That inevitability called destiny

That inevitability called destiny

Call it inescapable, inevitable, inexorable, fate, luck or misfortune, chance. How many ways can you call destiny? An ancient legend says that our destiny is already written before we are born and will guide our whole life; if this is true it has a strange way of doing things. Yes, because I have noticed that when there have been big changes in our lives, the one that started it all … Read more

Modern terms for old habits

Modern terms for old habits

For some time now, terms have been coined on the web to describe certain attitudes that seem to be gaining ground. These attitudes on some sites are defined as trendy but they are not new behaviors. Technology allows us to communicate at great distance but inevitably sometimes it happens that it takes us away from the awareness that there is a human being on the other side. For this reason, … Read more

BODY SHAMING, an endless practice

BODY SHAMING, an endless practice

What can I say my friends, it happened again and apparently, the total impunity towards this practice pushes the most stupid to express their unsolicited opinion making life impossible for others. What is BODY SHAMING? BODY SHAMING is an English term for the hateful and very popular practice of insulting someone because of their physical appearance. You can be insulted in a more or less veiled. You can undergo appreciation … Read more

Origin English Flag

Origin English Flag

Not everyone knows that the cross of St George, which even today identifies England throughout the world, was not invented on the island of tea (it did not originate there either), but rather on a peninsula: Italy. Speech from Shakespeare’s Henry V ‘Once more unto the breach, dear friends’, ending with the battle cry, ‘God for Harry! England and St George!” A little history on St George’s cross Legend has … Read more

The value of respect in my opinion

The value of respect in my opinion

While it may seem fairly simple to define what respect means, it really isn’t. This consideration is due to the fact that I realized that many people think they know what respect is but I got the very impression that they do not. I am also quite convinced that you agree with me because you too are convinced that you know what respect is and that this is less and … Read more

My brief reflection on life

My brief reflection on life

You never stop learning in life even though eventually people have a tendency to always fall back on the same mistakes. The experience needed to understand this gift is certainly so immense that without a shadow of a doubt, I am sinning in arrogance just thinking about writing this article. In the short time I have been on this earth, it has quickly become clear to me that humanity can … Read more

Pathological depressive disorder

Pathological depressive disorder

When talking about depression in the psychiatric field, it would be more correct to call it a depressive disorder. Etymologically speaking, the word depress describes the action of bringing something down to a lower level. It is synonymous with humiliation, despondency and the like. What is depression Depression is a real psychiatric illness that should not be taken lightly because it is far from rare and the consequences are both … Read more

Be the change you want to see happen in the world

We are often trapped in the awareness of ourselves as the only central point in the universe. Although self-improvement as an individual is a necessary prerequisite, according to this phrase attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, it is not enough. Be the change you want to see happen in the world. We are called upon to see ourselves no longer as self-centred beings but as part of a species that has the … Read more

The village idiot, a story with a moral

The village idiot, a story with a moral

In every village or small town, there is always one person who is singled out by others as the village idiot. This figure has become exemplary and rhetorical. Particularly in the country where I live, one can hardly come across anyone who has not called someone else a village idiot. I am therefore going to tell you in my own way about a popular legend whose true origin we do … Read more

The seven vices or deadly sins - a reflection

The seven vices or deadly sins – a reflection

It occurred to me to write this reflection because a short time ago, I learned of the existence in my country of the national day dedicated to Dante Alighieri. He was an Italian writer, poet and politician who was born in Florence in 1265 and died in Ravenna in September 1321. Among his works, I have always been struck by the part of the Divine Comedy that describes the seven … Read more

The power of True Love

The power of True Love

There almost always comes a time in life when one wonders about the true meaning of true love. The answer to the questions that come to mind with age is not the easiest. There are those who define love according to a simple evolutionary theory and those who instead invest this feeling with a purely spiritual and transcendental meaning. Those who support the first hypothesis are usually convinced that love … Read more

Affective dependence, a reflection

Sooner or later, I think most people have wondered whether they are suffering from so-called ’emotional dependency’. If you’ve reached the point where you found this article, you’re probably wondering that yourself. Apparently, emotional dependency is not on the list of behavioural disorders in my country (Italy). Although perhaps it would be better to say that it is not listed at the moment. I think it is important to understand … Read more

New year, the right perspective

New year, the right perspective

In the course of my life, I have come to suspect that the place where one lives contributes a great deal to shaping the individual. I think it is plausible to think that the smaller and more isolated a place is, the more closed and limited the thinking of its inhabitants will be from a social point of view. I think it might be reasonable to consider the hypothesis that … Read more

Today I’m going to share with you an experience I had that got me thinking about the current situation. At the time of writing, there is certainly a lot of concern about the labor shortage.

Without mincing words, I believe that there is not enough work for everyone but … Read more

Self indulgence in my opinion

Self indulgence in my opinion

When I try to understand what self-indulgence is, I always ask myself a question: Was the egg or the chicken born first? Some people think that the egg was born first because the first eggs would be those of some reptiles that lived about 350 million years ago. It is a kind of reasoning that has its own logic but some think that is not the answer to this question. … Read more

Obviously, don’t think about considering this article as something that has a philosophical reliability or use it for some … Read more

Careful what you wish for, the wish might come true

The thing Mrs. Ada wanted most of all was to retire. She did a rather heavy job that took her away from home from morning to night.

The sociologists and psychologists who have made history for their respective fields of expertise, without a shadow of … Read more

Stupidity is inversely proportional to compassion

There are things that we only become more aware of in difficult times. “We all fall down together and we all get up together.

Third Autumn Week

I was getting into a bad habit because I had started to bore you with my daily diaries. I soon realized that this is not a good idea.

This Monday was an ordinary day. Like many of you, I have no particular sympathy for this day since it is the beginning of another very tiring and endless week.

Since I was born in this period, it shouldn’t give me this kind of feeling, but the more the summer is going away, the more I find myself … Read more
