  • Topic of this Week: "EMOTIONAL DEPENDENCE (August 25, 2019)"

    People often confuse independence  with the ability to feed themselves only. In actual reality,  independence doesn’t necessarily mean being emotionally independent.
    So what is emotional dependence? To put it simply, emotional dependence  just as dangerous as drug addiction; hard as you may try, you fail to  give up a partner who mistreat you or your emotional state depends a lot  on how others treat you.
    I used to hear of a female professor,  who failed to abandon her husband although he beat her often. Later, I  learned that in the past, her father left his wife and his children, for  which she partly blamed herself. The break-up with the first husband  confirmed her feeling that she was not worth being loved. I am convinced  that her situation where the emotional independence has been long lost,  is obvious due to her troubled past experience.
    We can see many  other cases of emotional dependence in our real life. Some people never  cease to moan about being uncared for or spend hours longing for  messages from boyfriends or girlfriends without focusing on their study  or work. Also, some people easily lose temper at their colleagues’  feedback however constructive the comments are. When our emotional  states are vulnerable to any external forces, our life will be flung  into the world of turbulence where peace and happiness are never to be  found.

    Coffee

    (07:11:30 AM 16/04/2014)

     Are you coffee drinker?

    How do you take your coffee? Do you take it black, or do you like to add milk or sugarto it? Do you prefer skim milk (milk with no fat), whole milkcream, or half-and-half (half milk, half cream)?

    Drip coffee is popular in the U.S. You brew drip coffee in a coffee machine that uses paper filters (or sometimes wire mesh filters). In other countries, espresso (a stronger drink made with a special machine) is more popular.

    coffee afficionado is someone who's really into finding the best coffee possible. If you're an afficionado, you might do things like buying whole beans and  grinding the beans yourself. You might only buy fair trade beans, which means that the farmers who grew them were treated fairly. You'll also want to pay attention to when the beans wereroasted and how light or dark the roast is.

    When you drink coffee every day, you develop a caffeine habit. You drink it to get your caffeine fix. A lot of people say that they can't function until they've had their morning coffee. If you want the tast of coffee, but don't want to get wired up (the feeling that you get from drinking a lot of caffeine), you can drink decaf instead of regular caffeinatedcoffee.

    For a lot of people, going out to a coffee shop is part of the fun of drinking coffee. Thebarista (a coffee-making specialist) can make you an iced coffee or espresso-based drinks like a cappuccino, which uses foamed milk, or a latté, which uses regular heatedmilk.
