Although I am affectionate , considerate, helpful& I easily make friendships, but I have a problem to contact with my father , I don’t have good relationship with him , we don’t agree with each other , because we had different opinions , he had never listened to me & that is hard for me, because he is my father right ? .& when I say my opining , he become angry , sometimes yelling ,& antagonize me . I don’t agree with his thoughts, but I try not to argue.
My mom always says to me that your dad cares about you, & I know that, but he don’t express his feelings.
He had never remembered my birthday, or asked me if I need anything, I used to keep my feelings from him,but I share it with my mother. She is my best friend.
She listens to me & share me her thoughts &plans.
We talk about every thing, when we go to somewhere, the people think we are sisters, she always elevate my incorporeal, & helps me to achieve my dreams .
My relationship with my both grandfathers are very good , they support me, they like my blog ,&encourage me.
My relation ship with my grandmother (in Baghdad) is very good &I love her very very much.
Although there is very big difference between me & my other grandmother (she live with us), but we have good relationship.
My sister (she is seven years) & I argue a lot, she don’t obey me in the contrary she do the opposite, & that make me sooooooooo angry.
My brother now is one year old, I love him very much, he stay with me when my mother is at work, he is so cute& funny.
Make good family relationships …

Hey, I just want to wish you good luck. I don't know how life is like in Mosul, but whatever it is, just keep fighting on with life.

Sunshine, I wanted to tell you that I love your wonderful attitude. Rest assured that your father does love you. I had no daughters but 2 sons. I don't think I ever told them that I loved them but I'm sure they knew that I did. Do you ever hear from your aunt, who I only know as Rose? She and her husband hasn't posted in a long time. I hope they and their daughter are doing well. Tell your grandmother we are praying for her safety. Stay safe and keep your fantastic attitude.

easy now Sunshine, its nothing to worry about.
I don't remember my father telling me he loves me and things like that, but I know (now) that he does.

its normal at your age, with all the hardships you encounter everyday, to feel neglected and alone.. hell, I'm almost 24 and still I feel like that at times!

easy now, رضا الله من رضا الوالدين, right?

cheer up Sunshine, you'll see the light yet!

Sunshine, I'm sure your father does love you. Some people just have a hard time saying it or can't say it all. Maybe he will read your blog and see that you want a better relationship with him

Keep well.

Sunshine, just from reading your blog, I get the feeling that you are "exactly" what you say you are. Very friendly, affectionate, and a very nice Iraqi girl.

You are probably making too much of your differences with your dad. There is that everlasting love you will enjoy and question throughout your life with your family members. They are your family, after all. They know you, and you know them... so well.

From reading what you write, I think you are a very sensitive, loving, young wonderful female.

That's important.

Keep your hopes up! (and keep smiling!)

When I was a teenager my father and I used to argue alot. I think that fathers find it hard when their "little girls" start to grow up and have opinions that aren't the same as theirs. I am an adult now and my father and I get along much better. It is easier I think now that I am an adult and he can accept that we differ in some ways but in others we are very much alike. Hang in there Sunshine, sometimes men in our families just think a little differently than we girls, but rest assured, they do love!

I am 61 years old.

When my father died, I had to clean out his houe and take care of all his possessions.

In one drawer I found a box containing greeting cards. As I examined them I realized that he had saved every card I had ever given him, birthday cards, fathers day cards, etc, etc.

I have never had children of my own but when I married my wife had a daughter from a previous marriage. I still have all the cards she ever gave me.

I never understood how much my father treasured these few small tokens of affection I offered him. I am sure my stepdaughter does not understand how much I treasure her. I know she alays preferred her mother's company and felt I was too strict and bossy.

Fathers love their children. It is harder for them to make this apparent than for mothers, I think, but it is true. Never doubt it.

A typical dictionary definition of hypnosis states that it is: a state that resembles sleep but that is induced by suggestion. However, anyone who has tried hypnosis (and any self respecting hypnotist) will tell you that this is a very simplistic view of the subject!
A much better description comes from the Free Online Dictionary which states that hypnosis is: an artificially induced state of consciousness, characterised by heightened suggestibility and receptivity to direction. So what does this mean and how can it be used to your advantage?
Well, the subject of hypnosis has been discussed and pondered since the late 1700s. Many explanations and theories have come and gone though science, however, has yet to supply a valid and well-established definition of how it actually happens. It's fairly unlikely that the scientific community will arrive at a definitive explanation for hypnosis in the near future either, as the untapped resources of our 'mostly' uncharted mind still remain something of a mystery.
However, the general characteristics of hypnosis are well documented. It is a trance state characterized by extreme suggestibility, deep relaxation and heightened imaginative functioning. It's not really like sleep at all, because the subject is alert the whole time. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling you get when you watch a movie or read a captivating book. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the outside world. Your focus is concentrated intensely on the mental processes you are experiencing - if movies didn't provide such disassociation with everyday life and put a person in a very receptive state then they would not be as popular (nor would TV advertising be as effective!). Have you ever stated that a film wasn't great because you just couldn't 'get into it'???
This works very simply; while daydream or watching a movie, an imaginary world becomes almost real to you because it fully engages your emotional responses. Such mental pursuits will on most occasions cause real emotional responses such as fear, sadness or happiness (have you ever cried at a sad movie, felt excited by a future event not yet taken place or shivered at the thought of your worst fear?).
It is widely accepted that these states are all forms of self-hypnosis. If you take this view you can easily see that you go into and out of mild hypnotic states on a daily basis - when driving home from work, washing the dishes, or even listening to a boring conversation. Although these situations produce a mental state that is very receptive to suggestion the most powerful time for self-change occurs in the trance state brought on by intentional relaxation and focusing exercises. This deep hypnosis is often compared to the relaxed mental state between wakefulness and sleep.
In this mental state, people feel uninhibited and relaxed and they release all worries and doubts that normally occupy their mind. A similar experience occurs while you are daydreaming or watching the TV. You become so involved in the onscreen antics that worries and everyday cares fade away, until all you're focused on is the TV. In this state, you are also highly suggestible. That is why when a hypnotist tells you do something under trance; you'll probably embrace the idea completely. However, your sense of safety and morality remain entrenched throughout the experience and should either of these be threatened you immediately wake!
A hypnotist can not get you to do anything you don't want to do.
So while in such a state, when we are highly suggestible and open to new beliefs, a skillful hypnotist, whether in person or via a recording, can alter life-long behaviours and even give us new ones! lucid dream
