Lessons From the End of a Marriage

Your Baggage is Your Problem

It’s always nice when someone offers to carry our bags for us. There’s a relief that comes from shifting that burden; a sense of freedom when the weight is lifted. But when it comes to relationships, your baggage is your problem. Whether you have residual anger that flares when provoked, fear of betrayal or abandonment or irrational overreactions from triggers buried in your past, it is up to you to address them.

No Pining Allowed

It’s natural to miss your ex at times. Perhaps they had traits your new partner lacks or maybe you shared a different connection. Watch those thoughts. If you are yearning for your past, you will miss your present. Whatever was is over. Be where you are.

Power Couple: 10 Traits Men Need To Handle Strong Women

Wonderfully written article! I enjoyed this thoroughly!!! 🙂
I think I shall be handing this to Prince Charming when he arrives…

We are searching for our own universes, trying to find the one who can lead us to unknown paths, because those are the only ones worth taking. We are searching for the remote possibility of our existence having more value than breathing, that there is more to life than simply living. There is a deeper universe within us, and I want you to come find mine.

I want you to invade my mind, read my thoughts and fight the urge to flee, fight the voices telling you this is bound to end in tragedy. We will trace the desires of our past, follow…
