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…

Those Times

I’ve been thinking to start writing again lately but never felt what to write about. I have a lot to say but somehow words don’t come out. It happens sometimes. It’s just as like when artists say “we need inspiration to create art”. So do I. And so there she goes. Travelling, exploring, finding herself…

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.

Learning The Hard Way: Thank You Sri Lanka!

Time to say bye to this experience too. Time to fly away again. It gets even hard to write about it, there is a lot to say, a lot to express and  a lot to lock in that space called heart.  I used to appreciate my experience in China more than anything else in life, for…

What having a crazy daughter means to your parents

When you first step out of your comfort zone, you don’t even realise what you’ll go through when moving abroad, either for a short time or for an unknown and long one. When I first went to Los Angeles to study english, it was just for one short month during summer, when I was in…

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…
