5 Tips to Keep the Communication Going in a Relationship




When it comes to being in a relationship, open and honest communication is very important to keep the relationship healthy and going strong. If you live together but lie to your partner every chance you get or ignore him or her, disaster is heading your way. Everyone wants to be in a healthy and strong relationship, so remember, if you want to keep yours going, keep the following tips in mind.

1 – Find the Right Time


Is something bothering you and you need to let your partner know about it? If you have something nagging at you constantly and need to get it off your chest to your partner, you should find the right time to talk first. This means making sure either of you are not busy or in a hurry. You also want to make sure either of you are distracted by anything else so as to be able to sit down and talk to each other without having anything stopping you from talking and without having anything stopping them from listening. If you have to schedule a time to talk to them, this would be better to do than to have to rush around and not get the results you are looking for.


2 – Talk Face-to-Face


If you have something serious to discuss with your partner, you will be better off doing so face-to-face rather than on the phone or in a text. Face-to-face is better for you both so you can both see each other’s honest reaction. Not only this, but having a serious discussion through email or by text on the phone could lead to a misunderstanding because one of you, or even both of you, could misunderstand what the other is trying to say.


3 – Avoid Attacking Your Partner


When you have something you want to say to your partner, and you get into an argument, avoid attacking your partner. You don’t want this to happen because you could unintentionally hurt your partner and they can put you in jail. They could also end up really hurt too and no one wants this to happen


4 – Stay Honest


Remaining honest with your partner during your conversation is always best. No one likes to be lied to. Think about it; you don’t like to be lied to so why would you want to put anyone else through that? Always stay honest with him or her and the relationship will keep going strong.


5 – Try the 48-Hour Rule


If you and your partner get into an argument and they have made you mad or the other way around, you should speak up. However, you can and should wait for at least 48-hours to allow it to blow over. If you are still upset after the 48-hours are up, then you should speak up and let them know how you feel. The waiting period can allow you both to cool off and get over it without the argument escalating into something dangerous for either of you.


Using the tips above will allow you to grow your relationship into something strong and beautiful.

About me, for example, I could stop feeding myself, I will never be as slim as Kendall Jenner or Cindy Crawford. Despite doing sport everyday, diets and all my desires, I will stay curvy. With strong breast, wide inches, big bottom. Because, that’s what I am. I am a simple curvy woman.

So, why does the nowadays society force people to be twins ? Whereas advertisements and brands tell you to stay yourself. Then, why are androgyne, flat and almost dead women the only models ? A woman is normally supposed to be shiny and healthy. Finally, why do you refuse your body as it is, tall or small ? Slim or curvy ? You are unique. You are yourself. So, be proud of your body ! And love yourself.

I know, it is an easy speech. But, nothing would change your bones, your size and your morphology. Miracles doesn’t exist, magical operations neither. Only your mind, your brain, can make you accept who you really are.

Time will be your friend: days, months, years… However, you will be fine. You can manage it. For some of you, you need to find open-minded people. For others, living without any judgement. Don’t let you break by “perfect” pictures. Because, nobody is perfect. You just have to live happily with yourself.

5 Tips to Make a Long Distance Relationship Work




long distance relationship

Being in a long distance relationship may be hard for you both. Your family and friends may discourage you from being in one because they are afraid you will be hurt in the end. Although, you may feel lonely at times if you are in a long distance relationship, think of how much sweeter everything that closer distance relationships take for granted will be for you both. Things like holding hands, kissing, hugging, and just seeing each other after being apart for so long. Here are a few tips to make your long distance relationship work.


1 – Avoid Too Much Communication


Although you do want to talk to each other as often as you want, you shouldn’t communicate too much. The reason for this is because if you call your long distance partner too much throughout the day and night, you will look to them as you are too needy and possessive. The same goes for them calling you too much throughout the day, they will start to think of you as too needy and possessive. Coming off as too needy and possessive can end a relationship as fast as it even started. Try talking several times per week and that is it. This will give you something to look forward to anyway.


2 – Think of the Relationship as a Test


You can view your long distance relationship in a positive way instead of a bad way by thinking of it being a test for you both. Being in a long distance relationship can be hard and this is why many of them don’t last. However, viewing it as a test for you both to see how strong willed the two of you are is a good way to think of it.


3 – Set Some Ground Rules


By setting some ground rules from the beginning of the relationship, you will be managing your expectations of what you expect from the relationship. If you expect them to not date anyone else while the two of you are apart, make this clear in the beginning. This way they can decide if they want to move forward with the long distance relationship.


4 – Talk Dirty to Each Other


When you call them or they call you, why not talk a little sexy to them? This can also build up the momentum and make you both go crazy for seeing each other. Once you talk dirty to them and they do the same for you, you won’t be able to be apart for one more minute without going crazy.


5 – Do Things Together Virtually


This means when you are playing a game, ask them to play it with you online. When you are doing something fun, have them do the same thing at the same time. By doing this, you will both be laughing and having a blast “together” and won’t be able to wait much longer until you see each other again.


Using the tips above will help you keep your long distance relationship going strong for as long as you both decide to keep it going.

4 Secrets on How to Learn to Love Yourself




love yourself

When it comes to being in relationships with other people, you first need to learn to love yourself before you can love anyone else or be loved by anyone else. Too many times, we look in our reflection in the mirror and see our flaws before our beauty. You need to learn to turn that thinking around and see your beauty before your flaws. Just like how a mother loves her children unconditionally no matter what they look like and no matter what they do in their lives,. We too need to learn how to do this with ourselves without reservation. Here are some ways you can learn to love yourself so that you can love others and be loved too.


1 – Make Contact With Your Inner Self


Making contact with your inner self first means to pay more attention to your self-care. This can be done through meditation, self-reflection, contemplation, and experiencing a few minutes of quiet time for yourself every day. Once you learn how to do these things, you will be able to get in touch with your inner-self, learning to appreciate yourself and enjoy yourself more.


2 – Being Honest With Yourself Enough to Face Your Inner Obstacles and Resistance


One thing you need to do at one point in your life is to face your inner obstacles, or inner demons as they say, and face the resistance you have against yourself. You can do this by really being honest with yourself and facing your past by coming to terms with that past. Once you come to terms and be honest with yourself about the stress and anxiety from  your past, you can learn to release that stress and anxiety once and for all. Coming to terms with it is the first part of allowing it to be released. Let the releasing begin for yourself.


3 – Dealing With Your Past Wounds


If you have ever been really hurt by someone from your past, you know what it means to deal with those past wounds. Although you may not have dealt with those old wounds yet or have not forgiven the people in your past yet, maybe the time is now. If you find yourself stuck with old resentments, scars, and pain that someone you used to love has caused you, it is time to forgive them and let it go. Holding on to these old wounds will just eat you up inside and life will be bad for you now and in the future.


4 – Accept the Place Your Life is at Now


There are some things you can’t change in your life. For example, if you have always wanted children but you have a medical condition that causes infertility, instead of feeling sorry for yourself, knowing you can’t change it and that you gave it your best shot at trying, let it go and accept where you are now in your life. Be happy with what you have and don’t worry about what you don’t have. Maybe you weren’t meant to have children after all. If you have stepchildren, be thankful for them and accept everything in your life for what it is now. Doing this will make you a happy person and will help you to learn to love yourself.


Once you have done these things, you will be in a place where you can finally love yourself, love others, and be loved by others all unconditionally.

Why is Sexual Health so Important?




sexual health

When it comes to trying to determine a definition of sexual health, it can be a hard thing to do. The reason for this is because every person is different and their sexual health is just as different as they are. Although some people believe that being sexually healthy means staying clean from sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancy, these factors are not the only things that keep a person from being and staying sexually healthy. There are more ways to stay healthy sexually.


However, preventing sexual diseases and preventing pregnancies are good ways to stay sexually healthy. It is worth mentioning this more than once to keep people from getting sexual diseases and preventing young teens from getting pregnant.


So, Just What is Sexual Health?


According to the American Sexual Health Association, sexual health is embracing your sexuality throughout your life. It also means enjoying your sexuality throughout your life. However, there is more to it than just that. ASHA says that sexual health also means:


  • To understand and keep in mind that sex is a natural part of life and there is more to sex than just sexual behavior.
  • Respecting and realizing that we all share the same sexual rights.
  • Having the access you need for sexual education, sexual health, and sexual care.
  • Making the effort to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STDs but knowing how to get the treatment and care you need if they do happen.
  • Being able to enjoy sex and intimacy when you want to.
  • The ability to speak up about your sexual health with your partner(s) and health care providers.


Although being sexually healthy means to have safe sex to prevent diseases and pregnancy, you also need to remain positive and keep all of the above in mind when thinking about your sexual health.


It is important to understand that you should be able to speak up about your thoughts and feelings about your sexual health, desires, and the intimacy you share with your partner(s). It is also a good idea to ensure you speak to your doctor about how you feel about your sexual health.


What if I don’t Want Sex?


Having sex with your partner(s) is a natural part of life and everyone desires it at one or more times in their lives. Some people, more than others. However, if you don’t want sex, you need to speak to your doctor to determine the problem causing this. You are a normal person, don’t think you aren’t because you are not the only one that goes through the problem of not having the desire to have sex. However, something is causing this in your life. It could be a trauma that happened in your life such as a sexual assault.


If you don’t want sex very often or not at all, it could also be the medication you are on. Many different medications, prescribed or not, can cause loss of libido. If this is the case, your doctor will help you find a solution to your problem.


Speak to your partner too. Let them know there is something wrong and you are going to get the help you need to ensure you will be able to desire sex again. Speak up as much as you can. No one can read your mind!

Make sure there are no TVs, or other electronics and tech gadgets allowed in the bedroom during alone time together, to distract either of you.

Enjoy and Perfect the Quickie

How to Improve Yourself to Enhance Your Relationships




improve yourself

They say that loving yourself can improve your relationships. However, you need to know self-worth before you can give worth to others. There are ways you can know that you love yourself besides saying it to yourself every day. Here are some tips on how to improve yourself to improve your relationships.


Approve of Yourself


Don’t keep seeking approval from others. They will approve of what you are doing at first and won’t mind it at first either but after a while, they will start getting tired of having to approve of everything you do just to make you happy. You need to approve of yourself and the things you do on your own before you can make anyone else happy to be around you.


Give to Others


You don’t want to just take for yourself and not share what you take with others. Not only giving to others makes them happy but it will make you happy because they are happy. And, you can’t truly be happy with yourself unless you make others happy as well.


Reach Your Own Goals


When wanting to improve your relationships with other people, you want to reach the goals you set for yourself. By doing this, you are making them happy for you, for themselves, and they will be proud to be in a relationship with you.


Become Fit and Stay Fit and Healthy


You can do this by exercising on a daily basis and eating the right kinds of foods. The only way to improve your relationships is if they see that you are trying to improve yourself too in a healthy way. Don’t ever skip the exercises no matter how you feel because exercising makes you feel better anyway. Don’t skip meals because this will make you feel worse. You will also want to get a good night’s sleep too. Go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning.

Keep Yourself Clean on a Daily Basis


This means practicing proper hygiene. Get in the show every morning or every night, brush your teeth three times a day and in between meals, and keep your face and hair clean. Once those who you are in a relationship with see that you are keeping yourself up every day, they will want to be around you more.


Be Creative


Make something special for that special someone in your life. Be creative with it and make them something, not just from your heart, but something they will absolutely love. Being creative with what you made for them will also make them want to be around you more.


Be Aware of Yourself


Be aware of who you are and what you mean to the people in your life. Know that they love you for who you are and they always will. Always know your own worth and they will want to be around you more for this.


Once you improve yourself personally, you will definitely improve the close relationships you are in.
