Recently, there has been an upsurge in the campaign against abusive relationships. Despite the warcry against women staying in abusive relationships, some of them still choose to stay. I've really pondered and asked myself why some women choose to remain under such circumstances. Here are possible answers to the question on my mind:
The world has become so complex today that to actually find a partner who doesn’t cheat is becoming increasingly tougher by the day. Truthfully, no one goes into a relationship with a guy/girl who would cheat on them. For example, 70% of the ladies I speak to, tell me that their greatest turn off in a relationship is a guy who cheats. Now do not get me wrong, I’m in no way implying that its only guys that cheat, ‘cos we all know that both guys and girls cheat alike. However, it’s really not easy to spot a cheater, as there’s no sure-fire way to know who would and would not cheat/. Relationships vary and people have several reasons why they cheat.
Whether you realize it or not, people who refuse to grow with you simply can't go with you. So often we get so caught up in our emotions that we seem to think that just because someone has been by our side for years that we are entitled to take them with us to each proceeding level of our lives.

My life went from less busy to very busy real quick, I couldn’t even keep up. But am here now.
If you are done from university, the questions you start to get more than anything else is “when are you getting married” or “who is the guy” and questions in that regard. Also this period, I have had the highest number of people I know getting engaged and am asking “is this in my neighbourhood and am just oblivious.” And it made me think about my single season and how much I am doing with it and realizing more about myself.
People are more interested in dating other people that they have not even dated themselves yet. The single season is a period for you to discover more about yourself, invest in your future. If you love to sew, find a sewing class and…

Life may be not what you planned. Actually if we’re honest when is it ever? There are times in our lives where we have a plan and then we turn around just to see that the plan is completely taken out, there’s 15 sub plots, the person you can’t stand is coming over, and the list goes on.
What do we do when life throws curve balls? We could just sit and pout and go to the “woe is me” phase. Sure, you may have perfect reasoning and justification to go into the depth of self pity, but what is that going to do in the long run?
So many times a week I could just let my emotions get ahold of me and just curl up in my bed and not come out. But alas, the life of adulthood does not allow for that. I have work, friends, a…

he Living Room is probably the first part of an interior that you encounter, when entering a house. The living room accomodates a plethora of activities which include entertainment, relaxation, TV viewing, inter alia.

Well, you know what they say: ‘Whatever has an advantage also has a disadvantage’? Pretence, as fine an art as it is, isn’t any different. Sometimes you’re not so sure something will work.

Our friendships pick us up, carry us further, and come from some of the most unlikely sources . In order to get the most out of our friendships, there are certain types of friends we should have in our lives to round out our social circles.
Maybe it’s because I hate being wrong. Maybe it’s the pain of humility – though it isn’t actually humiliating. Maybe it’s the lack of self-control I have over my attitude in the first place that frustrates me. I would admit, yes, actually, it is all of these things. I hate apologizing for all of these reasons. When I need to apologize, I can easily think of even more reasons I hate it and even justify why I can’t or shouldn’t do so just yet. But, I’ve done it, and I’ll do it again. When I know I need to apologize, these are the things I try to keep in mind

Now, it seems quite ironical that trust should be central to such a concept as pretence because the two seem to harbour mutual animosity. Im sure, however, that even you reading this would, at one time or the other, have dealt in pretence, prevarication, or even outright lying to someone just cause you knew they trusted you enough to hang on to your every word. Thus, I dont need to remind you that the trust they had in you was the very reason you got away with that act.
I have met a lot of stupid people, but none worse than those who either don’t know how to conceal their knowledge and emotions or haven’t learnt how to flaunt it at the right time. These two groups of people are, to me, some of the worst human beings on the circle of the earth. Here’s the reason
