I Am Fascinated By Human Behavior

Why do we do what we do? 37,065 People

    Everyone is being labeled.

    If your sad and can't seem to get passed it you have depression. If you get nervous and want to get away you have anxiety. I personally think that we get carried away in these "mental illnesses" Maybe it's all normal... These feelings are normal. Just because a doctor found a...

    The Bar Scene

    Over in the corner of the bar, I sat, as a spectator. It had been a long day. I had worked a double from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. when the kitchen was closed. Usually I would have worked until closing at midnight, but this was my second double in a row and I was quite exhausted. So...

    We seem to constantly search

    for ourselves as we are always reconditioned into new ways of thinking. We bring on so many different beliefs and personality traits accidentally, that we make confusion of what we really are, inevitable.

    Chasing A Feeling

    I wrote a story long ago by the same title about missing the beach. I wanted that feeling of being on the sand, surfing the waves, and feeling the warm sun on my skin.  If you love the beach, you know the feeling I speak of, and it is indeed worth the chase.The concept has been...

    Why Smart People Can Be So Foolish.

    I don't even know why I'm in this group.

    But human behaviour does have its moments. Though when what's being done is already expected, and the action done is to bring forth a ****** outcome, suddenly, humans and their behaviour isn't at all fascinating, but just typically mundane and irritating.
