How to End Self-Sabotaging

I’m sure we have all heard of the saying “you are your biggest critics”. I’ve seen this so many times. I have even criticized myself but of course I didn’t realize it at the time.

Six Ways to Combat Feeling Behind in Life

Navigating through my mid-late twenties has presented itself with some very interesting challenges. However, one of the most satisfying things about this phase in my life is watching my friends and peers create their unique life paths. I have some friends who have been to graduate school and back.

Why Entitlement is Ruining Your Dating Life

We’ve all been there–sad and single. Now single life does not automatically equal sadness. You can have a very fun and happy dating life. However, what turns our excitement into sadness is the uncertainty and confusion of our singleness. You may not understand why you haven’t found someone who is worth your time or why the last catch didn’t work out. While I’m definitely pro-woman and believe we are all a good catch in our own right–there’s a few things we have to honest about. Entitlement is one of those…

Their childhood can be…
