The “I” in “We”: 4 Ways To Maintain Your Independence In A Relationship

There are too many reasons why people lose themselves in a relationship and most of the time they don’t even realize it’s happening. Soon enough, the honeymoon phase will end or somebody will smack some sense into you and you’ll realize that you’ve become completely dependent on your significant other (S.O.) and the relationship itself.

4 Pregnancy Symptoms That You’ve Never Heard Of

Never in my life has the phrase “whew child” been more useful than it is when describing some of my pregnancy symptoms. From backaches to mood swings, pregnancy has the power to change your body in a gazillion ways and all at once. I didn’t by any means think that it would be a walk in the park (as if walking is even all that easy to do nowadays) but there are some things that the girls left out when talking to the audience about pregnancy.

5 Tips To Help Soothe Your Anxiety

Already late to our destination, I took my time getting into the backseat of my mom’s car. I was about 11-years old and I was on my way to compete in a school spelling bee. I had on an outfit that I wasn’t too keen on (turquoise, khaki and glitter, ugh) and to top it off, I was feeling like complete shit. Nothing new at that time, my mood had been in a reoccurring state of somber for a while. My mother, obviously fed up and confused by it, turned around and with a terrifying look on her face screamed, “What is wrong with you?” I can’t remember what I may have done to instigate my mother’s outburst but I’m sure that typical preadolescent growing pains were a contribution. What I didn’t know was how much anxiety and depression played a part. At the time, I didn’t even know what those words meant. It took me about another 7 years, when things had intensified, to figure it out.

6 Months And Counting…

If you ask me what my fondest memories are I’m always going to think back to the ones from my childhood. There were some bad times, of course. What kid doesn’t pack a bag and threaten to run away from home at least once? I remember the first time that my 6 or 7-year-old self declared that I was leaving due to the injustices of my home. My mother sarcastically encouraged me to go and assisted me by opening the front door. She waited for me to walk out but as I stared outside I saw what looked like a scene out of the movie Jumanji. I swear, I remember seeing a flying dinosaur swoop down past my face and the distance from the front door to the sidewalk looked like it was miles apart. Shooken with fear but still wanting to keep my pride, I backed down and told her that I would leave and go on my journey another day. I sure told her.

If I Knew Then What I Know Now

When a situation occurs that reminds me of one that I’ve been in before, my mind usually goes straight to predicting how said situation will turn out. This is solely to further validate my belief that I was born with prophetic or psychic ability. Also, it grants me another possible chance to tell people that I, indeed, was born with prophetic or psychic ability. *winks*

The second thought that rams its way into my mind is Continue reading…

How Many Likes Did It Take For You To Forget Who You Were?

IMG_2630

My older brother has always been the one to tell me what to expect as I got older. What sort of things I’d experience in relationships, friendships and in life in general were typically his main points of focus. My parents did too but the generational and cultural differences made it difficult to relate to some of their teachings. Now that I am older, their knowledge combined with what I have learned on my own has made a pretty-perfect combo and turned me into the “know it all” that I am today. While my major flaws lie in sometimes stating my opinions condescendingly, I never claim to know everything. However, there is one thing that I do know for sure or have noticed at the very least.
