How Having A YouTube Channel Can Increase Confidence (Guest Post)

A lack of confidence is something we all struggle with, especially having confidence when public speaking. Somehow talking in front of fellow humans is terrifying for us. I struggled with this problem, I still do, but it has gotten better over the past year, mainly because I started my own YouTube Channel.

If you start a YouTube channel it will help your confidence for sure. You’ll get nervous and awkward in front of the camera at first but it will begin to feel natural. You will get comfortable talking to an imaginary audience and the camera will stop intimidating you.

I think this is an awesome way of boosting confidence. You learn to public speak and there is something about standing in front of a camera and talking to it. It’s scary and makes you nervous but if you do it enough, it will stop freaking you out and so will talking to other humans.

Plus you will not be afraid of being filmed. A lot of my friends are terrified of cameras and they get stressed out when filmed but honestly, it barely bothers me anymore. I’ve made a fool of myself on YouTube, nothing fazes me anymore.

Another thing is; it helped me overcome my shyness. I am still a pretty reserved person with strangers but I used to be a literal clamshell, an awkward turtle. I’m still an awkward turtle but a friendlier one.

If it stresses you out that other people are watching your videos, you can start by making them Private and as you improve be brave and click that button to make them Public!

Don’t even think about telling me that you don’t have a good camera. I use my mother’s and it isn’t the best either and I still make videos. You can even film yourself with your phone. As long as you have some editing software (you can find tons of cheap editing software, like Wondershare Filmora) you can make a decent video.

Now I know a YouTube channel is not for everyone, and I know that not everybody has time but if you struggle with confidence and have some free time I encourage you try this method out. It may take a couple months but having a YouTube Channel really helped me increase my confidence.

Pen Over People (Guest Post)

She prefers the pen in her hand,

over the company of the people.

The pen never yells or screams,

Instead it leads to wonderful worlds.

It unleashes her creativity.

It is her weapon and they better beware.

You can’t love for both (Guest Post)

Love is blind, as old proverb said. As much this sounds banal, it has sense. How many time you regret because this fatal hunk did not noticed you? How many times you were envious to lucky girl who got him? Rivalry is old as human species ,but it always has conflict with right on choice. Really, you might be Victoria secret model, winner of Nobel price or Paris Hilton, but if you are not in his heart, you just lose your time and act like masochist who is chasing impossible target. If you talk with your friends in coffee table about this topic, you will just find out simple truth : it takes two for love relation, and you can’t love for both if he has lack of feelings for you.

It is hard to understand this from your side, because heart speaks own truth, and maybe you got some signs that he indeed want you, but be careful, are those signs real or fake? Woman in love can’t see, for which area is she indeed chosen, for sex or relation? Men might fool women with lies as „you are perfect for me, rare diamond, not as other women“, but after hot night this diamond will stay in warehouse, because he only pleased to his wishes. Some women gain hope that this is only first stage, so they will even accept offer for sex but as intro in love story which will never happen.

Lydia fall in love in her neighbor Ted but he was narcissist. He never noticed her even she was pretty, smart and educated. She lost this game even Ted was dating with any kind of women, he was not so picky, he just wanted to increase number of women in his bed. Lydia was quiet because she knew inside of her that even if he asked her for a date, it will not last long. Ted got married with daughter of local entrepreneur.

Cynthia has choice between two guys, her high school sweetheart Ken, and guy from college, Henry. She chose Henry cause he gave her choice, he was not chasing her, even Ken was favorite candidate in her family. Henry gave her bigger freedom.

Rivalry is background for horrible stories, even crimes, because not everyone is able to understand that we can’t force love, and if you got NO answer all you can do is rise from the dust and ask for someone new. You can’t buy right of choice.

The worst you can do is beg or threat to someone who rejected you. You will be marked as desperate lady, maniac or stalker if you don’t give up.  Don’t play games, don’t gossip or try to set up to someone just to bring back your ex boyfriend. This is not solution, because it is not hard to reveal lies, and you will be bad guy in the end of his soap opera.

See some woman’s tricks to catch guy who is not into them:

Follow guy in social networks, create fake profiles just to talk with him.

Association with his friends, just to be in his circle, to dig useful info about him.

Try to get closer with his mom.

If you are business lady, a boss, you might copy Demi Moore in „Disclosure. „

Changing your outfit, in hope that he will notice your long legs or big boobs if you wear transparent shirt. Maybe you will be in his bed, but not in his heart on this way.

Make gossip about your competition. This is double game, cause your fatal potential boyfriend might reveal traps, and also your friend might leave you, cause you are person without ethics.

If you are blindly focused on guy who doesn’t give you single chance, you are in blind alley. This is elimination of every other man in your area, you can’t see them cause your heart is obstacle on this way. You are driver on road to hell, but if you move on right way, you might see road to paradise. Use your right on free choice, without fear that you will stay alone, because this fatal man doesn’t want you. In relation where just one side is in love, love doesn’t exist indeed. So here is no regrets for you, it doesn’t happen really, just in your fantasies.

Top 5 Movies That Deal With Dementia (Guest Post)

Movies that deal with real suffering of ordinary individuals are usually those that stick in our minds for years to come. Many older actors who have portrayed people affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia have gone on to win Academy Awards or nominations, and will forever be remembered in the history of cinema. The following is a list of some of the best films on memory loss and how it affects everyone involved.

5.   The Savages (2007)

Starring Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Savages is a touching story about two siblings who reunite for the sake of their father who’s suffering from dementia. This tragic comedy yielded some wonderful performances and nominations, including Laura Linney’s Oscar nomination for Best Actress, and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). Tamara Jenkins was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

  1. Aurora Borealis (2006)

An indie movie released without much anticipation, Aurora Borealis is a story about a grandfather, (Donald Sutherland), who suffers from dementia and needs more care than his wife (Louise Fletcher) can provide. They hire a home health aide (Juliette Lewis) to assist, and enlist the help of their grandson (Joshua Jackson) to provide proper care to Sutherland’s character who believes he can see the Northern Lights through his window. Although Aurora Borealis has never received much praise from critics or moviegoers, it is one of those films where Donald Sutherland steals the show for the millionth time.

  1. Age Old Friends (1989)

John Cooper, played by Hume Cronyn, wonderfully portrays an elderly man who chooses to live in a retirement home to preserve his independence and not be a burden on his daughter, played by his real-life daughter, Tandy Cronyn. He becomes friends with Michael (Vincent Gardenia), who is diagnosed with dementia, and is faced with a tough decision when his daughter wants him to come live with her. Should he leave a rigid retirement home and go live with his daughter or should he stay to help out a friend in need?

  1. Iris: A Memoir of Iris Murdoch (2001)

Iris: A Memoir of Iris Murdoch is based on a book by John Bayley and a true story of English author Iris Murdoch’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease. This film will forever be remembered by its outstanding cast and its breath-taking performances. Jim Broadbent, who plays Bayley in his later years, won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor. Judi Dench and Kate Winslet both landed Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for their portrayals of Murdoch in her older and younger years.

  1. The Notebook (2004)

The Notebook is certainly the most famous of all the movies on this list, and for a good reason. Based on Nicholas Sparks’ bestselling novel of the same title, The Notebook might not have received as much praise from the critics as it did from the audiences around the world, but it will forever be adored as one of the most romantic movies of its generation that break down both young and senior dating and everlasting love that knows no boundaries. Featuring Gena Rowlands and James Garner, The Notebook tells a story of a loving elderly husband of Allie who is trying to rekindle her memories destroyed by Alzheimer’s disease. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play the couple when they were younger and their chemistry is out of this world.

Signs He’s Falling In Love (Guest Post)

Is your man distant and emotionally unavailable? Well, join the club! Joking aside, the local dating scene is packed with indifferent and frigid guys who simply don’t know how to express emotions. You probably experienced something like this with your own partner in crime, but there’s no need to panic. You have to remain calm and keep your eyes peeled for signs of love that will put your mind at ease. Below you can see the subtle hints that say – I’m in love with you, woman!

He Introduces You To His Closest Friends

A man’s “entourage” is like the extension of his family. Every guy has those couple of buddies that are like brothers to him. If your guy decides to introduce you to his best friends, well, you can stop worrying because he’s madly in love with you. Trust us, this is one of the biggest indicators of pure love and trust. Also, if his friends happen to like you and vice versa, you can start looking for a wedding dress.

Good Or Bad News – He Calls You First

Every single man out there has that special person with whom they share both good and bad news. However, this person doesn’t always have to be their girlfriend. If your partner feels comfortable enough to share the good and bad news with you, before he tells anyone else, you can be sure he loves you. This type of behaviour is a sure sign that he cares about you and that he trusts you more than anyone else.

He Spends Most Of His Free Time With You

Relationships can sometimes be rather demanding. Therefore, most guys out there are spending their free time with their friends or they simply choose to enjoy some much-needed “alone” time. You can’t blame your boyfriend for having the need to isolate himself every once in a while, but if he chooses to spend his precious free time with you, he is completely and utterly in love with you.

He Includes You In His Plans For The Future

Most men are deathly afraid of talking about the future with their significant others. They know that if they start planning ahead, it means things are getting pretty serious. However, if your man is ready to talk about your future together, you can be sure he’s in for a long haul.

He Introduces You With His Family

Men are usually pretty close with their moms and dads, and they don’t bring a lot of girls home to meet the parents. If he decides to introduce you to his beloved family, you have nothing to worry about, he’s mad about you. This is, without a doubt, one of the biggest signs your man is in deeply in love with you. It means he is sure about your relationship and that he wants to keep you in his life for a long time.
