Wildfires raged through Australia. With the help of a dog named Bear, rescue teams have finally been able to cut down losses of the animal population. It’s been a crisis for quite some time now. Australia is burning. And what’s worse than that is plants and animals alike are paying the heavy price. It is estimated that the number of animal deaths is nearing the billions, many of which are Koalas. The reason why the Koala is taking the worst of it is that they
Before getting into a relationship, you should know a few things, especially facts about emotionally unavailable men. I’ve been in several relationships, some of which were okay, but some of which were nightmares. I won’t place all the blame on the other person because that wouldn’t be fair. I will say, however, that a couple of the men I’ve been with were emotionally unavailable. I tried to compromise, tried to explain my faults, and even communicate about the problems, but no matter how hard I
Happy Valentine’s Day... actually, we’re looking for ways to enjoy an Anti-Valentine’s Day. Sometimes it's more fun! Celebrating Valentine's Day isn’t a bad thing. It’s just that society has taken this “love day” and turned it into a materialistic day of spending tons of money to prove some point. Yes, you may enjoy getting flowers and candy, love letters and declarations, but just as many people rather not celebrate this holiday. What Is an Anti-Valentine's Day?

Embrace this possibility and make 2020 the beginning of a better you.

There are unhealthy powerplay habits that happen in relationships. They’re called demand-withdrawal patterns. This has become a serious problem. There are various reasons why marriages don’t work.

When you’re younger, you don’t put much thought into how life is going to be in your 80s or 90s. No, those years don’t really pass through your mind. When you’re younger, you’re looking for pleasure, building on your dreams, even when they’re extreme. But the sad part about this is that everyone forgets how life is short.

You raise them, teach them, and give them love, and then suddenly, they grow up into adults and become estranged children. What happened? The pain of watching your children, one by one, leave the nest is a hurt that I cannot describe. I have three boys, and one is already moved away. I only see him a few times a year, and it’s still incredibly hard. Yes, I have two others still at home, but they are rapidly nearing the age of adulthood. I am
