The Value of a Purpose in Personal Improvement.

"Who stands for something, will never fall for nothing." Bases.  The first thing I like to say in this matter to patients and friends is that individual improvement is, as the concept implies, very PERSONAL and it needs in first place a solid base of ACCEPTANCE. Improvement plans based on external demands and pressures, saying… Continue reading The Value of a Purpose in Personal Improvement.

“Hair do”

She did cut her hair. The new look was amazing, and she was like  hovering around, fullfilings daily tasks with a new smile and a renewed liveliness; careless of the inquisitive looks or the judgemental gestures. Truth is she didn't actually care. That new unapologetic glam was showing the real meaning of not to give… Continue reading “Hair do”

” From where heartless monsters come.”

D Doc's Diary

How to creat a careless lover? Were they as a regular person; with feelings and able to think about others once?

See what you are doing now. Just a few days with him and you are saying that you love him?! You are an extremely strong confident woman, older than him, emotionally smarter, but you are being selfish.

For sure you mean that you like him. It must be a deep attraction and a feeling that you want to stay with this particular person too much. It is also a genuine feeling; but, is it love? No!

Love is another thing.

Love is a deep thing!

Loving something means you learned to know it from all its edges and faces, even from the scratches and broken tips. It means that this particular object is involved with your life in a level that it will be difficult( not saying impossible) but…

“Eating from restaurants or learning basics of cooking?”

D Doc's Diary

We must recognize that one of the main issues of going to live abroad is to adapt our eating routines.

I mean, humans need to eat; but now we find that we are taking our meals alone, cooking only for ourselves (or in many cases actually cooking for the very first time in our lives as that wasn’t necessary before due to having a wife, a mother, a housekeeper …)

So in many occasions the decision is to start constantly eating from restaurants and putting our health in danger with that choice. Fast-food, hot spices, ways of cooking that are totally stranger to our digestive system, pre-cooked and packaged food, processed or reheated food; are some of the many factors hazard to our health behind this solution.

I have a friend that went thru a very unpleasant experience as he spent more than 2 years eating from restaurants of spicy food…

Adaptation

Covid-19 is not gonna make other diseases magically disappear. People will still have headaches, backpain, heart attacks, persistent dandruff, appendicitis, ingrowing nails... even at home children will still fell down while playing and cut open their chins and foreheads because that's what they do. Also other needs are not gonna get erased. Women are still… Continue reading Adaptation

Social distance doesn’t mean loneliness.

We are social beings. We need interactions with other humans for our proper bio-psycho-social wellbeing (translation: for our HEALTH).

Isolation is proven to have a heavy negative impact in our mental and then physical status if we don’t work on strategies to keep contact with others. I mean is fun the way we talk to our home appliances sometimes( yeah, don’t deny it, we all do) but that shouldn’t be done routinely(or so shrinks say). So it’s understandable that our first attitude in front of any not self imposed measure that requires us to be isolated will always be of TOTAL REJECTION.

We see it right now during this COVID-19 outbreak. Governments and health authorities had to impose curfews and quarantine and limitation of movement in favour of to flatten the curve of cases, to permit the health institutions to be sufficient for…

” Love yourself; the rest will come.”

D Doc's Diary

tempfileforshare_20190515-2135442098652280879500897.jpg

Smart advice of the day sisters: “If having love issues, never get more sad, get more beautiful instead!!

And I don’t mean only external beauty. I’m talking about  spending that precious new free time on growing yourself and upgrading to your next best version; instead of on increasing your tears or feeding those useless self-pity  feelings.

So you say you give your soul and still not being loved in the way you deserve? Well, don’t just seat there to be miserable! Go to your partner with a resolution: “Lets talk about it, lets work it out, lets see the changes!” Try everything (as soon as don’t involve sacrificing your integrity) because of course we get into relationships hoping it to be for ever after, or at least as long lasting as we can make them be, so we should act in consequence of that.

Having trying it all, breath and…

“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” — Marcus Aurelius Caring too much about external opinions.

It is insane believing that others opinion should matter enough to lead our actions when, guess what:… Continue reading “The Need of Control and the heavy anchor of External Opinions (Part 2)”
