“For better or worse, megacities – by virtue of their resources, their size and their impact – are at the leading edge of change in many countries. Reading the social science literature seems to tell us that this is for the worse. A very broad current in urban sociology has associated economic globalisation with the creation of a wider spectrum of jobs and with a challenge to traditional social ties, leading to more segregated societies. Many urban scientists and urban geographers continue to condemn gigantism”.
Governing Megacities in Emerging Countries
A “Conferência Internacional sobre a Água, Megacidades e Mudança Global (Conferência)” da “Organização das Nações Unidas para a Educação, a Ciência e a Cultura (UNESCO na sigla inglesa)” foi um evento que fez parte da programação da “21.ª sessão anual da Conferência das Partes (COP 21, na sigla inglesa)” da “Convenção - Quadro das Nações Unidas sobre as Alterações Climáticas (CQNUAC ou UNFCCC, na sigla inglesa)” e da “11.ª sessão da Conferência das Partes enquanto Reunião das Partes no Protocolo de Quioto (CMP 11, na sigla inglesa)”, que se realizou em Paris, entre 30 de Novembro e 12 de Dezembro de 2015.
So you meet someone, become infatuated, date, and allow your mind to create an exaggerated image of that person. Soon you find that he’s your soul mate.
You don’t want to live without him; he means everything to you. And then he stumbles, somewhere around three months, maybe six months.
He fails to meet your expectations. He loses soul mate status.
“You just aren’t the person I thought you were,” you say, walking out the door.
There are times when we simply do not know what to do, or where to go, next. Sometimes these periods are brief, sometimes lingering.
We can get through these times. We can rely on our program and the disciplines of recovery. We can cope by using our faith, other people, and our resources.
Accept uncertainty. We do not always have to know what to do or where to go next. We do not always have clear direction.
Refusing to accept the inaction and limbo makes things worse.
It is okay to temporarily be without direction. Say “I don’t know,” and be comfortable with that. We do not have to try to force wisdom, knowledge, or clarity when there is none.
Sometimes, as part of taking care of ourselves, it becomes time to end certain relationships. Sometimes, it comes time to change the parameters of a particular relationship.
This is true in love, in friendships, with family, and on the job.
Endings and changes in relationships are not easy. But often, they are necessary.
Sometimes, we linger in relationships that are dead, out of fear of being alone or to postpone the inevitable grieving process that accompanies endings.
Sometimes, we need to linger for a while, to prepare ourselves, to get strong and ready enough to handle the change.
