First Steps To Handle Abusive Relationships
A Relationship is a very valuable aspect in our life. It must be unique and something to be enjoyed by everyone. We all dream of having a very healthy relationship especially with our friends, family members and loved ones.
It is a relationship wherein we enjoy each others company. We do things together like watching a basketball game or sometimes with the company of some friends. We are honest about our feelings with each other. There is mutual respect
We should be willing to forgive just as much as we want to be forgiven.

Some of us are blessed with good friends. But as it happens, these friendships are taken for granted in some cases and not valued. It is similar to a case of two couples. Say one has no child even after many years of marriage and the other has many children, more than they can manage. What do you think?

How many times have you said, “I didn’t have a choice?” This is a phrase that is uttered by many to justify their behavior or complain about their life circumstances. Surely, we can continue to believe there are no choices, but it is my belief that kind of thinking is what greatly contributes to our frustration and limits the strength and amount of personal power we experience.
Whenever you are in a situation where you believe there is “no choice”, remember that there are

If you need some relationship problem advice, let’s take a look at what the causes of your relationship distress may be. Problems in a relationship may start out as minor but if they do not get dealt with in a timely manner then someone’s feelings get hurt and they can balloon into a three headed monster and end up being the death of the relationship.
This does not have to be the case. In my opinion the three biggest relationship problems are: Lack of communication, money, and not spending
You are single, bored and you just have nothing to do. It is another miserable day like the day before. You need someone to talk to and you are turning on the computer, browsing some… dating sites. There are so many people… singles, like you are. What should you ask from them? Can they change your life for better? The answer to the last question is up to you. Would you let a person you have met online to change your life? Are you willing to do this? Do you trust someone you have met this way?
Rebound Relationships-Sometimes Hard To Spot
Wow, rebound relationships. I can’t think of many other situations that can do so much damage but feel so good. Nothing feels better than starting to feel alive again after a failed relationship. But, the problem is that often these new found feelings aren’t that “real”.
Most of us have been in rebound relationships at some point in our lives. Whether it was us who was doing the rebounding or our partner, we know that these types
Infidelity is definitely not a new issue for couples today. Unfaithfulness seems to be a major problem in many relationships in todays society, as it has always been in the history of romance.
The first step any couple must take in recovering from infidelity is to determine if the relationship should be or can be salvaged. The following are seven critical questions you need to ask yourself and your partner to know if your relationship can survive.
1.) Is the situation isolated, or is it a pattern.
One of the challenges of even the strongest long-term relationship is the difficulty in keeping things fresh and new. We are creatures of habit, developing routines that work for us without our having to think about it. It allows us to move through fast-paced lives without having to make every little decision on a daily basis. We don’t want to stop and think about which sock to put on first, which way to drive to work, what kind of gas to put in our car, how to stack the dishwasher or fold our clothes.
I have discovered five major relationship killers:
Most people enter a relationship with a deep fear of rejection, and this fear motivates various forms of controlling behavior. Controlling behavior falls into two major categories overt control and covert control.
Overt control includes many forms of attack, such as blaming anger, rage, violence, judgment, criticism and ridicule.
Covert control includes compliance, enabling, withdrawal, defending, explaining,
No relationship is equal give and take. In every relationship, both the partners make adjustments to make the relationship a success. Both give up many choices in life and try to contribute for the continuation of the relationship. Sacrifices are always called for in a healthy relationship. The relationship thrives on them. When we sacrifice we feel good because we feel worthy. Having given up something always makes us feel good.
It can also make us feel bad, if it goes on from one side and the other
The words, I’m sorry can get us out of trouble when we’ve done something wrong or hurt someone we care about but the key to a good apology is really meaning it and convincing the other person that you are truly remorseful. Apologizing just for the sake of keeping the peace is not an effective way to apologize. In doing so the recipient of the apology will most likely see through you and realize that your apology is insincere. A sincere and well timed apology, however, will help to mend the relationship
Secret Relationships – Fun Or Disaster
Secret relationships seems to offer mystery and appeal at first. But are they really all they’re cracked up to be? There are two types of these kings of relationships: those that are secret to your current spouse or partner, and those that are secret to others in your life because you are not currently in a “public” relationship.
The reasons for keeping a relationship secret when you are already with someone are obvious. This might
For most people, sex is an important part of a relationship. It is something that is often gradually worked up to. However, it is still there nonetheless. Sexual desire is a paramount part of falling in love. Sex is a way of expressing our love for someone else. In the past, sex had been a sacred part of any relationship. It was not something that was casual or occurred freely. In our society today, sex is no longer sacred and special. People just freely have sex and there is no love or feelings involved
