The Strange Way Childhood Shapes Your Adult Relationships

THE STRANGE WAY CHILDHOOD SHAPES YOUR ADULT RELATIONSHIPS

Kyle Benson

Throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s, Harlow unethically experimented with monkeys in order to understand the effects of deprivation on human infants.

He raised infant monkeys in isolation.

Isolation

Despite being fed, some died. Others were frightened and behaved in an abnormal manner.  When he placed these isolated monkeys in a social environment, the monkeys were socially inept.

This makes sense. If you’re 25 and have never interacted with a single human being, then you have no basis of language or social norms, and you will fear others trying to interact with you.

DEAR MARRIED LADY

  1. Dear Married Lady, holy wives don’t just speak in tongues. They cook super meals, raise godly kids, and wear hot dresses (for their husbands). They have mind blowing sex with their husbands and still make heaven.
  1. Dear Married Lady, forget about changing your husband. Just be an upgraded version of you with more value and sweetness.
  1. Dear Married Lady, look at your husband through the lens of righteousness in Christ Jesus. He may be guilty of some wrongdoings but do not focus on those. Focus rather on the Christ in him. In other words, focus on his positives and not the negatives. Do this in wisdom!

5 Things Men MUST Give Up To Be With The Right Woman

5 THINGS MEN MUST GIVE UP TO BE WITH THE RIGHT WOMAN

James Michael Sama

Be the man you know she deserves.

As we get older, we find more things changing around us without any real warning. Our priorities shift, our goals shift, our desires for what to do on the weekends shift. Suddenly, you couldn’t care less about the bar on a Friday night and just want a movie on the couch.

Suddenly, you don’t care about that one night stand and you just want someone to build a life with. Suddenly, you realize your priorities are changing — and you have to change, too.

Change is hard because it requires losing people and things from our lives, oftentimes people or things that have been a big part of our existence for a long time.

How mean is your mom?

HOW MEAN IS YOUR MOM?

Someday when my children are old enough to understand the logic that motivates a parent, I will tell them, as my Mean Mom told me:

I loved you enough to ask where you were going, with whom, and what time you would be home.

I loved you enough to be silent and let you discover that your new best friend was a creep.

6 proven things women can do to be more attractive

6 PROVEN THINGS WOMEN CAN DO TO BE MORE ATTRACTIVE

Gary and Joy Lundberg

Want to impress your potential partner? These points, gathered from a variety of men — young and middle-aged — point out what’s attractive to men.

In most cases, a woman wants to look attractive to men in hopes that she will find the one guy who will love and cherish her – and she him. If you are in this category and can’t seem to get the job done, you’re not alone. You may be thinking you’re just not pretty enough. If that’s the case, then it will surprise you to read this comment made by a Miss America contestant when she was asked, “How do you deal with all the guys who want to take you out?” She replied. “I haven’t had a guy ask me on a date for ages. And I don’t know why. I would love to go out.”

Being attractive to men is much more than having a pretty face. Apparently, men are looking for more. To test this theory, we did a quick survey, online and in personal interviews, asking men what they consider attractive in women. Here are the six top characteristics that were mentioned – one way or another – by nearly all who were surveyed. These traits are what respondents found attractive in women:

 How beautiful are YOU?

“Look in the mirror and stop seeing yourself as fat, as pimply, as pale, as scraggly – as flawed.” That’s what people say. “Just stop seeing everything that’s wrong with your appearance. When you look past all that, you will see a person that’s beautiful. Then you can be truly self-confident.”

But what if you can’t believe you’re beautiful? What if you aren’t beautiful? What then?

It doesn’t matter.

Sometimes you just feel ugly. Here’s how to fix that.

Let’s face it, we all have those days. Whether it’s that our hair looks like a mess or we’re frustrated with a zit that just appeared out of nowhere, it’s easy to get down on ourselves – especially with magazines everywhere trying to tell us what beauty is. Sometimes all you need is a little reminder of how truly gorgeous you are.

Here are seven things to do when you don’t feel beautiful:

  1. Let yourself sleep in

If you can afford it, give yourself the chance to sleep in or catch a short nap during the day. Sleeping in will not only make you looked refreshed, but it helps banish any bad mood. That’s a double win.

11 SIGNS YOU ARE AN EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT WOMAN

Kelsey Robertson

How emotionally intelligent are you?

Emotional intelligence is the ability to accurately identify your own emotions, as well as those of others according to Psychology Today. It also includes the ability to utilize emotions and apply them to tasks, as well as manage your own emotions…while influencing the emotions of others in a positive way.

Sounds intense, right? But basically what it means is that these people understand emotions and how they influence themselves and those around them. Some people are born with a higher level of emotional intelligence and others develop it through a lifetime of interactions, decisions and events. All in all, people with high emotional intelligence usually have a few things in common. Take a look at these qualities of an emotionally intelligent woman and see where you fall on the spectrum.

5 Reasons Why You Don’t Have a Man

5 REASONS WHY YOU DON’T HAVE A MAN

Farrah Gray

  1. You’re loud, obnoxious and ghetto. These reasons are so obvious. At a certain point in a woman’s life, she should be able to analyze the things she is doing wrong. You shouldn’t have to look around and see if all of your friends are getting married or in relationships while you’re still dating this guy and that guy. Be feminine, lower your voice and be a woman. Your girls may laugh at your antics, but who’s going home alone at the end of the day?
  1. You’re the home girl. You’re quick to roll one up, go do errands, curse and you have countless “home boys” that come over on the low low. This is a bad sign. You’re the home girl that the fellas can call to come through, smoke one with, rent a cheap motel room, have/get some action with, feed you some food and send you home. How does that make you feel? Not too good about yourself. This is a clear sign that you’re doing things wrong. It’s great to be useful, but not so useful that you’re being used.
