Are you afraid of death?

  • Yes and no. I am more so afraid of the unknown (how will I die? When will I die?) than I am at death itself. I realize at some point everyone dies, and sometimes death is unavoidable due to circumstances. I would like to live out the full term of my life and see the world at an elderly age but I know it isn’t guaranteed & so, I have come to accepted that I could die at any moment but doesn’t mean I am ready to die.

Do you ever feel sad about people you have lost touch with who were once important to you?

  • Every once in a while I think about it, but it doesn’t necessarily effect me negatively but it does weigh on my mind for  a few seconds and I relive a few moments of when I was close to them & think back to those days.

Are you a secretive person? Do you find it easy to confide in other people?

  • I am a secretive person, but I call it being private. I am a private person by choice & I don’t find it easy to confide in others because I don’t particularly enjoy sharing things about myself with people until I feel comfortable enough, or have invested in the person for a duration of time (which can be lengthy) or it could never happen at all. Not everyone was meant to stay in your life for a the longer term — so I have to know this will be a long term investment and not something superficial.

Health Conditions that Can Be Treated with Hemp Oil: Healthy Life

 

 

Hemp seeds are from the same species of cannabis but have a different variety. However, when you buy hemp oil online, many retailers mention the little amount of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana. Seeds of hemp are highly nutritious and constitute a rich amount of healthy fats, minerals, and proteins.

 

Boosts Healthy Heart

 

Heart diseases have become the most common reason for death worldwide. There are many medicines which can keep your heart safe but there is not any assurance that does it actually works. However, intake hemp seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease. Nitric oxide is a gas molecule that makes your blood vessels dilate and relax by lowering blood pressure. The seeds of hemp oil contain rich amount of amino acid arginine, which produces nitric oxide in your body.

 

High Amount of Nutrition

 

Hemp seeds are very nutritious and they have a mild, and nutty flavor. They are also known as hemp hearts and contains over 30% of fat and gamma-linolenic acid. Meanwhile, hemp seeds are also rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). They are also a great source of vitamin E and minerals such as sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, phosphorus, and potassium. The best thing about buying hemp seeds online is that they can be consumed raw, cooked or roasted.

 

Healthier and Plump Skin

 

The oil extracted from the hemp seeds has shown remarkable traces of relieving from dry skin, inflammation, alleviating itchiness and other skin disorders. The seeds also carry the rich constituents of polyunsaturated, essential fatty acids and a 3:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3. There have been positive studies when hemp oil was given to people with eczema for improving blood levels of essential fatty acids.

 

Hemp Seed Alleviates the Symptoms of PMS and Menopause

 

Studies say almost 80 of women suffer from painful periods while triggering emotional and physical pain. The pain caused by premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is due to the hormone prolactin. To reduce the effect of prolactin, hemp can be found effective as it has Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) that produces prostaglandin E1. In a study, women who were intaking 1 gram of essential fatty acid through hemp oil or seed have experienced a significant downfall in the pain. It is good news for the ladies who have not seen any visible benefits in reducing the PMS pain even after following a proper medication or other PMS therapies.

 

Proper Digestion

 

You will be stunned to hear that hemp seed is highly rich in soluble and insoluble fiber, containing 20% and 80 percent. Meanwhile, healthy digestion requires a sufficient amount of fiber. Therefore, adding the required amount of hemp oil or seed can help your body to boost the amount of fiber while regulating blood sugar level.

 

Conclusion: There are many countries where using hemp oil seems not to be easy. But, fortunately, there are countries that are undertaking its countless benefits by adding it into the staple food to provide excellent nutritional value. They are highly rich in healthy fats, high-quality protein and several minerals which makes them appreciated by the therapeutic industry. However, make sure the bottle of hemp seed which you are picking does not contain more than trace amounts of THC (< 0.3%), which is an active compound of marijuana.

Have your views on love changed since you were a teenager? If so, why?

  • As a teenager, I don’t think I was too worried about “love” until I was possibly 18.. and anything before that age, I don’t think I had a good grasp on the concept — it was more so lust or the feeling of wanting to be loved by someone. I would have to say my views have changed some due to the fact I have dated more people/had more relationships, observed other people’s relationships and dynamics, I am more open minded, and I have had time to look back on some of my previous relationships and friendships .. which helped to give me clarity and some understanding. I don’t think it is bad that my views might have changed, I think he shows my growth.

Do you have any toxic friendships in your life? How can you deal with this?

  • Nope. I try to keep my distance from people who are toxic and/or be civil but now allow myself to get “close” or form a bond with people who are toxic.

Is there a relationship in your life that you would like to change? How would you change it?

There are a few relationships in my life currently that I would like to change — all of which needed changed years ago but still haven’t reached the point where I am satisfied, more like content because it has improved but not more than a little steps forward and 100 steps backwards. 

  1. The relationship between me and my younger brother (24) — we are 3 years apart so we have grown up together and I feel as though our relationship/bond is not there; it is forced or neglected. I have raised my hand and tried to connect & find a way to bond but he pushes it away or ignores it and it sucks because I think as siblings, we should be a lot closer than what we are & I always hope he will eventually jump on board or at least TRY, but fails to do so for whatever reason. Neither one of us is perfect but our relationship is not healthy– it is more or less a battle that has been going on for years & instead of displaying it for the world to see, we tend to hide it and pretend nothing is wrong– I feel as though he has grown to be more arrogant in general but especially towards me, he feels more superior and thinks everything he says is right, he has the support of my mom (which is another not great relationship I have), he lacks any form of respect towards me as human and finds joy in making me feel like crap most of the time. I’d love to get to the point where we can hang out and really be involved in each others lives but so far it hasn’t happened. 
  2. The relationship between my mom and myself, this one has shown improvement but again not enough where it stays consistent. I feel as though my mom will always have conditions for her love when it comes to me compared to my sibling. It shows and it gets old and my grandmother witnesses it & while I do love my mom and wouldn’t wish anything bad to happen to her, I feel myself steady detaching myself from her and my younger brother & unless something changes between now and the next year, I will find myself without either one of them being apart of my life due to my own choice because I don’t want a relationship like this for the rest of my life, and I need positive supportive people in my life who love me without conditions & don’t have me feeling like I have to constantly prove myself worthy of their love. 
  3. The relationship with one or both of my cousins — we don’t have a relationship really, because we don’t talk besides the holidays and even then, not much is said between us & I want that to change but honestly, I don’t know how I would go about it at this rate because I don’t know if I am willing to make the first move in hopes they take to it. I would agree that I should be the bigger person or TRY but at the same time, I get sick of trying and failing or feeling like I am overextending myself to be let down or made a fool at the end of the road. I think when it comes to this relationship, I would like to see her make the first move and hopefully I am receptive of it in return. 
This was a good question indeed, it really made me analyze the type of relationships I have with my family & friends honestly & it also made me aware of what would need to be done in order for it to be salvaged or maintained in a healthy way. I like to hope by this time next year, all three of these relationships are better and have shown great improvement or steps towards it and I will have positive things to share but I can’t hold my breathe. I don’t like playing victim but at the same time I don’t like taking fault for things that I didn’t choose to do & I would like for my family members to take some form of responsibility in this and at least try to talk about it with me or make some form of change that opens a door for discussion & peace.
