5 Things to Consider When You Need a Relationship Advice

Relationship advice is everywhere! It seems like every time I turn around, I hear or read someone's two cents on a relationship that isn't theirs. The more I think about it, the more I believe that exposing yourself to this information is a bad idea, unless you're getting it straight from a certified professional. It's okay to occasionally vent to loved ones or read articles that give simple relationship tips every now and then. In fact, doing so can be quite helpful and therapeutic if done in moderation. But making relationship gossip and advice seeking a habit or giving away too many details to too many people can ultimately be detrimental to an otherwise perfectly good relationship. 5 Reasons to Avoid Seeking Relationship Advice From Non-Experts...

5 Steps to Find Peace After a Painful Breakup

It’s the oldest story in the world: Love is gained, it blooms and then it fades out or is squashed by outside forces. It’s always a learning experience and sometimes lost love can be tragic, visceral and all encompassing.

How to Diffuse Any Argument: 3 Helpful Tips

Let's agree for a moment that arguments are pointless. Let's concede that there's not a single person in this world who thinks exactly the way you think, who knows and believes the things you know and believe, nor acts and responds to certain situations specifically in the same manner you would.

Dealing With Rejection: It’s Never About THEM

I recently received an email from a friend who was telling me about a particular man in her life who she’d once had a brief encounter with. This man however was married, completely unavailable both physically and emotionally and my friend was still struggling with the fact that he was making no effort to be a part of her life.

But she still refused to let go holding onto an idea of what could have been. She seemed to be living for him and for any sign or attempt of recognition that their encounter meant something to him.

What We Should Learn About Love Right Now

Since the early age I was frequently told that there will come a day when, after some good chasing, longing, yearning and the ultimate hide and seek game, probably, if I am lucky enough, I will find that notorious "other half".

Back then I didn't know that I was deeply conditioned, tricked into a blind belief that in order to feel whole and complete I have to go and find my "other half". Meaning that I would have to accept the notion that my happiness/unhappiness is dependent on another person. Does it sound familiar? Subconsciously I felt resentment towards the idea that I needed someone to complete me in order to be truly happy but I couldn't quite figure out how to put that feeling into solid words.
