The significance of designating time to spend with your partner

I would argue that just about all of us would say we are busy. Busy seems to be an inevitable state when it comes to this thing known as life, and I find we are becoming busier and busier the older we get. While I’m not certain if we truly are taking on more duties … More The significance of designating time to spend with your partner

Blaineisms

Mind your business

The idea of keeping one’s nose out of someone else’s business is not, in any way, shape or form, a new concept.

Navigating chaos

Married life, although quite short in duration at this point in time, has been interesting, to say the least.

The significance of understanding boundaries in relationships

Relationships as a concept are a highly subjective one.

I am willing to bet that all of us, at one point or another, have been in a situation that we sincerely did not wish to be in.
