6 THINGS WHICH CAN CAUSE UNHAPPINESS

200 (25)

Holding a grudge against someone can lead to depression, anxiety, and unnecessary stress. Being offended for too long will take away time for happier moments. Forgive and try to forget behavior which makes you unhappy but is not important enough to waste time and effort trying to correct.

Focusing too much on relatively small and trivial events in your life will take away time which you can use focusing on important things in your life. Stressing out excessively about unimportant things will cause more unhappiness than it is worth.

Comparing yourself with other seemingly more successful social and professional people and feeling inadequate and jealous can cause great unhappiness. Focus on improving yourself and giving others some praise for their achievements and try to learn useful skills from them which you can try to apply to your own life.

Seeking approval from everyone will frequently lead to frustration and disappointment when no approval is forthcoming and cause unhappiness. Do the best that you can but don’t waste mental effort worrying if someone will approve or disapprove of what you did. You will never be able to please everyone that you interact with so why try pleasing everyone.

Making excuses for your mistakes, bad behavior, or failures and not acknowledging your faults will create more unhappiness in the future. If you don’t learn from your mistakes, bad behavior, and failures and don’t try to improve or eliminate them in the future then this is continuing behavior which will lead to more unhappiness.

Refusing to change when it becomes obvious that change is necessary for progress to be made can make you very unhappy. Stubbornness and inability to admit that you can be wrong some of the time will make you unhappy and make you continue to exist in a delusional world of impossible perfection.

eagle1_0

ACHIEVEMENT

Achievement means that goals will be made and many of those goals will be gotten.

 ACTION

An action is frequently a simple movement done to achieve a goal(s).  Actions are a sign that activity and/or change exists and is necessary if any goal is to be achieved.

ADAPT

Failing to reach a goal with a first attempt may mean that you will have to adapt or change your method to reach that goal.

ADVENTURE

Adventure is frequently a risky activity whose primary goal is excitement and not profit.

AMBITION

Ambition is the setting of goals with an intense desire and they are usually goals with a relatively great level of importance in society.

ATTITUDE

An optimistic attitude is frequently preferable to a pessimistic attitude when attempts are made to achieve a goal(s).  Optimism can be contagious in motivating others to also try to achieve a goal(s) and pessimism can frequently be a demotivating factor for others.

THE TRUTH ABOUT 8 FEARED NUTRITION MYTHS

food

The following 8 statements are true and if you don’t believe them then you believe in one or more food myths.

All calorie sources are the same (Calories from proteins and fats will satiate you sooner and you won’t have to overeat which is likely if you get most of your calories from carbs and sugars.)

Eating much protein will not harm your kidneys and cause osteoporosis

A low fat diet is not the healthiest way to eat

Salt is not dangerous to eat unless you have high blood pressure

Saturated fat from meat and other sources does not raise your cholesterol nor does it cause heart attacks and death

Coffee in moderation is not bad for you

Eggs rich in cholesterol can’t give you heart disease

Low carb diets with much saturated fat does not increase your risk for heart disease and other chronic illnesses

To get more detailed information about the 8 myths read the following Popular Science article.

http://www.popsci.com/node/74033/edit 

CONCLUSION: Humans are omnivores who can eat natural proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Eat a great variety of all kinds of certified organic foods which can include fast food once in a while and eat only when you are hungry. Stop eating when you feel full and eat only about once a day. If you are not hungry don’t eat at all. You can not eat anything all day long and you will not starve or die!

EXPERIMENT with new foods and eat them if they taste good, are not artificially sweetened with added sugar, and are not overly processed. Don’t be afraid that new foods will poison you or make you sick in some way. Natural unprocessed food is not bad for you so don’t get paranoid about eating something new. Variety is the spice and health of life!!!!!!

After viewing the pictures it should be obvious that modern theoretical physics with its simple mathematics will simply not be the solution to explaining the complex star formations which exist in the universe. Relatively simple theories like the big bang, relativity, general relativity, and black holes are simple minded theories with logical inconsistencies which will never explain complex star formations which are a billion times more complicated than a simple solar system model.

The Hubble telescope has revealed the complexity of the interacting forces in nature and the only hope of eventually explaining the intricacies lies in super computer calculations and even with them we may never know in detail how the universe really works or exists. There is turbulence in space and simple gravitational explanations alone are not enough to explain it.

Turbulence in space implies that space is really not empty as thought but in fact influences the life cycles of stars and the concept of dark matter or aether seems to have some impact on how the universe functions. We have no scientific tools to measure dark matter so until we do theoretical physics is in a dead end and has nothing to say nor will it have anything to say  on the subject in the near foreseeable future.

It is time to focus all our energies on the planet earth and its threatened wilderness plants and animals so we can realistically delay the time of human, plant, and animal extinction.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BLOGGING

blogornotyw3

You will probably not make any money blogging. There are some scam artists who promise you the easy life with almost no effort if only you part with a few of your hard earned dollars and join their scam so don’t fall for it.

You won’t sell very many of your books blogging because even if you have thousands of followers you need to interest and reach at least a million to sell a few thousand books.

Moderating and replying to comments is mostly a waste of time and at best you will maybe find a few casual acquaintances with casual rather useless trivial knowledge or information to share with you.

You can’t choose what followers you don’t want such as those who like to use profanities or those who are scam artists.

Quality blogging escapes most of us because most are not passionate about anything of importance in human’s lives. Most bloggers run out of material to write about rather quickly and if they continue to write it is about random thoughts and ideas which few are interested in.

If you don’t have a passion or passions to write about and if you are not spending hours a day researching your passion for new developments and interesting facts then chances are you won’t have a quality blog which humans will be returning to.

Blogging is an interesting hobby but not a serious profession. If you want your blogs to be published professionally you will have to have the credentials and writing ability or celebrity status. You will also probably have to conform to and promote the corrupt mythology of the media and corporations who control the official press.

Finally, if you are hoping to write a block busting novel someday don’t delude yourself because the younger generation does not like to read lengthy novels or books and prefer instant gratification and not verbose writing. The internet is killing book writing as a profession.

Knowing the truth, do you still want to blog for the fun of it?

5 FACTS ABOUT CLOSE FRIENDSHIPS

women-laughing

You can be honest, sincere, and truthful with close friends because they are honest, sincere, and truthful with you.

Close friends will accept you with your flaws and the mistakes that you make in life without advertising or gossiping about them with others. You can let your hair down or be yourself without fear that some of the bad thingsthat you do will become public knowledge in the future and threaten your reputation. They are loyal.

Close friends share at least one or more of your passions in life and sharing information and activities about those passions on a regular basis is what bonds you together.

Close friends will try to help you in times of need with reassuring emotional support, advice when needed, and occasionally even financial advice or help.

The farther away a close friend is and the less you interact or communicate with them on a regular basis the less intense your friendship becomes.

 

Conclusion: If you want a close friendship make sure you have one or more passions in common which you can share and discuss and participate in. Be honest and truthful with your friend but not in a mean or very critical way. Don’t gossip about any personal flaws, mistakes, hardships, and personal secrets which they may have.

Nurture your close friendship by investing enough personal time with your friend so that it doesn’t gradually fade and maybe even disappear through neglect.

If you have one close friend in life consider yourself fortunate because most people have no close friends!!!!!!

HOW TO REALLY HELP HUMANS

Friends - one teenage girl comforts another

Helping someone frequently means an investment of time, energy, and rarely money. If money is the issue then it is best not to give any but recommend that they better manage their finances.

Loaning money to friends and relatives in need frequently results in broken friendships and relationships because the money is never paid back and lingering resentment ends the relationship sooner or later.

If they are employed recommend short duration loan companies like Amscot to get emergency money and if they are unemployed recommend that they apply for food stamps but refuse to give financial help.

Most financial problems are caused by overwhelming credit card debt, not budgeting money, and not having a savings account for financial emergencies. My evergreen book HOW TO SAVE MONEY is a very good reference for humans with money problems.

Very frequently when a friend is in trouble all they really want and frequently need is emotional support and empathy with their plight. Unless they ask for advice don’t always offer some because they will assume that you are criticizing them for not leading their lives in a proper way and may resent the advice given. If they do ask for help or advice then do the following.

Helping a friend is usually in the form of good intentioned advice after listening carefully to the problems that the friend is expressing and experiencing. Use your personal life experiences and personal knowledge to add to helpful advice which you think you can make.

If you can’t give advice maybe you can refer your friend to someone who can better help. Friendship is usually sharing life experiences both conversationally and physically.

If a friend seems to need help or advice give it to the best of your ability and be sincere. If there is something physical that you can do for a friend to help and it will not cost too much of your valuable time and effort and money then do it.

Some people just have friends so that they can “hang out” and have some company to use up their free time. Don’t do this because it will not help your life if you are not learning anything new or not experiencing a pleasurable pastime together.

Sometimes people make a mistake and don’t realize they have made one. Go through a description of their actions and see if they will begin to realize what the mistake was. If they still don’t see that they made a mistake or mistakes be sincere and communicate “That seems like a mistake(s) to me. What do you think?” If this question has no response then you will probably not be able to help in any rational way and you are probably wasting your time and should move on.

Everyone has the infrequent experience which greatly upsets and challenges their belief that they have the answer to everything. When something is troubling a friend or an acquaintance ask “what’s wrong?” and then listen to them express their fearful experience. It may upset you also but do your best to tap into your similar experiences and personal knowledge to give reassurance or some useful knowledge which might relate to the upsetting experience and try to emotionally calm the upset party.

When a person suffers a health fright their fear will often be difficult to understand. If it is a life threatening experience like a heart attack there is cause to be upset and only reassurance and listening to their fears will not help.

Suggest that most health warnings or problems are usually not fatal except for cancer and that with time the body will heal itself and the health fright will go away with the right nutrition and a localized exercise and/or rest for the area of pain. High blood pressure and signs of diabetes can be treated naturally without the need for constant medication. Offer help in the form of nutritional advice found in my blogs and you may succeed in calming down the health fright.

Helping someone to plan a visit is a logistical problem as well as a problem of scheduling things to do which may or may not be mutually beneficial. If the visiting guest can’t sleep over then suggest a nearby motel or hotel. Suggest a rental car or promise to drive them around in your own car if they don’t use their own car.

If they are not a close family relative or relatives then suggest possible interesting tourist sights which they could prepare for and visit. If it is a family affair and everyone wants to sleep over then ask them to bring air mattresses or provide them with some which you purchase yourself.

Helping someone prepare for a job interview may not be your strong point so suggest that they go on the internet and Google the information needed. In a nutshell your appearance is important and your resume should be sent prior to the interview and you should let the interviewer ask most of the questions to which you should respond in a sincerely and truthfully and enthusiastically where necessary.

Basically the job interviewer wants to know if you are experienced or a fast learner or are going to show up for work on time and if you seem to have an optimistic attitude and communication skills which will help in the job environment. Further education in the job field may also help to land a future job.

In this selfish, overly exposed to sex, modern society many humans need help with dating, family relationships, and finding close friendships. Many of my evergreen blogs cover these topics but if you want serious help and knowledge read one or more of my evergreen books LOVEALL, MODERN PARENTING, AND GOOD MODERN BEHAVIORS.
