Did we forget about Empathy?

“When I get ready to talk to people, I spend two thirds of the time thinking what they want to hear and one third thinking about what I want to say.” – Abraham Lincoln – Did we forget about Empathy? I feel so. We’re in 2019, in an era covered by tech, business, money, meaningless…

Il Mio Amore Per La Cina

*I apologise to the ones who can not read this, but I had to write it in my native language* – Decido di intitolarlo così il mio articolo su quel Paese che mi era tanto sconosciuto, tanto lontano e che adesso porto con me, nel cuore: la Cina. Ho letto e continuo a leggere i…

My Inner Story – Part I: A Heavy Heart

Emotions, where to begin.. Breath in, breath out. I don’t think I would ever write something like this, but I feel I have to do it. And making it public can only help facing my fears even better. This post is about my life.  When I was 17, I decided that my life was too…

Dear Inner Self, I Can’t Understand You!

You know that time of life where you wish to say so many things but then you end up saying nothing? That’s me since childhood, every now and then. Not good with spoken meaningful words, so I write. Being English not my first language I am making and probably will always make some mistakes, however…

What Walt Disney Did Not Teach Us, Life Did

I am from the “Walt Disney” generation of girls, so yes, I am a dreamer after all, though I’ll turn 27 in a bit, I still dream about my future Prince like a little girl. Because at the end, we all are dreamers, even if we won’t tell our best friends not to sound ridiculous. What…

The book I’m reading tells me to write, write and write..

It’s been almost a week now that I am reading the book I mentioned in one of my posts before: “Emotional Intelligence 2.0” . “What distinguishes human beings is that we are capable of positive change. This book succinctly explains how to deal with emotions creatively and employ our intelligence in a beneficial way.”   (The…

How do you feel VS What do you think?

“At last a book that gives ‘how to’s’ rather than just ‘what to’s.’ We need no more convincing that emotional intelligence is at the core of life success. What we need are practical ways of improving it. Bradberry and Greaves’ brilliant new book is a godsend. It will change your life.”   – The New York…
