Why talking about our problems helps so much?
Headset on, get a glass of wine and be ready for gossip!
This is how I prepare myself for a long phone conversation with my friends during a pandemic when socializing is not acceptable. Or with a friend who lives a hundred miles away, and unfortunately, I have a lot of them far from me.
I love sharing exciting news, happy moments, or even sad feelings or troubles with my besties and of course, I love to hear what is going on with them as well!
Have you ever felt relieved after a chat with your friends? Have you ever found a solution after talking to someone about your problem, even the other didn`t give you any answers?
Talking about your feelings definitely has their benefits. Sometimes you just need someone to listen and other times you feel better after complaining to others. You might don’t even need advice, talking through problems give you a solution as well. Once you have processed your difficulties and get it out of your mind, it helps to let it go or come up with a “how-to-deal-with-it” plan. It reduces stress and helps you to ease your heavy thoughts. That`s why talking is important and I love having great friends to practice it.
You never meet someone by accident, all people you bump into is a blessing or a lesson. Someone steps into your life to teach you a lesson, next time you step into someone else’s to teach them something.
Easy, isn’t it? 😀 Continue reading
Do you have a lot of friends? I used to have a lot around me but then life happened and quite a few of them moved to a different country or town. I accepted (nothing I can do about it, can`t I?) that we cannot meet as often as we did before. In the meantime, I am grateful for friends who still live close by.
Well… relatively… living in London, you have to travel long to meet someone.. I don’t really mind when my commute is longer than I would expect. The price is always seeing my friends, which worth the effort. Continue reading
We are all going through easier and harder periods in our life. I love to see my friends when they are doing well or get back on track after a bad era. I cannot tell enough how proud I am of them. Continue reading
I have never been out of Europe so planning a trip to Morocco was totally new to me and absolutely exciting as well. I didn’t really know what to expect. I read a lot of blogs and reviews, even ordered a travel book to be ready for this new adventure…
This holiday was decided and planned very quickly… I had a chat with my friend who wanted to go there but was not sure with who and when. I told her that I have been playing with a thought to go there as well and that’s how it started… Continue reading
So many memories. So many feelings. So many experiences. So many deep conversations. When do you have to give up on it? Do you have to at all?
Once, someone told me, you can manage only around 100 people in your life. Someone has to fall out to give space to someone new. I always think about this when an emotional distance wedge a rope between me and a friend and a friend became a stranger. Or at least someone who is not in my life anymore. Continue reading
It’s cold, it’s crowded, it’s not the cheapest winter program to do but still… once during the winter season, you have to go to Winter Wonderland.
This year I had been there twice – Am I going to be a fan? Hm… haven’t decided yet but it could be really fun visiting it with a friend. At least it’s a chance to hang out together for a few hours and do something different. Continue reading
Christmas is coming and everybody is desperate to find a perfect gift to their loved ones. I like to find personalized gift ideas which I know the person will like it well. Birthdays, Xmas, Anniversaries or for any big event I make an effort to find the right gift. Most of the time I do it very well, but sometimes I just do not have any idea and stress myself out because the clock is ticking. Continue reading
Have you ever been mad at your friends? Of course, you had been… Let’s be honest, friendship is as the same as any relation – different personalities, dreams, desires, plans, ways of thinking. It is normal to have a disagreement between friends.
I had been angry with my friends lately. They decided to move to Spain a few months ago. They are still in London, but since then I haven’t really heard from them. We always tried to plan a night out but never happened. They were too busy with other stuff… Pf… Who wasn’t? They finished their job months ago and – in my mind – the only thing they had to do is packing. Of course, I didn’t know the small but important details such as they haven’t found a house in Spain yet, they haven’t found a new housemate who will take over their rooms and so on.
How should I know? They didn’t tell me these! I only knew (from my point of view) that they avoid me. I felt down because I knew our days are counted. Of course, I am going to visit them, it will be a great opportunity to explore Alicante, but I badly wanted to have time with them before they jump in the car and start their journey.

Do you keep your promises?
I am a person who keeps her words. I expect the same from others but this is not happening very often. Well… depends on the person. I should be more aware of this, but I tend to forget and assume the best from everyone.
I don’t think believing in people is a problem but after a while, it can be really disappointing. And that’s why I avoid asking favours. Well… I do, but very rarely and mainly when someone else is in a need. When my brother was looking for a job, I tried to remember all of my contacts who might be in a position to know some places where need an extra hand. Also, when my boyfriend needed some information one of the IT courses he was thinking to start his career at, another friend promised to give information about but it never happened… Continue reading
