Rebound Relationships: Are you on the rebound? Or are you a Rebound?

I caught myself guilty of a series of rebound relationships and the worst part was that I had no idea that I was rebounding. Here I am emotionally drained and mentally consumed sharing with you my two cents on rebounds. I pulled out all my "rebound files" and put my analytical skills into action.

What is a rebound?
A rebound is a relationship that is supposed to stop, or help you escape, the pain of another relationship - call it a painkiller, a band aid, or a quick fix.

Usually it is right after, or at the very end of, a relationship that went, or is going, belly up. Like taking a pain killer before going to the dentist for fear of toothache after the visit, more vulnerable people start their rebound relationship as a precautionary measure.

1) A bruised ego
If you feel that you have been dumped or rejected, the ideal solution would be to embark on another relationship to prove to your ex, and to yourself, that you are desirable and that one man's poison is another man's gain.

Searching for Laila's Identity (Kolena Laila Initiative)

In September 2008, I was honoured to receive an invitation to contribute to a woman's empowerment initiative called Kolena Laila - We Are All Laila. It was the first time I had heard of this campaign.

I got in touch with Lasto Adri* Blue, known as Eman, who is one of the leading organisers of the initiative. She explained to me that 2008 was Kolena Laila's third year and that Laila is the heroine of a novel entitled The Open Door (El Bab El Maftouh) by writer Latifa El Zayyat. Laila was chosen as a symbol for each and every Egyptian woman who is trying to mould her independent personality in an oppressive society.

My attempt at an Ethical Will

I always thought that the ideal time for writing a will is when a person feels that the end is near - I have no clue where I got that idea from. Dr. Baines gave me a totally new perspective. In an ethical will, people share a part of themselves and this part helps them identify and act upon their beliefs. It also helps the reader of this will to understand where they are coming from and what they value most. This could be an ideal tool between couples at anytime of their relationship, between parents and their children regardless of their age, between grand parents and their grand children, or between friends and business associates.

There is no better time to share with you my ethical will than at the end of a fruitful and very productive year:

• I have learnt the joy of tolerance and that he who judges shall be judged. People are different and I am different too.

• I believe in mercy and forgiveness. I am still working on second chances though. We all make mistakes.

• Fame does not last but the people you have helped will remember your forever.

• Beauty does not last either but the people who see your heart will always see your beauty.

ما وراء الجزمة

أنا مش هـ اتكلم كتير فى بوش يستاهل ضرب الجزم و لا لأ و لا فى شجاعة الصحفى العراقى و لا فى مشاعر العرب و كرامة الامة و لا فى مصير العلاقات الدولية و لا فى تعليقات الناس و لا اى كلام من ده. أنا هـ علق على حاجة مستفزة جدا تدل على تفككنا و عدم قدرتنا على التعاون و لا الاتحاد و لا العمل الجماعى ... انا مش احنا
بوش اتضرب بالجزمة امبارح باليل .. نقول الساعة 11 و انا دلوقت بـ اكتب التدوينة دى الساعة 10 و 30دقيقة الصبح .. يعنى اقل من 12 ساعة
فى اقل من 12 ساعة جالى الدعوات دى للانضمام لمجموعات على الفيس بوك ما بين مدافعة عن الصحفى و شماته فى بوش .. كام؟ اهم












كل جروب من دول فيه ما بين 9 الى 60 عضو طبعا هـ يزيدوا مع الوقت
السؤال: هو ليه كل واحد عمل جروب لوحده؟
ليه مش كل الناس انضمت لجروب واحد علشان يبقى صوتها اعلى و اوضح و اقوى؟
ليه المنافسة الداخلية ما بين الناس دول لما هدفهم واحد؟
ليه كل واحد قبل ما يعمل الجروب بتاعه ما شافش لو حد سبقه و لا لأ؟
اداة البحث فى الفيس بوك بكلمة او كلمتين هتوضح مين عمل ايه ... الاتحاد قوة يا جماعة
تخيلوا لو كانوا كل دول جروب واحد و كل عضو يدعو اصدقائه كان العدد وصل كام فى ال12 ساعة دول؟
