Stalkers thrive in 2021

A stereotypical stalker is a disheveled man who tries to break into a home of a K-pop star. While global icons are vulnerable to stalking, anyone can be a stalking victim. What’s even more disturbing is that many stalkers are hard to spot, so be careful who you associate with. When you smile at a stalker, he sees it as an invitation to enter your life. Bombarding you with personal questions is an obvious warning sign. Stalkers don’t respect personal boundaries. They constantly vacillate between love and hate. Then again, when the stranger is a foreigner, it might be a…

Medium is a great site. Many excellent writers share their ideas with the world. But it can be an overwhelming virtual meeting place for new writers. Let’s take a look at what might happen to some new writers on Medium. . .on an emotional level. As counter-intuitive as it is, a new writer can be overwhelmed by the sheer number of ideas and concepts on Medium; thousands of top quality articles, obviously written by brilliant minds, offering advice and making suggestions.

While it’s great there are so many ideas on Medium, it’s also possible…

2021 is shaping up to be a roller-coaster ride. I know what you’re probably thinking: ‘’Well, thank you, Captain Obvious.’’ Let’s get down to business, then!

Don’t take things personally

Someone doesn’t like you? Well, that’s too bad. Never take caustic and passive-aggressive comments personally. They’re usually a projection of another person’s insecurity issues. Actually, it’s a covert compliment, as I call it because — deep down — the toxic person knows you’re so good at what you do that they’re likely never going to be on the same level as you. And it…

You know how it goes. You have a terrible boss who’s basically making you jump through hoops. And you need to jump through as many hoops as you’re told — otherwise, you won’t get paid and you’ll starve. Now, I’m sure you know some people at work who’d love to have a magic wand to make others literally jump through hoops. Kind of like this. I can picture you, dear reader, nodding vigorously, maybe even smiling.

I shiver at the thought of what many managers and employees would do if they had magical powers.

All that pent-up anger . …

Writing lets you find your voice

Humans have an innate need to be heard. To be seen. Developing your own writing style will make you visible to others. It takes time and effort to write an insightful article.

Anyone can write a caustic, manipulative, comment. People who can’t have a civilized conversation often project their own flaws and insecurities onto you.

Their time would be better spent honing their writing skills.

Writing calms your mind

As a highly intelligent individual, you’re prone to analyzing the world around you. Your ravenous brain wants to absorb as much information as…

If you got stuck in hell

Dancing the cha-cha-cha forever

Bringing money luck to others

Wouldn’t that suck?

Oh yes, it would.

Do you think it’s better to self-publish a novel with no prior publishing experience (no costs involved) or ask a publishing/editing/promotion expert for help which will cost $$, of course?

You know what they say — this isn’t an airport, no need to announce your departure.

Still, I’d like to thank the wonderful Illumination editors and my esteemed followers.

Medium isn’t a place for me, after all.

I wish you all the best!
