Just be who you are... it sounds so easy, right ?

But in daily life it sometimes is not easy. Because … Who are you really?

  • Are you the black sheep in the family? That always show up too late or not at all at family gatherings?
  • Are you the perfect daughter, of whom nothing more is expected than always doing the right thing?
  • Are you the eternal single girl, of whom people no longer expect to have a relationship?
  • Are you the strong woman who always takes small indignities for granted in your relationship?
  • Are you always full of laughter, sociable, fun  cozy, a carefree partyanimal, who grieves in silence for her infertility?

What role do you have? And is it a role that you have chosen? Or has that role been slid in your shoes imperceptibly? That imperceptibly that you've been walking around with it for so many years that you've come to believe it yourself.

"Ofcourse I am in love with my new born baby...don't be ridiculous!"

No matter how modern we are, there are still a number of taboos about parenting. Rufus Griscom and Alisa Volkman wrote down heir experiences and talk about them in this video.

The 4 things you can't say about parenting.

  1. You can't say "I didn't fall in love with my baby in the first minute."
  2. You can't say "I feel lonely, now I have a baby"
  3. You can't talk about your miscarriage
  4. You can't say "My average happiness has declined since having a child."

3 things you should know if you are working on a long-term project

Today's society puts a great deal of pressure on us. We have to do a lot of things:

  1. study
  2. work
  3. raise our children
  4. housekeeping
  5. build relationships
  6. etc

And that pressure can keep us quite busy. At a level that we feel rushed and stressed out. What can we do to create peace and rest in our minds on a daily basis while being engaged in long-term projects?

Did you know that you are responsible for your own compliments?

Taking responsibility for your life is not a half-hearted affair. You either do it or you don't.

Being not a victim is a huge chore if you are not used to it. But it is not impossible. One of the things that we can take responsibility for is asking for compliments.

Improve your relationship with these 3 tips !

In September my husband and I will be married for 20 years. And of course there were not always good times in those years. Because … starting a relationship is one thing. Maintaining one is something totally different.

As long as the sun shines and the sails of our daily lives are filled with glorious wind, the boat will keep sailing easily. But when dark clouds appear and the wind blows you into a whole different direction than where you want to go in life  it's a lot more difficult to keep the boat dry.

A relationship is built. In good times as well as bad times.
