if you're submissive, you do what your told with no question and can come across as being scared of the person you are being submissive to. Submissive posture is different to dominant. You would stand smaller and would probably look down /fidget a bot. Being submissive can be mis-read as being scared, but it's kinda being really obedient and trusting. A submissive dog would do as it's told and would not jump up or bark at the person, it would be calm/submissive :)

How long can a man survive with prostate cancer?

Well, my father is still alive. He has been fighting prostate cancer for 15+! years. Since about 2 years it has turned into advanced prostate cancer with multiple metastases. He is still fighting. Originally the doctors gave him 8 to 10 years after having removal of the cancerous prostate. I dont think anyone knows exactly. But his good spirits, positive attitude and not giving up enabled him to still live comfortable. He is not able to do some things, like long walks etc., but he is still alive and still fighting.

What is the natural remedies for deep horizontal line wrinkle between the eyes or nasion area?

The muscle responsible for this is the nasalis. The classic image of this happens when someone is squinting their eyes while trying to see small print when reading. Since this is a muscle,the best natural remedy is to retrain it. The less natural method would be to poison it into inactivity by injecting botox, which is what you are most likely trying to avoid. The natural method would involve a body and mind approach, because the muscle is only responding to commands from the nervous system. So, if you massage it, that will relieve the physical component, and then address the neurological behavior, which is most likely a recurrent habitual attitude towards something. You can massage it by gently placing your index fingers in the deepest hollow between your eyes and then, in unison, make small gentle circles as you focus on your breathing and relaxing as much as possible. The mental part may, or may not, be as much fun. The question I would ask is, "What is it that you are trying to see more clearly?" Think about that, meditate on that, pray on that, and be open to the answer which will naturally come to you when you are ready to receive it. Then, when the mind and the body have both been reunited in a more harmonious and balanced relationship, your wrinkle should be less noticeable.

What is self loyalty?

Self loyalty is an attitude which helps you stay true to yourself when asked to do something you don´t believe in. You can stay true to yourself in various ways. You can do so by openly refusing cooperation. However that can come at a price you may not be willing to pay. A more sophisticated approach is to offer an alternative. If this is not accepted and you think you just can´t risk the punishment and do need the reward, you are left with having to play ´the game´. When once in this game, it becomes clear that you will have to do whatever it is you didn´t want to: you will have to make a choice. When you go along even though it feels bad to do so, you are heading towards abandoning self loyalty. However, and this is what makes self loyalty such a complex concept: if you know that doing what you don´t want to do, gets you something that is worth more than what you try to defend now by refusing, you are still loyal to yourself. This means that self loyalty is determined by your own personal hierarchy of values, beliefs, opportunities and expectations and your of course: your perception of loyalty. Staying loyal to yourself when challenged to abandon what you believe in, starts with feeling you are worth it and have enough power to do so. This is difficult because we are taught that it is good to put aside our own ideas when powerful others want their way. Maintaining self loyalty means having the drive and guts to defend and fight for the conditions that allow you to do what you feel you need to do. Self loyalty in today's world looks like a luxury but is in fact a necessity when we consider happiness and feeling good about yourself, essential. How self loyalty drives behavior, varies per person but it definitely brings a sense of dignity when you manage to obtain it. When dignity helps us in feeling better about ourselves self loyalty is a concept that deserves thinking about.
