With all the madness in the past few days surrounding Kim K’s divorce and all the rumors about her marriage being staged for television brought about some deep thinking on my part, especially after hearing her statement on “not wanting to disappoint people.” How many of us go through life not wanting to disappoint others so we disregard our own feelings in the midst? I can attest to the fact that I have placed my feelings on hold in order to please others, but that is definitely not good. It comes down to trusting yourself and doing what you feel deep within your heart is best for you. Continue reading “Pleasing others before yourself, that’s no bueno.”
We live in a world full of societal expectations, which sometimes hinder us from living life, letting lose and just being. Every detail of our lives is scrutinized one way or the other. Media outlets, individuals, religious leaders, just about everybody minus newborns has an opinion about how we should be.
In the midst of trying to keep up with the
Kardashians, I mean societal guidelines handed down to us, we forget about ourselves. Pleasing our friends, co-workers, family and enemies alike becomes a daily part of our life’s routine.
Though not intentional, seemingly by default through a learned process of being part of society, we don’t expend the joys of living life on earth to their maximum potential. Instead of getting a french manicure that is polished and oh so classy, go for a bright nail polish that will blind peoples eyes. Continue reading “Let loose, live and just be”
What do you think about someone who has slept with more than 100 people? Well, such bed hoppers might be referred to as “porn stars” because those are the ones having that many sexual encounters, only difference is they get paid for it. I don’t know how our readers feel about this topic or if they relate to it in any way, but I find having sex so many times with DIFFERENT partners preposterous. Why would you treat your temple in such a way? It’s either you’re a harlot, have some serious psychological issues, or like I’ve stated earlier, a porn star getting paid to be dangerously promiscuous. Continue reading “100 and counting”
Sometimes life does not pan out the way we thought it would. Shit happens and throws everything off course. In that instance, retracing our steps and going back to the drawing board to rediscover our purpose in life becomes important.
If you find yourself in need of re-organizing, the following is a helpful guide-that has not been endorsed by a professional (read doctor) as being effective. But it is worth a try, at your own risk.
Have you ever wondered why some people feel the need to presumptuously convey THEIR thoughts about YOUR life? especially when theirs is up in shambles. It’s like getting slapped in the face by someone in a more harsh predicament than yourself. For example, why would you voice your opinion about my life and feel it’s appropriate for you to give your two sense on things? Continue reading “Your concern is neither relevant nor appreciated.”

How do you know when the person you’re dating is the ‘one’, meaning, the person you want to spend the rest of your life with? This question is often asked by people who have been dating for a while, and sometimes even by people who are already married. The truth is you can never be too sure; you meet someone, you fall inlove, and you feel like that person is your everything, but sometimes it doesn’t work out well.
If you have no clue as to what I mean by ‘Light Switch’ relationship, then maybe you will understand the term on-again/off-again, which is the same thing.
How do I feel about getting back together with an ex? It depends. If you are really in love, and you can work out your issues, then by all means try again. But if you constantly keep getting together and breaking up, that makes no sense and obviously you just can’t solve the issues that are driving you apart.
