Men are not renovation projects

  This story is very common in the world of relationships. A woman falls for a bad boy, a scoundrel, a waste of space — whatever you want to call the type of man who has something attractive about him but has no good qualities. He is handsome, but a liar. He has all the [...]

Emotional upkeep and other people’s flaws

When you live with someone for a while, their flaws begin to show (and so do yours). The first people with whom we have this experience are our family. And the experience repeats throughout our entire life. At school, at work, with relatives, at church, in sports, in dating, in marriage — anywhere we get [...]

I’ve [...]

The power of creating people

Whenever you compliment someone you will make them feel a great amount of joy. In the same way that God created beauty [...]

What you can learn from a vacuum cleaner

  Allow me to make an observation of a law of nature which has a profound life lesson. According to the definitions that chemistry and physics give, “a vacuum is the absence of matter in a certain region of space.” When everything is removed from an area so literally nothing exists there, not even air, [...]

Beating jealousy and insecurity

  Cynthia wrote us: I started a new relationship and I find myself often jealous. He has female friends in dating websites and he calls ex-girlfriends. I was cheated on once before and I feel he’ll do the same thing. I need to trust in him more, but I haven’t been able to. You need [...]
