Would you do whatever it takes to protect your inner peace and mental health? Is it a bad thing to put yourself first?  Nobody wants to be labelled as a selfish person. I mean, has it ever been a good thing to be called selfish? Well, it depends on what you’re talking about. When you think about the word selfish, you’ll probably remember a time when you didn’t want to share your chocolate bar or your chicken wings with a friend which resulted in you being called selfish or stingy.   But being selfish isn’t always a bad thing. Especially when it’s about protecting your inner peace. And this is where self-care comes into play. A lot of people compromise their inner peace for nonsense. So that could be dealing with a guy who treats you like trash and sticking around. Or it could be as simple as following people on…

Food For Thought… Earlier this week, I had a conversation with a friend about one of my blogs called ‘Birds Of A Feather Flock Together..’ If you haven’t had the chance to read this blog, make sure you click HERE to give it a read #ShamelessPlug. Anyways, he was telling me how he has different groups of friends that correspond to different aspects of his personality. He noticed that some friends are more ambitious than others and went on to asking me about my friendship circles. ‘Of course I have different groups of friends! Who doesn’t lol?’ was my response to him. The difference is obvious when you compare the banter and the conversations you have with all your friends. After going back and forth on this topic, we concluded that not everybody wants to be an entrepreneur. Self-employment is NOT for everyone and that’s perfectly fine! Please don’t mistake the message in ‘Birds Of A Feather Flock Together..’ for the wrong one. I’m…

Have you ever gone through the same cycle in a relationship or a friendship? Every time you address the issue, you hope and pray things will change for the better but somehow you keep going through the same sh*t over and over again! You’re trying your best to fix the issue but your friend or maybe even your bae don’t seem to play their role in fixing the reoccurring problem. This could be an issue that you’re both responsible for or an issue from their side. Either way, whatever you keep going through needs to STOP! Same sh*t, different toilet! There are so many different situations you can find yourself in that will seem like a never ending cycle. All scenarios lead to the same thing: frustration at its finest *sigh*. A very common example is when someone keeps flopping on plans that were made in advance. If you’ve read any of my previous blogs like ‘How…

Have you ever planned a whole conversation before it takes place and when you actually have the chat it goes nothing like how it was planned? It could be when you’re in a sticky situation and you’re trying to get yourself out of it or it could be when someone annoys you in a relationship or a friendship. When the wound is fresh and you’re fuming, it’s as if you get flashbacks of every time this person annoyed or maybe even disrespected you. You start writing a list of problems in your head. Sometimes you end up writing notes in your phone so you can hit them with evidence to back up why you think what they are doing or what they did is dead wrong. Let me hit them with the notes lol! You just want to get everything off your chest, get your point across and hope that…

Firstly let’s define what an ‘inactive friendship’ is. Imagine you had a strong bond with a friend but now the friendship is nothing like what it used to be. Instead, you are the one that does all the fighting to make the friendship work while the other person doesn’t try as hard as you or even care enough to save it. The effort is only one sided. In this post, I’m going to give you 3 ways on how to avoid being a fool within an inactive friendship and instead come out on top! Don’t ignore the red flags There’s a difference between someone not answering or texting you back on the spot, from someone returning your call after a few hours or maybe even a couple of days, to somebody just blatantly ignoring you. When a friend ignores you, it becomes disrespectful and I’m sure you don’t like being disrespected.…
