Want a job that allows you to spend quality time with family? Do you love to learn new things? Or do you hate working in one place? Then consider these 5 fulfilling and flexible job options.
Life is hard. You may have heard of this before and this is very true. Life is also funny with all of its twists and turns and most of the time no one is laughing as they take the ride. So the main question is, why is life not easy? There are countless of reasons for that but let us take a few of them.
Life gives us challenges that can be difficult and painful. It is the challenges in life that makes us stronger and who we are. Whether you are coping with loss of income, an end to a marriage, death of a loved one, etc. we all have struggles in life. Learning from these experiences is crucial in taking the next positive steps to find your self again.
Talking to yourself negatively can destroy your self-confidence and make problems in relationships. We feel that we are unworthy to be loved, incapable of doing anything good, and unable to finish something that has value. Words can cut like swords in every soul and destroy success and happiness. Changing how we talk needs awareness of what we are saying. Most people, unfortunately, do not realize that they are talking to themselves negatively. Unless another person will notify them.
There are people who get nervous about investing emotionally in relationships and friendships. They feel unworthy of being loved and appreciated by others or may have been hurt from previous relationships. With that being said, self-protection happens and it can be done in different ways.
Disengaging yourself mentally is a good way to protect yourself from emotional hurt but it can also avoid you from establishing emotional happiness and meaningful relationships. Distancing yourself by not engaging mentally may seem boring, aloof, hostile, and disinterested to others. Other people may feel that they are being ignored but in reality they do not know how to start a conversation and may feel a little awkward.
Shyness affects most of us at some point of our lives. Usually, young people find shyness difficult to overcome as they improve their social skills. Some people seem to persist shyness into their adult life as if it becomes a habit.
Shyness is rooted in self-conscious and usually flourishes as people get mature and become experienced. On the other hand, for some people it can stick, and then actions are needed.
Do you know someone who is overly aggressive or too pushy? That car salesman who approached you before you even got out of your car? Did he come too strong or too fast? You probably get turned off with that. Being aggressive or overly aggressive has its own time and place.
On the other hand, we must be assertive at times. In business, assertiveness is an important quality. Being assertive does not imply that you are overly aggressive. Even the most soft-spoken, mild-mannered people have to be assertive sometimes. Being assertive is expressing yourself to show the value in whatever it is your promoting.
