There are things that we avoid doing or pursuing because we worry about what others will think. Sometimes we even talk ourselves out of doing something different because it’s not the norm. But when we hold ourselves back from doing new things or pursuing something different, we really hold ourselves back from living a full life.
Life can sometimes feel like a battle. It can feel like you are swimming upstream against the tide, with no relief in sight. And while most of us persevere, despite the odds, we often overlook the reality that being worn out, stressed, and overwhelmed can lead to unhappiness, health problems, and mental and emotional strain.
There are times in a relationship when your partner will struggle. This can be challenging… on both of you. Especially if you’re used to seeing them be strong. If something has unexpectedly has affected them in a way that has caused you concern, it might be time to get involved.
We’ve all wondered, at one time or another, “is this all life has to offer?” Routines become redundant and we find ourselves questioning our purpose. What happened to living a fulfilled and happy life? Are we meant to just study, work, pay bills, and squeeze in just enough time for sleep and a little entertainment?
We all know a woman that oozes a strong sense of self. The one that seems to know exactly who they are. From their family history to the future they’ve mapped out for themselves, they seem sure, confident, and right on track.
We all go through periods in life that we wish we could have skipped right over. Sometimes, we face unexpected setbacks and sometimes we have to face the reality of knowing what we were getting into. It’s important that we don’t let life’s disappointments cripple or steal our ability to be happy.
