If you're reading this story, you have either started dating or you are already in a relationship and a little unsettled. Whether it is a congratulation or an "oh crap! what have I done" I'm here to help you fix that issue.
Love is a lot of things. Love can be a light, that makes you get butterflies in your stomach. It can make you smile the moment you wake up to when you fall back asleep and it makes you think positive about anything. Love can also be a darkness, that gets in your mind and eats at you. It can make you go mad with tears to the point where icecream and chocolate is just not enough. Love is confusing, but it can take a lot of turns.
A common name, Suzannah Dacre, kept appearing online when people were asking for help in really tough times - whether job hunting, needing a home urgently, or wanting to improve themselves, or their business - so we tracked her down to see what all the fuss was about.
Now I know what you’re thinking:
“Karma, what does Mango Cheese Cake and Ludacris have to do with abusive men?”
Well let me tell ya, those two are what kept me from going back to him.
Every type of relationship will experience issues and pressures at some point in time. Whether it be arguments, problems with intimacy or worries over money.
I was only 14 when I had met that man, and little did I know what I had signed up for. The man that changed my life in so many ways. The man who stole my happiness, ripped my sweet smile off my face, and tore my innocent heart to pieces. Get ready to come along with me on a story so emotional, you’ll be dying to hear more.
Okay, guys here is a little friendly advice. Women actually like gentlemen. So, opening doors and pulling out chairs for them to sit is one thing. I am talking about the works. Like waking her up with breakfast or when you're around your buddies and she looks kinda lost pull her close and just give her a little wink for encouragement. Tell her she is beautiful at least once a day. Let her know you really care. Offer to help with the dishes. Take her out on a Tuesday just because. Give her hugs and spoil her with kisses and affection.
After 5 years of dealing with people who always wanted something from me, I finally booted the toxic people in my life. I love to help people, atleast, I did. Although, it's hard to help the right person when you dont know their true intention until the end. Now, I stick to me, my fiance and my children mostly.
I have recently become OBSESSED with the amazing researcher, author and keynote speaker, Brene Brown. For those of you who are not hip to her and her work yet, get on board NOW! For those of you who are familiar, you know what it is like to be impacted by her insight.
Let me get all the facts out there first - so you don't feel 'jaded' or 'tricked' when you read this whole thing.
There are no books out there that will truly tell YOU how to handle YOUR relationship. You'll find more luck perusing the internet feeds from a standpoint of relationship advice, and probably find them more current than any book you'd be recommended to. And, to compare your relationship to others is probably not the best action to take, but it's one that makes sense when you start thinking yours is in trouble or shaky or whatever other words "fits" the scenario for you. It's possibly even all a play on words or maybe just a diatribe making the author feel better at the moment they wrote it.
In this day in age, it's easy to loose yourself. With so many things changing, new technology, pandemics, hunger, homelessness, etc. I remember a time when things were simpler. When you could ride a bike without worrying about getting kidnapped, no cell phones, dial up internet, TV's that had huge antennas, no gaming consoles. All you had was you. You played in the yard with whatever you had available, you read books, you listened to CD's, you watched movies on VHS tapes, but most of all you talked. When did we loose that? When did verbal communication disappear? I honestly miss those days. I miss sitting at the dinner table, TV off, just eating and talking, no matter what it was about. Things have definitely changed a lot. You can't go to a restaurant without seeing literally everyone on their cell phones. We've become lost. Lost to the real world, we've become numb. The things that should bother us don't. Talking is a foreign concept. You have a problem, you post it on Facebook OR Instagram. You did something amazing (or what you thought was amazing), you post it on Facebook OR Instagram. Nobody calls each other to tell them the good or bad. Honestly, those were the best days of my life, just talking, communicating. I guess it's just easier now for people to communicate through social media. No matter what they are feeling, they show it through an emoji, a picture, a song, a text. Don't get me wrong I've fallen into that too. I've texted people when there was an issue, I've posted a story when something was bothering me. Times are just changing.
