What are your thoughts on social magic?
I think that social magic is a useful tool for all of us.
It is extremely simple and does not require the use of magicians such as Harry Houdini or David Copperfield.
Are you ready for an Adrenaline rush? Awesome!
Let’s get this party started by developing some magical concepts.
I got a phone call from a wonderful friend not long ago. “I’m tired of people, Nataly; I’m stressed out; they’re so hypocritical and arrogant”, she complained.
I’m assuming she felt secure discussing such a sensitive topic with me, which I take as a compliment. (I’m blushing right now.)
“I recommend that you address the cause of your stress,” I said.
“How am I to deal with such people, what am I supposed to say exactly”? Her surprise was clear in her voice.
“Simply express your discontent to the person causing you stress”.
“That’s impolite,” she pointed out.
“What about the way they treat you? That’s not very nice, is it?” I inquired.
“Oh well, it’s impolite of them to treat me that way, but I don’t know;” She avoided answering my question, she paused then added, “I am at a bit of a loss; hmm… I am not courageous.”
“All you need is a strong mind,” I told her.
“You must be kidding now, right?” she said.
“No, I’m not kidding,” I insisted. “Why do you think I’d be kidding about anything like this?”
“Because I couldn’t imagine anybody having the audacity to say such a thing, I assumed you were kidding”. She said.
“I do,” I admitted.
“Wow, are you serious? You are very strong”.
“It’s not a fight to the death; you don’t need strength, only self-confidence and a calm demeanor”.
“Thank you, darling, but that’s too complex for me; anyway, I’ll think about it,” she replied as she ended the call.
It’s terrible to see how delicate women like her are emotionally imprisoned by society’s mythological expectations and demands, despite the fact that they might use communication skills to live a less stressful lifestyle.
Life already has a lot of unexpected twists and turns.
Do you need to be influenced by slogans like “You Should” and “You Must” in addition to the complexity of the world?
Do you have to let people talk to you or treat you as they want, insult you or use you impulsively, excusing their rudeness behind the mask of social taboos, while your own sorrow and sadness are irrelevant to them?
How many of you believe that having a healthy emotional state requires waging war on society or always clashing with everyone? None of this is necessary. All you need is the mastery of magical social terminology.
I promise you will be able to avoid confrontations, effectively deal with obnoxious people, and overcome numerous obstacles and challenges.
While we have no influence over how others behave, we do have total control over how we respond to their behaviors.
Ladies let’s get this ball rolling.
“This conversation is making me uncomfortable,” you tell your mother-in-law.
“I’ve decided to avoid discussing this topic with anybody, including you,” you explain to a curious neighbor.
“I prefer not to reply to your comment,” you tell a colleague who is jealous.
“You know I love you,” you tell an invading friend; “Yet, I really need some alone time right now.”
“You’re fantastic; I’m the one with a horrible personality,” you tell a partner or a guy that you are no longer interested in dating them, it works like a charm. (I’m giggling right now).
“No, I have no desire to assist or attend “you tell a pompous family member.
Begin your requests with the strong cosmic word “PLEASE,” then a polite permission request, such as
Is it all right if I express what I’m thinking?
“Is it possible for me to share my emotions?”
“Do you think it’s okay if I speak my thoughts on this subject?”
Be cautious! Ignore their facial expressions, no matter how shocked they are, and simply focus on your magical terminology; end your sentence with a simple positive comment such as “I am so glad at how considerate you are towards my feelings” or “I am so grateful that you understood how I felt”.
No one is born into this world only to live a life for the sake of others.
Most people, I think, will go above and beyond what is required of them, even if it means complaining, lying, or suffering mental pain for themselves in order to impress others. What would you think of their everyday lives? Do they seem to be happy?
Here you have it, your answer.
Ladies, I eagerly await your thoughts and comments.
Never miss the fact that the choices you make in life are entirely within your control.
Please ladies, let us place a high value on our emotional well-being first, since each one of us is significant, valuable, and adorable in our own way.
“Would you please allow me to make a statement? This blog is just for women, and I appreciate your understanding and respect, guys.”
YOU ARE ALL AMAZING, LADIES!
I LOVE YOU ALL
