Are you afraid of Friday the 13th?






Did you late at work because you stuck in traffic today? Maybe you are fired? Look at your calendar, today is Friday 13th. If you saw black cat who crossed your way, definitely your day is ruined. 


Legend about Friday 13th is western superstition. Old belief said that Kain killed Abel on that day, and Eve persuaded Adam to bite the apple. Accord Bible, that day is considered as death of Jesus Christ. In old Rome was legend about witches circle, which gathers 12 witches, and 13th member is devil by himself. 


What else happened on this fatal day?

In year 1307 was execution of knights templars , mostly in France, on 13 October.


In the year 1927 was bankrupcty on marketplace and many brokers made suicide. Guess, it was on Friday 13th.





About 20 milion people in SAD suffer from special kind of phobia,   paraskevidekatriaphobia. Greek word "paraksevi" means Friday, dekatreis is thirteen and phobia is fear. This title appeared in 1911 for a first time.

This fear shows up as small disorder , but it can grows until large anxiety, as form of panic or nervous attack.  

Accord some scientists, many hotels and 80% skyscrapers have no 13th floor. Failed journey of "Apollo 13" is also good example, why this number is unlucky.





What is not recommended on Friday 13th?

Don't cut your nails.
Don't go on business meeting.
Don't change your sheets.
Don't go on journey.

This day has also positive side, so people are more cautious in traffic, accord some statistics number of accidents is smaller. Also, movie industry is earning good because of this legend, so everybody knows about famous killer Jason and movie "Friday 13". 

Once i got two bad marks on Friday 13th, but it was result of my laziness, i did not study enough. People are used to ask roots in superstition because it is easier to blame demons and devils for possible troubles. 

You attract what you feel, so if you afraid that something will happen on that day, it will happen. As famous Gioacchino Rossini considered Friday 13th as unlucky and  died on that day.

Women are not weak as they look

Where is a fight, there is love. Since childhood opposite genders tease each other, make conflicts and argue, just to compare their mental strength. Men are strong gender by nature, but many of them underestimate woman’s will and character. Some judgments define a woman as fragile, sensitive creature, and the man who is educated in the traditional family will often underestimate a woman. He will see the weak creature in the corner with a face full of tears. Well, a woman can defend herself in thousand ways. She will seduce you to obey you. She will pretend weakness just to take revenge on you if you humiliate her. Be ready for her trick as on poker table. Especially men who are used to silent, obedient woman can’t count on such resistance. Remember, the woman is the one who is working and clean house after work, carry for kids and for your laundry and your meal. Women are multi-tasking, so how can they be weak? When you fall in love with a woman who can care for herself, she doesn’t …

Are you grateful for the things you have ?

Are you grateful for the things you have in your life? I don’t think about furniture or new plates, i think about your private and professional life. Sometimes, we forget to save gratitude in our heart because our mind is too busy by dreaming about something we still did not realize. Gradation looks like this: I don’t have boyfriend. I have boyfriend but we are not married. We are married but we don’t have kids. We have only one child. Our kid is not obedient, we have problematic teenager.
In professional plan, we can use same pattern: I am studying and i don’t have job. I have job but my salary is small. I have good salary but i have no free time. I have job but my boss is dictator. It is about human nature, where all are rivals, competitors and opponents. Why your neighbor owe expensive car, and you are going at work with bus? Why your kids can’t have designers clothes? Why your friend has bigger flat then you? We are dreaming because of our ambitions. It is not bad, i am also ambiti…

Are you the hunter or the kill?

Criticism is a sensitive field. It is easy to give critics, to mock someone, but it is not easy to receive this in return and to make a joke by yourself. Do you laugh at yourself, in public? Do you allow friends to tease you, even this means that they will overrate your faults and make your values smaller? There is a thin line between social clown and person who loves to make jokes about yourself. If you are a hunter, if you respect yourself, you will allow the certain dose of criticism but you will not be a doormat. If you ask me to whom you must be grateful, maybe my answer will surprise you. Yes, i am grateful to my parents because they give me motivation, strong will, and attitude. I am grateful to my sister because she stood on my side when i felt miserable. I am grateful to my husband for accepting me as i am, even when i was the worst nightmare. Mostly, i am grateful to my rivals, to develop my strength. As i passed my initiation, faced with many troubles and get out from bigg…
