Taking Responsibility for your Life

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 17, 2020 Life

There is no doubt that you have been admonished to take responsibility for your life a number of times from various sources. Life itself can be so stressful at times that it leaves one confused and in search of the next right step to take. It can be easy to turn the blame on others and the circumstances surrounding your life whenever you hit rock bottom. The question is how long will this go on. At some point you will have to take the bull by the horn and become responsible for yourself. Choosing to step up to the game and take responsibility for yourself is one of the most important things you can do for your life. It puts you in full control of your future, at a position where everything that happens to you does so because of something else you did, not due to another random cause....

Supporting Your Partner

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 16, 2020 Social

People enter relationships in search of a number of mutual benefits. One of such is the support that comes from having someone to lean on when we face challenges. This support isn’t one that comes occasionally. It should be something that is readily available at any time of any day. This support is needed especially when one’s partner is going through a major change or transition in their life, such as during the start of a new business or the loss of a family member. If one party in the relationship refuses to bring their own quota to the table, the other may begin to feel detached and unwanted, leading to a toxic relationship. The support from partners can come in different forms, such as financial, emotional or spiritual support. The most important among these is the emotional support, because it serves as a basis for all the others. For...

Managing your Boundaries - How to Manage the People around You

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 16, 2020 Social

It is said that the people around you have the power to make or mere your life. Yes, that’s just the fact; the type of people you allow in your life is in a perfect position to make you fly and reach your highest peak, and on the contrary, they can also draw you down to your lowest. This is why you must take your boundaries seriously – protect them with your life if need be because there lies both your present and future. But before we proceed to talk about the way you manage your boundaries, you should ask yourself, what and where is my boundary? It is simple, your boundary is ‘you,’ and you are your boundary! Your boundary is your convenience, your space, your everything; in other words, call your boundary your life. So, the kind of people you allow in there must be reviewed because if...

Lifelong Learning - Learning Beyond School

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 15, 2020 Mind

Schooling goes beyond attending high school, college, and university. Nothing is wrong with it, though, but when we continue living with those things we have learned from these formal education systems, it becomes a problem. Life itself is a school, and every stage has its lessons; it is a pity that some people had either stopped learning about life or have refused to heed to her lessons. Many people have different understandings of the term “lifelong learning,” but no matter how you view it, the point is that you are going to end up a better person. In this article, you are going to be talking from both sides of the term “lifelong lesson.” The point remains that, no matter how committed we are in formal education, always remember that the school of life has the best lessons. But don’t get it wrong, formal education is as important as the...

How to Be Assertive

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 15, 2020 Social

Have you ever been in a situation when you know you should speak up for yourself, and you don’t? Or maybe in times you let others take advantage of you and accept other’s interests, thoughts, or feelings. Often, we don’t speak up about our needs and boundaries to not sound rude. That is why nice people are screwed for being too empathetic while giving more weight to other rights, wishes, desires, and wants. The problem is nice people are not always nice as their primary concern is to be perfect in other people’s eyes than to themselves. They tend to lie frequently, and their actions are led by other person judgments. All their affections, kindness, and concern tend to wane over time, which gradually results in more sacrifices and resentment. So, how do we get rid of this? The key to avoiding this is by learning how to be assertive....

Learn from Discomfort

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 14, 2020 Life

Let’s talk science, to be precise, Newton’s first law. As he states, a body will maintain its initial state unless given an extra force. No, I won’t explain how this makes sense by talking about the other 2 laws. But, here’s the question, can you relate this law with your life and daily being? We often feel lazy, scared, worried, anxious, and all the psychological dilemma when we even think of doing something new and go on a cruise to search for the undiscovered. This happens because there’s a part of us that resists change and which works to make the inertia law accurate. You must understand by now that feeling uncomfortable is actually a sign of change. Now, you might ask, so can’t change be both good and bad, and either have a 50% chance of happening? You are absolutely right. Everything in this world is uncertain and can...

How to Ask for Help and Why Should You Do It

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 14, 2020 Social

Be it to strangers or even close ones, asking for help is an inevitable thing to do. To say the least, it’s something that we all have done at some point in our life, no matter how uncomfortable it made us feel. Regardless of how “mundane” a help may seem, asking for it is not that easy and is weirdly uncomfortable to many. According to neuropsychologists, the fear of asking for help is something that’s embedded in human nature. And, this adds up to the fact that we all have it to some extent. While the degree of fear of asking for help may differ from person to person, sometimes the crippling discomfort that comes with it tends to get in the way of us from getting help. If you happen to be a person who’s a bit too wary when it comes to asking for help, keep on reading...
