“The scars from mental cruelty can be as deep and long-lasting as wounds from punches or slaps but are often not as obvious. In fact, even among women who have experienced violence from a partner, half or more report that the man’s emotional abuse is what is causing them the greatest harm,” wrote Lundy Bancroft in Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men. Emotional abuse is an insidious thing. It ruins the lives of men and women alike, and because it is not physical...

Many people find themselves saying “I’m sorry” for things that should never in a million years require an apology – such as declining plans or asking for help. Women are especially guilty of this. How often do you witness a woman apologizing for speaking, feeling, or basically just daring to exist? When we apologize for something like having a preference, voicing an opinion, or even having an allergy, we are telling ourselves and the world that who we are is not okay. This can be damaging...

Introverted people are special, unique, and deeply valuable. Unfortunately, in a world that demands extroversion, many introvert fail to recognize their own worth. They often push themselves to be more social than they are comfortable with and apologize for their true nature. This is not only detrimental to an introvert’s self-image, but can leave them feeling depleted and confused about who they are. Introversion needs to be embraced and celebrated, rather than discouraged. HERE ARE FIVE WAYS...

In the early days, relationships are passionate and thrilling, and the sparks come easily. With time, however, they can become weathered by the world around us. As we grow up, we accumulate responsibilities that can drain our energy and leave us less time for the pursuit of magic and adventure. Even the strongest and most loving partnerships can sometimes start to feel disconnected. So – how do you keep your bond strong through the rigors of life, how do you keep your relationship connected? HERE...

It’s easy to assume that the reason you’re single is because you’re not hot enough, your boobs are too small or you’re not thin enough. Frankly, that’s all bullshit. Sure, we men do love boobs, but honestly, it’s more of a binary relationship – we’re happy with anything. It might seem like hot girls have dudes fawning over them to no end, but the reality is that there are things we care about way more than how you look. In fact, these things will have guys falling over you way...

I saw a funny thing today on Facebook which said, “Men: If you ever wanna know what a woman’s mind feels like, imagine a browser with 2,857 tabs open. All. The. Time.” And while that crazy tendency to think, imagine, create, obsess, worry over a thousand things all at the same time can be true at many times of any given day in my own life, women are, I believe, actually quite simple to please at heart. Ultimately, each of us are just another human being “wanting to know that I am safe,...

Letting loved ones go is probably one of the hardest adversities and experiences that a human being can go through, especially when those people choose to be no longer in your life for whatever reason. Love in general is a very vicious emotion that is complicated, simple, warm, confusing, hurtful, you get the idea. So, as humans, we owe it to ourselves to learn how to cope and move forward from these horrible feelings/despair. Easier said than done, we all know this. Heartbreak teaches us a very...

Being single is not exactly the worst thing on the planet. You have a lot more potential with yourself, and the sky is basically the limit as to how far you can go. While a majority of us think that being in a relationship is something you simply just have to have, this is not always the case. You do not need another being to be the primary source of your entertainment, joy, and well-being. Being single teaches you very important life lessons that are rough, but more than worth it. Alone Time Having...

While many desire a strong, capable and loyal partner, not everyone knows how to hold on to them once found. The rules for being with a strong character or a more meek personality are basically the same. They prioritize things differently and will react differently to various affronts. Be prepared for some potentially emotional and verbal skirmishes, as any tenacious and confident lover won’t hesitate to fight when they feel it justified. If you are in a relationship with a powerful person,...
