Why ‘I’m Happy But Could Be Happier’ Mentality Is Ruining Our Relationships: Happiness is something we should strive for in every aspect of life but most importantly in our relationships. Happiness in relationships means something different to everyone; a kiss before work every morning or adventures to new places but are we compromising this happiness by second guessing how we’re really feeling? I’ve heard the phrase ‘I’m happy but could be happier’ bounced around a lot recently; constantly repeated by the contestants on Love Island and scrutinised on Twitter. It’s pretty self-explanatory but the phrase implies you’re not content with your current relationship and are always searching for more. It’s like the proverb ‘the grass is always greener on the other side’. As a society, we’re always looking for the next target to hit, the next fashion fad to invest in, the next social media craze and sadly – our next relationship. Is the grass really greener on the other side? Should we really speculate about what could be? Obviously, you don’t know until you try but 21st Century relationships are bearing the brunt of this attitude. We’ve turned into frivolous, indecisive commitment-phobes who can’t be bothered to fight for our relationships.

5 Steps To Achieving Your Dreams: Have you ever felt like your dream is just that- a dream? We say “dream on” and “as if” and “it’s not going to happen ever.” Well, if you’re anything at all like me, you might be feeling overwhelmed, downtrodden, and absolutely uninspired at hearing and saying all of those things. But, what if I told you this- a dream is inspired by the reality and the world that you see and experience every day. It doesn’t take magic to get there, to achieve that version of reality.

Greenide: 35 High-Satiety Foods You Should Be Eating In Every Meal: The idea of satiety foods sounds attractive. Especially if they are wonderful for your body and will help you get in shape with less efforts. First, a little prologue. A few days ago, I came across a research conducted by Dr. Susanna Holt back in 1995. Although it was a while ago her findings still very much apply today. And those who are trying to get in shape (and stay in shape) will especially benefit from them. Dr. Susanna Holt was the one who came up with this principle called Satiety Index. You might be familiar with it. Basically, what she did in that study is, she gave volunteers fixed-calorie portions of certain foods, and then asked them how satiated they felt following each food. There were 38 different foods. Some were not very healthy but it’s not very important. Some of the foods included were boiled potatoes, brown rice, eggs, and jellybeans.

Blogger With Mental Disorder Explain How She Train Herself To Maintain Normal Life: You have heard about it, read about it and yes even talked about it. This is one of the biggest topics in media right now. Mental Health. In this case, we're talking about Anxiety, Depression, PTSD and BPD ( Borderline Personality Disorder).Living a life with mental disorders is a major challenge and there’s always a story behind how it all started. A happy girl on the outside, but screaming on the inside for help and attention. Just wanted to be loved and seen. All that happened in the early years gave the foundation for many of the disorders who will stay there for life. From early childhood up to the age of 16, it was all about the hard life. Divorced parents with substance abuse problem, orphanage and then foster care. All this before the age of 5 the result was therapy from the age of 4. When first diagnosed with BPD at the age of 13, the medication was presented for the first time and after that, it all went downhill faster than anyone could have predicted. The foster care was no help more the opposite. To put the blame on a young girl and tell how worthless she is every day will bring anyone to act in desperation. The place who was there to give the safety and feeling of a family was not there at all. Alone against the world, the drug became a good friend, a huge comfort and the escape was a warm welcome. Then at the age of almost 17, finally the home and secure place was there. With school, fewer drugs and people to call family. An institution it was, but the best place a troubled young girl could be. This, unfortunately, made the memories come back and it hit hard. And after the first child brought a birth depression the drugs again became the only escape. And the same again after the second child ( It has to be said that the children weren’t there under the drug abuse. ) Nevertheless, as a strong person with a strong will, to get out of it all was, in the end, the only choice. After a third child, many years was better until it all crashed again, and the hardest choice ever had to be made. The kids needed more than their mom could give, and moved to relatives.
