I have been with my boyfriend for 5 years. We were really close friends before we started being together and one of the main reasons for me to prolong the relationship was that I didn’t want to lose my best friend. Now we’re done as a couple (it was a common decision) and we would both like to remain "being friends" but I am not sure if that is even possible?
I've been in my job for nearly 2 years and at this point, I have had enough of it. It is the result of more than one irregularities concerning my boss’es performance as an employer decided to find a new job, but it turned out to be difficult. How do I cope, in the meantime, emotionally with the frustration, that results from her abuses and unfairness until I find a new job?
There’s never one solution that fits all, probably some people will never even want to try to have a life with one partner. However, if you feel that you have found a great person with whom you’d like to have a long-lasting happy union, it is possible. You only both need to want to make it work and don’t give up easily.
I have been together with my partner for close to 10 years. It has been a very good relationship so far. We are raising two beautiful children together and in general, we are happy together. I have noticed though that recently I’ve been longing the butterflies and the magic that is there at the beginning when you fall in love.
You may find out that your visions are aligned or you may see that one of you wants a “big fat Greek wedding”, whilst the other prefers the “let’s get married alone on the beach”. It’s important to have those visions clear to be able to compare them and to use them during your decision-making process.
The love of my life comes from another country. We just got engaged and now we need to decide: where do we marry? The thing is, his family is huge, he has a lot of cousins and uncles and aunts that he constantly keeps in touch with. On my side, the family is way smaller. (He's French, I am Polish, by the way.) And here comes the problem....
Regardless if you are single, in a troubled relationship, or in a happy one that only needs a little bit of an improvement, this exercise can be a blessing to your love life. It will help you to discover what do you really want from a relationship, and to highlight all those little dark areas, that you need to work on.
We all experience those days where we just want to bury ourselves under the blanket and pretend that we don’t exist. It gets even more tricky for those of us who have small kids, from whom you can’t really hide (unless you find someone else to take care of them). It is pretty common to have those days every now and again. We just have to be mindful of not running into a situation where in a long run those shitty days fill in more of our calendar than the awesome days.
Motherhood has definitely been the most humbling experience in my life. It just turns your world upside down… over and over again. It gets you places where you can prove that you are a Superhuman: you can live on no sleep and barely any food for days… right after you have withstood the immense pain of giving birth. But it may also take some of us to dark places where we act like Under-human
The fact is that people who trust in God or the Universe find it easier to let go of fear. Fear of the unknown is often one of the main reasons why we hold on to the things that no longer serve us. They are at least familiar and we know what to expect. But since we have established in the previous options that being human is very much about learning and growing, it may be a good idea for you to work on increasing your trust in the higher force.
Leaving your comfort zone may be a stressful experience. Taking that leap into the unknown feels pretty damn scary. That’s why many people remain in their comfort zone until it becomes so unbearable that they simply can’t take it any longer and they just need to break free. You are in a place where both staying where you are and moving forward are connected with some sort of discomfort. The thing is that one of them will take you somewhere and the other will not.
Saying goodbye to the people that have been an important part of our lives is a distressful experience. It may almost feel like a breakup, even if there was no romantic relationship involved. In this first goodbye, we will reflect on why it is important to say a proper goodbye and how to do it the most loving way, so that you get a good resolution.
I'm a musician; music is my passion and something that I truly love doing. My challenge is that after I go back from work and then take care of my son I feel tired. I don't really feel like doing anything music-related: I don't have time to work on it and my creativity is not there. My question is, how do I get back to creating and recording music while most of the time I feel exhausted and uninspired?
I have a boyfriend and I am in a relationship for a year.It's all great and I was convinced that it's a good relationship. But last weekend I went out with my girlfriends and one of them just installed Tinder so we were looking at it for fun, and then suddenly my boyfriend's picture shows up. I was surprised and shocked.
I would really like to start my own business. I know exactly what it will be and I have well-researched how to deal with all the practical things. I have consulted a mentor with my business plan and it all looks really solid and promising. Yet I am stuck. Even though I have my resignation form printed & signed, I keep on second-guessing myself.
Have you ever made a bad decision? Not necessarily recently, but maybe "back in a day"? And if yes, how did you cope with it? Did you forget about it and moved on? Or are you still regereting the mistakes you've made in the past, and you go on the endless replay to torture yourself subtly, yet constantly?
