Motivational Mondays: Stay the course, Don’t give up!

Posted on: April 9, 2018

It’s Monday, a new day and another week!

 

Monday’s can be tough for all of us. But we must continue to remember why we started. Never forget your why. Let your why be your reason for waking up every single day. Life will never be easy ever, challenges, obstacles and struggles will arise. Just because you hit a fork in the road or you hit a rough patch, your initial feeling and thought may be to give up. Of course, that’s the easiest thing to do. You’ve come this far, why give up now? When trouble, challenges, obstacles arise, theres always a solution, a means to work through what ever you’re going through. Work through it, find ways to navigate through the obstacles and I guarantee you, you will find your way. It won’t be easy, you may find hardships along the way. But nothing is ever that simple, but just continue to stay the course and you will make it through.

What I’ve learned is that too many people want everything immediately. Life doesn’t work that way, and when that happens we tend to quit when things are not going the we you want at that current time.  Not realizing that failure is part of the process and tough times breed strong people and growth happens. No matter what the situation is, you’ll grow from it, you’ll learn from it and you’ll get stronger through it all. But don’t ever give up, why quit. It’s just a rough patch, a bump in the road, we all find ourselves in these situations at some point in our lives. It doesn’t mean you won’t make it through it, nor does it mean you should quit or give up.

 

 

Keep showing up, be humble and keep pushing through. Stay positive, have faith, never give up and never stop believing!

As always, thanks for reading, following along and supporting the journey!

 


No Beauty Shines brighter than that of a Good Heart

Posted on: March 29, 2018

“A woman with a voice, is by definition a strong woman.” 

Take delight in the Lord and he shall give you the desires of your Heart. Psalm 37:4

 

I hope everyone is having a great week so far. This post I’m sharing today is about finding strength, trusting it, reflection and having a good heart. In life, we all go through things that many of us can’t explain or don’t even understand. Sometimes, things happen in our lives, that is so unexpected, heartbreaking and life changing that it effects us in so many different ways. I, myself have been going through a very painful time in my life. Something so painful I wouldn’t wish this kind of pain on anyone. They say that pain changes people. There are two types of pains, one that hurts you and the other that changes you. It can make a person trust less, overthink more and sometimes even shut people out. Pain can also be a motivator for finding strength.

During this time of reflection, heartache, soul searching and guidance through my faith. I’ve seen myself struggle through the pain. I see that pain has changed me in a way where I was at a point where I’ve doubted others and myself. I’ve seen how my pain has hurt me to the core. I’ve even been at a point where I’ve completely shut people out. Not that it was on purpose, not that I didn’t or haven’t valued them, their care or advice. But I couldn’t bare to have my pain and hurt drown in them too. When one experiences pain of this nature, the only natural and human reaction is to feel alone. Leaving you with much doubt –where you begin to question every little thing.

Please know this,  TRUST and BELIEVE if you’re going through any kind of pain or hurt you’re not alone. Even though it feels like you are, you aren’t. I tell myself this everyday, because I still struggle with this from time to time. I also know that it’s easier said than done. What I have learned is that we can’t never allow the pain or hurt to let us lose ourselves in the process. Repeat after me, I matter, I am important and I am enough. These are things I say to myself everyday, although it can be a struggle I still manage to say, believe and repeat it. But hey, trying is half the battle. Sure, I have my moments of sadness, and it’s perfectly normal. Let it out, it’s healthy. We all need a good cry here and there. If we don’t let it out, one of these days you may just explode with an overflow of emotions. But little by little, let it out. Let yourself feel through the pain and hurt. This isn’t something you can prepare yourself for, it’s also isn’t something you can just wake up the next day and just say ok I’m over it. It’s a process, an ebb and flow of ups and downs. Everyday is different. Some days will be good and some days will not be and that’s perfectly fine.

Reflection and Coping….

I reflect, I grieve and I have my ways of coping through it all. We all find ways to deal and cope with things.  I’ve truly appreciated my small inner circle and family for their support, guidance and love during this time. You find that during these times of struggle, you find out whose truly in your corner and by your side.  As far as my time, I try and use my time in a productive way. Whether its keeping myself occupied with work, family, friends or other activities that I enjoy. For instance, I have a passion and love for singing, I have since gotten back into singing, joined a choir and have done a few open mic nights. I found that it has been a way of release and a means to keep my mind off of the pain for the moment in time. I’ve also had the honor and pleasure to guest speak at various business events. Although I’m going through this very painful and tough time in my life, I’d still like to be an advocate and use my voice as a means for positive change and for me its a way to help others and give back, which is my mission and life’s purpose. It truly warms my heart to be able to inspire and empower men and women through this platform. To provide a sense of hope, encouragement and positivity through the lenses of style, beauty, lifestyle as well as real life situations. I hope that my voice, experiences, businesses and words of wisdom provide a sense comfort and strength to all. As well as be a means for positive change not just for ourselves but as a whole.

Let your coping mechanisms be positive and constructive. Don’t let them be ways where it will lead you further down the rabbit whole. If you need to, seek advice from family, your inner circle or even professional help, do so.  Releasing the pain and hurt helps, even if it’s only in the moment it’s conducive to the process. If you can write about it, writing can be very cathartic and helpful too. Let it all out, even if you find yourself getting emotional, LET IT OUT. And remember this is your pain, you’re the one going through this. No matter what advice or what anyone says to you, although the intentions may be for your benefit, this is your process. You handle and you go through the motions how you see fit for yourself. Also, remember to love yourself through it all. Be kind, be gentle to yourself. You’re going through a lot, so don’t be too hard on yourself especially if your trying. Love yourself first and foremost. Take care of you.

Above all, trust and believe that you have the strength, it’s within you.  That voice inside you, that is your inner strength, listen to it. Let it guide and help you through the pain. Sometimes in life, we can’t explain why things happen the way they do. No matter how painful it may be. I can confidently say that I know I’m a good woman, with a good heart and only the purest intentions. But what I have also learned that having a good heart can also cause a tremendous amount of pain and hurt. One thing that I know for sure, I may be going through a tough time now. BUT, this will never stop me from being the woman that I am. No matter how much love and care you have in your heart and even with your good intentions, sometimes not everyone is equipped to handle it, or even grow with you. That’s the tough part, but hey not everyone has the capacity to love the way you love, realize it or see the good, even if it’s starring them right in the face. Sometimes you may be too much goodness and heart that others don’t have the capacity to hold on to it, cherish it and know how to take care of it. I’m content in knowing not to expect a lot in return. But also knowing what I deserve. Even though I know that what I have already matters and I can see the growth potential in all aspects. Not to say you shouldn’t have any expectation but having less expectations saves you from an immense amount of pain. If that makes any sense at all.

Food for thought….

This is what I do know. Here’s the thing about people with good hearts. They give you excuses when you don’t explain yourself. They accept apologies you don’t give. They see the best in you when you don’t need them to. At your worst, they lift you up, even if it means putting their priorities aside. The word “busy” does not exist in their dictionary or vocabulary. They make time, even when you don’t. And you wonder why they’re the most sensitive people. You wonder why they’re the most caring people. You wonder why their existence is not so essential to your well-being. It’s because they don’t make you work hard for the attention they give you. They accept the love they think they’ve earned and you accepted the love you think you’re entitled to. Let me tell you something. Fear the day when a good heart gives up on you. Our skies don’t become grey out of no where. Our sunshine does not allow the darkness to take over for no reason. A heart does not turn cold unless it’s been treated with coldness for awhile. That’s truth and honesty in a nutshell. That’s not bitterness, that true, honest words from someone with a good heart. We don’t just love, we love hard, unconditionally, wholeheartedly and immensely. Find the strength within you to know, no matter what pain can do to you never lose sight of your good heart and pure intentions. Never let pain make you bitter. Turn pain into strength. The road of pain and hurt isn’t easy by no means. Always remember your good heart, you’re a good person and you have the power to be strong, it’s always been inside of you. Never lose sight of your strength and your good heart.

Breathe, and let it go….

Life throws us curve balls, things we can’t explain. They are either there to test us or to strengthen us or even both. I’ve been told that God gives his strongest souls the most challenging feats in life because he knows they can handle it and they will prevail. This hasn’t been easy by no means. But with the grace of God and my faith, I still haven’t lost hope. Turn to your faith and let that be your strength and let that empower you through this time.

Breathe, and let it go. If it’s meant to be it will find it’s way. I firmly believe that. Maybe we’re all experiencing some form of pain for a reason. Sometimes we have to struggle a little to find the deeper meaning behind the message. If you believe in something so much, then keep your faith and find strength through it. When there’s a will there’s a way.  If you’re going through any pain or hurt, remember you’re not alone. I’m here for you. It’s never easy, I’m still going through it. We can remind ourselves of our strengths, our faith and our good hearts. Through it all, we can empower ourselves to find hope, light and positivity through our time of struggle.

 

Remember to never lose faith, never lose hope, never stop believing and never give up! You’re a good soul, a dope soul with a good and pure heart of gold. Never forget that!

Strong and Beautiful: Body Confidence

Posted on: February 7, 2018

Strong is beautiful 

Strong is Healthy 

Strong is Confident 

Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can wear

Own your own Beautiful 

Beauty comes from within and is reflected in a woman’s soul 

Believe in Yourself

You are Beautiful 

Keep Your spirit light, your booty tight, and your goals in sight

 

Hi my loves!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Remember to continue to stay positive, keep the good vibes flowing and continue to vibrate higher. Some days can be harder than most but just remember that all your hard work will all be worth it in the long run. Trust and believe the process and journey!

For this entry, I’m talking all about fashion, strength and body confidence . To me, fashion, strength and body confidence goes hand and hand. When you look good, you feel even better. You know the saying, it’s all mental and its’ all in the way we think about things. Practice self love and be your own cheerleader. A positive mindset can go a long way. A strong mindset goes a long way as well. Stay strong even though it can be hard at times, keep fighting and keep pushing through. 

Many of us forget to love ourselves and the skin we’re in. This is the result of being constantly put down by others, or we listen to what society dictates. We then start to criticize ourselves we begin to self doubt. STOP RIGHT THERE! Most of us fall into the demise of others words, and what media and society standards are on how we should be and look. We need to learn to block it all out. Easier said than done, yes I know, trust me.  We’re all created different for a reason, remember that.  When we learn to accept who we are both on the inside and out, we start to believe in ourselves, our self worth and we begin to love ourselves as a whole. We must block out the noise, the nonsense and begin to hear our own voice. Listen to that voice, own it and believe it. Don’t listen to the nonsense. Be the voice not the echo of all the haters out there.

Over the years, I began to say, Screw that, and f**k all the haters. ‘Cuse my language my loves, but I’m being real, completely honest and straight up as I’ve always been. I’ve learned that people will always have something to say. There will always be critics. But just remember, strong is always beautiful and confidence is the most sexiest thing that anyone can wear. Trust and believe that, it’s an amazing feeling and extremely powerful. For me, I have had my share of being picked apart, and body shamed over the years.  At times, I thought I wasn’t pretty enough or even beautiful. Whether we like to admit it or not, we all have our share of insecurities, me included. We need to stop focusing on the negative and focus on the positive. We can’t let our insecurities define us, because if that happens they will run us. Remember, never let self-doubt or your insecurities define who you are, EVER!  I’ve worked in the Entertainment, Beauty and Fashion industry for over 11 + years and I’ve seen what this industry can do to one’s self-esteem. I’ve seen first hand how it can damage one’s soul and make you feel insecure about your body image. Which makes me even more inspired and empowered to write this and share with you my experiences. Which is why we need to love ourselves in every way shape and form. We’re all beautiful in our own way. Never forget that!

We tend to forget ourselves and how beautiful we really are because we feed into the nonsense and the noise. DON’T FEED INTO IT.  No matter what anyone says, we have to love ourselves first. Remember the childhood saying, Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me…. Words can hurt, but we have too look beyond the words and look within ourselves first. Sometimes, we can be too hard and too critical on ourselves. We need to be more gentle and kind. Live and learn to love ourselves and the skin we’re in. Never forget that my loves. I know it’s easier said than done. Trust me, I’ve had my struggles and doubts. I’ve had haters say things to my face about how I look. But you know what, you will always have your critics. They will always have something to say. Honestly, that’s a reflection on them and their own insecurities. We need to learn to lift each other up, be more compassionate with ourselves and others and not put each other down. Be kind to yourself and be kind to others. Kindness goes a long way, trust and believe that.

For me, I’ve had my share of body image issues. But, I will say, I’ve learned to love myself and my body just as I am. I’ve owned my own beauty and sexiness and I can truly say that I love me and I’m comfortable in my skin. I’m may not be the skinniest Filipina, I have curves, I have big breast, a big butt, but hey this is me and I love my body and my curves. I own it all and I’m proud of it. This is me and I love the skin I’m in and so should you!  You will never fit the mold of what others and what society says, but why would you want to? Be you and be authentic always.

Beauty comes from deep within. A women’s true beauty is reflected in her soul. When you have a beautiful heart and soul it shines from within and it shows on the outside. Love yourself my loves, don’t let the media or anyone tell you otherwise. Learn to be comfortable in your own skin, treat your body like a temple and own it. You are in control and you have the power. It starts from within, remember that. Remain positive and block out the negativity. I know it’s easier said than done, but no matter what others say, believe in yourself that’s what matters and that’s what counts.

Find the your inner strength, own it and be one with it. Your strength will help guide you in everything you do. Believe in yourself, and own it. Be your own kind of beautiful and show the world that you LOVE yourself and the skin your in. Own your curves, own that beautiful body because you are beautiful both on the inside and out.

If I’ve learned anything in all these years, it’s to love yourself first and foremost. Embrace your body, every inch of it. Be gentle with yourself, be kind to yourself. It’s all mental, that’s what it boils to, change your mindset, be positive and let your confidence shine. Keep shining my loves. Ok, I may be rambling at this point, but the point is to love yourself first. Don’t succumb to what other’s say, remember you are beautiful. BE comfortable in your own skin. Confidence and strength goes a long way. Confidence is beautiful and sexy.  Own it and be your own kind of beautiful. Always remember, you are strong, you are confident you are sexy and you are beautiful. Love the skin your in my loves!

Positivity, Confidence, Strength and Self Improvement

Posted on: August 30, 2017

 

It’s a new day, new week! In this post, as I’ve always been authentic, honest and open to you all, this post will give you more insight on me and what I’ve been struggling through lately. I also want to mention, that at this point in my life, I believe that in this current state of being, I’m trying to transform myself into a better person overall. Not to say that I’m not a good person now, I know and believe I am. But we all can find ways to improve in ourselves as a whole.  I believe that with transformation, change for the better is a good thing. It may be scary and challenging in the moment. But change within oneself is good, and its good for the soul as well. I believe it can strengthen your mind, body and soul.

 

In regards to my blog, I still want to and plan to inspire, empower, encourage, and enlighten you through all facets of life.  I’ll continue to empower you while also giving you more insight on my life and me, but ultimately my goal is to strengthen myself, and I hope to continue to do the same for you all as well through this process. I firmly believe in this, while maintaining a positive outlook on life accompanied with a can do attitude, anything is possible. I truly believe that. In doing so, I’d also like to take you on this journey of mine of self improvement.  While I continue to do all those things, I will continue to learn, grow and evolve throughout the process. For me this is a time for reflection, healing, renewing and finding myself again in more ways that I ever thought possible. My goal is to become a better version of myself while continuing to meet my goals and aspirations. I encourage each and every one of you to do so. It can be scary but remember, you are trying, and that’s the first step. Never stop trying to be a better version of yourself, it can only help you in the long run.

What I’m about to tell you may shock many people, but I’m being even more open with you and myself.  I’m bearing myself to the core. Which at times as been a challenge for me. The first step is admitting it, grasping it and willing to change for the better. Finding perspective, and a better sense of self to ultimately feel renewed as a whole.

In the last couple of months, I lost a sense of myself. I started to lose my strength, faith and confidence due to certain things in my life. No one is to blame but myself for allowing myself to feed into insecurities that we all face. For me, I believe myself to be a pretty strong, confident woman, but sometimes I to can falter. Which is what has happened.  But I feel that I’ve found a sense of maturity and humility in admitting that to myself and to you all.  I started to doubt myself and I allowed my insecurities to overcome me. I’m human, I’m not perfect, but this has to be the lowest point in my life right now.  In turn, I didn’t like what I saw in myself,  I knew I needed to make a change. During this time, I’ve been able to reflect and see all these things.  It’s given me time to reevaluate, reflect on everything that transpired in the last couple of months.  Today, I looked at myself in the mirror and I saw ME. I started to recite these affirmations to myself:

I am Bold

I am Beautiful

I am Brave

I am Confident

I am Courageous

I am Capable

I am Strong

I am Enough and I will Never Give Up

I have the strength, to renew myself and my faith to become a better version of ME

I am by no means perfect, I am a work in progress. We all are, every day is a chance to start again, and start anew. Everyday I find myself getting stronger. I believe that tough times and struggles can make you a stronger person. I just continue to believe, remain hopeful and keep my faith that it will all get better soon.

As I recited that to myself, I felt myself becoming stronger. I know this won’t happen overnight, but it’s a start, it’s a process. But I believe in it and I have faith in it. I believe and can see a change in me. I feel that this will be a good thing overall. It will in turn strengthen not only myself but other aspects in my life as well. I want to encourage and inspire you all to do this for yourself. Even when we may think we don’t need to improve, we all can find areas for improvement. In the long run, self improvements can be helpful in many ways. It’s good for all of us. Believe that, and believe in yourself. This has been the hardest post to write, but it’s real, it’s honest and true. I truly believe we are all a work in progress, but I truly believe we all can benefit from this. I know in myself, that it’s been beneficial for me to see myself and see my confidence and strength come back. Join the journey with me, and take time for yourself as well. Remember, self love is important too. See what you find, and how it can help you as a whole and in your life.

I’m believing in the process. With hope and my strong faith I will trust the journey and I know I’m committed to change. As well as find that renewed strength and confidence in myself as I did before. This post is by no means to boast, or whatsoever. It’s a means to share a little more about myself, motivating myself and all of you at the same time. To provide some positive affirmations that have been helpful for me and that can be useful to you too. Remember to always  know your worth, your purpose and true potential.

Always remember to stay positive and optimistic. Don’t be too hard yourself, because at the end of the day your trying your very best. I believe that I am trying my best and I’ll continue to work very hard at it and continue to push through. It takes a lot of courage to stay strong and push through during tough times, but in the end I know I’m becoming a stronger person daily, and I believe and I have faith everything will work out. I believe in you all too!

I hope you found this post helpful in some way. If ever you feel lost, or doubt yourself look deep down inside.  Reflect and remember we are all human, we aren’t perfect, we all have our flaws. But we can find ways to make improvements for the better. What I’ve also found for me that has been helpful is: reading, staying close to my faith, singing, listening to music, putting my energy into my businesses, working out, taking walks and writing have been very therapeutic and beneficial.

What are ways that have helped you pick yourself up? Please do share, I love hearing from you all. I truly believe when we share ideas and thoughts we in turn can help one another become a better version of ourselves.

Have an amazing week loves! Continue to stay motivated, inspired and empowered. Much love and blessings to you all.

As always, thanks for reading, following along and joining the journey!

 


Date Night

Posted on: July 12, 2017

This post is long overdue, I’ve been wanting to share this with you all for quite sometime now. It’s something that is so obvious and simple but it’s so important in any relationship- date night! No matter if you just started a new relationship, have been together for many years, married, married with kids, date night is an essential part in any romantic relationship. In any relationship, whether it’s with family or friends, you have to nurture it, cherish it and this will help the relationship grow. Time is a very important thing, especially quality time, listening, talking and enjoying life — all it has to offer together. Let’s face it, I know we can all admit that at times, it’s easy for us to get caught up in our daily lives, and dates become few and far between-something you too often say, it’ll happen when you have time, or money. Life can be challenging and demanding at times especially if you and your partner have jobs that require more time than the norm or if you’re full time parents. Now I’m not saying your dates have to be over the top or super extravagant  (although a little thought to the evenings or even daytime outing would be nice) but it’s something that should be incorporated into your relationship

My husband and I started having date night back when we started dating almost 9 years ago. It’s something we started that helped strengthened the bond between us. But I have to be honest, due to our demanding schedules it’s been hard lately to keep up the tradition. Although, Friday’s are designated for Date night, it hasn’t been as frequent as we would like. But I’m hoping we can continue doing date night again very soon! At this point, one of us need to just drop everything and say, let’s go out and enjoying the day or evening and our time. Sometimes, maybe a little spur of the moment and impromptu outing might be something you and your partner need to break the ice.

 A Here are reason’s why date night is important:

Date nights are what keep a relationship strong and lasting. Why? During that time, you both can reconnect, engage with one another without being distracted by a phone call, a work email, or even social media. It breaks up the monotony— we can all love our jobs, lifestyles, family and friends but it’s humanly possible to get stuck in a rut. It’s normal, but that’s why date nights are essential. Making time for you and your partner can spice things up in more ways than you think. Sometimes we can get caught up with our crazy daily lives that we forget our partners are there as a support system, to helps through our struggles and see the bigger picture. Carving out time for date night is the perfect solution and way to communicate on another level, instead of talking about the usual day to day. Trust me, your not alone we all fall victim to this from time to time. But it’s up to us to make more of an effort and set aside the time to rekindle, reconnect, relax and enjoy the time together. Cherish it, because this will continue to strengthen the bond you two share.

Get to know your partner on a deeper level–  I know what your thinking,  ” I thought I knew everything there is to know about you…”  Whether you’ve been married for 25 years or have been in a long term relationship with your partner you may think there isn’t much more you need to know or learn about one another. I’ll tell you this, my husband and I have been married for almost 4 years now and dating for almost 9 years and we’ve changed a bit over the years. Not in a bad way, but we’ve grown a lot since we first met and dated, especially in our marriage. No matter what relationship your in and no matter for how long, remember this, a relationship is a partnership. In a partnership, we have to remember we always want to do better and be better. We all want to grow and evolve what’s better than growing not just as individuals but in your marriage/relationship as well. Life always has some kind of lesson for us to learn, the same rules apply in a marriage. So whether you both curl up together by the fire at home or even over a dinner made together at home or out take the time to connect and communicate on a deeper level. It will not only make you grow as individuals but as a couple too. Try it, and see the strength of your bond grow closer.

An added plus, another reason to get all dressed up!!

Also studies have shown that couples who had a new baby but had a weekly date night were half as likely for their marriage quality to decline. Couples who had ‘couples time’ weekly, were more likely to have higher quality relationships and lower divorce rates than those who didn’t. They found that weekly date nights increase communication about important things and remove everyday distractions. Date nights increase novelty so that couples don’t take one another for granted and you both have a chance to do fun, stimulating activities. Having a date night helps spouses to reclaim both their individual identity and their identity as a couple.  Much of the time they are too busy being a daughter, son, boss, worker, mom, dad and friend to remember to focus on who they want to be as people and as a couple.

If you’re constantly on the go with your demanding schedule and job you and your partner are well over due for a date night. For most of us who are in the hustle and bustle,  on the daily grind and going 110% if not more always, then date night is the perfect way to force you to relax and unwind.  What better way then to do it with someone you love and feel 100% comfortable with. When you aren’t distracted the stresses of your job and what have you, having that time away can put you in a refreshed and calm state. So whatever was stressing you before won’t be so hard to tackle, because you took time to hit the refresh, reset  and regroup button and you talked about it together. You both came together to make the time for some good old quality time and R&R with one another. Something we all need from time to time. Try it and see how you handle what life is handing to you with a renewed sense of calmness and mindset. We all need this time, so cherish it, be mindful of it, and use it wisely.

Lastly, you remember your Why… This is so very true for all relationships.  You think, why did we begin this crazy ride through the journey of life together! What brought us here? There’s nothing more refreshing or comforting than to have those moments thinking  “We’re in this together.” To remind you and your partner why you both are working so hard to keep this relationship together, continue to be a solid team, why it’s so important to you both and why you want to continue this together. This couldn’t be more true, especially if your going through a tough time or working through something- moments like these will only provide a sense of clarity and put you at ease. Something you can’t and won’t be able to get if you’re going through it alone or just going through the motions. Now I’m not saying that the other moments you and your partner share aren’t significant.  But, what I am saying is that taking the time and making the effort will not only strengthen your relationship, it will help you both grow even closer as a stronger unified couple not only in life but in marriage. After all, as the saying goes– for better or for worse, in sickness and in health and for as long as you both shall live. 

Life will always have some kind of lesson or test that will challenge you and your partner. It is those test that will strengthen you not only as individuals but as a couple in the long run.

 

These are just my own thoughts and what has worked for my husband and I over the years. What I can tell you is that we all fall victim to neglecting time and not making enough of an effort. We all can get bogged down and distracted by the day to day. But I’m just pointing out ways to reinforce that bond and ways to strengthen it as a whole. Trust and believe you are all never alone, everyone goes through it. But it’s up to you and your partner to make the conscious effort to try. Remember, relationships are always about compromise it’s never a one way street, it takes two for anything to happen. I hope this post helped you in some way shape or form.  and I hope you’ve gained some reassurance in your relationships and I hope you all will make efforts to building a strong, loving and lasting relationships with your partner. Try it out and see what happens.
