How to cope with emotional stress

There are often things in life we are never prepared for. No, matter what we do we can never predict some events. Unfortunately, the world can be a cruel place but it does not mean you have to be a victim. It truly breaks my heart to see the cruelty that others can bring to each other. It is never an easy thing to deal with when someone has done you wrong. Whether it be an emotional betrayal or physical one you can move beyond it. With a little self help and motivation from others you can get over it. However, before we begin I can’t recommend enough how important it is that you seek professional help. Especially for traumatizing events like rape or any physical abuse. Seek professional help. Such as therapy, police protection, whatever it takes to put the abuser and the past behind you.

Patience is a virtue

The older one gets the more they start to realize the value of patience. Value not just in the importance of staying one’s hand but value in the ability to facilitate great things through patience. In today’s society of instant gratification, the epitome of patience represents a span of sitting through commercials on tv or in the theater. One can forget about patience on the internet, the idea is practically non-existent. You have less than 5 seconds to catch someone’s attention on a web page or they are gone. Now if someone is there for more than a minute wow, that is pure gold!

Bizarre beliefs of 1888: New Mexican Witches

The terror of the People-How to catch one Oar witchology is full, detailed and graphic, writes a St. Louis Globe correspondent from New Mexico. Every paleano can tell you their strange habits, their marvelous powers and their baleful deeds. They never injure the dumb animals, but woe to the human being who incurs their displeasure! Few, indeed are bold enough to brave their wrath. If a witch asks for food, wood, clothing, or anything else, none dare say nay. Nor dare any one eat what a witch proffers; for, if he do, some animal, alive and gnawing, will form in his stomach. By day the witches wear their familiar form, but at night dressed in strange animals shape, they fly abroad to hold witch meetings in the mountains to wreak their evil wills.
