How can you heal your emotional wounds?

We often wish we had never been hurt, we think that life would be easier this way. Sometimes there is pain we cannot carry on with.

These experiences are not always pleasant and there are wounds created, some deeper some not so deep, similar to physical wounds or scratches. What can cause mental health issues is staying …

Change as a choice in modern societies

Identity is a social construction, this is what you learn when studying Social Sciences. The construction of the social identity. The social construction of gender, the social construction of reality and so on. How do we define identities? The main indicators of differentiation and definition of identities are race, gender, social class, age, sexual orientation, (dis)abilities, ideology, religion. This works as a social agreement between the members. The way “others” are represented is the key for the understanding of the truth and how reality is …

Self-sabotage and how you can become your own biggest block for your personal and professional growth

It can be from something small to something big, as to change job, leave a marriage or working on mental health issue that are blocking our whole life!

(Toxic) positivity and how words and big emotions can change the picture

We hear a lot about positivity, positive mindset, positive attitude, positive thinking. I will start with an ironic fact. People nowadays claim to be more aware of mental health issues, they try ways (usually band aids), they promote positivity as a way of living and still they suffer more from anxiety and depression.   Why is that? Let me explain. How often is it that when you have a hard time, someone tells you: “Come on, be positive!” or “Don’t be so negative” “It’s not …

New normality

In the middle of the autumn, another lockdown for everyone. For me it was more or less expected, not sure if we could have avoided it, as most of the people were tired of living with restrictions. No surprise, as it’s in the human nature that people want to be and feel free!

Women, these beautiful people

My interest to know, explore and research more about women came after i had the course of Gender Studies, as i was following my studies in Social Anhtopology. This was my second University degree and it was a very conscious decision taken, when i was 35 years old. My first degree was in Computer Engineering, so it was my personal need (and about time) to finally get busy with Social Sciences, actually what i always wanted to do! Back then me-time and my mental wellbeing …
