Forgiveness

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 21, 2020 Emotions

Forgiveness describes the deliberate and conscious decision to release the feelings of vengeance or resentment towards an individual or group of people who harmed you. This action usually is regardless of whether they deserve forgiveness or not. Understanding what forgiveness does not involve is as essential as understanding what forgiveness means. According to the experts, before you forgive, you must first accept and acknowledge how serious the offense against you could be. Forgiveness does not stand for excusing, condoning, or forgetting offenses. Although forgiveness is crucial to repairing a damaged relationship, it does not obligate the parties to reconcile or release any form of legal accountability to the offense. Instead, forgiveness aims to free the forgiver from corrosive anger and bring peace to their mind. Although it is not clear whether forgiveness demands the re-development of positive feelings, experts say that most forgiveness cases involve eradicating negative feelings. This post...

Understanding Empathy

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 19, 2020 Emotions

What Is Empathy? Empathy is an emotion in which the individual can comprehend or feel what someone else is encountering and the ability to put oneself in another’s position. Being compassionate is the capacity to perceive, learn, and share someone else’s feelings and sentiments. Experiencing sympathy is essential for building connections and making relations stronger by understanding the other person’s situation. It includes acknowledging someone else’s perspective instead of merely one’s own. Why Is Empathy Important? Empathy encourages us to help others, manufacture companionships, settle on suitable choices, and meditate when we see others being harassed.

Amid a challenge or emergency, we must feel like our feelings are acknowledged and perceived by others.

Embrace Change

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 19, 2020 Life

The concept of change is a universal and natural one. Everything that exists is constantly undergoing one form of change or the other. It is impossible to hide from it. Change is necessary for growth in living organisms including humans. This growth transcends the physiological and extends to financial, spiritual or mental. Change helps us move out of our comfort zone and experience life in a totally new and different way. If change is so important and unavoidable, why then is the average human so afraid of it. The major reason is that change tampers with comfort. Change comes with adjustments that can be stressful. On the other hand, people detest change especially when...

The Dangers of Self-Development

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 19, 2020 Life

The average human yarns for perfection, to be free from the shackles of flaws that come in the form of addictions, negative thoughts, dream killers and other minor vices. We will do anything to achieve that Zen-like state where it looks like everything is in order and life simply becomes a sail on a smooth, peaceful ocean. If we don’t achieve such a state of mental utopia, we begin to see ourselves as failures, as people who definitely have faults and should do anything to get it right. This thought in itself is majorly a trap, because that state of ‘perfection’ doesn’t exist anywhere in the world. It is a destination that continues to remain a mirage even as we approach closer. The problem here is that many people have little or no idea that they are chasing shadows. They continue to live in dissatisfaction which causes them not to...

This practice can help you to engage and interact well with people around you. It determines how people from different cultural backgrounds adjust to communicate effectively. This post explains four tips to improve cross-cultural communication. Acknowledge and Embrace Agility The most prevalent barrier to cross-cultural communication is the unwillingness or inability to adapt to change. Most times, people avoid accepting new ideas as a result of unconscious fear. They are afraid that adjusting to a new lifestyle will change their belief or cultural system. If you do not liberate yourself from such assumptions, you will limit your organizational and personal growth. People can become more adaptive to new ideas if they become aware of the subconscious biases and unconscious barriers.
