Like many of you, I am concerned. I'm a little bit afraid, even. As you probably know, the news has been blowing up recently about the protest of the American Flag and the National Anthem that has been taking place in the NFL. I have personally watched several videos and read a couple articles from … Continue reading Protesting the Flag – The Division of America
We’ve all spent time around people that just kind of drain the life out of you. You know the ones. The manipulators, the guilt-trippers, the ones that make you feel on edge and exhausted.
Long story short, if you don’t want to fall out of love, then just don’t. It’s hard, but it’s worth it. All it takes is everything you have. If you’re not ready for that commitment, you aren’t ready for a real relationship. It’s as simple as that.

Improvement is a huge part of our lives. We have a natural desire to be better than we are, which is why we tend to lean towards being uncomfortable with ourselves.

Trust doesn't mean you're never scared. There will still come times when you're afraid, but you will find a lot of relief from that fear if you choose to give your significant other the benefit of the doubt anyways.
