    Social Bubbles

    I don't know if you ever get the feeling of being squeezed between what I like to call "social bubbles". It's the social space that people create around them which includes themselves and their "pack". Even if the "pack" is absent, there's still no space for anybody else in the...

    And this is still true.

    No, even more true.  Even people who were supposedly "trusted beyond doubt" showed their true colors. Nothing hurts more than betrayal by family.

    Friendship and Business Don't Mix

    I have this female friend since forever...which goes to show you that the old saying about men and women can't be friends (without envolving sex in any way, shape or form...) may be false. We consider ourselves family, rather than friends, and that alone should be a testimony to...

    usually about 10 weeks into a new friendship it spills over, then when you look back you see that the truth really was revealed much earlier on and it was overlooked...on the premise of hope and/or lonliness

    Is It Just Me Or,

    has anybody else realised that most people never make the effort to contact you? As though you constantly make the effort with them? What if there was no effort from your part - well, then there would be no communication at all. But you know, I don't think the majority of people...
