Relationships are a beautiful thing.
And having healthy relationships makes life that much more enjoyable. However, they can also be quite complex - especially romantic ones.👩❤💋👨
Many factors need to work together in order for any relationship to work - time, place, as well as more personal ones that differ according to each individual.
I get asked a lot of questions about relationships; so I decided to dedicate this month's vlog to answering them, as well as sharing tips I have found to be useful when preparing for a relationship.
Although this vlog is aimed at single women, I believe those already in a relationship can relate to it as well.
Either way, I hope you all find this information helpful.😉😊
I remember the day I decided to start this blog like it was yesterday. 😊
Before that, I'd been running another blog with two of my friends for a while. However, after some time we realized that we were each interested in a different field of writing, and decided to go our separate ways - so to speak - and each focus on our individual fields.
It took a while after that for the "Debz Meets World" concept to form in my head and become what it is today; in fact, it was only about a month before I launched my website that I decided on a name for it...
My brother is the biggest advocate for relationships that I know.
He's always going on about all the different things he's learnt through the relationships he's been in - both about himself and about life in general. He's constantly advising me to get into a relationship, because he believes that that's the best way for me to learn things about myself that I wouldn't learn otherwise. You see, according to him, being in a relationship is like having a second set of eyes, eyes that see you differently from the way you see yourself; and notice different things about you from the things you know notice about yourself.
I understand where he's coming from, and I believe that what he's saying is true. However, after a recent conversation with my sister, I'm not entirely convinced that being in a relationship is the only way to learn and grow...
A while ago I had a disagreement with a friend that completely changed my life.
No, I'm not exaggerating - it did.
Funnily enough, I can't remember exactly what we disagreed about now, lol, but at the time, I was so mad at her that everything she did after our disagreement seemed to annoy me; even the sound of her breathing was getting on my nerves. 😠
As I do when I'm upset with someone, I gave her the silent treatment - which I usually opt for out of fear of saying something scathing that I might regret later. I eventually couldn't keep it to myself, seeing as I had to be around her more than I would've liked to, so I decided to pray about it. After sharing with God my side of the story, I sat back and waited for His response, almost certain that He'd take my side in the matter.
So you can imagine my surprise when He told me that I was the one at fault! 😨
I find it easier and more effective to write down how I feel rather than to say it.
