Zenbo Life

It's your life. Plan it. Live it.

Social

  • No man is an island!

    Building relationships especially with persons of similar age range is inevitable in life.  In fact, it is an important aspect of social conditioning that reflects that as humans, we are bound by some mysterious arrangements to befriend individuals who share similar interests and like-passion with us.  These are our peers, our friends.  

    However, identifying with a group of friends or peers comes with its challenges, which are notably associated with the pressure of meeting up with the standards of the group.  This could get sour sometimes especially when one is inspired wrongly and pressured to act in a particular way that negates morality simply because one’s mates are acting that way. 

    What exactly is peer pressure?

  • Most of what we have nowadays as relationships are not what it used to be. Now, it seems we all are in a hurry. We are driven by own selfish inclinations. We want to quickly end a conversation and trot off like wasps into the comfort our solitude offers. We seem to have forgotten the value of social capital.  

    Even for those who claim to sustain relationships, research has proven that it’s no more than a superficial endeavour. They aren’t really connected to their cronies. If this wasn’t so, a research on self-isolation in America would not have revealed that most people have just one person or none at all that they share their personal problems with. Indicative of this is that we all have gotten so paranoid!

  • Don’t you want to live a positively present life? Well, finding the good in others is an essential part of it. However, it can be challenging. It’s especially hard to focus on the good in others when you’ve been disappointed so many times… But let me tell you a secret – when you expect good from others, they feel more motivated to actually do good. Maybe you disagree, but I think that all people are essentially good. Just focus on their intentions if you don’t believe me. Even when people don’t do good things, most of the time, they did have good intentions.

  • We all want to belong, it is our inherent desire, and it’s why we cooperate, support common causes, feel nationalism, and that’s the reason for building villages, or cities.  Fortunately, for us, that desire has been begun with loving parents and siblings in a home, which was our laboratory for experimenting with our potential, beliefs, and identity.

    Family is the first and the most critical place for involving in, as it meets our belonging needs in addition to having people by our side through hard times, providing us with confidence, and helping us to be strong enough to face our problems.

  • You are free to choose your actions and words.  You have the power to change your outcomes.  We all believe this myth; it is a myth because this is not applied to all the situations.  Sometimes we are simply influenced by the social influence circulating us.  We tend to behave based on the environment and the environment is made of people and other living beings along with climatic conditions.

    Social influence and the human mind

  • Love is an amazing feeling.  It is human nature to feel loved.  To identify the telltale signs when someone is in love with you, here are some of the obvious situations that you might experience around the one who has fallen in love with you!

    Physical closeness

  • Have you ever wondered what makes us happy?  Wealth, fame, beauty or strength may give you some temporary joy, but one of the most significant factors for happiness lies behind positivity.

    Positivity is mainly embodied in the way people treat you, especially those who have things in common.  However, luck may not be always on your side to meet only this kind of person.  You will definitely encounter people who have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside.  They may be your friends, co-workers, classmates.  Accordingly, to avoid getting yourself drained dealing with negative people, the tips below are especially focused on helping you out with it.

  • Human beings are social animals and can be highly involved in different kinds of social relationships.  We are connected with many other people in many different ways.  For example, we have family’s relationships, working relations, neighbourhood associations and many other forms of similar connections.

    Some of them may be represented in our life, some may not.  However, there is one particular type that is extremely important for every person.  It is the most helpful, essential, and necessary to have a kind of relationship.  I am talking about friends and associations with them.

    Why is that so important to Have Friends?
