It’s no secret that it’s important to remove toxic relationships from your life. But that may not be easy depending on the person in question. You may not want to completely remove this person from your life, and it’s important to question why they have suddenly become toxic. Because life situations aren’t always black-and-white, we don’t always know why someone has become toxic, and we can actually do more harm by removing a person who is in desperate need of support and understanding.
After years of constantly being hurt and let down, one typically gives up. Our hearts were not meant to be broken like they so often feel, and in turn, most people turn cold and distance themselves from everyone around them. I did that myself.
Everyone wants to find that special one who leaves a burning spark in their soul and makes them want to become a better human. But there must be signs the universe gives you in order to truly make a soulful impact on your life. Many people believe that when you meet your soulmate you just instantly connect and that's it. But it doesn't end there friends. You have to make sacrifices and changes to your life in order to make a growing relationship work, but that's another tale to tell soon.
The internet is undoubtedly the most incredible invention on the planet. It allows us to research anything at any time, it allows us to connect with people all over the world within milliseconds, and it allows us to share our thoughts and pictures and lives with any number of people all at once.
I grew up with non-stop aggression in my life from home and school, since I went to a private Catholic school that allowed enormous bullying to happen. I can’t stand cowards who can’t cope with bullies, since certainly I can. I was not removed from a hostile environment despite how much I asked to be sent to public school. I also survived a private high school with more bullies there since my freshman year. I was told how to properly kill myself by students who wanted to bully me out of school. I eventually learned how not to be aggressive because of my medication. They were endlessly creative about how I was to be suicidal. When I read about bullycides now, I have to wonder at why the bullies succeeded in getting their victims to kill themselves.
Due to my own observation on social media, I would say the number of international marriages has increased. I would also say that being provided with different methods of communication has made that possible. For example, before all these various platforms to communicate, if you met someone on holiday, the likelihood of maintaining anything was difficult. I mean nobody is willing to spend a crazy amount of money calling long distance that is for sure, which takes away the chance to really get to know someone so far away. We live in a time where people have virtual friends and networks, giving them an endless amount of opportunities to flourish both in career and life. This form of communication has not only expanded our access to each other, but has given people the chance to form unlikely relationships.
Have you ever been in a serious relationship where things seemed perfect? You both confessed your love for one another (or so you thought). You've made plans for your futures together, building strong bonds with each family, etc...
People are flawed, full of good intentions perhaps even when their actions aren't what we hoped for. Or maybe their hearts are callous and they planned for you to hurt from the beginning. Either way, the receiving end of the hurt never feels good. So how do we love when loving hurts?
I have been paid to do some interesting things in my time, some of which I am not very proud of. This is one of those things.
Lack of honesty is one of the biggest reasons people break up. Often, we think of infidelity strictly in terms of an affair, but your partner can also commit emotional infidelity by lying to you. If trust is the foundation of any relationship, then dishonesty is the hammer that cracks it. Sometimes we are able to suspect when our partner is not being truthful, but other times we get completely blindsided. Read up on signs he's not being honest with you so the latter doesn't happen to you.

There is something to be said for the bad boys. Ladies, you know what I’m talking about, and if you don’t, go find one. These guys are brooding and dangerous. They aren’t the star quarterback, but probably his best friend. The underdog. The one who makes the entire class laugh but nobody takes serious. They are the ones who show you passion and heartache. They make you take risks and make you see things the nice boys won’t. They can either make you or break you. Mine broke me.
