HOW SELF RESPECT AFFECTS YOU AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP

Alison Ricard

Self respect plays a very important part in relationships and happiness. But can you differentiate the line between giving in and losing your own respect?

We’ve all heard this line before, that love needs understanding and compromise to be successful.

And it’s definitely true.

But love works best only when both partners understand each other and compromise for each other.

If you give while your partner only takes, no matter how compromising or caring you are, you can’t hold on to happiness forever.

And that’s where self respect comes into the picture.

3 characteristics of a repentant spouse

3 CHARACTERISTICS OF A REPENTANT SPOUSE

Eric Mason

If you want a strong marriage, there comes a time to be honest about yourself.

Would you like to revolutionize your marriage? Then try starting with a little repentance. It’s amazing how much healing can occur between a husband and a wife when 10 little words are said: “I am so sorry for what I did. I repent!”

As we grow as believers in Jesus Christ and become surrounded by more and more Christians, it’s easy to put on a façade. Often we aren’t willing to admit where we are spiritually because we’ve become skilled at hiding our weaknesses.

Hurt Feelings Do Not Mean You Did Something Wrong

HURT FEELINGS DO NOT MEAN YOU DID SOMETHING WRONG

LaVerna Wilk

I was recently visiting with a friend and she shared a story about a blowout fight she had with her husband. Being a therapist, I’ve grown used to this over the years.

The story went like this. Someone accidentally moved her chair as she was going to sit down at work, causing her to fall and hit her neck against a desk. As a result, her range of motion was limited and it was very painful for her to turn her head.

After her fall, she and her husband had been driving on the freeway and as he was trying to make a last-second lane change, he asked her to check out the passenger side window for cars. She said she felt disregarded because he knew she was in pain, and his request only made it worse.

It’s common for life to get difficult from time to time. But if you don’t know how to make yourself happy and pick yourself back up, you can run into trouble.

PATIENCE, KINDNESS AND CONSIDERATION

A 40-year-old man visited his old father who could no longer see very well. As both of them sat in front of his house chatting, a dove flew in and perched on the window.

The old man asked his son, “Is that a dove that perched on the window?”

The son replied, “Yes, dad.”

After a short while, he asked the son the same question a second time and got the same answer.

The lion inside a man does not eat women

THE LION INSIDE A MAN DOES NOT EAT WOMEN

At one time a newly married young man was shouting at his 20-year-old wife. His father called him inside and said to him, “We only shout at people our threats can give fear but not the same to a woman especially the one you call your wife. The way you are shouting, you are giving away your power and she is the one you are giving it to. Your threats make her stronger.”

Most men believe that a woman is subdued when she is being threatened, but that’s a lie. Nothing is further from the truth!

Let us not be blind and still feel we have our eyes wide open. Why is it that the moment a man starts having sex, even with a 15-year-old little girl, his partner stops fearing him? If she was used to running away to hide when she saw him before then, that would stop. I will tell you something about women we have never believed.

19 INSPIRING MALE FEMINIST IDEAS FROM MEN AROUND THE WORLD

Minot Little

Rumor has it you don’t have to be a woman to support feminism. We’re looking at 19 male feminist quotes from men who choose to stand for equality.

Feminism is one of those hardball topics to write about, especially when you bring men into the mix. Those who haven’t delved into the topic of feminism probably assume that it’s all about lesbians, bra-burning, and man-hating, or that a feminist couldn’t possibly love a guy or desire to get down and dirty. Wrong! If those statements were true, it would make it especially puzzling to know male feminists do exist!

When we say male feminists, we don’t mean the oddball pushover male feminists who say it’s alright for their partner to cheat on them because a woman’s body is her own, or the ones who are just in it to be dominated.

No, we’re talking about tried-and-true male feminists who support gender equality in every sense. In celebration of these awesome guys, we’re taking a look at males in the spotlight who use their fame to spread the word about women’s rights.
