How Are Narcissistic Empaths Dangerous?

A narcissist and an empath can coexist in one person’s psyche. To be clear, a narcissist lacks empathy for other people. The term narcissism comes from a Greek myth in which a Greek kid named Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection in a pool of water when he spurned the advances of Echo, a nymph. He fell in love with himself because he didn’t know any better; he might have been born that way.

What It Really Means to Take Care of Yourself

We often misconstrue self-care as a form of material value. By material form, it is implied that we may treat self-care as blanket-happiness. We often use external costs as a way to exemplify self-care, be it money, clothes, and the most important, social media. More or less, we compile many of these external pieces of material value to ensure that we are self-assured that we are properly taking care of ourselves.

What Wisdom Has Taught Me About Noise

Noise is a distraction. Noise causes you to lose focus. Many lose focus because they are bored, busy, distracted, or in the wrong place (job, church, relationship, city, school, etc.). Getting by yourself is often needed to get rid of the noise. Isolation is not always bad if you use it positively. If you use isolation to improve, you are ok. Isolation should never be permanent; it is only temporary so that you can remove the noise that has overtaken your life. Isolation should never be to the point that no one knows nothing about you. Be careful and be wise.

What is Heaven Like?

When we think of Heaven, we usually think of white marble gates, glistening waters, and flowering fields where children and loved ones skip around and idle along in ever-sunny days. We dream of singing angels and harps, puffy white clouds and light emanating from Jesus as we sit down and talk to Him. However, are these images truthful or just constructs we’ve borrowed time and time again in writing and the media?

What Wisdom Has Taught Me About Celebration

Celebrations are the best. There is nothing better than celebrating a win. Now a win is different for everyone. A win can be your team won the Super Bowl, the Women's World Cup, the High School State Championship or you came in first in your race. A win can be a great doctor's report, the number of pounds lost, the number of the days you have been sober or have been free from a vice.

Spotting Frenemies & Removing Them From Your Life

A frenemy may or may not be the first person that walks up to you at school or work attempting to befriend you. Some of them actually do take advantage of the fact you are in public to try to lure you into friendship as one frenemy did to me. A frenemy is a friend who is also an enemy, one who looks at you with kindness but backstabs you all the time without you knowing it.

My Business Idea: Sugar-free Asian Sauces

I once made sugar free lemon sauce using stevia, cornstarch, and lemon juice. The sugar-free lemon sauce is possible by using lemonade from Simply Brand. Simply juice brands are the ones I get on a regular basis. The sugar-free lemon sauce is just as good as the real thing, which has so much sugar in it. If it were sold in a bottle, I’d find bottles with high fructose corn syrup in it.

This Is How to Know If Someone Is Lying to You

When a person contradicts a story one too many times, or can’t seem to keep a story straight, that is a fabrication. If the liar pauses for breath while making a barrier, they are lying to you because they are sitting behind something like a vase, or plugging in their phone using the oven plug. If someone pauses while you are asking them a direct question, this may be a sign of lying.

Why I Love Watching The Show: Criminal Minds

Criminal Minds is a crime drama on CBS. The show began September 22, 2005, and has been on for 14 seasons. Next season is going to be it's last. I am very sad about that. I am a die-hard Criminal Minds fan. I still watch the reruns as if I have never seen them before even though I can tell what the episode will be about within the first minute or less.

What Wisdom Has Taught Me About The Promises of God

I have always understood that standing on the promises of God and believing the promises of God are essential to our Christian walk. A promise is a vow that is not to be broken. However, many of us have made many promises to people, whether we meant to or not we have not kept them. Sometimes when we made the promise we didn't have any intention of keeping it, they were just idle words to get what we wanted from the person or persons.
