Recently, I wrote about setting boundaries for dating couples who have physical touch as their primary love language. But I think I wrote with an assumption that people know where to draw the lines. On deeper thought, I’ve seen that people act in different ways for different reasons. Some people know what’s right, but they give justification for whatever else they ‘choose’ to do.
It’s been an amazing 10 weeks back to back of online radio series with Praise Fowowe on issues concerning relationships for singles and married people. We have treated topics like child sexual abuse, househelps, Gucci weds Versace, Understanding the major differences between men and women, etc. We have experienced growth in attendance at the webinars and we’ve also received very heart warming feedback from people who have attended so far. We’ve had people attend from different parts of the world, and we have only just begun. It’s been fulfilling and fun!
Happy New Year! I’m sure many of you have written out your goals and have started working towards making them happen. I know some of us have “to get married by so so time” as one of such goals. Infact, some of the people with such goals have fixed dates “in faith” and don’t even have a partner yet!
I’ve met a number of couples who started their marriages with all the love in the world. They had big dreams and plans to make them happen. Impossible was nothing; everything was in place in their home and the future looked picture perfect.But along the line, each party had to make defining decisions; career change decisions, entrepreneural/business decisions, etc. Those decisions then turned out to cost more than was bargained for because they were not done properly at all. Let’s take a look at a particular scenario.
It’s interesting how overtime, things our parents used to do or believe in seem outdated and out of fashion now. Their ideas seem archaic and ‘funny’. However, you would agree with me that certain values and principles they hold so dear still remain valuable and timeless. After i had an interesting experience with someone close to my parents’ age, i decided to share it with my readers and let me know where her ideas fall in the light of my thoughts.
It’s interesting that after a long break, I’ll have to write on a topic that’s the flip side of my last article. What actually prompted the writing of this article is also very interesting. While i was in the university, i belonged to a clique of lovely focused ladies. We all met in school but had connecting points that brought us together….we were all in the same department and class and shared common values and principles. That made it easy for us to read and have discussions together, pray together and have loads of fun. Did i mention that we
Last week, i was having a chat with a guy who’s been married for a few years. He works on the island and lives on the mainland (meaning he spends most of his active time at work) and our “gist” centered around the implication(s) of friendships with single ladies at the same workplace. He seemed to have his own strong opinion backed by his stance on having undue closeness with those ladies.
It’s been a long while i wrote an article, but it’s been so much in my mind to write one. I came back from a short but refreshing vacation over two weeks ago. By the time i came back, i was energized and ready to face the next phase with renewed energy. During my vacation, i met, and chatted with different people (i went with a group of friends and business associates); some of the people i spent time with, i only knew from a distance before then. It was a time of relaxation; bonding and making fresh acquaintances live
