Ways to Set Boundaries With Friends When You’re a People Pleaser

I have a friend (whom I almost got rid of) who had the most annoying habit of asking me personal questions in front of other people. She didn’t do it maliciously.

She was just clueless. I used to seethe inside and feel really awkward when she would ask me questions that were either off limits to her or inappropriate given the setting.

I used to think, “This girl doesn’t have boundaries” But the truth of the matter was I didn’t have boundaries. I didn’t know how to ask for what I needed from my friend – which was to be respected.

Setting boundaries can be uncomfortable, but so liberating. I’ll give you 3 tips on how to set boundaries with friends so that your friends (and people in general) respect you. Most of all, you’ll learn to respect yourself.

What’s a Boundary?

A boundary is a limit. It’s a limit you set for what’s acceptable and what’s unacceptable to you. It’s your comfort zone. Nobody can tell you what your comfort zone is or should be.

What You Do When Another Person Does Not Even Bother to Try

A relationship involves two or more people. We often refer to a relationship as give and take, easy as it might sound, it’s also difficult to debate on this statement. There need would be met for as long as they are getting together.

There are other things that can be distinctive to both of them, for this means that both parties will have different needs per time. Even though they might be some sure needs which will be common between the two of them.

This Creative Ability Of Words

Children’s lives are largely made up of words – the words of their parents, loved ones and those they admire. A parent can fill his or her child’s heart with zeal for education and success in life, or destroy the spirit and future of the child with negative words. Children are word-made.

A wife can lift up the spirit of her husband with positive words of encouragement or destroy him with negative words, and vice versa. A man who has lost his job can come back home to a wife who will hug him and encourage him with words like “Don’t worry; you will get a better job”. With those words, the man will be happy and encouraged to go out there and get a better job. But she can decide to scold him and nag at him saying, “I know you are a good for nothing husband”. A few devastating words could have filled his mind with confusion, his heart with pain, and his eyes with tears. She can destroy his spirit and even cause the man

Info Path Of Mercy

Mercy is defined as not getting the judgment one deserves. So let’s assume that you have a teenage daughter who went out with friends for an evening. You instructed her to be back home by 10 pm or lose driving privileges; she shows up at 11:30 pm. What would or should your response be? In order to teach her a lesson about obedience and responsibility, you should keep your word: suspend her driving privileges. Would you suspend her privileges if she says, “I’m sorry. I was having so much fun, I forgot to look at the time, and then on my way back, there was a road-block. This won’t happen again; please forgive me”? Maybe, maybe not.

God in His infinite love and wisdom clearly said to mankind (in the Garden of Eden), “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden- except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die” (Genesis 2:16-17 NLT). Man disobeyed (see Genesis 3:6). So what should God do, or how should He respond? God’s judgment stood: He threw man out of the Garden (man died; he

Some Sinister Trick All Women Should Know

In 1938 the play “Gas Light” debuted in London. The curtains open to a cluttered domestic scene in the salon of an 1880’s Victorian townhouse. A nervous woman, through the course of the evening, is variously berated, ignored, mocked and belittled be her self-assured husband who also flirts with the pretty maid who attends his wife. When the wife complains of his too-familiar attitude toward the staff he accuses her over being oversensitive, irrational and controlling.

As the scenes unfold, the other source of her anxiety is revealed; inexplicably the glowing gas lights which illuminate the house periodically flicker and dim and when she observes this, her husband assigns this to her imagination as well, not noticing any change in the lamps on the walls. She also claims to hear noises from the upper floors of the house – more evidence of her failing mental capacity, according to her husband. Slowly, the situation erodes her confidence in her own perception and the whole cast call into question her sanity.

Whilst her husband is out of the house on one of his undisclosed errands, a visitor is introduced – a police inspector has come to visit. He

Now Rest From Work in Child’s Play

Blessedness is the business of those believing in Christ. Our pastime is faith, our proclivity is hope, our passion is love.

But how does that translate in common fatherhood? For me, it pivots around being present, which seems easier than it is in a world full of distractions. I’d love a blessing for every time I’ve failed to be present, but of course life (and God) doesn’t work that way. I’d love it if all those temptations into distraction proved of value, but of course they don’t.

The fact is we’re only rewarded with the sweet Presence of God as we slow down for sweet moments where we’re present in life, especially as we congregate with those we love.

On a common-enough Friday morning, my wife having left for work, which means it’s my day to manage household affairs and care for our son, I found myself in the backyard, absorbed by the imagination of our nearly four-year-old.

He stands atop a sawed-off tree stump and spies through a paper roll telescope at the land over yonder. You can see miles through this thing! He tucks his telescope into his shirt and he’s

Information Are Some People Destined To Attract People Who Are Abusive

If one was to take a step back and to think about the people they have been with throughout their life, they might think about the different moments that they have shared with them. This could then be a time when they will see that they have had more good than bad moments in this area of their life.

A Closer Look

When it comes to the bad moments, perhaps there have been times when they had a connection with someone and then before long, they came to see that there was nothing there. How they felt when they first met them would then have been radically different to how they felt as time went by

Along with this, they may have been at least one person who they had to break up for reasons beyond their control. This could have been a time when they were about to head to university/college, or vice versa.

Another Country

If this was not something that took place, it could have meant that it was during a time when they were about to spend a little while in another country. One may have believed that

When Some People’s Childhoods Set Them Up To Attract People Who Are Needy

On one hand, there are the people who come across as needy and, on the other hand, there are those who attract these people. It could then be said that these people are going to have a radically different experience when to comes to this area of their life.

If one is used to being needy, they may find that it is a real challenge for them to get their need met on a regular basis. Yet if one doesn’t behave in this way, they could find that it is a real challenge for them to find someone who doesn’t come across as needy.

The First Experience

When one can relate to the former, it could be as if they are unable to handle life unless they are in a relationship. And even if they are in one, there could still be moments when they feel as though they are missing something.

Another way of looking at it would be to say that one has a container than needs to be filed but, no matter how much water is put into it, it doesn’t fill it up. So through being this way, they

Tips Deceiving Men Hide Their Summertime Affair

Tips Moving Forward After Being Cheated On

Infidelity can happen to anybody. Unfortunately, not all of us are sure where we draw the line between harmless fun and cheating. Each of us has a different understanding of what constitutes ‘cheating’ based on our beliefs.

In 2013, the University of Michigan conducted a study addressing the subjective concept of cheating by asking a pool of undergraduates to rate 27 different behaviours (sexual, erotic, and financial) on a scale of 1-100 in terms of the extent to which it counted as cheating.

What they found was that there was no ‘universal definition’ of cheating, and the behaviour that came closest to being universally considered to be cheating was sex with someone other than your partner. Yet the results did show that some behaviours were overall considered closer to cheating than others. So, while peno-vaginal intercourse was scored at an average of 97.7, oral sex and taking showers together were also in the high 90s. Holding hands and sleeping in the same bed were scored in the 60s while kissing on the cheeks and talking on the phone frequently were at 36.9 and 40.1 respectively.

While there is no single definition of betrayal, we

About What Should You Expect From A Husband When You Catch Him Cheating

Some wives literally catch their husbands carrying out an affair. They catch him right in the act. But many are actually by themselves when they put two and two together or have indisputable proof. Many have their suspicions before they actually get confirmation. But once they have it, then they have to decide how, and when, they are going to confront him.

Part of answering these questions is anticipating how he is going to respond when he is confronted and presented with evidence. And many wives just aren’t sure about what to expect. This is not the weather that you’re going to be talking about. You’re not going to be confronting him about him forgetting to take out the trash. In fact, this is probably going to be one of the most painful confrontations in your marriage, if not in your life.

A wife might ask: “what might I expect when I confront my husband about cheating? I’ve not come right out and accused him before. But I have certainly hinted about it or asked him why he was out late. He always had a ready excuse. And he acted like I was a paranoid,

This Shocking Revelation of Secret Dating

She is not the typical “irresistible sexy temptress”, she is smart, class and a successful woman. She is completely opposite from the stereotype mistress we have seen on tv and movies. The whole episode of my interview with her was a shocking revelation on how she mastered a decade of secrecy over dating a married man.

It was a pure mutual attraction when they first bumped into each other’s arms.

She wanted to clear it out that there was no money involved getting into the affair. It was a pure mutual attraction and she never seduced Mr. C just to get the financial benefits like most mistresses are up to. In fairness to Mr. C his married life is an open book from the very day he met the “Mistress”. The saddest part of the affair is, they met each other just 3 months after Mr. C’s wedding with his legal wife. Could it be a sign that they were really not meant for each other?

Like most married men getting into a love affair, Mr. C gave the Mistress a false hope of filing an annulment over his wife. It was one of

Not all pretty girls can make their men go crazy over them. It is not the face nor the body that makes your man stick with you. It is beyond what meets the eye. You may wonder why unattractive women catch the most eligible bachelor in town? Personality-wise you can make your man go crazy about you too.

But that doesn’t take away the beauty of the diamond etched in our mind. So today, we are going to talk about some of the most famous diamond engagement rings we have ever seen.

1. The Blue Sapphire Diamond Halo- Princess Diana and Kate Middleton

When the Prince of Wales proposed to Lady Diana 1981, he made sure he presented something as royal as the family, and as beautiful as the lady herself. So went for a beautiful ring bedazzled with a halo of solitaire diamonds around a stunning oval-shaped blue sapphire. The band was made of shiny white gold. It turned out the ring was chosen by Princess Diana herself! The ring wasn’t custom made, so it did raise a few eyebrows then. But then again, you can’t question her choice; the ring is as beautiful as the woman who chose it.

29 years down the line, Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with the same ring in 2010. When we

How It All Started In Relationship

Hello girls!

I am not saying ‘hello boys’ because I think this is much of a girls story and you won’t be able to think in our shoes until you wear them, but still if you want to continue reading, then, welcome guests…

Hello Girls and Boys!

I am a 27 year old girl working in an IT Industry at a quite good position, ummm, one should not blabber about herself so much, so, I am in an okay position. I own a bike, live in one BHK rented flat which I have decorated very much with all girls stuffs mostly in pink and green (both my favorite colors).

I have lots of friends and four best friends, every weekend we have a blast, sometimes this blast includes disc, boozing, dance, sometimes it includes cooking the best dishes that one can experiment at my place or some of my friend’s place, sometimes putting a open air grill in my balcony and simultaneously having cold drinks with a feeling of beer (I don’t allow alcohol in my apartment as it leaves a stinky smell behind… that’s yuckk) sometimes driving in our bikes without knowing

Reasons Life Plays Out

Quite a large percentage of people seem to see acceptability as a matter of choice. Reasons are not far-fetched, owing to so many other factors that humans often consider before choosing who to relate with and who not to relate with. Some of the prevalent factors are race, gender, nationality, tribe, or religion.

These relationships are defined by those in question, as they deem fit. Like the popular saying goes; “the choice is yours”. Choice – Acceptability – Relationships.

In that order, it is obvious that the first step to a blossoming or not blossoming end-product is Choice.

Every decision we make immediately a new day breaks, is a function of choice. From whether or not to wake up at a certain time, if we should eat a certain type of meal or wear a particular type of cloth, make a call to a certain person or send a text, board a cab or use the train, go to school or not, or better still – sleep all day.

It all comes down to choices.

In relation to people, choices are a bit more difficult. The first thing an average man looks

Here Top 10 Friendship Killers

Do you have “friendships” that are killing you? I mean, do you have the kinds of friends that you come away from feeling like you have to downplay your achievements or talents?

Do you have friends that are overly possessive? Backstabbing? Or, are you one of those kinds of friends? In this article, I reveal the top 10 behaviors that are killing your friendships — and what you can do to be a better friend and have healthier friendships.

Friendship Killer #1 – Jealousy

I don’t know how it works with guys, but women are notoriously catty. Trust me. I grew up with a very jealous and competitive mother who could not stand for me to shine. In fact, she’s going to be 75 years old in June, and she still hates for me to be a confident, self-assured woman because she feels so threatened.

I also grew up with 4 catty sisters whose only goal in life was to tear me (and each other) down. So I know a thing or 2 about jealousy.

How to Spot Jealousy in a Friend

You know your friend is jealous when she behaves passive

This Seven Signs Your Girlfriend Is Taking Advantage of You

When a man loves a girl, he would want to go over mountains and seas for her. Some girls have discovered this and have positioned themselves to take full advantage of it. Sadly, most guys are not aware of this. It often takes another person to realize that the guy is being used. If you are in a relationship, here are seven ways of discovering this for yourself.

1. She does not take no for an answer:

If your girlfriend likes to have her way at all times, it is a sign that she is emotionally blackmailing you. She has studied you and come to realize that you love her. This is now her bargaining weapon. If you have an argument, she would do all she can for you to concede. If that fails, she will resort to tears because she knows it will break you.

2. She wants you to invest heavily in the relationship:

You may ask “What is wrong with it?” Nothing, if only she invests in the same measure. If you are the one always investing in a relationship and she rarely invests in the same manner, bro, she

About Relationships

If one was to think about the people who they spend time with, they may find that they feel comfortable in their presence. What this could show is that these people accept them as they are.

Acceptance

There is then going to be no reason for one to feel as though they need to put on an act. As a result of this, one is going to feel good when they are around them, and they will feel good when their time together comes to an end.

To have these kinds of people in their life is naturally going to have a positive effect on their wellbeing. The feedback that they get from them will nourish their self-esteem, and it will then be a lot easier for them to achieve their goals.

The Right Nutrients

Therefore, in the same way that eating the right food will allow one’s body to function in the right way, being around the right people will make it easier for them to be at their best. If, on the other hand, one was their own island, it wouldn’t matter who they had around them.

But as
