By Melissa Tierney Whether we like to believe it or not, celebrities are just like us. They have hectic work schedules, grueling chores, and, of course, families to take care of. These five celebrity couples have been keeping busy with their growing families, their newest endeavors, and their constant presence in the spotlight. Yes, maybe they have nannies, assistants and personal trainers, but these celebs could definitely use an extra hour of sleep like the rest of us!
As a professional Spiritual Teacher and Intuitive Counselor, I am always asked, “When will I meet the right person?” You may think of yourself as a failure unless you are in a happy, committed relationship. You may feel you aren’t attractive, funny, sexy, or smart enough. Ultimately, it all boils down to one question in your head: “What’s wrong with me?”
I'm all for difference in opinion, opposite views always make for entertaining debate. As a woman who was once told I will never be a wife by a man so bold (or more appropriately, stupid) due to the fact that I am 'damaged goods' and already 'been had' (via result of having one failed marriage under my shameful belt), I have often wondered if he was, dare I say it, right? According to writer Ian MacKenzie, I fall under the label of a Cheesecake. Cute; until I read over his explaination and felt like shoving some of his own condescending simile down his throat.
At my ripe old age of 23 I decided it was time to buckle down and get serious about my dating prospects. Living in San Francisco with a sister in New York had made me cynical about the state of courtship and humanity in general. Too long was I happy to sit at home, cabernet sauvignon in one hand, Comcast remote in the other. It took me a long time to ask myself the question, had I already given up?
We've all heard at one time or another someone use the excuse, "I was so drunk, I can't believe I woke up to a troll in my bed! Tequila is never the right answer for Fun Fridays..." And sure, "Accidental Lushing" is an overdone (and in my opinion, completely falsified reasoning to fall back on), but what about those horrific, purposeful encounters? My most shameful experience was not only drenched in liquid courage, it also doubled as a moronic experiment to test the boundaries of my dating limits.
One of my best friends who's a girl thinks it's hilarious. My girlfriend's totally busting my balls and she wants to give my girlfriend a huge high five. Let me explain what happened. A few months ago I launched my book. "Life's too short to date men like me" http://www.amazon.com/Lifes-Too-Short-Date-Like/dp/1462042724/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1320283302&sr=8-1.
Leaving wasn't as easy as I thought it was. I really didn't want to move back home with my parents especially since I had a baby. But I had to put some sort of plan into action and quick. He was due home in a couple days. He called maybe twice since he left and each time he started an argument. He began making these wild accusations of things I wouldn't even dream of doing. My heart ached even more! He was putting on a show in front of this woman. I took this personal because I am his wife and I should be the most important person in his life. Not some flousy!
As a Pro-Marriage Counselor, I can tell you that the best relationship science is clear. Not only does marriage as a relationship have dozens of well researched emotional, physical, sexual, economic and spiritual benefits, but it’s almost never too late to save a marriage.
Charlyism of the Day inspired by Kim K... If you don’t look at yourself, your choices and why you made them, you learn nothing and repeat everything. Today’s Charlyism is inspired by —you guessed it, Kim Kardashian and the marriage that wasn’t the fairy tale she imagined it would be. At least that's her latest quote about why she filed for divorce.
