When you meet a kindred spirit, you will experience a rare connection. Similar interests and standards will be a few of the indicators. I’ve met a few people who’ve felt like kindred spirits to me. It was strange in a way at first because the connection was strong, so strong it was hard to believe. Have I been wrong about some of these people? I think so, but not all of them. In fact, most of them were platonic relationships and even groups of people.
Life teaches us so many things, good and bad. Winnie the Pooh Friends provide some of the wisest of these life lessons. As a child, I watched Winnie the Pooh Friends, a cartoon from 1924. I marveled at the story and various characters. In those times, it was basically entertaining to a bored little girl. Now, I look at the stories and realize they mirror so many things in life. Take Eeyore, for instance, his sadness is more than just negativity. It’s a testament to
When you’re in love, you often miss the signs of a one-sided relationship. Could it be? Could you be in this type of situation? It’s easy to fall into the trap of a one-sided relationship. In the beginning, everything seems perfect. This is mainly due to the fact that you’re seeing things through what some call “rose-colored glasses”. This means your relationship looks and feels amazing, and the new love is so strong it covers all faults and imperfections…even the one-sided traits. When love is
Being a people pleaser is just not healthy for your self-esteem and may stop you from achieving your goals in life. Pleasing others is good sometimes, especially if you’re doing something from the kindness of your heart. But always striving to make people happy, regardless of your own worth, is never a good thing. That's why you need to stop being a people pleaser for your own good. Because always wanting to please others will eventually make you feel quite empty. How to stop being
We all want that fairytale relationship, but unfortunately, they’re rare. There are many red flags in a relationship you must realize. I didn’t want to hear it. No, I didn’t want to see the signs that my relationship was dying. I tried so many ways to save the union I had between my partner and me, but it just came tumbling down. I failed to see the red flags in a relationship that was already gone. Left with heartbreak, I learned many things about life
Relationship fights, unlike other confrontations, can be good. It all depends on how much you respect each other in the process. When you think about fighting, you rarely think of positive things, am I right? Well, there is a certain amount of positive feedback which is present in relationship fights, that is if it’s a healthy fight. No one likes to get angry and have a disagreement, but when they do, there should be some amount of growth and strengthening of the union that happens
The truth is friends change. No matter how much you love an appreciate your acquaintances, they can still fade and disappear from your life. I remember having certain friends in primary school. Now, I never see these people, and rarely even think about them anymore. It’s sad, I know, but friends become different people over time - they inevitably change. The changes that occur among friends can be small or drastic, and this determines the changes that end or begin friendships. The strangest thing that
We all know quotes can lift the spirits, and some can make us laugh. Dr. Seuss quotes can do both, and strengthen our imagination as well. I grew up reading Dr. Seuss books and loved them too. As I read the rhyming sentences, I felt this strange magic pass right through me. I never thought those words that I Loved so dear could actually change my perspective on life. But it’s true, I see them now as Dr. Seuss quotes more than just a children’s
