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 .

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.
