The Mountain Is You

This book is about self-sabotage. Why we do it, when we do it, and how to stop doing it—for good. Coexisting but conflicting needs create self-sabotaging behaviors. This is why we resist efforts to change, often until they feel completely futile. But by extracting crucial insight from our most damaging habits, building emotional intelligence by…

Alazia

The fear that you’re no longer able to change. After so many years wondering what kind of person you were going to become one day, somewhere you forgot that this question actually has an answer, and that ‘one day’ will eventually arrive… if it hasn’t already.

Swish Fulfillment

The feeling of delicate luck after casually tossing something across the room and hitting your target so crisply and perfectly that you feel no desire to even attempt another shot, which is a more compelling argument for the concept of monogamous love than anything sung to a guitar. Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in…

On the Times you Feel Down!

We all showcase our happy moments, our moments of victory and pride, but fail to express our low, sad, and embarrassing moments. Why is that? Because we think that it’s a sign of weakness to express our low moments. But in reality, it’s a sign of ultimate strength to recognize your overwhelming emotions and trying…

Antematter

The dream versions of things in your life, which appear totally foreign but are still somehow yours—your anteschool, your antefriends, your antehome—all part of a parallel world whose gravitational pull raises your life’s emotional stakes, increasing the chances you’ll end up betting everything you have. Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in The Dictionary of…

Seasons

Our planet Earth has blessed us with different seasons that we live through each year- autumn, fall, spring, summer, winter…all of which greatly impact our lifestyles. Our behavior and physical activities get affected too. We all go through different experiences in different seasons, so we have our favorite ones too. Seasons change with time, bringing…

Degrassé

Entranced and unsettled by the vastness of the universe, experienced in a jolt of recognition that the night sky is not just a wallpaper but a deeply foreign ocean whose currents are steadily carrying off all other castaways, who share our predicament but are already well out of earshot—worlds and stars who would’ve been lost…

Pâro

The feeling that no matter what you do is always somehow wrong—that any attempt to make your way comfortably through the world will only end up crossing some invisible taboo—as if there’s some obvious way forward that everybody else can see but you, each of them leaning back in their chair and calling out helpfully,…

Depression is Real

Yes, depression is real. Being sad is not the same as being in depression. Sadness is natural and unique to each individual. Both sadness and depression may overlap, but they differ in many ways. Depression is more than just sadness. It is a common, but serious mood disorder. A lack of interest, sleeplessness or excessive…

Énouement

The bitter sweetness of having arrived here in the future, where you can finally get the answers to how things turn out in the real world—who your baby sister would become, what your friends would end up doing, where your choices would lead you, exactly when you’d lose the people you took for granted—which is…

Feelings and Nature

Nature is one of the principal characteristics we look in people to know them better. We build suitable relationships once we are aware of their true nature. On the other hand, feelings are emotions that make people interact with others. People are examined by their feelings and nature in this world. They have different ways…
