Relationships and hypocrisy

If one thing is hard in this life is to have a real connection to another human being. I’m not talking about significant others, romantically, but any kind of connection, to be real, fulfilling. Some people call that to have a “good relationship”. Having a good relationship not only means that both are comfortable with […]

Is it “a” social group? or is it “your” social group? Define your circles

Social groups are something we don’t usually think about. It’s something that’s there or is not. Either way, it’s something we don’t think about because we don’t like to think about it. It’s the magic of “friendship” and social relationships in general we like to believe in: Everything is magical and natural so that we […]

Gifts

Gifts you give… Why do you give gifts?

There is something about gifts many people are confused about. The main reason for that misunderstanding is that they don’t know the fact that they don’t know.

A Venn diagram with two people as groups

We are much like Venn diagrams (You know, a set of things)

A Venn diagram is a way to represent a set of things. Picture a circle, with a name (commonly a capital letter), filled with things, elements. They can vary from being letters or numbers to words and strings. They can be anything, and the set itself is formed because all those elements have something in […]

How much do you share with others?

A relationship is any kind of bond between to things, in this case (and probably the rest of this blog’s article), relating people. When you ask a stranger for the time, you’re creating a connection. With a friend, you have a bond, too. The same with family and any kind of acquaintance. Of course, those […]
