Setting Boundaries With Friends

Have you ever had a friend that no matter what you told her, she always came up with a better way to do the thing that you want to do? Or she has a different option about what you should buy to what you have said you’re about to buy? Or she has another choice about where to take your life which is opposite to the direction that you want for your life? Nothing that you ever say seems to be right for you according to her….nothing ever satisfies her – she always knows better than you do. Abuse doesn’t only occur in relationships, it occurs in friendships too. Continue reading

Let Me Be Myself

Let Me be Myself

A short story about saving yourself.

Lying on sofa, eyes on the roof, I looked back on my life. Am I what I meant to be? A daughter, sister, mother and a wife or simply a necessity needed to complete the cycle of life? Do I stand somewhere? Or is my sigh of grief not heard by anybody else, not even God? Please, let me be myself! Continue reading

Learning to be Assertive

“I want something from you, and if you don’t just automatically say yes or give it to me, then you’re in trouble!” Does that scenario sound familiar to you?

Forgiveness in Marriage

written by AB, editor MR

Is your spouse careless and inconsiderate? Does he or she hurt your feelings by doing or saying anything that you do not like? Due to the fact that women are naturally nurturing and caring, men need to learn how to become just as caring because naturally they aren’t usually that way. Unfortunately, because it requires a rather large effort to learn, they often don’t bother to do so. Continue reading

Resolving Conflict in a Relationship

Resolving Conflict

Communication is the key for a healthy relationship. When two people in a relationship communicate well, they understand each other in a good way which makes the relationship healthier and stronger. If you have been resolving conflict, then you have the ability to develop a healthy and mature relationship successfully. Actually, what is conflict? Well, when we say there is a conflict in a relationship, it means a verbal disagreement and arguments between the two partners. Conflict occurs whenever both partners disagree over their perceptions, expectations, ideas, emotions, intentions and motivations. Continue reading

Why Men Love Bitches

The title of Sherry Argov’s book isn’t referring to a woman who is constantly in someone’s face. It’s about women who have enough value and respect for themselves to not fall into the trap of being their partner’s doormat. I would highly recommend that all women read this book if they haven’t ready. It definitely helps you realise why all of your relationships seem to be relationshits. Men will only walk all over women who don’t act strong. If you are weak in any way, then you can expect to be treated like a doormat.

Here are 100 attraction principles that are taken from Sherry’s book: Continue reading

Five ways to say NO!

Five Ways to Say NO!

There are Five Ways to Say No! Let’s look at how to go about that. The ultimate best way to say no is prior to going on a date, to tell your date that you have no intentions of sleeping with him at the end of the evening. If he’s not happy with that, he’ll tell you not to bother. Good. It saves you from having to fend him off when he tries to impose himself on you later in the evening.

However, even though you may told your date that you’re not going to sleep with him until you know for sure that you’re going to have a committed relationship, he may still try to seduce you into sleeping with him. So this is how to handle the situation when you’ve got a problem on your hands. Continue reading

Recognising Psychological Abuse

Psychological abuse

The 21st century has opened up more information that women can draw upon due to the printing press, the Internet and the media (although, take a lot of what is presented to you on the television with a grain of salt). This means that women are much more aware that they can have a bigger influence than they had in the past. Due to the Feminist movement of the sixties, Western women have more choices available to them, which for some is a good thing and for others perhaps not. The Church has decreased in influence, which is beneficial because the controlling ways of religion are gone, however, the good influences are gone as well….. which isn’t necessarily a good thing. Humans still need some guidelines as to how to live in a decent manner, so the loss of these teachings has had a negative effect upon society and is evident in the behaviour of people today.
