How to holds all relationships ?

“Trust is the glue of life. It's the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It's the foundational principle that holds all relationships.”― Stephen R. Covey

“I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

“I don't trust people who don't love themselves and tell me, 'I love you.' ... There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.” ~ Maya Angelou

Marriage does not guarantee you will be together forever, it's only paper. It takes love, respect, trust, understanding, friendship and faith in your relationship to make it last.

Never trust a person that has let you down more then 2 times. Once was a warning, twice was a lesson and anything more then that is simply taking advantage!

Interview at Alcohol factory

In an alcohol factory the regular tester died and the director started looking for a new one to hire.

A drunkard with a ragged, dirty look came to apply for the position.

The director of the factory wondered how to send him away. They tested him.

They gave him a glass with a drink. He tried it and said,”It’s red wine, a muscat, three years old, grown on a north slope, matured in steel containers.”

“That’s correct”, said the boss.

Another glass.”It’s red wine, cabernet, eight years old, a south western slope, oak barrels.”

“Correct.”The director was astonished. He winked at his secretary to suggest something.

She brought in a glass of urine. The alcoholic tried it.

“It’s a blonde, 26 years old, three months pregnant, made inside the office. And if you don’t give me the job, I’ll also tell who’s the father!”

The boss collapsed…

Every Woman has a weak point

Men will never admit it, but it happens to them too. Recently read that for consistent state of joy, one needs 4 hugs a day, make sure your getting your dosage. ~ Kenzie Jensen 

I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words. ~ Ann Hood

No matter how strong a woman is, she has a weak point. And sometimes all she needs is a hug.

I love hugging people. I still hug everybody in my meet-and-greet lines. ~ Taylor Swift

Everyone needs a hug no matter how tough they act because the tougher they act the more they are hurting inside. ~ Melanie McNichols

10 Bad Habits That Drain Your Energy

Are you tired of being tired? If so, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans report feeling tired during the day. In most cases, this issue can be attributed to lifestyle factors. Here are ten bad habits that drain your energy.

1. Dehydration

Without enough water, you blood becomes thicker and requires more effort from your heart to circulate. Blood is also less able to transport nutrients and oxygen, making you feel tired easily.

2. Going to Bed Too Late

Researchers have found that the most critical stages of sleep occur between 10pm and 1am. If you feel like hitting the snooze every morning, consider adjusting your bedtime.

The worst type of crying is the silent one.

The worst type of crying is the silent one. The one when everyone is asleep. The one where you feel it in your throat, and your eyes become blurry from the tears. The one where you just want to scream. The one where you have to hold your breath and grab your stomach to keep quiet. The one where you can't breath anymore. The one that you realize that the person that meant the most to you, is gone...--

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.” ~ Dr. Seuss

“Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.”~ Veronica Roth

7 Things Every Woman Should Know About Men

Men and women are created differently by God. Things that matter a lot to women don’t matter as much to men and vice versa, for the most part. Theories about men’s behavior have evolved based on studies conducted on men aged 18 to 22. Women often complain that men’s behavior seems odd to them. Here are a few things women should know about men:

• Actions speak louder than words 
Men cannot read minds and they are not as expressive as most women are. Tell your man what you want and he will try to give you that. Stop expecting him to understand and fulfill your expectations on his own. Tell him what you expect and want. For example if you want him to surprise you with a special date tell him you love it when he surprises you with a date.

When a person Hurts you

I don't know the actual meaning of maturity, but for me maturity is when a person hurts you & you try to understand their situation rather than hurting them back.

Hurting them back only means that both of you hurt then, and you caused them hurt. If you love someone you will do all you can to never intentionally cause them pain, even if they have caused you unbearable pain at times, you would rather cut out your own heart than to hurt them. In short, true love doesn’t seek it’s own, rather it seeks the best for the other always. It doesn’t matter in the long run what they may do to you, what really matters is what you about it. You don’t have to put up with their stuff, you can just walk away, and if that hurts them, then they only have themselves to blame, but never hurt back if you truly love them ~ Frank Hancock 

“I have learned now that while those who speak about one's miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.” ~ C.S. Lewis

When you try to understand why you feel hurt before you blame someone else for your feeling to understand if they really abused you (physically, sexually, psychologically, socially, etc.) or if you are just being jealous, prejudice, demanding something unreasonable, not respecting their boundaries or right to say no, etc. or even misinterpreting the situation. ~ Mari Cammarata 

Maturity is accepting full responsibility for my actions/behavior and not blame others for my choices that have formed my reality. ~ Mary Davison 

The wisdom of maturity, sets you free from the need to react. Accepting that when someone hurts you, they do not have the power to hurt you, you choose to feel hurt. Their bad behaviour is their issue to solve. ~ Caitriona Doran

13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

People who are mentally strong and well adjusted are different in a number of ways. Very often, the best way to learn from such people is to observe what actions and behaviors they avoid. Here are the top 13 things not to do if you want to be mentally strong.

1. Quit When Things Get Tough

One of the most important qualities of mentally strong people is resilience and the ability to keep going when they run into obstacles. This is a quality found in some of the toughest people in the world, such as Navy SEALs.

What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Your Intimacy Life

Did you know that your zodiac sign can reveal a lot about you and your personal preferences? The planets, points, and your sun sign, when combined, show your personality in a relationship. Mars and Venus are considered the relationship and sex planets, so here is what your zodiac sign says about your sex life:

It is a sign of infancy. People under this zodiac sign want to be first at everything and are easily hurt. They can’t stand rejection but make a quick come back. They are not much into romance and flowers. They love spice in their sex life and believe in actions. If they want something, they want it. And if you are the one what they want, you are going to enjoy being with them.

Love and Romance Meaning:

Love and romance go hand in hand. Romance is not about pampering a woman with expensive gifts or spending money on her. It’s about creating spectacular moments of love that transcend time and leave her overwhelmed and cherished to the core. Romance is letting her feel that she is treasured and that she has a very very special place in your heart and in your life.It’s about giving her the time and attention she deserves. It’s about making her feel like the most beautiful and spectacular woman you ever met. Romancing a woman is sitting close to her, holding her hand, looking into her eyes, whispering into her ears, leaving short love notes around the house as surprise expressions of your affection. It’s about running your fingers through her hair when she keeps her head on your lap. It’s about cuddling and snuggling with her while watching movies and listening to love songs together. Romance is about turning each moment spent together into a memorable and cherished moment for an entire lifetime…. Aarti khurana

Be that man in a woman’s life

A woman can forget a man who broke her heart and left her shattered but she can never forget the man who gathered the broken pieces, healed her soul and made her smile again. Be that man in a woman’s life… Aarti Khurana 

The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection. ~ Thomas Paine

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father. ~ Frank Abagnale

It takes a real man to handle you, embrace your imperfections, tell you the truth no matter how brutal it is, never give up on you no matter how hard it is, pleasure you, treat you like you're the only one, and give up the game.

The biggest coward of a man

Sometimes it's better to keep silent than to tell others what you feel because it will only hurt you when you know they can hear you but they can't understand.

Never Play With The Feelings Of Others, Because You May Win The Game But The Risk Is That You Will Surely Lose The Person For Life Time.
William Shakespeare

If you can't see and estimate my feelings towards you, and you can't love me as much as I do. One day you will find out that some other man is very grateful to you, as he was able to find me. And he will be the only one who will deserve my love.

There are loads of dodgy women out there who pretends they love you but in real they not. Sincere man who seek love encounter women who play with them for their own motives. In my books that man is brave who get hurt, emotionally wounded by women but still fall in love with women after bad experiences. ~ Horus Khan 

5 Common Kissing Mistakes

5 Common Kissing Mistakes

Kissing someone is not rocket science, rather it’s the art of caressing someone you love. But while kissing we can often unknowingly make mistakes that can be a disaster. Stop wondering why he/she does not like it when you kiss, here is a list of 5 common kissing mistakes to help you out:

1) Bad Breath : This is a big turn-off for almost everyone and probably the most basic blunder. Chances are good you might never kiss the same person again! Do something to fix it! Drink plenty of water every day to keep you hydrated and rinse away food odors. The fastest remedies are mint mouthwash, gum, or breath fresheners. Avoid drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes, or eating fish/onions before your date or when you plan to romance your partner. Hygiene is important and you should maintain it. If you have rotten teeth fix them by seeing your dentist. Brushing your teeth is not enough, floss also, and don’t forget to brush your tongue. Make sure your mouth is clean before you kiss.

2) Fast and Furious : Usually women like to kiss slowly with seductive movements. Don’t go too fast or push your partner so hard that it hurts. Being too aggressive will spoil the moment. Pay attention to the response from your partner when you kiss them and proceed accordingly. If your girl/guy is consistently resistive, slow down and back off a little. Each seduction has its own pace and you should act accordingly.

3) Involving tongue : This is something which requires your own judgment. At first you should kiss just using your lips without tongue. Tongue should enter the picture naturally, don’t force it. Don’t put your tongue into their mouth all at once, let it go slowly. See the reaction first then proceed. If you are going to French kiss take your tongue back every once in a while and let your partner crave and chase it.

4)  All wet : This can be a little creepy. Don’t get carried away and put your saliva on your partner’s face, nobody likes it, it can ruin the experience and embarrass you later. Control your tongue and saliva, the trick is to swallow it.

5) Hands involvement : The movement of your hands matters. Not using hands while kissing is missing out on half the pleasure. Use your hands in the right place, don’t get too pushy, but caress the face and head, the neck a little, then move on to other pleasure zones. Seduce your partner gradually. Sometimes let your partner lead and you just enjoy. One more thing, don’t keep your eyes open while you kiss. Tilt your head to the right and kiss naturally. Don’t get nervous or stop breathing. This will make you look odd.

Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another. ~ Thomas Merton

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.~ A. A. Milne

Never force your child to pray

The neighbors had come over for dinner at Little Johnny’s place.

As they sat down for dinner, father asked Little Johnny to do the prayers.

Johnny replied, “But dad, I’m scared.”

His Dad told him to just be honest and say what he felt best.

So as everyone joined hands,

Johnny began: ” Dear Lord, thank you for bringing the kid who ate my cookies. Please bless them him with food so that he doesn’t take mine. Also forgive his elder brother who undressed my sister and started wrestling with her. I’m sure he won’t do that again. Speaking of clothes, I want you to bless all the naked women on my dad’s phone with clothes. Seriously, they need it. And lastly, I want you to provide shelter to the homeless man who sleeps with my mom when dad goes to work. Thank you.”

No one had dinner that day.

The Beauty of a Woman

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”~ Audrey Hepburn

My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. ~ George Washington

I'm not a stereotypically beautiful woman, and I'm so happy that I'm not. I've seen those ladies - the need to be attractive at all times is ghastly. Also, in your twenties, if you are beautiful, everything comes to you, so you never need to develop a personality. I never had that problem. ~ Miranda Hart

A beautiful woman delights the eye; a wise woman, the understanding; a pure one, the soul.~ Minna Antrim

Definition of TIME

Definition of TIME!
Slow, when you wait!
Fast, when you are Late!
Deadly, when you are Sad!
Short, when you are Happy!
Endless, when you are in Pain!
Long, when you feel bore!
Sometimes, time is determined by your feelings
and your psychological conditions not by clocks...

So, Have A Nice Time Always!! 

Don't play with someone's heart

Don't play with someone's heart if you have no intentions for a serious relationship.

“Maybe I was destined to forever fall in love with people I couldn’t have. Maybe there’s a whole assortment of impossible people waiting for me to find them. Waiting to make me feel the same impossibility over and over again.” ~ Carol Rifka Brunt

We ignore those who wants us, love those who hurt us and hurt those who love us. Well, thats life.

People say I love you all the time

People say I love you all the time - when they say: take an umbrella it’s raining, or hurry back, or even, watch out you’ll hurt yourself. There are hundreds of ways of wording it - you just have to listen for it.

“Love is not to be proven or measured...It exists, and that is enough.”~ Jorge Amado

It's very easy to say the words that you are loved in with your partner, but sometimes in the lives of some couples gets the moment, when they must prove their love. This is a brilliant quote about how to prove your love to someone.

Some people just say it out of habit to almost everyone. I never say it unless I mean it. I would rather show it than to say it to a couple of people that have been my best friends for most of my life. Always showing it, means more than just verbalizing. ~ Linda Flanders 

“We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don't even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It's time to put an end to this. It's time for us to let ourselves be loved.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

There Are Two Kinds Of Forgiveness

There are two kinds of forgiveness. The kind when you forgive and you give them another chance or the kind you forgive but you move on without them. Use them both wisely. 

Whether you decide or not to keep contact with the person you forgive, you should forgive them not because they deserve it, but because you deserve peace of mind. Forgiveness is a pure selfish act, it’s not easy, but really worth trying. Anger only hurts you because most of the time the person you’re not willing to forgive is not even aware anymore of the pain, and grudge you hold against them. ~ Ana Hernández 

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.~  Martin Luther King, Jr.

Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. ~ Marianne Williamson

I was being told that to forgive others is important for my healing. Instead, I found out that (in my case) to forgive myself was the underlying real thing I had to learn. You do not always have to come to the point to forgive everything in order to find peace, but to forgive yourself and give yourself another chance. ~ Persephone Gasoline

Sometimes it’s better to be kind

Sometimes it’s better to be kind than to be right. We do not need an intelligent mind that speaks, but a patient heart that listens.

For listening is the beginning of understanding and kind words uplifts the persons spirit and calms the soul. All ears! ~ Ace Lagasca 

Soft and kind hearted people are not fools. They know what people did to them, but they forgive again and again because they have beautiful hearts. ~ Unknown

One who is kind is sympathetic and gentle with others. He is considerate of others' feelings and courteous in his behavior. He has a helpful nature. Kindness pardons others' weaknesses and faults. Kindness is extended to all - to the aged and the young, to animals, to those low of station as well as the high. ~ Ezra Taft Benson

Be a good human being, a warm-hearted affectionate person. That is my fundamental belief. Having a sense of caring, a feeling of compassion will bring happiness of peace of mind to oneself and automatically create a positive atmosphere.

Qualities of Good Woman

Pay Attention To Her! 
When a woman is “tripping” she cares. When a woman is “mad” she believed in you and you let her down. When she’s “asking questions” she is trying to gain clarity. When she’s quiet and letting things “slide” she is giving up. And when she’s not doing any of the above just know you lost a good woman.

A pretty face gets old. A nice body will change. But a good woman will always b a good woman.

A GOOD WOMAN can only take so much. Don't underestimate her desire be happy even if it means moving on without you.

A real woman doesn't hate on another woman. She gives props and compliments instead of insults.

“Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.” ~ Mandy Hale,

“Be Original. Follow your dreams. The worst possible thing for you to do in life is give up what makes you happy.” ~ Love The Stacks Bookstore

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. ~ Carl Jung

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.” ~ Dr. Seuss

Three Golden Rules in a Relationship.

Three rules in a relationship. Don't lie, don't cheat and don't make promised you can't keep.

Share if you Care !

Be Gentle With Yourself

If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough. — Daniell Koepke

Avoid, Avoid

Avoid people who mess with your head. Avoid people who intentionally and repeatedly do and say things that they know upset you. Avoid people who expect you to prioritize them but refuse to prioritize you. Avoid people who can’t and won’t apologize sincerely.
Avoid. Avoid.

Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret. ~ Miguel Angel Ruiz

Don't Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. ~ Miguel Angel Ruiz

They say love is blind. I disagree

“They say love is blind. I disagree. Infatuation is blind. Love is all-seeing and accepting. Love is seeing the flaws and blemishes and accepting them. Love is accepting the bad habits and mannerisms, and working around them. Love is recognizing all the fears and insecurities, and knowing your role is to comfort. Love is working through all the challenges and painful times. Infatuation is fragile and will shatter when life is not perfect. Love is strong and it strengthens because it is real.”

“Once we recognize the fact that every individual is a treasury of hidden and unsuspected qualities, our lives become richer, our judgment better, and our world is more right. It is not love that is blind, it is only the unnoticed eye that cannot see the real qualities of people.” ~ Charles H. Percy

“Because he is good and kind,” she explained softly, then went on. “Because he treats me like a princess. Because he makes me laugh. Because he makes me happy. Because he took the trouble to read to me when I could not read to myself. Because he fed me and gave me wine when I could not eat or drink at balls. Because when he kisses me my toes curl, and when he makes love to me I cannot contain my passion.” ~ Lynsay Sands

3 Things I Want In A Relationship

3 things I want in a relationship: Eyes that wont cry, lips than wont lie, and love that wont die.

I don't want the perfect relationship, because perfect is impossible. I want trustworthy, honest, loyal and love. I love imperfections. I don't want perfect. I want worth it.

I want a relationship where we talk like best friends, play like kids, argue like husband and wife, and protect each other like siblings.

Some think love can be measured by the amount of butterflies in their tummy. Others think love can be measured in bunches of flowers, or by using the words 'for ever.' But love can only truly be measured by actions. It can be a small thing, such as peeling an orange for a person you love because you know they don't like doing it. ~ Marian Keyes

The relationship between husband and wife should be one of closest friends.~ B. R. Ambedkar

All relationships have one law.

All relationships have one law. Never let the one you love feel alone, especially when you're there.

A good relationship is with someone who knows all your insecurities and imperfections but still loves you for who you are.

Putting your love, trust, and understanding to each other little by little, day by day is the perfect recipe for a stronger relationship.

Never beg someone to love or be with you

Never beg someone to love or be with you, because when you do, you give them the power to use and walk all over you. When someone truly loves you, their actions will show and prove it to you, and you will never have to convince or beg them to love or be with you.

Never beg people to stay against their will. Sometimes the gift of goodbye opens another door for you. Move on, and create the next chapter of your life.

Never beg people to stay against their will. Sometimes the gift of goodbye opens another door for you. Move on, and create the next chapter of your life.

Never beg for a relationship. Be brave to accept the one who really wants to be with you and reject the one who just pretends to be with you.

When you allow yourself to feel Hurt

“To be rejected by someone doesn't mean you should also reject yourself or that you should think of yourself as a lesser person. It doesn't mean that nobody will ever love you anymore. Remember that only ONE person has rejected you at the moment, and it only hurt so much because to you, that person's opinion symbolized the opinion of the whole world, of God.” ~ Jocelyn Soriano

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” ~ Dalai Lama XIV

Dear Heart, it is good to feel the wonderful emotions, but don’t overdo it when you are hurt or else you will get sick too. You will get tired easily to perform your duties. In the end you will be the one to suffer most. I may suffer stress from your depression but it will just make you weaker. Your Brain! ~ Ghie Morales 

Dear Brain – if you do not allow yourself to feel your emotions, it can make you sick.

When you know it’s true love?

“It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”~ John Green

“Every time we make the decision to love someone, we open ourselves to great suffering, because those we most love cause us not only great joy but also great pain. The greatest pain comes from leaving. When the child leaves home, when the husband or wife leaves for a long period of time or for good, when the beloved friend departs to another country or dies … the pain of the leaving can tear us apart. Still, if we want to avoid the suffering of leaving, we will never experience the joy of loving. And love is stronger than fear, life stronger than death, hope stronger than despair. We have to trust that the risk of loving is always worth taking.” ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen

Feelings may never leave, but you still need to move on to better things.

Lots of people who love you leave. Why? Cowardice. Maybe they are married to someone else and they don’t want the drama & expense of divorce. Maybe their family does not approve. Maybe they have religious differences. These are what’s called taking the easy way out. ~ Carrie McClure 

You know it's Love when your feelings don't leave even if the person does.

The Four Agreements

“1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. 

2. Don't Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering. 

3. Don't Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. 

4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.” 
― Miguel Ruiz

Become That Which You Aspire To Be

Life is not a race-but indeed a journey. Be honest. Work hard. Be choosy. Say “thank you”. “I love you”, and “great job” to someone each day. Take time for prayer. Be thankful. Love your life and what you’ve been given, it is not accidental. Search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself. Plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you’ve been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment. ~ Bonnie Mohr

I never said I wanted a 'happy' life but an interesting one. From separation and loss, I have learned a lot. I have become strong and resilient, as is the case of almost every human being exposed to life and to the world. We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. ~ Isabel Allende

A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy dare live. ~ Bertrand Russell

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. ~ Carl Jung

Sensitive People. (Is this you?)

“Sensitive people are the most genuine and honest people you will ever meet. There is nothing they won’t tell you about themselves if they trust your kindness. However, the moment you betray them, reject them or devalue them, they will end the friendship. They live with guilt and constant pain over unresolved situations and misunderstandings. They are tortured souls that are not able to live with hatred or being hated. This type of person needs the most love anyone can give them because their soul has been constantly bruised by others. However, despite the tragedy of what they have to go through in life, they remain the most compassionate people worth knowing and the ones that often become activists for the broken-hearted, forgotten and the misunderstood. They are angels with broken wings that only fly when loved.” ― Shannon L. Alder

Never take your loved ones for granted

Never take your loved ones for granted because you never know when their hearts will stop beating, and you won't have a chance to say goodbye.

The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.~ Joseph B. Wirthlin

Part of my writing style can be attributed to my mother's impatience with comedy, because whenever I told her a story she would say, 'Yeah, yeah, just tell me: is it good for you or bad for you?' Consequently, I think, I was always afraid to indulge in the time that you need to tell a joke, very nervous about anything that constituted an Act II. ~ Patricia Marx

A camp with their mothers-in-law

A group of young women decided to arrange for a camp with their mothers-in-law to hopefully get to know and understand each other better.

Two buses were hired, one for the mothers -in-law and the other for the daughters-in- law.

Unfortunately the bus with the mothers-in-law was involved in an accident and all the passengers died on the spot.

The daughters in law (women being women) shed a few tears but they were all puzzled by one sister who wailed uncontrollably for what they perceived to be her loss.

Her friend asked her, “Forgive me for asking but why are you crying so hard, I didn’t realize u were so close to your mother-in-law?”

To which she replied, “No we are not close at all, she missed the bus!”
