Please stop yelling…

I really need to talk about this, I feel like there is a huge bubble in my chest, does that sound weird? It’s not the emptiness feeling no, and it’s not like I fell a huge rock setting on my chest Kaman no.. I feel like there is a huge amount of air a huge bubble stopping me from breathing, it starts at my throat all the way till my lower part of my chest, it’s like my throat and lungs are full of cold air!!

I hate it when people yell at me, well you will all say “bit we all do”‘ but here is the thing with me, if you really want to tell me something, try not to scream cuz will get nothing but a silent person, I won’t say one word, no matter what you yell, I just freeze, completely freeze, I don’t respond to screaming or yelling, I’m a calm person my nature, I don’t believe in screaming an yelling, and just because I don’t yell back it doesn’t mean I can’t, it’s just I don’t want to, I will never yell back, or even respond to the person as log as he/she is yelling.

This is a question for all the people who usually yell at other people, why the hell you scream?? It’s not like it makes you stronger, and what ever it is are you trying to tell me, I will definitely get waaaaaaaaaay better if you say it in a lower voice, I’m telling you people I completely freeze, I just HATE yelling, add to that end up crying most if the time, and I hate that too 😦

Please people, please, stop yelling at screaming at each other, I beg you, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.

And I end up hating the person who keeps yelling at me, enno I hear you, bekaffi meshan allah! 😦

“Men are simple,but they’re not stupid” Part 2

Friendayeh wrote,

As we talked in  Part 1 how men are really simple to deal with, but they are diffenetly now stupid, I’ll go int his part about chemistry and blaming men.

Psychologically, all our old words and body language together are our “defense system.” They’re there to defend us against threats and pain – but we use them all the time! We use them from the moment we lay eyes on a man, even before he opens his mouth!

We behave as though we’re in trouble, or not good enough, or about to be hurt – before we even know much at all about the man!

This is where Chemistry comes in.

If the chemistry is strong enough, we’ll sort of sail through the first few months of dating. He won’t pay too much attention to our defenses, even if they irritate him. He’ll pretend to listen while we talk and apologize for misreading our signals.

But then, sooner or later, the chemistry fades a little and the relationship gets real. All our defenses that have kept us from truly connecting with him get even stronger – now we can feel the tension. We can feel the distance between us. We can feel how he’s pulling away.

And we blame him.

And we say – “I should have known he was a jerk.”

 And then your friends support the “he’s a jerk” labelling because they don’t know, anymore than you did, how it all really happened.

We women are all willing to say “I’m not pretty enough,” or “I’m not good enough.” We’re willing to put ourselves down for who we are (and really hurt ourselves).

And beating ourselves up doesn’t help. In fact, it lowers our self-confidence, makes us feel angry about men, and makes things worse.

What does help is to really look at ways we can do things differently.

And sometimes, doing things differently takes different relationship skills.

Real spontaneity and naturalness – Authenticity is very, very attractive to men. Because it communicates CONFIDENCE in ourselves.

But most of the time, our old words and our old patterns actually are telling men, from the moment they talk with us, that we have absolutely NO confidence in ourselves!

The Art Of Listening

 I was talking to one of my friends, she’s been married for almost 2 years now, she was complaining on how things are not going “so great” between the two, after listening to her for more than an hour, she felt much better that she actually was able to “talk” to someone about it, which made me think, when a relationship goes sour, one of the first things to suffer is communication. If you can’t communicate with each other, then there is no possible way to salvage the relationship. The thing to do is to prevent communication from ever being a problem. One of the most important aspects of this is to learn how to be a good listener. I guess what I’m about to say might help a lot:

  1. Give Them Your Undivided Attention
    When your partner wants to talk, put everything else out of your mind and actually be there with them while they are talking. You cannot possibly listen to them if you are thinking about other things you would rather be doing, or have to do.
  2. Listen To What Is Actually Being Said
    This is especially true if you are in a disagreement. It is very easy to pick out the things in what your partner is saying that you want to hear and can throw back at them. This is not some high school debate class where you score points for winning an argument, this is your sweetheart and your actions here and now will dictate the course of the rest of your life together!
  3. Look At Them When They Are Talking To You
    Have you ever tried to talk to someone that refused to make eye contact with you? It is very disheartening, especially when you have something important to say. When talking with your sweetie, actually look at them and not around the room.
  4. Notice the Hidden Emotional Tone of Your Partner
    Very often, your partner won’t say exactly what is on their mind straight away and it is up to you to draw them out. By looking for their emotional tone, through their body language, voice inflections etc., you will get a very good indicator of what is actually bothering them and also how it is affecting them.
  5. Acknowledge Your Partner
    A correct acknowledgement can very often completely resolve a dispute in one go. It has a two-fold effect: 1. It tells your partner that you have heard and understand what they are saying and 2. It makes them feel better by releasing some of the emotional baggage that may have built up on the subject. A good rule of thumb when there is a lot of emotional baggage attached to a situation, is to acknowledge them by repeating in your own words what they have just said to you.
  6. Remain Calm
    If your sweetheart is angry, very often they will lash out at you because you are there and are someone they can take their frustration out on. While this may not be pleasant and the most ideal way to handle a situation, I’m afraid it is part of the job description of being a sweetheart. Realize that it is just a way for your sweetie to vent and resist the urge to get angry back, it will only make things worse.

Happy listening everybody 🙂

Is it time to grow up yet?

 It puzzles me when I look at girls in their twenties and still act like little kids, I mean there is nothing wrong with being a kid ON THE INSIDE, but at a certain point I think we have to grow up, and act according to our age, and respect ourselves in able to others to respect us.

Looking at some Arab American girls (no offense to anyone here, most of my cousins are Arab Americans), I get really shocked by some of their actions, I mean for a girl who was born and raised in the middle east, I find really bazaar to make fun of my mom, dad, or grandparents anywhere, so I can’t even imagine making fun of them IN PUBLIC, such childish behavior will never be acceptable for me and I guess for anybody else!

I know that I just stated a dangerous generalization here, and I’m not saying they are all like that, NO… But for some reason, most of them are, you hear them arguing loud with their parents with no respect what so ever, making fun of them, how “khozo2” they are, making fun of their accents, clothes, and traditions.

When did we become like that? Really?? I look around and I get disgusted when I see some shallow lady in her twenties (or as my Teata syas “3aroos”) acting like 10 years old kid, whining and complaining about everything all the time, for god’s sake .. GROW UP ALREADY!!!

I remember when I used to be in Jordan, I used to visit my Teata and spend the weekend over her house, seriously guys… I used to wait for the weekend cuz I know I’m gonna be spending it with Teata Allah yer7amha, listen to her wonderful stories, east her amazing food ::sigh:: allah yer7amha, I envy those who still have Teata’s and Seedo’s around, guys please if you read this, the next time you visit your grandparents, kiss them for me Allah y5aleekom.

On hating salad and losing weight!

 salad.jpg

I have a confession to make, I HATE SALAD!!! but first of, I wanna state that I tried everything I can to love it, but no way I will ever do..

I’ve been eating it for the past week everyday as an attempt to lose weight, yeah yeah yeah … I joined the club, I was trying to gain some weigh, but things got out of control, and I gained more than I wanted to!!!

So as I said, I was eating a bowl of salad everyday for lunch, no breakfast, and a light lunch, what do think the results should be??? I lost couple of lbs?? Guess again… I gained TWO PUINDS!!!!

I mean what the heck!!! I don’t even like salad, I’ve been forcing myself to eat it, after all the salad I ate, I assure you, if you take a sample of my blood and put it under the microscope, you will no find any white or red cells, you will find little pieces of lettuce swimming around, and I still managed to gain weight!!

menu_salad.jpg

I am so mad at myself, back in September I was as skinny as 120lbs (well, I was so under weight, but I didn’t mind really) , I guess for a 5’11 girl I would look my best when I’m 130 to 135lb but now I’m at 142 😦 and need to lose those or else I will go through bad depression!!!

I hate looking at the mirror, I hate wearing my clothes, it feels a little tight 😦 and I’m NOT buying clothes based on this weigh, NO NO and NO!!!

So ladies (and gentlemen) who wants to lose weight so we can start like a support group for each other? And I’m serious!!!
