No One ever Wants To Be wrong
Why people can't own up to their mistakes and because they can not they may lose relationships.

Many people cannot own up to their mistakes and in my mind that is just sad. I'm a very forgiving person and if someone did something wrong and apologized, than I would accept their apology and move on. But it really is unnerving and sad when someone cannot admit that they did something wrong. Maybe it's a maturity issue with those people, who knows? But a lot of friendships and relationships end because of someone not owning up to their mistakes.

I recently had this issue with a man that was my best friend. He refused to admit that he did anything wrong in our relationship and because he cannot apologize and say, "You know what I can see what you are saying," he told me, "fuck you." People who have a hard time admitting their faults will always have issues maintaining friendships and relationships, because part of relationships are fights, break ups, and make ups. If I make mistakes I own up to them, because I will learn from those mistakes and know that if something happens like this situation again than I will know how to handle it.

I wish I can change what happened between myself and my friend, but unfortunately I can't. I have no hard feelings towards him and I wish him the best in his future. Hopefully in the future when his anger has lessened he will see it from a different side. But if that never happens, it will be sad for him and for me.

Life is about living and growing and if you can not see what your strengths are and your weaknesses, than you will always end up being the same person and not learning. I am learning every day; who I am and what I am capable of. I hope I will continue to learn and work on the things I know I need to work on. I just wish everyone was the same way.

Why Men Think Women Are Crazy

By

It became apparent to me that women are still doing this in full force. When it comes to dating someone new and only for a short time, please do not do this to a new love prospect. Most men will not like this constant push-pull that a lot of women do in the beginning of relationships. Some do this throughout the whole relationship, which is why men complain ... Read more

The Best Breakup Ever! Well Played Sir, Well Played.

You always hear about these crazy break up stories and you are just in awe that someone was that creative to do the breaking up deed in such a creative way, that you possibly question their sanity. Now, this story isn’t creative by any means. I do give him credit for the absurdity of it all. I have been seeing a guy off and on for two years. There ... Read more

How Long Should You Wait For Someone To Text Back?

By

Texting is the easiest way of communication, but unfortunately it lacks that genuine response time or the "voice" you want it to have. With regards to dating this can be a detrimental thing. I know a lot of women who text a man and if they don't hear back with in that hour they have already gone through their minds about the last time they were ... Read more
