People With Tattoos Are Not Necessarily Bad People

People With Tattoos Are Not Necessarily Bad People

Many think that those people that have tattoos around the skin of their bodies are extremely “bad” or “awful.” However, this is not true at all. Instead, people with tattoos can be some of the nicest people out there. Many people consider someone with a tattoo to be “taboo” but the truth is that they are normal people just like anybody else.

Here is why these individuals are truly great. You can learn a lot from them.

1. They are strong from the heart.

These people have gone through a lot in life. They have passed ordeal after ordeal. Tattoos are a gateway or an expression of the pain they have gone through and embalmed in themselves. Next time, don’t think just because someone has a tattoo, that they are bad. Think that they may have gone through some painful time in their life that they want to keep close to them and never forget about.

I know someone very close who has a tattoo on her wrist after losing her brother. She is the strongest female I know. Know that these people are genuinely nice and strong and resilient from the heart.

2. They embrace themselves and what life throws at them.

Because these people have gone through so much as stated in the previous subheading, they embrace everything that life chooses to throw at them. When they do this, they may feel that they are at loss with life or maybe they can control a bit of things around them, and tattoos are a portal to this thought process. They are not afraid and this leads us to our next topic of interest. Life is not black and white any longer for such individuals; life is about the grey, the in between colors and arrays also. So, these tattooed individuals have learn to embrace not only themselves, but people everywhere around them.

Life truly is about accepting and individuals with tattoos have done exactly that.

    3. They are fearless.

    It is painful to make a tattoo. However, these people have embraced both pain and fear and can take whatever you throw at them. They are not scared of being hurt or getting hurt because they have gone through the ordeals and dealt with them already. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Those with tattoos no longer have fear because it is extremely painful to get a tattoo. Those who agree to get them have an endurance to pain, so you can count on them to no longer be afraid. Even if they are a little bit, they have learned to tame it to a great degree. This is something that can also be learned form those people who have tattoos.

      4. They express themselves through art.

      Instead of keeping all the turmoil and pain inside of them, people with tattoos have learnt to express their emotions through their art. Expression is the best form of art and we must embrace people with tattoos. They are beautiful people and we need to realize and understand that. Expression is a form of stress release. People with tattoos are wonderful at releasing their tension their getting tattoos.

        5. They value life.

        These people significantly value what life is about! Something that holds special places inside of their hearts, they usually engrave on their skins, so they will always remember something to their heart, forever close to themselves. I think that is one of the most beautiful things possible. Wow, these people are truly wonderful. They are genuinely honest and have come to terms with nature and life. Life should be valued and that is something I have learned through them.

        Is Procrastination Bad? The Truth About Procrastination Revealed

        Is Procrastination Bad? The Truth About Procrastination Revealed

        Procrastination is very literally the opposite of productivity. To produce something is to pull it forward, while to procrastinate is to push it forward — to tomorrow, to next week, or ultimately to never.

        Procrastination fills us with shame — we curse ourselves for our laziness, our inability to focus on the task at hand, our tendency to be easily led into easier and more immediate gratifications. And with good reason: for the most part, time spent procrastinating is time spent not doing things that are, in some way or other, important to us.

        There is a positive side to procrastination, but it’s important not to confuse procrastination at its best with everyday garden-variety procrastination.

        Sometimes — sometimes! — procrastination gives us the time we need to sort through a thorny issue or to generate ideas. In those rare instances, we should embrace procrastination — even as we push it away the rest of the time.

        Why we procrastinate after all

        We procrastinate for a number of reasons, some better than others. One reason we procrastinate is that, while we know what we want to do, we need time to let the ideas “ferment” before we are ready to sit down and put them into action.

        Some might call this “creative faffing”; I call it, following copywriter Ray Del Savio’s lead, “concepting”.[1]

        Whatever you choose to call it, it’s the time spent dreaming up what you want to say or do, weighing ideas in your mind, following false leads and tearing off on mental wild goose chases, and generally thinking things through.

        Advertising

        To the outside observer, concepting looks like… well, like nothing much at all. Maybe you’re leaning back in your chair, feet up, staring at the wall or ceiling, or laying in bed apparently dozing, or looking out over the skyline or feeding pigeons in the park or fiddling with the Japanese vinyl toys that stand watch over your desk.

        If ideas are the lifeblood of your work, you have to make time for concepting, and you have to overcome the sensation— often overpowering in our work-obsessed culture — that faffing, however creative, is not work.

        So, is procrastination bad?

        Yes it is.

        Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you’re “concepting” when in fact you’re just not sure what you’re supposed to be doing.

        Spending an hour staring at the wall while thinking up the perfect tagline for a marketing campaign is creative faffing; staring at the wall for an hour because you don’t know how to come up with a tagline, or don’t know the product you’re marketing well enough to come up with one, is just wasting time.

        Lack of definition is perhaps the biggest friend of your procrastination demons. When we’re not sure what to do — whether because we haven’t planned thoroughly enough, we haven’t specified the scope of what we hope to accomplish in the immediate present, or we lack important information, skills, or resources to get the job done.

        It’s easy to get distracted or to trick ourselves into spinning our wheels doing nothing. It takes our mind off the uncomfortable sensation of failing to make progress on something important.

        The answer to this is in planning and scheduling. Rather than giving yourself an unspecified length of time to perform an unspecified task (“Let’s see, I guess I’ll work on that spreadsheet for a while”) give yourself a limited amount of time to work on a clearly defined task (“Now I’ll enter the figures from last months sales report into the spreadsheet for an hour”).

        Giving yourself a deadline, even an artificial one, helps build a sense of urgency and also offers the promise of time to “screw around” later, once more important things are done.

        For larger projects, planning plays a huge role in whether or not you’ll spend too much time procrastinating to reach the end reasonably quickly.

        A good plan not only lists the steps you have to take to reach the end, but takes into account the resources, knowledge and inputs from other people you’re going to need to perform those steps.

        Instead of futzing around doing nothing because you don’t have last month’s sales report, getting the report should be a step in the project.

        Otherwise, you’ll spend time cooling your heels, justifying your lack of action as necessary: you aren’t wasting time because you want to, but because you have to.

        How bad procrastination can be

        Our mind can often trick us into procrastinating, often to the point that we don’t realize we’re procrastinating at all.

        Advertising

        After all, we have lots and lots of things to do; if we’re working on something, aren’t we being productive – even if the one big thing we need to work on doesn’t get done?

        One way this plays out is that we scan our to-do list, skipping over the big challenging projects in favor of the short, easy projects. At the end of the day, we feel very productive: we’ve crossed twelve things off our list!

        That big project we didn’t work on gets put onto the next day’s list, and when the same thing happens, it gets moved forward again. And again.

        Big tasks often present us with the problem above – we aren’t sure what to do exactly, so we look for other ways to occupy ourselves.

        In many cases too, big tasks aren’t really tasks at all; they’re aggregates of many smaller tasks. If something’s sitting on your list for a long time, each day getting skipped over in favor of more immediately doable tasks, it’s probably not very well thought out.

        You’re actively resisting it because you don’t really know what it is. Try to break it down into a set of small tasks, something more like the tasks you are doing in place of the one big task you aren’t doing.

        Procrastination, a technical failure

        Procrastination is, more often than not, a sign of a technical failure, not a moral failure.

        It’s not because we’re bad people that we procrastinate. Most times, procrastination serves as a symptom of something more fundamentally wrong with the tasks we’ve set ourselves.

        It’s important to keep an eye on our procrastinating tendencies, to ask ourselves whenever we notice ourselves pushing things forward what it is about the task we’ve set ourselves that simply isn’t working for us.
