I was telling my friend about how some dude flirted with me at work and how disgusting and unethical it was and she was all “That’s horrible! I mean, I would understand if you were provoking or wearing inappropriate clothes, but…”
EXCUSE YOU. Even if I was naked that still doesn’t justify that he messed with me, AT WORK even.
Ugh. I like you, you’re my friend, but please shut the fuck up.
My dad’s always been an iPhone lover since he got his first one, but ever since he bought my brother an android phone, he’s been kind in love with it. I told him I bought a Galaxy for me and now he just got a Nexus 4 for himself - even more up to date than my phone! I’m still stuck with Andoird 4.1 on S3 while he’s already enjoying 4.2. u.u~ He’s kinda in love with it, haha~ Now on to convert my mom and my other brother to Android devices. /o/
I thought the “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” was one of the principles of christianity, how come some Christians condemn other people and say they’re not people?
Through another perspective, if God creative everything, that means He also created gays, people of color and other religions as well, right?
Last but not least, if only God can judge and pass judgement, shouldn’t we stop judging other people and let them live the way they want and let God judge them Himself? In judging other people, wouldn’t humans compare themselves to God? I thought that was a sin?
There was a reason why I posted about panic attacks early today. I had a briefing with my boss today and I had to show him something he asked me to do. I was scared shit my attacks would come back before or after the presentation, but as I should have expected, I was okay. I guess they stopped for good now. I did have a sudden rush of anxiety - my fingers are still trembling and my heart still beating fast, but I’m still perfectly in control of myself.
And the briefing went a lot better than expected. I should’ve had more faith in myself. xD
Actually, I haven’t had a panic attack since 2009, which I consider a great improvement (although I still deal with occasional anxiety rushes that help start panic attacks).
One thing that really helped me was getting acquainted with Buddhism. More like, its way of thinking and philosophy than religion itself (look it up, it’s really interesting). I guess in my case what triggered the attacks were thoughts of “what if…?” when dealing with a situation. I always thought about the worst possible scenarios where everything I did was in vain, a failure and couldn’t possibly help myself.
Except I could. The thing is that, to me, understanding these possible outcomes would always be present in every situation ever and getting used to them made everything better. Instead of wasting time thinking about bad what ifs, I started thinking ahead and realized that if something bad happen, I’ll just have to deal with it, either by accepting it and moving on, or by realizing I can still change it somehow and turn the outcome into something more favorable to me.
Bad outcomes will happen sometimes. Planning is good, but there’s never a 100% chance that it will actually happen. Planning helps increase the percentage of it actually happening but you have to undertand you can’t prevent external forces from interfering with your work. It happens and you shouldn’t feel bad about it.
Reading didn’t help in my case. Grabbing a book and putting myself in someone else’s shoes made things worse because every time the character did something bad or embarassing, I’d imagine myself in the same situation and that made things worse.
The best thing to me about dealing with panic attacks was that suffering it on a specific situation meant I could learn from it so the next time something similar happened, I wouldn’t suffer a panic attack again. I was prepared.
This sounds obvious, but believe it or not, it helped the best: calm down, try to take a deep breath and surround yourself with positive thoughts. You may think this is something hard to achieve because, well, you’re panicking, but it’s not. Don’t wait until your next attack to do this, do it right now, even if you’re perfectly fine right now. Get used to positive thinking, make it something natural to your every day rather than something you use to calm down. If you do this, the next time you have an attack, calming down won’t be so hard.
I don’t know if I’ll ever have another attack, but I know that so far, I’ve been fine. I know this varies from person to person and people deal with it differently, but perhaps sharing my experience will help someone. :)
I got a haircut and now I look like a kid. u_u
For the record, this is what my hair looked like before.
Soooo, not only is this a horrible week, but I also get a cold to complete my day. Trust me to get a cold when temperatures are over 35C. Wonderful.
Pelo menos uma vez por mês minha mãe posta no facebook o quanto ela odeia o programa do Faustão.
Todo domingo ela senta a bunda na frente da TV pra assistir essa bosta.
E o pior é que aí quem não pode jogar na sala sou eu. :’|
I had a weird dream tonight that Xillia had been released here and everyone wanted to know if they were going to include Jap audio so I popped in the disc and SURPRISE, it didn’t have Eng or Jap audio, it was entirely in German.
Then I woke up.
PS: Jude’s German voice was manly as hell in my dream.
For some reason Ubiworkshop won’t accept any of my credit cards and I really want to buy The Fall OTL GODAMMIT UBI, JUST FUCKING TAKE MY MONEY
