Toxic Relationships

How many times do we know someone that or something is bad for us but we cling on to it persistently because of force of habit?

A Little Respect!

We’re pushed around. We’re passed over. We change who we are, change what we want to be. And we blame everyone around us for the situations we are in. Bad marriages, bad jobs, bad family lives… Take a second. Why do we allow ourselves to be bullied? When people disrespect us or our time orContinue reading “A Little Respect!”

The Seven Year Itch!

So the husband and I just completed our seventh year of marriage and after every 3 congratulatory messages, the customary 7 year itch joke was then messaged/warned/joked about!

It might be just a thoughtless remark or an angryContinue reading “Just because they are family doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings!”

To the Haters

  The growth of twitter and facebook and social networking in general have spawned a new breed of individuals- the HATERS. They are not experts in a discipline. They are not people wanting to critique or learn or create. They just want to destroy, hurt, hate. The hurtful comments are re-tweeted and commented upon byContinue reading “To the Haters”
