MY HUSBAND IS “AN ACTIVIST!” – He’ll stand for NONE OF THAT! πŸ˜‚

“HOME SWEET HOME IS WORTH THE FOCUS!” a poem a.k.a.: “Balancing Activism With The Needs Of Your Family!” Friday: December 14, 2018

MY HUSBAND IS “AN ACTIVIST!” – He’ll stand for NONE OF THAT!
He WILL-protect: CHILDREN, (pause) THE ENVIRONMENT, (pause)
And – even-that-bloody-CAT,
Who stays up, stuck-up – in the tree – and meows-and-meows-so-much!
HUB’ll-climb the tree and fall right down – ra-ther-than-get-in-touch,
With-THE-ANIMAL-PATROLing-GUYS! whose job it is to fetch,
Kitty from The Bloody Tree! – or me! with-hair- caught-in-this-hedge!!
I yelled and yelled for days on end; I-did – for-my- lovely-Hon!
But hubbie, he-was-locked-(up)-in-jail! ‘Cause-he’s-a-PROTESTING-SON,*
And WHEN THEY FINALLY RELEASED-HIM – he-had-him – a-beard and the-cat,
He got a ride back home(?) he-did – and THEN – he “smelled a rat!?”
Well-now (actually) the-“rat-smell”-was-me, still stuck there, with my hair,
Caught!-It-had-been-for-days-so-tangled – and-I’d-lost-my-will-to-care!
So-I-died-in-the-hedge, with-no-bread, (you see)! No-bread – to dip-in-the-river!
I died! without – food-and/or-water and such – Perhaps I-just burst my liver(?)
But WHAT THE HECK, my hubbie’s happy(?) and-he’s-still-a-“protesting-joe,”
Without a wife – or family – I wonder how-far he’ll go!

The MORAL of the story-Let-activism -always-begin-at-HOME – – – lest your wife and family – begin to cry and foam – – – “at the mouth,” with hunger, nothing left to eat! – – – Providing-for-your-loved-ones! (it-is-a-good-plan) A-happy-home-ya (just) can’t beat!
* – son-of-a- (long pause) gun!**
** – because he HAD – a right to bear arms (I mean) bare arms – my arms – and my bare breasts – and I had other quality features! (All but forgotten, as Bubba launched a campaign to Save The Whales, but NOT my wails – and to pick-up strays cats and dogs – which I got to feed and clean up after – AND – He fell in love with this activist chick named Delores, who believed in The Second Coming of The Pure Race – and, by golly, Bubba (bless his heart) raced to HER side, protecting and providing for her every earthly need!) but ME? Well, I was left alone, with the dogs and cats (who all died anyway, after I got stuck in the hedge that time and died) – Anyway, life is short (sometimes) and not necessarily sweet! AND – everybody needs to be saved – especially the environment – I bloody well went GREEN (with envy!) because I was envious of all the time he was spending with Delores and The Trees! and, yes, our blessed child (in my womb) died along with me (IN THE HEDGE) – ACTUALLY! The child was saved! I died! Then they cut out little Bicky from my tummy! Bicky became a prosecutor, prosecuting overzealous protesters, who, although they DO have a right to free speech and reasonable protest! are NOT allowed to shoot pipe-line layers, circus owners (with dancing bears) and themselves! Sigh! Anyway, here I am – in a PERFECT ENIRONMENT, called Heaven – or Hell, awaiting early release – so I go “back there” and eat bark – with Bubba, Delores – and other woodland creatures! Well, you know!! Sigh! ns of the times! <3

Differences Between Persons of Low and High Emotional Intelligence

For example, we can take public presentation. We will state how people with low emotional intelligence act a couple of days before, during and after the presentation. Afterwards, we will compare their behavior with the behavior of people with high emotional intelligence.People with low emotional intelligence: When the day of the presentation is approaching, a person becomes more nervous, unable to eat or sleep and generally feels bad. Due to the high anxiety, his/her preparation is bad. Whenever a person imagines the situation of presenting in front of a larger number of people, his/her mind creates a terrible picture. On the day of presentation, a person feels bad until the beginning of the presentation. The first few minutes, he/she feels terrible. His/her hands are sweating, a voice is shivering, and he/she is very nervous. After some time, the nervousness ceases and a person is pleasantly surprised. Due to a previous nervousness, a person’s memory is not so good, so he/she often must take a look in his/her notes. A presentation is not humorous because a person is too tense to see the funny side. At the end of the presentation, he/she forgets to thank his team.People with high emotional intelligence: A person feels a slight nervousness but tries to confront it by preparing the material for the presentation. When his/her mind becomes full of bad thoughts, a person starts to motivate himself/herself with positive thoughts. Because of the relaxed state, a person is able to distinguish what is important from the unnecessary details and therefore has a better presentation than the person with low emotional intelligence. On the day of the presentation, a person is nervous but assures himself/herself that the low level of nervousness is actually good. The first few minutes he/she is nervous, but then relaxes. The audience is laughing to person’s humorous statements which makes him/her more relaxed. Due to the relaxation, a person has no problem with memory and rarely looks at his/her notes and is natural and spontaneous.

Models of Emotional Intelligence

In the area of psychology, many different scientists explained emotional intelligence in a variety of ways. Today, the most commonly used are the model of Mayer and Salovey and the model of Bar-On. The model of Salovey and Mayer includes assessment and expression of emotions, perception, emotional facilitation of opinion, understanding and analysis of emotions and reflective regulation of emotions. Evaluation and expression of emotions, as well as perception, are actually the ability to recognize emotion in physical condition, works of art, linguistic expression and behaviour. By learning to recognize his/her own and others’ emotions, a person is able to distinguish the real emotion from the false one. The emotional facilitation of opinion refers to the knowledge of the impact of emotion on memory and thinking. A person who has developed this ability is able to recognise the emotions and to use them in judgment. In this case, emotions facilitate an approach to a specific problem, as well as the development of creativity. The understanding and analysis of emotions enable the use and development of emotional knowledge. The person who has this ability can clearly name the emotions and recognise the relationships between the words (e.g., to like and to love) and consequently he/she understands the consequences of these emotions. This component can strengthen, and the result is the understanding of more complex emotions, as well as the ways emotions, switch from one to another. In short, this component can be described as the ability of recognition of certain laws related to emotions. The model Bar-On is designed by Israeli scientist Reuven Bar-On. His model consists of 15 components grouped into five main groups: intrapersonal components, components, interpersonal components, adaptability components, stress management components, and general mood components. The intrapersonal component includes an emotional self-consciousness whose purpose is to understand yourself and others. The interpersonal component includes empathy, i.e. the ability to notice how people feel in our environment. Stress management component refers to stress tolerance. People who are tolerant of stress know how to act under pressure, and they control a specific situation more easily.

What is emotional intelligence?

Emotional intelligence allows a person to recognise and embrace his/her own and other people’s emotions, as well as to recognise their cause. Emotionally intelligent people develop their creative side more quickly and have the ability to deal with a particular problem in several ways. Emotional intelligence also enables easier social integration. It consists of five components, and those are knowledge of own inner feelings, control over the intensity of emotions, self-motivation, recognition of other people’s emotions and establishment and maintenance of relationships with other people. When it comes to the knowledge of own inner feelings, the key is to recognise them at the moment they occur. People who are sure about their feelings manage their life better and make more deliberate decisions (choosing a marriage partner, University, workplace, etc.). People who have the ability to control the intensity of emotions are able to calm themselves down and easily free themselves from depression, anxiety or irritability. Self-motivation is an essential quality because no matter how talented or capable we are, we will not achieve anything without persistent and long-term labour. Emotionally intelligent people are able to motivate themselves, so they achieve better results. They control their impulses, think positively, and they are optimistic. Emotionally intelligent people have the ability to recognise other people’s emotions, they can sympathise with them and help them. Also, they can easily identify the signals that indicate what other people want or need. The establishment and maintenance of relationships with other people are also an essential characteristic of an emotionally intelligent person. It depends on the recognition of other people’s emotions and the appropriate response to them. The leading scientists in the field of emotional intelligence were Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer.

Innate Nonverbal Gestures

Chin Touching. The person who touches his/her chin during a conversation feels anxiety and discomfort. Touching the chin falls into the soothing innate nonverbal gestures when we’re trying to calm down or alleviate the feelings of anxiety and tension. Women, instead of touching the chin, often play with the collar in order to achieve the same calming effect. Nose Touching, the person who touches his/her nose is most often hiding something from their interlocutors. It is important to understand the context in which this action takes place because it may be that this is just about the nose leaking, or some other biological intrusion. If this action happens frequently, it may indicate interlocutor’s unclean conscience. Ear Touching, the ear falls into soothing actions. Soothing body movements are actions that have the effect of calming the pulse when you overcome the feeling of restlessness and anxiety. If a person during a conversation starts to touch his ear, he/she is trying to say that he/she has already heard everything that was said, or that he/she disagrees.

Face Expressions as Nonverbal Signs

Head Tilted to one side is a reflection of the positive emotions. It is very hard to take such body position and not to feel extremely great comfort and relaxation. This body position is mostly taken up during courtship in order to show affection to the opposite side. In the Smiling Clenched Lips during the conversation, a person who clenches the lips, but still retains a smile on his/her face, often hides the truth. If a woman finds herself in the company of a man that she doesn’t like, she is going to have this kind of facial expression. Look to the side look to the side characterises a lack of trust of what interlocutor says to us. This position often suggests the doubt because of the interlocutor’s expressed thoughts. Look to the side may take only a few seconds, but may also last throughout the whole conversation.

Nonverbal Signals of Fists and Fingers

Head Leaning on Hands – If a person props his/her hands on the table and puts his head on them, it means that he is ready to seduce the person with whom he is communicating. The person tries to look seductive and mystical. A man should give a woman a compliment if he likes her. This kind of behavior is the usual way of catching attention, so the interlocutor should be careful. Crossed Arms behind the Back when a person crosses hands behind the back, he/she takes the position of leadership. Many doctors, lawyers and people from higher ranks tend taking up such attitude that indicates a person’s dominance. Studies have shown that mothers with the authoritarian style of upbringing often occupy such a position of the body which has a negative impact on the development of the child who longs for the touch. Rubbing hands is a gesture that indicates that a person feels anxious in a certain situation. If the intensity of rubbing hands increases, that means that a person in that situation becomes more uncomfortable and that his/her confidence is on the decline.

The position of Hands as a Part of Nonverbal Signals

Torso Protection Body position in which a person crosses his/her hands and put a thumb toward the air indicates that a person has a strong character that he/she is willing to listen to another person and take another person’s views into account. This attitude indicates that the person is calm and tranquil. Crossed Arms in the case of two people talking and one person feels uncomfortable, it is considered socially unacceptable that one person just gets away from the assailant. In order to achieve the effect of protection, people tend to cross their arms or button up their coat because they feel uncomfortable in the company of such people. Gesture that Indicates Stress if a woman lies her hand on the chest, that has a calming effect and according to the classification, this gesture belongs to the soothing nonverbal gestures. This movement should placate the pulse of the heart and create a sense of well being. In stressful situations, people resort to this tranquil form of behavior.
