Do people in your life define you?

A few days ago I started thinking how much actually people around us affect our behavior and then I began to analyse that thought through my everyday life.

It’s not uncommon to use certain phrases a lot, but when you really think about where some of those actual phrases came, you can see that you often pick them up from people you are hanging around on every day basis. You can sometimes find yourself pronouncing something as your friend would, maybe even using that one word he or she always puts into a conversation. Also in that package comes copying of their body language. (But copying isn’t the right word for that situation, you are going to find out why later in this text). Even habits belong into this category, like smoking.

Why does that happen? Well, there is a term in psychology called observational learning (or more directly translated from my language to learning by modelling). There are more types of observational learning: modelling, imitation, learning by observing and symbolic learning. Every type is explained in great details in my psychology textbook, but I am not going to bore your with that. Usually this kind of learning is used to teach little kids how to do something, per example how to brush their teeth and that is imitation because the person is imitating someone without understanding what does that behaviour mean. Child is brushing its teeth because it has seen its parents doing so. That is why the right word is imitating, we are in reality imitating the people we are close with. Not on purpose (mostly), but because we are affected by their presence and they by ours.

So today I have indeed explained (like an amateur) how society uses social learning theories and how much people in you life define who you are.

catsHere’s my mood board for May, as it was promised. If you are not familiar with this concept, I basically put together some photos that I rebloged on my tumblr (which is girlonfire-youtuber-lover if anyone is wondering). I have been doing this for three months now and I am going to link other mood boards down bellow. Every last Tuesday of the month I put out a mood board for that month!

Quote when you have no idea what to say?

Here it is, another Tuesday and I have no inspiration or what so ever. I published a random post two days ago, and I have a Sunday Review ready for this Sunday and a Mood Board for next Tuesday (if everything goes as planed), but for today I have nothing. So I decided to write some of my favourite quotes into one post. Lame, I know!


  1. Welcome to my silly life! – P!NK
  2. I love happy endings. They are so rare. – Stephenie Meyer
  3. I’m not like a car you can fix up. I’, never gonna run right. – Stephenie Meyer
  4. Without music, life would be a mistake. – Friedrich Nietzsche
  5. Love all, trust few, do wrong to none. – William Shakespeare
  6. The truth is rarely pure and never simple. – Oscar Wilde
  7. All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt. – Charles M. Schulz
  8. May you live every day of your life. – Jonathan Swift
  9. Whatever you are, be a good one. – Abraham Lincoln
  10. Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. – Haruki Murakami 

That is it for today, 10 simple and short quotes. See you on Sunday and before you go away you could maybe leave your favourite quote or one that you like from my selection ;)!
