Well, the truth of the matter is that you don’t necessarily owe anything to anyone. The fact that you are so willing to put other people’s needs before your own is a very wonderful quality to have, however, if you find yourself being the one who ends up with nothing in...

No one truly wants to admit when they are dealing with someone who is mentally unstable such as a sociopath. Especially when that person is someone they love.

Unfortunately, sometimes this means that we have to leave these people in order for them to truly learn what they are doing to harm society in the first place. If...

Happiness can be a complex, hard-to-figure-out emotion. It’s something we all want for ourselves, yet so often we find ourselves struggling to find it. When I was in high school, I was a really happy kid. In college, I wasn’t as happy, but I was okay. After college, I was depressed and hating life–so much so, that I vowed if I ever found happiness again, I would never let go of it.

Self-respect entails a variety of simple things that we are all capable of possessing. However, sometimes we lose focus of what it means to have self-respect for ourselves by altering our personalities to fit the mold that society has claimed to be “perfect.” Well, let me be the first to say that there is no such thing as perfect in this world, not even humans are able to be absolutely perfect.

Life is hard as it is just by existing in general and the fact that some of us feel the need to uphold highly unrealistic expectations on each other is ludicrous. Some of us feel that perfection actually does exist out there somewhere in the world, however, we are just unlucky when it comes to finding it. This is not how things work, expecting everyone to be perfect within your image is pure insanity and should never be forced upon others as if that was the only way to truly exist in this world. It’s...

Relationships require a lot of communication and sometimes we would rather do things our own way instead of working with our partner on figuring out how to make things work. Of course, there is a pretty distinct difference between wanting things a certain way and being an absolute control freak. If you’ve noticed that your partner comes off as more controlling than concerned with your opinion/ideas then it could mean that they are ruining your relationship with them. People who are controlling...

While it can be hard to admit, all of us have, at one point or another, acted like a total crazy person. Whether it be in a relationship with a friend or a partner, sometimes the things that we hate finding in others, are the very same things we dislike about ourselves. Either way, toxic people are attracted to certain behaviors and emotions. If you’re want to avoid them, do your best to not do any of these five things: Taking things way too personally It’s easy to get caught up in...

Have you ever noticed the unmistakable presence of a person with high integrity? It’s as if the air about them is inherently attractive. What’s great is that you can achieve this same effect for yourself if you so desire to. Being a person of integrity isn’t easy, but it’s something that everyone should strive for. It requires honesty, sincerity, and a strong sense of self. These people are the role models we look up to. They’re our most trusted companions, lovers,...

When it comes to being in love, we are some of the most impulsive beings in the entire universe. Love is such a strong emotion that we are all able to feel and yet there are sometimes where we feel it more than others. People who find themselves in long lasting relationship usually find themselves in a daydream what feels like and they don’t ever want that feeling to fade away from them or their significant other. Happiness is a vague idea in general for the majority of us, so when two people...
