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.

It’s okay, not to be okay

There are some people who always present themselves like they have it all together. You know like those people who seem like they have some type of super power because they do everything and will still smile at the end of the day.

How to Live Your Life as a Perfectionist

How do you become a perfectionist? Are people just born being a perfectionist or is it taught? These are things I’ve continuously asked myself many times before because I struggle with letting things go as they are.

Their childhood can be…

How to Let Go of Your Insecurities and Own Them

No one is perfect. Yet, we hold ourselves to this high level of perfection in many facets of our lives: relationships, profession and personal. We tend to get disappointed when we don’t reach or attain the level of perfection that we want. There’s one thing that becomes very clear when this happens–our insecurities set in. We identify them, recognize them and let them get the best of us. Why? Just because we have insecurities, that shouldn’t be the end all, be all. We can’t let them win because they don’t…
