Suggestions for the Fast of Daniel

  We live in a reality where we’re constantly bombarded by various voices, at times, simultaneously. Artists, characters, family, friends, strangers etc. Everyone always has something to tell us or a thought to share. The problem is that most of these words and opinions don’t meet our needs nor do they lead us in the […]

The 1st Rule to Successful Communication

  Make an effort to listen and understand each other. You’ll never be able to communicate intelligently without first understanding what the other person wants to say. This is harder than it looks. Not everyone expresses themselves clearly, and sometimes our negative feelings give a different connotation to our words. Stop. Listen. Do not interrupt […]

The generator of false beliefs

  Anger is the root of false beliefs. When a person is controlled by an anger, with time it becomes hatred. And this hatred develops beliefs to support and justify itself. If I get angry with so-and-so and let myself be consumed by it, I will end up hating so-and-so. And my hatred will begin […]

Love and fashion

  I COME from a place and a time where people used things until they were completely worn out. Everything was expensive, rare and acquired with difficulty. Because of that, things were well taken care of and much valued. Nowadays, people use them only while that FASHION TREND lasts, which is a small fraction of […]

What to do when your partner disagrees with you? [1]

You want a new car, but your husband thinks the old clunker you have is just great; he’d rather save the money to start that “business” that has been talked about for years but has never happened. You want your mother to live with you, but your wife says she’d rather have pepper spray in […]

NEVER base your life on a popular saying

  “A mother’s love is the only true love.” IS THAT REALLY TRUE? Then, try saying this to children who’ve been abandoned and are now living on the streets, to daughters who have been sold into prostitution, or to children who suffer abuse with their mothers’ consent. No, I don’t mean to pick on mothers […]

I’m not happy with myself

  When you’re not happy with yourself, there’s an anguish that constantly blames everything that’s wrong in the world for your unhappiness. It’s people who don’t understand you. It’s things that are not as they should be. It’s injustice that makes you angry… Too many wrong things! A feeling of helplessness takes over; sheer anguish. […]

Lessons to be learned from the end of a marriage

  Brazil’s most popular TV anchors, Wiliam Bonner and Fátima Bernardes, have recently officially announced their break-up after being married for 26 years. No further detail or official motive has been disclosed by the couple. It’s not up to us to speculate, since a separation in itself is already painful for obvious reasons, let alone […]

Hatred, grudge, and forgiveness

  Hatred is a form of cancer that slowly kills its victim. The healing is free and simple: forgiveness. Yet, the patient wrongly thinks that revenge is the cure. Forgiveness is simple. Note that I didn’t say it’s easy. It is simple because it only depends on one’s decision. Deciding to forgive is not complicated […]

A winner’s secret

  We cannot live by encouragement or discouragement. Living this way results in a life of ups and downs—more downs than ups, actually. How many times have you felt like not getting out of bed in the morning to go to work or school but you did? At that moment, you overcame the feeling of […]
