Ah, alone time. My favorite kind of time. Don't get me wrong, I love spending time with my friends, but at the end of the day I also love being home alone with my cat. It's nice to know that you can do what you wan't without being constantly judged for it (well, I'm sure my cat is judging me, but cats are just generally judge-y anyway).
When a relationship isn't the relationship you should be in, what are the warning signs that pile up? Well, most of the time, they're small things that maybe you don't notice until they've gotten huge. And then maybe, sometimes, they're as huge and awful as being sick and your partner literally refusing to help you.
Life will always through us curveballs. You can prepare and prepare and prepare to a fault but things will still go awry. It's how you handle yourself in those moments that matter. We must have a mantra, a count to ten mini-break, whatever can get you over the hurdle that the situation you planned meticulously has blown up in your face. But you can be saved.
Say that again and it'll be the last thing you say!
There are just some words that when grouped together can set my blood aflame! When giving important life advice or trying to soothe the emotions of others or stressful situations, banal syllables are not the way. We should try to give more than just the menial "it'll be ok," or "life has a way of working out" rote responses. We all have go-to responses but often we need to find or hear something better.
