Written by Life Coach Carioca Da Gema


The dinner table is the home’s theater.  The place where we show our love, start many fights, tell many lies, and toss bombshells.  At the dinner table we nourish ourselves with good meals and have good times.

These meals are packed with clues of the environment in which the family raises their children and conducts their affairs.

“Don’t talk business during dinner!”

“…my best client moved thousands of miles away”

“Dad, I do not want to go to college”

Like the family you were born into, your environment is not a choice made by you. Life lessons taught from this designated circle of personalities and beliefs will follow and help to build your own way of life.

There are good and bad environments to be brought up in, but the point here is that it isn’t about you, this set of truths are made by people that came before you.

Personal growth will inevitably lead you out to experience different versions of your previous beliefs, and become an individual.

These self discoveries happen during our young adulthood.  For many unleashing the individual trapped within self proves difficult.

“I will not make you dependent on me.  My approach is to find alternative options under a circumstance and open new doors into a resolution of old problems. Clear the docket so you can see things from other angles as you absorb other possibilities. In time, after you had conquered your needs, you will be able to replace what does not work, accept what you cannot change, and accomplish what you want.”

If my writing helped or entertained you in any way, please consider a donation to assist Edge of Humanity Magazine to continue to provide neutral, outside of the box content.


Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshipers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.

Thank you.
