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

Defining Kindness

written by OL and edited by MR ©

Many people will say that kindness is a manner which demonstrates itself in proceedings. But what is kindness? It is the quality of being generous, friendly and considerate, to name just a few. Another aspect is that you worry for the feelings of others and that you feel their pain along with them. It is also said that kindness tries to figure out what the situation is and produce a better outcome. Kindness shows empathy and compassion for those who are in pain, and support for those who are attempting to help those who are in need. Being kind is a very important way of giving some significance to our own lives as well as the lives of others who are around us and those that we don’t even know. Being kind also gives us a chance to interact with others better, and also to be a positive force in other people’s lives. Its true source is deep within us, and while some people are naturally kind, it’s something that everyone can develop by applying themselves to learning what it means to be kind and then by actually being kind in different situations.

Beautiful Love Story

Beautiful Love Story

This story has been traveling the internet for a few days now. It is a true story of love between a man and a woman.

“I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I thought maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.

As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.

He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.

Some inspiring things he said;
“I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love”
“I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates”
“People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it.”
“Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, “have I told you that I love you lately?”
Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours

If you are in a relationship and you’d like to make sure that you are doing the right thing by your partner, ask yourself the following questions: Do you feel secure in your relationship?

Thus, there is a great increase in the number of abusive relationships in the recent years. This article explains how not to be the abuser. Continue reading

The love of God keeps you safe but first this.

What we call God is a celestial light that gives rise to the myriad dimensions of heaven that are located inside the holographic fields-upon-fields. Every grain of sand has all the heavens and hells inside it. Continue reading
