I still remember when my friend John called me on a Sunday afternoon two years ago. He had an enthusiastic tone in his voice. “I want you to meet Marta, she is the most incredible woman I’ve ever met. Come to my place tomorrow at 6 p.m. and I’ll introduce you to her.”
He was clearly head over heels. In the beginning, I was slightly skeptical, as I thought it was the typical lustful ‘honeymoon period’ that was influencing him, but I was truly glad to hear him happy and I accepted the invitation.
Fast forward to today, they are…
Charming people. They always have an exciting story to tell, and they have that seemingly innate ability to make you feel at ease in their company.
It seems some people were simply born like that.
When they enter a room, everyone notices their presence. They are like magnets, and when they talk, everyone hangs on every single word coming out of their mouth.
Many of us often wonder how those people can have such a magnetic personality. Is there a secret formula? How did they become how they are? Were they just born like that?
The answer is, we are…
Four years ago, during a normal day at the office, my friend Sarah went to the kitchen and a nice guy approached her. She knew he liked her, as she had caught him staring at her a few times. He was nervous, and she could see it. So she did her best to make him feel at ease.
They had a short and pleasant conversation that afternoon, then chatted on Messenger for a few days, and after a week they went on their first date.
Fast forward to today, they are one of the coolest couples I’ve ever met.
It’s not easy to understand others. In fact, it takes time to really get to know someone. Sometimes we think we know a person only to realize after months — or even after years — that we actually formed a wrong idea of them.
When it comes to dating, we all tend to put on a mask and show the best version of ourselves, and for this reason it also becomes difficult to actually see the real version of the person in front of us.
What follows are five things that can tell you a lot about someone you’re dating.
Last year, my friend Emma was dating a guy, Liam, for whom she was head over heels. They were living in the same neighborhood, but they used to only see each other once every two weeks. Liam was particularly busy at work and he said that was the reason he couldn’t spend more time with Emma.
He often told her he was in love with her, but still, she could feel something was not quite right. “I don’t feel loved. And I don’t feel emotionally secure.” This is how she described her side of things. Later, she found out that…
I used to be one of those impatient people who gave up on things very quickly. However, last year things changed. I kept working on my side hustles even when I couldn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel because a small part of me believed I could succeed.
After a few months, I was so glad to see that my hard work was paying off as money started to come in from all the projects I was working on in my spare time.
Fast forward to today, and I’ve made more than $35,000 from my side hustles…
We’re all born beautiful and unique. Sadly, many of us are convinced of the opposite. In fact, most people believe they’re not enough.
However, authentic people know everyone is different. They know real beauty resides in unicity and are not interested in chasing perfection or status. They don’t worry about other people’s validation.
Authentic people know not everyone will like them, and they’re fine with that. They prefer to be themselves and be valued by fewer people for who they are, than to be appreciated by everyone for who they pretend to be.
If we take a closer look at…
“Anthony, as you know, I’ll travel to Spain tomorrow, my flight is at 7 pm, do you mind if I leave 10 minutes earlier so I can catch the train to the airport?”
“I think it’s better if you leave one hour earlier, just in case. Let’s check the train timetable together.”
“Really? You don’t have to do this.”
“Of course I do. You’ve always worked so hard, and you’re one of the most productive employees here. The least I can do is to make sure you don’t miss your flight. …
Whether you have an entire house for yourself or you share an apartment with other people, living in a clean environment is essential for your mental and physical health.
According to an interesting article published on Very Well Mind, clutter and mess have a negative impact on our mental health. In fact, they may contribute to depression and lead to decreased focus and higher levels of cortisol.
Also, according to an Indiana University study, people with clean houses tend to be healthier than people with messy houses. …
I remember the first time I realized one of my articles was going viral. It was July and I was enjoying a warm Saturday afternoon on the beach. I looked at my phone and saw that an article I had published in June was getting more views than what I was used to — like thousands of views in just a few hours. The numbers were exploding. The following day, that article hit around 58 thousand views.
Obviously, I was over the moon. I couldn’t believe something like that was happening to me. After a few weeks, that article reached…
