When Your Best Isn’t Good Enough

Important: Click Here to learn how to secretly improve your relationship without the other person knowing.

What happens when you’ve done your best but your best just isn’t good enough for your partner?

Some people won’t accept that you are giving it your best because you don’t do things exactly like they would.  It’s really aggravating when you may not even agree with what needs to be done in the first place, but you give it your all anyway, only to go unnoticed.

The real problem is that your partner is trying to change you and you should never have to change someone to be with them.  If you feel the need to change someone, then you probably shouldn’t be in a relationship. Read more…

When You Think You Do More Than Your Partner

The downfall of any relationship starts to occur when you or your partner begin to feel like you are contributing more to the relationship than the other. Most people become blind to the significance of their partners contribution and stop valuing it.

We become so accustomed to our partners contribution that we treat it as an autonomous contribution rather than an active one. This allows us to ignore our partners core contribution and focus on other things. Sure, taking out the trash, doing dishes, and taking care of the kids are important, but they are not the only areas of responsibility.

Even though one partner may bust their ass, take care of all of the bills, and support everyone in the house, the other person seems to easily forget that they do anything at all. Now the fighting starts as they demand more of their partner in addition to the massive load of responsibility and contributions they already have. Read more…

4 Things You Need To Fix Before You Get Married Again

Things get messy after a divorce no matter how clean you think they are. Before you get married you want to make sure that you’ve completely sealed off and contained the disaster that was your previous marriage. The last thing you want to happen is for things from a previous marriage to pile over into your new one, it adds unnecessary stress and stretches a person thin.

To me that means that everything you were and everything you had in your last marriage, stays in your last marriage, excluding kids, sometimes you want to bring those along with you. Your kids will always be your kids no matter what happens but your spouse can disappear at any given moment. Read more…

It Has Always Been Legal For Same Sex Couples To Marry Since 1791

The definition of marriage as found in almost all state laws was based on the heavy influence of Christian beliefs at the time they were written. In 1791, the Bill of Rights, specifically the separation of church and state, essentially nullified every state law written on the basis of a religion. Unfortunately it was not enforced allowing religious law to rule the definition of marriage for over 200 years.

Since the middle ages governments have issued or required marriage licenses to wed. A historical marriage was recognized between a man and woman with the intent to reproduce or start a family. This was and still is a natural impossibility for same sex couples, however with the ability to adopt or seek in vitro, same sex couples can also start a family. Read more…

On Broken Promises and Ill Intentions

If you’ve ever accused someone for lying or breaking a promise, you may have been wrong to do so. There is a large discrepancy between intentions and reality. Facing the reality of a situation doesn’t mean someone broke their promise or that they lied. People bend to reality, reality does not bend to people. You have a hand in making your reality but so do others around you.

It’s time to accept that things don’t always work out the way as planned. This doesn’t mean someone lied or deceived you, most of the time it simply means they have too many hands involved in their reality.

The way you tell if someone was lying or if they were insincere is to examine their intentions. Has their intentions changed, and if so, was it because of a reality check, or was it because they were lying in the first place. Read more…

Day 1: Put the Past Behind You

Forgive others. This isn’t about right or wrong, it’s about letting go of things and moving forward with your life.

If you find things of the past resurfacing in present arguments, this is a key indicator you haven’t moved on from it. Put it behind you and watch your relationship transform right before your very eyes. Read more…

It’s Called Respect, Not Control

When you forego doing something that might offend or hurt your partner, that is called respect, not control. Respect is a vital component of any relationship, without it, there simply isn’t one.

If you feel your partner is easily hurt or disrespected, it’s your job to find out why. If you don’t take the time to understand their feelings you don’t belong in the relationship. If they bring up something you’ve done to them in the past, don’t discredit it or toss it aside, try to put yourself in their shoes. Try to figure out what you would have done if you were them.

Understanding is another vital component of relationships . If you don’t take the time to understand, your relationship is doomed before it starts.

Justifying or making excuses for your actions that hurt that person will not change whether or not they were hurt, just take responsibility that you did what you did, and try to work toward a solution that benefits both of you. Read more…

How Expectations Kill Relationships

Expectations drown relationships. Failure to meet expectations has ended a large percentage of relationships. The longer the relationship lasts, the more expectations you’ll have. Every additional expectation increases the chances your partner will fail to meet them.

Therefore, the chance of becoming single increases significantly with every new expectation.

It takes a strong person and a lot of focus to not to be so demanding or needy in a relationship. Unfortunately, most people in relationships are not strong people to begin with. They will oftentimes ignore or downplay how needy and dependent they are becoming.

Expectations increase so gradually over time that it’s hard to see the change unless you compare the beginning to the end. Because of how gradual it is, the other person ends up tolerating far more control and neediness than they would have without realizing it. Read more…

3 Ways to Stop the Spread of Rumors

Rumors get spread everyday. Most of them aren’t true, but some are.

I once believed a classmate of mine wrote a letter that contained a bomb threat to our school. I never got a chance to talk to her about it and the next year she just kind of disappeared so I had just assumed it was true.

How could everyone be wrong?

About 15 years later I ran across that friend on facebook and somehow we got to catching up and that very rumor got brought up. She had never wrote the letter or made the threat, she just ended up moving with her parents.

Man did I ever feel like an idiot.

That’s when I realized that the more people that are talking about a rumor, the more likely it is to be wrong because people assume that someone along the line would have validated it, but that’s not what humans do.

I read a story about someone getting beat up in the middle of the street where at least 40 neighbors looked out there window and saw it. About half an hour later the person that was getting beat died. No authorities or help arrived till some hours later when someone walking by noticed a dead person in the street. Read more…
