade away like algebra class
But the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

17. Eat Breakfast like a King,
Lunch like a Prince
and Dinner like a Beggar.
(Very wise)

18. Smile and laugh more.

19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
Don’t hate others.

20. Don’t take yourself so seriously.
No one else does.

21. You don’t have to win every argument.
Agree to disagree.

22. Make peace with your past
So it won’t spoil the present.

23. Don’t compare your life to others’.
You have no idea what their journey is all about.
Don’t compare your partner with others.

24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

25. Forgive everyone for everything.

26. What other people think of you is none of your business.

27. GOD heals everything.

28. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

29.Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick.
Your friends will. Stay in touch.

30. Get rid of anything
That isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

31. Envy is a waste of time.
You already have all you need.

32. The best is yet to come.

33. No matter how you feel,
Get up, dress up and show up.

34. Do the right thing!

35. Call your family often.

36. Your inner most is always happy.
So be happy.

37. Each day give something good to others.

38. Don’t over do.
Keep your limits.

39. When you awake alive in the morning,
Thank GOD for it.

40.Don’t be more calculative
In your life for all things.

Self Injury - Tanning

Hello everyone!

Life is starting to get what most people call a tan
It is great, specially if you have some marks
Like stretch marks or scars caused by self injury or any accident
Nature CAN help you cover some of your scars
Any others, check the post Self Injury - Cover scars?.

Anyways and as a sidenote I do not intend in any ways
For these post to be a help or an incitation on self injuring
I never do that and that is never the point of this Blog.
BUT as a way for recovered cutters to know how to conceil their marks
For important events or when they want to get a job...
...Such as myself.

More... as I said, Sun and even the water can help you.
Water cleasens and cleans you. Take it as refresh,
As a time to reconsider about your life and balance.

Imagine your burdens to go along with the tides and waves.

And by Tanning I mean no artificial tanning
Such as when your skin gets a brown to dark brown or orangy tone.

Search for creams that gradually bronze your skin
I have one (and I do not mean to advertise now!)
Called NUTRIBRONZE by L´ORÉAL which can be an example
Plus, that one exists for both face and body.

Note : While using creams always distribute around your skin
And never in only one spot because what can happen
Is that one spot gets darker than the rest.

Final advice : Walk with confidence
Forget your issues or self injury in the past
Everyday is a brand new day
For a brand new start.

Great vacations to you !

Self Injury - Embracing your body

As I mentioned previously, people found out.
I was the "not shy but quiet type of girl"
They did not immediately realized the situation, the marks
And how serious it could BE or could HAVE BEEN back then.

I would spend most of the schoolbreaks in top of the staircase
Writing. Just writing my heart and soul out
About anything and everything.

Before, I used to bother covering up the cuts or covering up the scars
Because I would feel ashamed OR it would bother myself
By thinking of how the others would think when they see the marks.

If anyone asks I most definately tell the truth.
I have nothing to hide anymore!

I am going to leave you this quote...

If fear is cultivated it will become stronger,
If faith is cultivated it will achieve mastery.

-- John Paul Jones

Why this quote?
Shall we put it this way :

+ If you cultivate Faith in the thought that you WILL no longer self harm
You will achieve it from time to time,
As Faith hands to hands with Will
It eventually will set you free from Self Injury.
You are Master of your Destiny
And not otherwise. If you do not believe it,
Try it and tell me how it went.

- Yet, if you cultivate Fear in the thought and goal of stopping SH
It will become stronger and drain your will, corrupt your faith
And mostly interrupt your Recovery.

It is a matter of thinking and controlling your thoughts
To righteous directions.

Embracing the body :
After this, embracing your body will come along
In a graduate way.

Be aware that the marks you have some will fade with time
And deeper cuts will still be there
Think of them now like scars from a battle...
A battle against yourself and your thoughts.
Let me say : It is over now .

Show yourself to the world.
It is the hardest step to a self injurer
But utter sign of recovery.
I done it and no longer have shame of wearing
Tank tops or t-shirts.

From now on your mission would
And will be showing to other former self harmers
What you found and what you overcame.

Peace be with you.

Relationships - Why they fail

Good afternoon everyone!

The subject I bring for you today is...
"Why do some relationships do not work out?"

In this I mean in a LDR to non-LDR relationships.
I want to help you!
Any feedbacks, my contact is on the blog.

A ) Expectations aren't discussed.
You need to talk with your partner about what you expect
Specially in a Long Distance Relationship
No one guesses what you are thinking.

B ) Secrets are kept in between
Such thing is like poison :
Slow but destroys and kills.
Plus it gives out a environment of no trust between the two
So, for the sake of your relationship, keep things honest.

C ) Not telling the truth
Also known as Lying,
There will come a time when your significant other
Will not know if you are speaking the truth or not
And believe me, that is one step for the relationship
To be damaged or even crash down.

I personally would rather tell a hurtful thing but true
Than pleasant, constant lies.
Lying involves more lying. A vicious cycle.
It isn't good at all!

D ) Too much "Public" and Mediatic Relationship.
This one is for Celebrities and Non Celebrities
Do not allow anyone to step in
and gossip about your relationship
DO NOT make it public.
I saw about it once...
It only brings up more drama,
More argues and instability
If you aren't into that, please avoid it.

To end point D)...
I believe that if a problem or argue is happening
Or if you have something such as critics to say to your partner
Save it for later, for a private moment or chat
NEVER release it for others to see.

A wise quote :
Praise in Public,
Criticize in Private

-- Unknown

E) Issues aren't discussed
If they aren't discussed either
Or if problems remain it can turn
into a "snowball effect"
it isn't healthy for the relationship.

F) Past isn't Closed.
It is something that comes silently...
But it is very,very harmful!
You need to forgive your other half
From Past Mistakes, Break Ups, ect.
It takes a lot of "guts" and a very serious conversation.
There MUST be the promise of not doing it ever again.
If this isn't closed, the balance of your relationship
WILL surely be affected.

G) Betrayal, other person appears.
Just no... the trust is too much affected
There must be real regret and apologies
Otherwise, I'm sorry but it is better to let it go
You deserve better!

H) When the relationship isn't discussed
If it is a flirt, nightstand, some months thing
or a short to long term relationship
Eventhough it is hard to face, you need to know...
Not only by asking but by reading between the lines
Of the way your better half talks with you
Or even if he/she contacts you, ect.

I) A non-assumed Relationship
Seems a little too much?
Not quite. If it is a non assumed Relationship
There is something blocking the other from assuming
I don't say like to force the other to assume
But actually assuming the Relationship
Wearing a ring, etc
Brings a bit more safety to one of the persons
Or even both.

May your relationship go well!

Relationships - Marriage

I personally never got married
and currently I don't think I would
As it is a really important decision in one's life as a first
Plus some marriages are a bit expensive and have to have a lot planned.
Third as it is an important decision and step...between two persons.
A change as it is the union between two people.

God is to stand as a witness of that union.
A union that only would be to happen once


Yet I do understand Divorce and I make some exceptions to that,
And God (not Church) would understand that too...
But that would be a subject for later.

Marriage is one decision that will change your life
As you will eventually do your life as a couple
Which includes... sharing a place/house with your significant other, sharing a space, bills/money related subjects. A legal and oficial union, on the other hand as I said, one supported and seen by God Himself. As so, it is not to take lightly in mood nor decision.

Again, in my point of view I think only one should get married
When he/she is sure that the person he/she decides to marry
With is going to be the one to live the good and least good moments.
As well to be aware that crisis can come or disease
Or even other factors as stress or argues, ect.
Not everything is good nor everything is bad!

1. I think the couple must know eachotother well enough
Before taking this step.
It is a big change and not always the couples are 100% ready for it.
It should be intended to be a long term relationship.

2. Each member of the couple should preferably
Have completely individual savings with some ammount of money
before making one account as a couple

3. They evetually should or must learn to share stuff with eachother
If not, argues are likely to occur.

4. Trust and respect are very important points!

5. Being faithful too. What is the point of marrying someone
If one of the members of the couple is unfaithful in anyway?
NOTE : By unfaithful I mean one who goes to online dating,
Chats with the point/goal of finding someone
Else EVEN if by a short term of time or multiple times
It is plain wrong!

6. More wrong is actually one getting envolved sexually
While married! Here comes the point of respect
Because the vows said something diferent.
Then trust appears as well as the other expected
probably better atitudes from you
AND MOSTLY, being the only One wanted,
Loved and cherished and never to be second or third, etc.

7. OTHER point... Lack of time
We all know that we have to work, we have to get a job
In order to be financely stable and in order to pay the bills...
And lack of time can happen.

" If it is all genuine,
It will stay strong despite of the lack of time ".


8. Routine can arrive in the relationship/marriage.
Yet, you can always surprise your partner
By going out to lunch or dinner somewhere new
Offering a gift once in a while or flowers...
Writing something for the partner, leaving small notes
Going somewhere quiet or going to the movies
OR making something diferent at home if both don't have money

9. MONEY isn't needed to spend great moments
With your significant other. Some creativity is.
You could try some new recipes together,
OR actually creating new recipes...
You can watch a movie in the confort of your home
By renting a movie.

(You could bring popcorns along
Or order a pizza)

10. Traveling. Be aware of priorities but if you can,
Save a little money for a trip somewhere near or not.
But by saving, I mean saving a only bit per month.
All the effort will be worth it.

11. Stimulate comunication too
(See post Relationships - Balance...)
By getting diferent subjects to talk about.
Going to diferent places CAN help you with talking more
Seeing new places actually CAN be fun!
(See post Walk, Walk, Walk)

For now these are my advices.
If I remember of anything else either
I or Wordskeeper shall add to the post.

Take care everyone!

Job - Warning Signs

The sun shines over here and it isn't late so...
Good morning everyone :)

In this post I am going to speak about a very important subject
Because I do not want anyone to fall into any trap
Like I once did. Why?
Because I don't want you to go through it. <3


There are several signs that CAN help you a LOT
They appear simple but regardless of that I want you to know.
I know I have said some on another post about interviews and steps.

BASICS FOR YOU :
1) Beware while posting free ads on the Internet
Select only the most important information
AND be as clear as possible
about the job that you are searching for. 

2) Be careful about the information you give out.

-------------

BASICS ABOUT COMPANIES
A) Try to know more about the company, for instance,
If it is reliable by asking about it to someone
or checking about it online.

B) As I said on the other post , check the email of the person
Who sends you the job offer on Google OR other search engine
That can save you and spare you from the lies or problems.

C) Or even the name of the employer if you are suspecting even more.
That can make you see the activity on the Internet.

D) Check the way the employer wrote to you.
Too many typos, it is a warning!

E) Adress...
The person who calls you for an interview
MUST know where you have to go for the interview
Without hesitations NOR mistakes.

F) Being Polite.
If you are to have any collegues, check the way they are treated on that day.
And if they aren't, please reconsider for a while.


EXPLANATIONS...
A) A unknown company is a bit dangerous at times
And...by checking online you can see feedbacks whether they are positive
Or negative such as frauds for example.

B) By checking you can see the usual offers from that person
There can be lies, you will never know.
For example one person has sent me an offer for a Secretary
And when I searched there was something for an Acompany Lady.
So when you confirm your suspicions DO NOT answer.       

C) I tell you about this because the person can be one that only wants to meet girls/boys, ect
And not one to actually offer you the job he/she "promissed".

D) A Employer can write well and has had some years in School, College or University
It is a Basic on Education. Please suspect if such happens.

E) It has no excuse.

F) This point helps you to reflect if the offer or company is the best for you.

Have a nice day <3 !

Job - Respect

Greetings,

I must say my "Current Job" post has some time already
So I am going to talk about my current job...
I basically call people and ask them to do surveys
Opinion surveys. It is like a Callcenter.

And we do such and maybe interviews personally too
But now I'm only doing on the phone
The payment isn't much either but it is something at least

We have several projects to go do surveys
and contact people from diferent parts of the country
for them to answer.

Basically it isn't sales BUT people think they are...
Another thing that occurs is that most people do NOT respect
Others that are working!

So my question would be :
Do I look like I like working every weekend
And even having to work today (Monday)
Which is an Holiday over here??

Well, NO. But it is my job...
But mostly what bothers me is that people laugh at me
OR make stupid excuses like
"No one is at home, you're talking with the cleaning lady"
"No one is at home (but someone answered the phone?)

OR say something such as...
Q : When would be the proper time to contact again?
A : I don't know, just keep trying! (Right...)

OR :
Q : Could I count with your colaboration in this study?
A : NO! (laughs)

OR :
(I finished talking)
Q (other person there) : Who is that?
A (from the person on the phone) : Just some girl. And hung up.

OR EVEN :
Some just hung up the phone without giving me the chance to talk
Or just hung up while I'm talking.

...I'm not forcing people to answer
But at least I would like some colaboration from them.
I was 4 hours with ONE survey done....
And that survey was incomplete in the middle.
I had to fill out the rest.

Now you shall know how frustrating that is a bit.
Then to brighten up my day there are like one or two persons on the phone
(No more than one or two) who talk a lot, that are really polite
Who answer the survey gladly. And for those I do like my work!

Why did I make this post?
As a "wake up" message. We all have to work for a living.
Whether is sales, surveys, do cleaning or being a waitress , ect...
Please respect the ones who work because they have to, to earn money
I guess it is pretty much it and I was venting too.

Note : Despite of any hatred or bad answer
Love your job as the only one you have
and as you are a lucky person to even have one.

At last but definately not least...
I shall leave this quote for you <3

Nobody can hurt me
without my permission.


Mahatma Gandhi

Blessed be!

Job - Safety and Tips

Hello and have a lovely week , readers!
While searching for a job, be aware of safety.

-- SAFETY --

1. When someone sends you a job offer, often try to put the email adress in Google
Or another Search Engine.
That way you can learn what type of offers that person
Or company often send out or publish on the Internet.
I saved myself from some offers that didn't matched what they told me AT ALL.
Better safe than sorry <3 2. Just send your resume or CV when you are sure And about to accept the job offer. If the person hasn't given much information, ask for it. Then search to see if the company is legitimate and decide. 3. Suspect of high payments specially when it isn't a very demanding job Nor a job that requires a lot of responsabilities. 4. Clear out any doubts you have with the company.  

-- INTERVIEWS --

1. Pay close attention to your phone or email adress after sending your resume
Because companies CAN contact you anytime.

2. When the company calls or contacts through email,
Take notes of the place, hour and day that the interview is going to happen.

3. Check prior the place where the interview is going to be
For that you can use Google Earth or Google Maps
So you won't get lost nor have any unpleasant surprises on the way.

4. Check prior about the company you are a candidate for.
Not only to see if it is a real and/or known company
But too, to be prepared for the interview
and know some stuff about the company when you get there.

5. Take someone with you if you want,
To go with you just near the adress.

6. Try to go a bit before the time set by the company
They evaluate that a lot, if you arrive in time
And if you go to the interview in the data set at all.

7. Other thing to mind is the way you get dressed in
Depends of the company.
But avoid slippers, tracksuits and open shoes for an interview
Look professional BUT not too formal.
Not too "sloppy" either. Just normal.

8. Bring along a suitcase or a organizer
Where you can bring...
+ Copies of your resume
(In case they need so OR in case you find a nearby store that needs staff)

+ Copies of volunteer proofs, courses, highschool OR college certificates
(Always good to bring along)

+ Either a small agenda OR clean A4/A5 format paper
(You will never know if you will need to take notes during the interview
OR if while you are on formation [typo?]).

Kind regards,

Inspiring Songs XII

One more inspiring song created in 1998 by Midge Ure called Breathe.







The Lyrics:



(Breathe)

With every waking breath I breathe

I see what life has dealt to me

With every sadness I deny

I feel a chance inside me die



Give me a taste of something new

To touch to hold to pull me through

Send me a guiding light that shines

Across this darkened life of mine



Breathe some soul in me

Breathe your gift of love to me

Breathe life to lay 'fore me

Breathe to make me breathe



For every man who built a home

A paper promise for his own

He fights against an open flow

Of lies and failures, we all know



To those who have and who have not

How can you live with what you've got?

Give me a touch of something sure

I could be happy evermore



Breathe some soul in me

Breathe your gift of love to me

Breathe life to lay 'fore me

To see to make me breathe



Breathe your honesty

Breathe your innocence to me

Breathe your word and set me free

Breathe to make me breathe



This life prepares the strangest things

The dreams we dream of what life brings

The highest highs can turn around

To sow love¹s seeds on stony ground



Breathe

Breathe



Breathe some soul in me

Breathe your gift of love to me

Breathe life to lay 'fore me

To see to make me breathe



Breathe your honesty

Breathe your innocence to me

Breathe your word and set me free

Breathe to make me breathe



I hope everyone likes it! Both the music and lyrics belong to Midge Ure

Job - Interviews


-- DURING INTERVIEWS --

Most frequent questions are...

1 ) Where did you heard about this company OR Why did you chose this company?

2 ) They are likely to ask about your qualities (plus)
and possible flaws (minus) at work.

3 ) They can ask about your hobbies or what do you do during your freetime
It just happened to me twice.

4 ) Why they must choose you?
(This one is meant to "highlight" you from the remaining candidates
It is a very important question)

The never do's

A ) Avoid speaking badly of other companies where you were at.

B ) Do not interupt the interviewer while he/she is talking.

C ) Avoid hesitating while answering.

D ) Avoid totally losing your eye contact or distract yourself
Or looking to other way.
(Reason ? Sometimes when people lie, they do that.
Interviewers evaluate a LOT the body language
And what you have to say, so please be careful)

E ) Make your remaining questions in the end.

F ) Avoid giving out the sugestion of the payment
Or throwing to the table how many $, £ or € you are going to earn.
Some do not like that, others accept.
I do that more for safety and only if they ask I give out a number
Not too high, not too low, just what is expected.

G ) Wait for an answer.
Either way, keep up your determination and confidence while searching for a job.

Good luck on getting a job!

Many blessings,

Social - Chatting

The sky gets darker here where I live at
So, goodnight everyone!
One recent subject I am going to talk about are chatrooms.
There are a whole lot of them nowadays plus social networks,
Some on which I shall not go in detail about.

That leads to other subjects...
Safety
a) I advice you to use a nickname, something far from your real name

b) Avoid putting your age or year of birth in there or in your email adress.

c) Avoid spreading/exposing too much information online
Such as pictures (mainly avoid ones that expose you too much or indicate porn/nudity)
Important files or documents.

d) Get to know the person well.

e) DON'T give out your adress.

f) When about to personally meet someone choose a public and crowded place
Think VERY carefully before deciding to meet someone you spoke with online.
Going from online to "real life" takes some steps...

h) ...and be aware that he/she might be a bit diferent than what you imagined
Or maybe not; I do not mean to be unpleasant, just giving a bit of a alert
Because I care for you all.

i) If you are a parent, be careful if a underage person is online
Always take the basic safety measures.
Specially nowadays, you will never know who can be at the other side
Of the screen or on the other side of the keyboard
As some can and do fake their true identity for other ends.

j) Avoid sending pictures and other stuff.


My point of view...
I was around a year or two in chatrooms,
And I am ready enough to speak a bit about this experience.

I found people who wanted only to talk about sex or see me in a webcam
On which I blocked and ignored right away.
And others who were friendly.
So choose your contacts well and wisely.

I mainly advice not to search for a relationship in chatrooms
Let things happen naturally, do not force them to happen
Nor feel desperate about it. It will happen in it's time.

And yes, I only searched for friends in the chatroom where I was.
I found a bit of rude people and friendly too.
I don't use chatrooms anymore as I was just curious before.
I let it go eventually and started going out more
And going social at school or events about poetry and prose releases.


In the meantime,
I will be wishing the best for you.

Relationships - Balance and Subjects

One more post, as requested regarding Relationships;
Forgive me in advance for the lack of posts here in Life Blog
Yet, sometimes I have too much work at hands
or reaching Internet is a little troubled.

Now getting to some subjects that ARE important in any relationship,
Whether it is Friendship, Love or Family relatives.

1) Listen
I know sometimes (at least it happens to me now and then)
You want to talk a lot

Especially if, like me you have the tiny problem of forgetting what you were talking about.

How do I solve this? I try my best to remember
In which part or point I was in the conversation

I think my friends got used to it, it isn't funny to forget stuff...
But oh well, I try to see something fun out of it,
Otherwise it would be a total bummer
To whoever was with me at the moment!
They help me remember…

As first, I do try to remember the subject and talk
Then I let the other person or persons in the group to talk
So I can see what exactly they think about x or y subject.
That is where it gets interesting.
Then the conversation can go on
Or we can skip/change to another subject
...If we all want or agree.

Believe me, there are two things about changing subjects…

Bright side:
There will be constantly a lot to talk about
And it might not get boring.

Negative part of it:
Changing conversation subjects too fast
Might get annoying often.

2) Talk
I am pretty sure that if people invited you or if you invited them
You want to hear from them and/or
They likely want to hear from you
So don't be afraid to talk
YET avoid making too much questions at the same time.

3) What to talk / write about?
It mostly depends of the person and of the occasion itself.

Family:
Daily basis subjects, school/work, culture/music and movies.
Best times to talk are when you go to any event,
Family gathering, museum, ect....
Or when you gather while on meals

(Mostly lunch and dinner because much people might be in a hurry while eating breakfast, specially if the person or persons go to work early morning)

Basics: when you start contact with someone whether
It is by writing or personally
Make basic questions to him/her…
I will try to give some tips, here!


Music
Favorite band, singer, if he/she has ever went to a concert
Or saw a certain band live, movie soundtracks, favorite song,
most annoying or disliked songs,
show random music or bands and ask his/her opinion,
show music clips or videos,
new artists and bands (no matter which country they are from),
if you know how to play an instrument
show it and teach him/her with time and if he/she wants,…

Culture
If you are both from different cultures
or countries you can talk about your differences
in a healthy way without breaking into an argue.
It is all about the way you talk towards your friend
or even significant other.

Respect IS NEEDED above all in a conversation.

As for Culture… you can speak about Politics…
Yet if you think this is rather boring…
You can talk about the “good” and “less good”
In your country/city, the weather in a random way,
Plans for Summer or for School
(if you are reading me when school is about to start).

You can talk about books,
If he/she enjoys reading and what type of books/author,
Discuss a bit by trading different points of view.

You can learn his/her language and he/she can learn yours.
Then you can test each others knowledge
by doing some questions and tiny tests.

Other things, such as hobbies,
What the person enjoys doing during the free time.
Share daily basis subjects,
Like your day at school or at work.
Ask him/her the same.
Show that you truly care. <3 Cosmetics, beauty habits, ECT
Some enjoy talking about cosmetics,
beauty and fashion…depends of the person.

Zen

Sports
His/her favorite sport or favorite sports team/player;
Expectations for the championship….
If he/she practices or
would ever wish to practice any type of sport
if he/she had the chance.

Pets
What pets does he/she have now
and which ones would he/she like to have in the future?
What is your favorite animal/pet?
Have you ever been in a Zoo?
If so, what do you think of them?

NOTE : If I remember more subjects,
Either I or Wordskeeper shall add them
Here in this post.

Have a wonderful week...

Relationships - Violence

Do you feel better now
When she falls to the ground?


Unfortunately violence
During marriage or violence while dating is sometimes real.
Or domestic violence.

I believe it is a subject that has to be exposed
And eventually be solved/ sorted out.

As some of my posts show, I am against violence...
Against other persons no matter their age or animals.
It is wrong.

And violence against your significant other
Is even worse in my eyes. Your wife or your husband...
She or he is supposed to be the one
Who you shared your matrimonial vows with
On which includes...
Standing with that person through,

"...Health or disease
...Happiness or Sadness
...Richness or Poor
Until Death do us part."


Not that unrelated the vows because
either one of those while the couple is in "crisis"
Can generate argues and other times,
Violence when one or both
are highly exposed to a stressful enviromment.

...Continuing, violence isn't necessary at all
to expose your points of view
Forcing your significant to agree
on whatever you say isn't a good start
To any relationship.

We all have our individual opinions and capacity to think.
And believe me, all it takes is to TALK.
Talk, never shouting. And respecting.

Types of violence...
~ Physical
~ Psychological

Explanation :
~ Physical violence includes -
Pushing, grabbing, punching/kicking,
Pulling hair, throwing objects...
Anything that intencionaly hurts the other physically.

~ Psychological violence includes -
Intimidating (through messages or personally),
threatning, manipulating...playing with one's mind,
forcing to do what the other doesn't agree,
restrict money, controlling (through messages, personally
or through simple things as accounts, conversations, ect.)
Insulting or cursing towards the significant other with the intention
of making the person feel or to bring the person down.

--

Factors that can worsen Violence
~ Alcohol
~ Substance abuse

Explanation :
One of those or the two completely change the person
I don't say this as an excuse, though.


Factors that are needed to lessen or erase violence
~ Comunication
~ RESPECT
~ Trust
~ Time

Explanation :
I shall advice if you or your significant other
If one of you is about to "snap"
take like 15 up to 20 minutes
Or a bit more to one of you. Go out or go to separate rooms
So you can think a bit and not act in the "heat of the moment"
Or, under stress and anger...

If going to separate rooms didn't solved your problem...
a ) Go out a bit, walk... then come back.

b ) Hop in the shower (cold) or in the bathtub (warm)
In order to relax or think a bit on your own.

c ) Go talk with your partner
and try to say you two can talk
the next day about what is disturbing him/her.

Other little something :
1) Violence isn't healthy in a relationship.

2) If your a victim of such, do not lock yourself up nor suffer in silence

3) You will never know that while you hit on your soulmate, your other half
Someone maybe (a little maybe) would like to held him/her and treat him/her respectfully.

4) There are around 4 million people in the world (or more now?)
YET... your wife, your husband chose YOU.
Amongst so many people.
You are taken or if you're married, think of the good moments too
It is never too late to repair the damages.
What is needed is pacience, love, comunication
And the promise (to keep) that the violent events will not happen again.

A song sugestion a bit about the subject...

( Música - Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - Face down )

Take care and peace be with you!

World - Crisis

I shall only show my opinion about this...
UE and over UE territory is sinking a bit.
It is like a chain reaction
First one country, then another.
Not long ago, my country was hit by that wave of crisis as well.
I have a sharp sense of justice regarding this
And I shall be honest to my readers as well :

The ones who spend and earn money ilegally are the ones to blame
Mostly politicians or the ones in big companies over here
And us, people and citizens are the ones who are paying a debt that isn't ours
We didn't asked for the debt. They did, though.

We, the housewives and simple people who work for a living
We,... that earn less and less...
How can we pay a super.huge.overwhelming debt?

I see the drastic situation of people
Who worked a "whole life" just to get tiny retirements
Results? Not enough money to pay for medical bills or house bills.
We see badly payed and awfully temporay jobs...
That is incredibly sad reality in some places.

In this part I wonder how can they sleep
After all the rise of transportation, food/supplies and bill taxes?

This moves me in many ways...
I see more and more beggars.

But to contradict all of this, I notice mores sales...
= to consume MORE than we can actually afford.
More credit cards,
Discounts to ease the sales and pockets

More credit cards??
Spending more, I guess...
More debts too...

I see more modern cars for the politicians,
And I see them throwing sand to our eyes...
How can this possibly happen?

World - Tragedy in Oslo

My heart goes out to the 76 victims in Oslo
and in the island of Utoeya both situated in Norway
At the 22th of July.

As for the terrorist/responsible himself
(Who I think is Norwegian as well)
...I hope justice is done.

I still haven't exactly understood
What made him and what drove him
On making those horrid actions.
Only he knows by now.
Others can especulate about it.

Nothing can replace the loss of a loved one or grieve
some people in that country must be feeling.

I deeply respect the way that (even though only some)
Do not return the hatred.


Please, do not allow anger to destroy you.
Allow justice to be done... which I hope is done soon!
No one deserves their life to be taken away.
Kind regards, my prayers are with you.

Random Facts About WordsKeeper

1. I am a male. Not too young, not too old and I'm Portuguese.

2. All my life I had problems with being fat and with my father. Most of my life I've been fighting depression too

3. I do believe in God. I believe there is a God and that all religions of the World believe in the same God, altough they call it different names. Altough I believe in God, I do not like the religion and all the problems it makes, like for example, the wars and conflicts between religions, the richness that is given to popes and priests when God talks to us on how riches are not that important.


"What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God." ~ Eleanor Powell

4. I hate politics! I recognize they may be important in a country, but at the moment I am just sad on how the politics class just wants money, money, money instead of helping the countries they are from.

"Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind" ~ George Orwell

5. I hate lies. Long story, you can understand better this point in my other post called Father

"The naked truth is always better than the best dressed lie" - Ann Landers

6. Probably my past changed this, but I do judge more people for what they are inside than what they look like outside. For the good, and for the bad. If someone is really beautifull, but has bad principles, why would I like to talk and be friend with that person? That's just my opinion

"Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart" ~ Kahlil Gibran

7. I love Japanese and Chinese Food :D

8. I do believe in Souls. I just can't believe we are here for just one life. We have so much to learn! I believe that when we die, our soul will come back to Earth in another body, not remembering the past life of course.

9. I believe in True Love. Actually that is the only Love I believe that is not between people of same blood. I do not believe that one night cases can be called Love, nor summer loves and such. If we truely love someone, it's a relationship that will continue for long time.

"True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations; it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart." ~Honore de Balzac

10. I hate public speaking :P I start shaking and eventually start making errors and be even more nervous lol

Self Esteem/Motivational Videos - Life´s Advice

Everyday or even in your spare time
See this. Even if it aparently makes no sense now or so
It will later, believe me! <3















I hope you receive only the best.
But never forget God and to be humble
Even to your own enemies.
Take care...

Relationships - Forgeting someone

I know how tough it can be to give a lot of effort
In a relationship
(Whether it is a short or long term one)
and for it to somehow end
...Or has some bumps along the way.

But back to the subject
One of my friends sent me a small text/quote once...
A wise one... :

" It's like cutting a beautiful flower off while
it is still blooming and preserve it forever.
It's better to have these memories,
than feel disappointment when the "flower" withers.
As time passes you will sometimes
return to the memories when you are in the mood "

...I was in pain, I was seriously disappointed.
To be honest , I didn't believed in his words
Although his intention was the best.
And I knew it.

It just didn't seem....possible at that time.
At that current moment I was sinking.

Eventually, my friends were really caring
And understanding towards me
That helped a lot and made me get up again
From what looked like a dark pit.
Time passed and I read and re-read this quote...
And you know what? This boy was right!!

I preserve these memories indeed.
To who it may concern (if you ever concern)
Thank you for teaching me
For introducing me to your culture and space
For bringing life to me.
And that is it.


I want you all to please hold on
And actually aim for your goals,
Have ambition for what you believe is the best
And too, to read this girl's history!
Hold on and good luck, my dear reader! <3

Father...

When a father turns into just another friend...

I recognize... it must not be easy to be a father. No baby is born with a manual telling their parents how to be a father and mother but if we think about it there are lots of people that turn into good parents.

Let's face it...you weren't a good father.

You never cared to respect your kids when they were young, you would often tell us to stop playing with cars and such to come to the living room where you were watching tv and be quiet, and if we did some noise we would have to go to bed.

Your love demonstration would be sitting quietly in your lap while you watched tv or played tetris. You always tried to make us show some love when You wanted and never when we wanted. The silence was terrible, specially to my brother, since he wasn't the quiet type like me.

I don't remember you playing with us on the floor or helping in school or such. I was told you did that when I was very young. I don't remember it.

You never taught me how life was, all the common things a father should teach his son. You never taught me how to shave, never taught me about girls, about the changes in my body, about relationships. I had to find a father in my mother and family.

You did teach me some thigs... specially what not to do when I am a father. For that I thank you.

You were not a great husband too, you hurt my mother, you cheated on her and almost made a slave of her (she had to do everything for you while you were sitting and playing). For that I thank you too because now I know what not to do when I grow up.

I tried, I really tried to forget all you did, all the lies and all the indifference to our problems. That was hurting me, because I didn't want to hurt you. Sorry, I had to have that talk with you. Now I said it all, but we are going apart.

I am truly sorry that this happened but I couldn't be constantly hurted by this.

You are slowly, turning in some kind of friend. I still love you as a father...but do not see you as a father. You changed a lot in this last 10 years... You did... but not with us and not for us.

I do want you to know that, even after all this, you can always count on me.

Let's end this with a song about a father and son, called "Father and Son" by Cat Stevens


Father...

When a father turns into just another friend...

I recognize... it must not be easy to be a father. No baby is born with a manual telling their parents how to be a father and mother but if we think about it there are lots of people that turn into good parents.

Let's face it...you weren't a good father.

You never cared to respect your kids when they were young, you would often tell us to stop playing with cars and such to come to the living room where you were watching tv and be quiet, and if we did some noise we would have to go to bed.

Your love demonstration would be sitting quietly in your lap while you watched tv or played tetris. You always tried to make us show some love when You wanted and never when we wanted. The silence was terrible, specially to my brother, since he wasn't the quiet type like me.

I don't remember you playing with us on the floor or helping in school or such. I was told you did that when I was very young. I don't remember it.

You never taught me how life was, all the common things a father should teach his son. You never taught me how to shave, never taught me about girls, about the changes in my body, about relationships. I had to find a father in my mother and family.

You did teach me some thigs... specially what not to do when I am a father. For that I thank you.

You were not a great husband too, you hurt my mother, you cheated on her and almost made a slave of her (she had to do everything for you while you were sitting and playing). For that I thank you too because now I know what not to do when I grow up.

I tried, I really tried to forget all you did, all the lies and all the indifference to our problems. That was hurting me, because I didn't want to hurt you. Sorry, I had to have that talk with you. Now I said it all, but we are going apart.

I am truly sorry that this happened but I couldn't be constantly hurted by this.

You are slowly, turning in some kind of friend. I still love you as a father...but do not see you as a father. You changed a lot in this last 10 years... You did... but not with us and not for us.

I do want you to know that, even after all this, you can always count on me.

Motivation for the Masses! - Life´s Advice

Greetings!
My gifts for you...
Some might be in Portuguese.

















1. Do not be afraid of failing
For in each failure and mistake, there is a lesson
For each failure, there will be a victory.

2. Always aim for your dreams
Regardles of dificulty

3. Love yourself as you love others.
Love others as you love yourself.

4. Bring joy and light to people's hearts.

5. Allow yourself to do at least
one great action today whether is for a family member,
a stranger or a friend.

6. Worship your God,
Respect your fellow brothers and sisters.

7. Respect the elderly
For they have much wisdom
And crossed either many paths and/or many lives.

8. Deny whatever insults or desrespects your Lord.

9. Believe in your path to happiness
Believe in your path to freedom.

NOTE : Path to Freedom I define as one
where and when the person puts down
his/her bad or dark habits behind.
That is why another one of my blogs
It is called Path to Freedom.

The "x" behind Path to Freedom
Is like "X" marking the spot.
"X" as ex...harmful things
That were abandoned
In order for a better life
And search for a greater goal.

Inspiring Songs X

Here there are two musics from a Finland's Power Metal band called Stratovarius

First song is "Stratovarius - Infinity"



The lyrics are included in the video, but i'll leave some parts here :)

"How much more do we want until we're satisfied?
What happens when we have what we want?
Acquiring more, still there's never enough
We forget those who really are in need"

...

"Be yourself and do what you want to do with your life
Remember, you get just what you give
You reap all what you sow
You are in charge of your own life"


The second song is "Stratovarius - Paradise"



As usual lyrics are on screen but here are some parts of it ;)

"Many rare species will perish soon
And we'll be short on food
Why do we have to be so selfish
We've got to change our attitude"

...

"It seems to me that there's no sense at all
Nobody cares it's always the same
Mother nature's crying out in pain
I know we're the one's to blame "




I hope everyone likes it!
