Trust, Disgust & Pie Crust

Hi Guys !

I planned to write today, but it's almost midnight and I have one unfinished sentence. 

Today I had my fourth driving lesson and it didn't go as smoothly as the precedent three ones. I basically can't turn, because I start way too late and it goes wrong, but my instructor is very patient so I should be fine. Or at least I hope that.

However he also said to me today : "Aleksandra, you should trust other road-users much more" and my brain was like "Are you kidding me???" - this basically made me highly doubt that I'm ever going to pass my driving test, which caused that I got into a bad mood. To brighten up my day I decided to buy 5SOS' new album SOUNDS GOOD FEELS GOOD! If you know me well enough, I almost never leave the mall with one thing. The other thing I bought was Fall Out Boy's last album (I guess) which is AMERICAN BEAUTY. I listened to it so many times, but let's be honest Novocaine gives me a headache. 

This post was going to be about trust, but there's not much I can say about it. However, during my last exam session I was reading my Political Theories and International Institutions book and there was a really nice paragraph about it.

"The fear of becoming dependent actually means that we're scared to trust others. Therefore we start practicing deference reflexes. The shame of being dependent causes that the trust and bond between people is being ruined. To learn how to trust others, we need to stop being scared of getting hurt."
- Sennett 

"The feeling of self-worthiness dependents on the question if others can trust us."
- Levinas

"To be trustworthy we need to feel that we're needed."
- P. Ricœr 

I think it's funny I found those in a chapter about capitalism and economy!

That's all for today, I'm really tired now, so I hope this post makes sense haha! Next week I'm going to write about me being a Vegetarian for one week :) This week I drank 2.5 liters of water instead of 1.5 and I already noticed some small differences, so I hope I can keep this up. Sunday I'm starting one week without meat! Like I tweeted back this week, I wanted to try Meatless November, but that might be too much and I don't want to feel bad about my possible failure. 

Love y'all,

Different Definition

Hi Guys ! 

I'm sitting in the kitchen right now, waiting at my Bunny to hop out of its cage. I have it since three days and it's still a little scared, but it's doing better :) It's so cute! I've never had a bunny before, so I'm reading every day a little about these mysterious animals haha!

It's all about compromises. My mom wanted to buy a pug, I wanted to buy a cat, so in the end we bought a Bunny. It's still chewing on hay, absolutely not in the mood to leave the cage I guess! But that's not what my Post will be about... 

I want to write a small note to somebody, who is a representative of a certain mentality. So I basically want to write to all the cool kids who are like-minded.

I am a Scorpio, which means I am quite good at analysing people's behaviour. I'm not an expert, but I am good at it. So here comes my story : A while ago I met a guy, we went out and everything seemed to be fine. However, I noticed that he has this weird way of looking at others. He was very confident and in my opinion he was convinced that everything he did in life was the absolute best. 

I'm not saying that his approach to life is bad - it is good. If he enjoys it, that's perfectly fine with me, but those kind of people need to understand that there isn't one model of a happy human being. We are all different and every one of us was defined by so many factors. Some people don't feel like opening up in front of everyone. Others feel great about telling all their future plans. Some people eat chocolate piece by piece. Others bite into the chocolate bar. No matter which one of them you are, both are doing the right thing. 

If someone isn't into talking, it means they are good listeners. It doesn't mean you have to convince them to talk more. If someone doesn't like some sort of music, it doesn't mean their taste in music is bad. If someone doesn't feel like bungee-jumping, it doesn't mean they are wasting their life. 

It's that simple. 

If you notice that someone is different than you, don't try to change them. If that person asks you or shows you that they would like to do things differently in life - help them. Don't push them! It makes them feel uncomfortable. It makes them like you less, not more. You are not the perfect example of a human being. You are only the perfect definition of "How to be Yourself". 

This means that there are no borders. Even when someone goes beyond your border, it's still art!
