Legends about Werewolves

Werewolf legends are overwhelmingly found in old stories common crosswise over Europe. On account of Vlad Tepes III, the fantasy of Dracula has a source point, however a long way from approved. Be that as it may, nobody can state with assurance when in history the legend of the werewolf began. History specialists commonly call attention to that Greek folklore is the wellspring of this fantasy. Yet, Montague Summers, in his 1928’s generally acclaimed book The Werewolf, specified that the Greeks may have received the possibility of lycanthropy from the old Phoenician faction. The religion began in 1200 BC and had existed until 539 BC. With summer’s case and the clique’s age, taken together, we discover the inception of the werewolf fantasy follows back a couple of thousand years. Starting points aside, in addition, one of a kind is the means by which each culture has its very own interpretation of the werewolf legend. This legendary animal really is a global verifiable puzzle.

I have managed to collect the myths about werewolves from all over the world, which I will mention here.

Iceland and Norway

Though the countries are very far from each other yet they share a similar myth. The most celebrated werewolf story in the Volsunga Saga is the account of dad and child, Sigmund and Sinfjotli. While meandering in the forested areas, Sigmund and Sinfjotli happen upon a cabin where they discover two entranced wolf pelts. Whenever put on, either pelt will transform a man into a wolf and will have the power, cleverness, and valor of wolves. Be that as it may, the pelt must be removed each tenth day. Having put on the pelts, Sigmund and Sinfjotli transform into wolves and start meandering about the woods together. Before they split up, they consented to yell to one another if both of them experiences seven men to battle at any given moment. Sinfjotli, the child, breaks the assertion and kills 11 men at one time. Irritated, Sigmund lethally harms his child. Be that as it may, at that point a raven, the flag-bearer of Odin, expedites a recuperating leaf to put Sinfjotli’s injury. After Sinfjotli is recuperated from his injury, he and his dad remove the charmed wolf pelts as the tenth day arrived. They consumed the pelts to fiery remains and liberated themselves from the scourge of lycanthropy.

Mexico

Werewolves in Mexico are known as the Nahual or Nagual. Both are articulated Na’wal. Despite the fact that Mexico was a province of Spain for a long time, the werewolf legend pervasive in the nation did not coexist with the European werewolf legend. The legend stays in its unique shape right up ’til today. That being stated, the confidence in Mexican werewolfism or nagualism shifts from area to the district. It is accepted by some Mesoamerican Indians that the nahual is a gatekeeper soul that dwells in a creature, for example, deer, panther, bird, wildcat, mountain lion, et cetera. In different locales, and in a more unpropitious variant of nagualism, it is trusted that intense men can change themselves into a creature to cause hurt. A relationship exists between the last conviction and the word ‘nahual’, which started from the word ‘nahualli‘, signifying “mask”. This alludes to the witchcraft by which mystical performers change their physical structures into that of a creature.

Greece

The Greek cause of the werewolf legend has numerous variations. One of the soonest and the best-known emphasis is found in the Roman artist Ovid’s sonnet Metamorphoses, which was distributed in 8 AD. As per Ovid: King Lycaon was the despot of Arcadia. One day Zeus went to Lycaon’s castle taking on the appearance of a customary man. After Zeus had uncovered his actual character, the ruler secretly conceived an arrangement to test whether he really was a divine being. Ruler Lycaon murdered one of his prisoners named Epirus, bubbled and broiled the injured individual’s substance, and served it to Zeus. Zeus did not eat it. Totally incensed, he set the ruler’s castle ablaze and executed his 50 children with lighting jolts, reviled the lord, and sent him into the wild where he changed into a yelling wolf.

North America

With regards to genuine werewolf legends in America, they are predominantly acquired from the European pioneers. At the point when these pioneers started settling North America (referred to then as the New World), they saw a significant populace of wolves – genuine wolves. At the point when their legends blended with those of Native American werewolf legends – as of now in presence before the European entries, America made the werewolf fantasy we see today.

South America

The Luison, or el lobizon, is the South American werewolf. Its portrayal has just been canvassed in another article on Listverse. Before we start diving into its inception, we should talk somewhat more about the luison. The fantasy of the luison basically wins in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. It was trusted that the seventh child of a group of all young men would transform into a lusion the evening of a full moon, particularly on the off chance that it fell on a Friday. The conviction was particularly solid in Argentina. So solid was this conviction that the Argentine President, Juan Domingo Perón, declared that every single seventh child of a family should be sanctified through the water.

The inception of the lusion legend is found in Guarani folklore. The Guarani are the indigenous individuals of Paraguay whose folklore expressed there were seven beasts. Of the seven beasts, the last one, known as lusion, was awfully disfigured in appearance (yet had no obvious likeness with a wolf) and came to known as the God of Death.

At the point when the Europeans colonized South America, luison’s relationship with death started to melt away after some time. The lusion fantasy in the end blended with European werewolf legends. Presently the luison is viewed as an animal that is half man and half wolf.

Germany

An officer expressed this story happened to his own granddad. His granddad went into the timberland to cut wood with a companion and a third man. There was something bizarre about the third man, yet the granddad couldn’t tell without a doubt what it was. After they had done their activity and had turned out to be worn out, the third man suggested they sleep. In like manner, the three men set down on the ground and shut their eyes.

The granddad claimed to nod off, however really kept his eyes somewhat open. He was quick to discover the explanation for the third man’s bizarre conduct. The third man hoped to check whether the other two men were resting. When he was sure they were, he put on (or removed) a belt and turned into a wolf. Be that as it may, he didn’t take after a characteristic wolf. He looked rather changed. He rapidly kept running off to an adjacent field where he trapped a pregnant female steed and ate up it totally. The man returned, took off (or put on) his belt, and set down again in human frame close to the others. While coming back to town, the third man grumbled about having a stomach hurt. As they entered the town door, the granddad whispered into the man’s ear, “When one eats up an entire steed… “But before he could complete his sentence, the third man intruded, “Had you said this to me in the woods, you would not have the capacity to state this now.”  The story, distributed in the second 50% of the nineteenth century, is one of the most seasoned and most mainstream werewolf legends in Germany.

France

The earliest reported case on French lycanthropy was found in 1214. In a report, Gervaise of Tilbury revealed to Emperor Otto IV that individuals in Auvergne, France supposedly transformed into wolves amid the full moon.

Rome

A hireling, named Niceros, describes, One day he was on a stroll with his host. When they happened upon a burial ground, the host all of a sudden removed his garments, urinated around them around, and changed into a wolf. Instantly after, the host (now a wolf) kept running off to the field toward a rush of eating sheep. Niceros could barely trust his very own eyes until the point that a sheep proprietor said to him that his worker had harmed a wolf with a pitch-fork. The following day, Niceros saw an injury on the neck of his host. The injury check on his neck was in the correct position where the pitchfork harmed the wolf.

How to know that its time to end your relationship

Seldom do I advise patients or clients to end their connections. I like to believe that in the end, we gain the point of view and vitality important to settle on the choices that serve us best; be that as it may, I’ve upheld innumerable customers throughout the years as their connections unwound, and a few topics appear to develop over and over.

On the off chance that at least one of coming up next is valid for you, it may merit rethinking your relationship status.

Abusive and disrespectful towards you: You truly need to separate from the person who says he adores you, however, is wedded or focused on other ladies. You are only his hang lose in light of the fact that that ship has just cruised, and you should be with somebody who cherishes you in and out.

Dominates you: You are the supervisor of yourself, you assume the responsibility of your life. You truly needn’t bother with somebody who continues ruling and putting you down all the time. Love and care are alright until till transforms into mastery which may prompt oppressiveness as well.

Unavailable for you: Regardless of how bustling your lives get, there are times when you simply need to trust your musings in a man who is paying attention to each arbitrary idea of yours, who just sits with you to watch the sun go down. In the event that he’s always inaccessible, make sure his quality is for all time impaired! You needn’t bother with an accomplice who is never close by, who discloses to you that he cherishes you yet is never accessible to show it.

Over Possessive about you: Possessiveness is alright until the point that it transforms into obsession. You may overlook his consideration named ‘possessiveness’ at first, however, you’ll choke later.

In the event that at least one of these signs impacted you, I urge you to examine your musings and emotions further. Talk with a specialist, trust in a companion, and maintain a diary or journal about your experience. Development and mindfulness are important results of undesirable connections, however, life is too short to even think about remaining in them once we’ve realized whatever it is we’re intended to learn. A poisonous relationship can prompt pressure, sorrow, nervousness, and even restorative issues. So there is absolutely no point in stressing out yourself. Whenever you see these signs, just say ‘Goodbye’.

Types of People You Should Stay Away From

There are many kinds of people whom we meet at points of our life. Some are good, some are not. But there are some kinds of people among all those who are absolutely not good for us. They obviously affect our mental health. Here are three types of people one should stay away from.


The Manipulator: These people are the most difficult of all. They are experts of control, in spite of the fact that they presumably believe they’re uber-useful. Manipulators are ace catch pushers who will go after your weaknesses to inspire you to fall into line. You can spot controllers immediately when you understand they’re typically endeavoring to persuade you regarding something that they need you to do, on their terms. Abstain from surrendering control in your life to one of these.


The Self-Claimed Victims: These people keep on claiming that how this or that had happened to them and they do not have good luck. It is like as if they are the only ones who have issues and others do not have troubles in their lives. Sooner or later, being around this kind of consistent “poor me” will end up perilous to your prosperity. Unfortunate casualties are regularly searching for others to approve their sentiments and it tends to be a tricky incline between being caring and steady and acknowledging you ought to have defined a few limits. 


The Underminers: These are the type of people who absolutely are disgusting. If you personally ask me I can handle a manipulator rather than have these sort of people around me. Let me tell you why. Do you realize that individual who professes to be your well-wisher yet dependably has a sharp comment that brings you down? Stowing away under the appearance of being your ally, the underminer enjoys incredible telling you your deficiencies, quirks, and oversights. Your abilities and victories? They’re not as fascinating. What the underminer needs is to feel great when others come up short, or believe they’re coming up short. Enormous slip-up to permit one of these into your life.

Beware of Narcissists

Narcissistic personality disorder is one of a few sorts of identity issue — is a psychological condition in which individuals have their very own expanded feeling significance, a profound requirement for extreme consideration and adoration, agitated connections, and an absence of compassion for other people.

Narcissistic identity issue is discovered all the more generally in men. The reason is obscure however likely includes a blend of hereditary and ecological elements. Side effects incorporate an intemperate requirement for esteem, negligence for others’ emotions, a powerlessness to deal with any feedback and a feeling of qualification.

The indications of narcissistic identity issue include: vainglorious feeling of significance, distraction with boundless achievement, conviction that one is extraordinary and novel, exploitative of others, absence of sympathy and extreme arrogance. These people are also known as soul-less as they cannot feel any pain of anyone and are extreme ruthless. They have an unrealistic sense of superiority. Their mind is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited successpower, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.

Narcissists are ace controllers and will endeavor to make you feel both regretful and debilitated. They are extremely selfish and believe that they deserve certain privileges because they are unique. But ultimately the narcissists need self-esteem. They need trust in themselves and experience torment as a result of it. The external shell of narcissism is only their method for adapting to it.

Though treatment can help but there is no cure to it.

How is it to Live With a Narcissist?

Similarity and collaboration among narcissism and bipolar vainglory. Somebody who presents with narcissistic identity attributes can be hard to recognize from somebody who is encountering mellow to direct hypomania (bipolar inclination rise less intense than full craziness) with the pompous view of self.

Now I have a very great experience with a narcissist, and I am just sharing this to clarify how these people exactly function. But if you are thinking of sympathizing then don’t. I have already overcome it and I am glad that I had experienced it.

I won’t go into all the details but just to keep it short, It was just after my mom died this guy was staying at our house as a friend because his office was far from his house and our house was near. Many things happened, it became verbal, then physical abuse. He had frustration over me about certain things, the biggest issue was I never got sexually involved with him. He also had an issue that my best friend is a guy. I was tortured on a daily basis. He burnt my feet once then there are several cut marks on my left arm which he did with the knife. There is a mark of a stab of the left arm beside the bullet mark. Often my classmates would point out fingerprints on my neck, arms. He hit on my arms, legs but never on my face. He had an issue when I accomplished something, he showed me off as a trophy, and he behaved as if he owned me. At least I am lucky he never raped me to be extremely honest. Later things got bad and I had to tell my dad.

In 2016 when my dad died and after 20 days when everyone came to know that, he contacted me via email. He mocked my father’s death and said that I deserved to be an orphan. Usually, it is impossible to hurt me but those words affected me. I slit my wrist and tried to drown myself in my bathtub but I was saved. It was as if those words stuck in my head and again I tried to commit suicide again by gulping sleeping pills. I was saved again. I became suicidal. I tried talking to my senior doctors but I could not speak out about my problems with them. A good friend of mine counselled me.

I never knew that being in a relationship with a narcissist would affect me so bad. He is the reason that now no matter how much pain is inflicted upon me they don’t hurt me anymore. He stopped contacting me after my accident in May ’17.

Narcissistic relationships tend to be very challenging. Narcissistic partners usually have difficulty really loving someone else, because they don’t truly love themselves.  They are so focused on themselves that they cannot really “see” their partner as a separate person.  Ending a relationship with a narcissist is incredibly difficult, for many reasons. 


Narcissistic partners don’t want to let their prey go easily. I believe that there is no point in running away from a narcissistic partner, just face them. No matter what just face them for your sake atleast.

I guess, that’s all for today.

Stay safe, take care.

Difference between Psychopath and Sociopath

I actually never thought that I will write on this topic. I came up with this topic after researching. This idea was triggered by Mr. David Elliott from The single dad’s guide to life when on my post “How to deal with a broken heart” he commented this…
Mr. Elliott is a great person with lovely ideas and I have been a great fan of his earlier works as well.




The names psychopath and sociopath may sound similar because both of them have similar qualities but yet they are different from each other. A psychopath is a person experiencing an endless mental issue with unusual or vicious social conduct and a sociopath is a person with an identity issue showing itself in extraordinary standoffish states of mind and conduct.

Psychopathy can be thought of as a more extreme type of sociopathy with more manifestations. In this manner, all psychopaths are sociopaths yet sociopaths are not really psychopaths. According to the introduction of one with psychopathy or sociopathy varies. As per Kelly McAleer, Psy.D,

“The psychopath is callous, yet charming. He or she will con and manipulate others with charisma and intimidation and can effectively mimic feelings to present as “normal” to society. The psychopath is organized in their criminal thinking and behavior, and can maintain good emotional and physical control, displaying little to no emotional or autonomic arousal, even under situations that most would find threatening or horrifying. The psychopath is keenly aware that what he or she is doing is wrong, but does not care.

“Conversely, the sociopath is less organized in his or her demeanor; he or she might be nervous, easily agitated, and quick to display anger. A sociopath is more likely to spontaneously act out in inappropriate ways without thinking through the consequences. Compared to the psychopath, the sociopath will not be able to move through society committing callous crimes as easily, as they can form attachments and often have ‘normal temperaments.’ . . .”

As per the Society for the Study of Psychopathy, psychopath characteristics includes:

Absence of regret

Absence of compassion

Absence of profound enthusiastic connections

Narcissism

Shallow appeal

Untruthfulness

Manipulativeness

Heedless hazard taking

However, a sociopath is diagnosed at the age of 18 and their traits include:

Rehashed infringement of the law

Inescapable lying and double dealing

Physical forcefulness

Heedless negligence for security of self or others

Steady flightiness in work and family conditions

Absence of regret

Over Protective towards the one they care for

At last, I would just say that Psychopaths and Sociopaths both are harmful to society. Despite the fact that psychopaths and sociopaths both are fit for carrying out terrible wrongdoings, however, sociopaths are caring about them with whom they have a bond. They will harm themselves but not the person they love or care about. Sociopaths befriend very fewer people and the one they trust they protect them with all their life even if it means by hurting own self.

Well, that was one heck of an information isn’t it?

Though I am ending it here but there is more to know, learn and study on this topic. And I would love to thank Mr. Elliott again for this great idea. Check out The Single Dad’s Guide to Life if you are already bored with my mental health studies.

I will see you again soon. Till then, Take Care and Stay safe.
