Trust VS Mistrust

Have you ever heard of Erik Erikson’s Psychosocial theory? He believed that in order to grow up as a healthy adult, we must pass eight stages. These are the TRUST VS MISTRUST, AUTONOMY VS SHAME AND DOUBT, INITIATIVE VS GUILT, INDUSTRY VS INFERIORITY, IDENTITY VS ROLE CONFUSION, INTIMACY VS ISOLATION, GENERATIVITY VS STAGNATION, and finally EGO INTEGRITY VS DESPAIR.  For now, we are going to focus on the first stage which is TRUST VS MISTRUST. Why is the development of trust important? This stage begins right when the baby is born into the world and until he or she reaches 18 … Continue reading Trust VS Mistrust

ISIS Threats In The PH

In line with this months’ latest news about the #MarawiClash and #ResortsWorldAttack, I can’t help but fear for my country, the Philippines. There has been an on going rumor that the ISIS threat in our country is true and to be honest, it scares me. I look at what happened with Syria and I cannot bear to even imagine it happening here. The Philippines is a peaceful country with a buncha crimes here and there but nothing serious. Unlike the news we have been hearing nowadays. There has been bombings, gunshots, rallys, and the looming threat of a nationwide Martial … Continue reading ISIS Threats In The PH

To The Women That Get Mad At The Other Woman | An Open Letter

I know how you feel.  After learning hard lessons during high school, I’ve always considered myself as a woman who uplifts other women instead of putting them down. That was before a foxy batchmate decided to seduce my first boyfriend right under my nose – and on my birthday week too! Instead of getting upset at my then boyfriend, I immediately got upset at the woman who decided to wrap her sticky tentacles all over him.  In the mind of 19 year old me, it was the other woman’s fault. She clearly knew that he was in a relationship. It … Continue reading To The Women That Get Mad At The Other Woman | An Open Letter

What’s up?

Hey everyone! I know things have been a little slow in my blog and I humbly apologize for that. I promised myself to stay dedicated to this project but that’s what having a baby does to you. It’s hard to find a little time for yourself during the first few months but I am hoping that things will start to get better. Do I regret being a mom?  No. Never. I love my little angel, but two or four hours to myself a day would be cool. Sadly, our nanny has deserted us in search for greener pastures.  So what … Continue reading What’s up?

Drawn

I am drawn to the water, But I do not know how to swim. Funny, isn’t it? In the water, I am at peace At the same time, I also fear for my life. I am drawn to you, But I do not know who you are. Funny, isn’t it? How I look for you in every person I meet, How every time my phone rings A little spark emerges in my heart with hopes of you. You are my water, And I wait for you to take me.

Why Do You Cheat?

If you are unsatisfied or unhappy in the relationship that you are in now, the easy way out is not by cheating. Why do some people cheat? I know from experience (my ex did this to me) that some people use it as an easy way out of the relationship since they are too cowardly to sit down and talk about it. Others I learned were just curious, which is really an asshole-y move too. But what about those who continuously do it, over and over again? I was sitting on the porch as I ate my dinner when I … Continue reading Why Do You Cheat?
