A question I get asked frequently is, "How do you know whether to stay and fix a relationship or just let go and move on?" Unfortunately, like in most things relational, the answer is, "It depends." Not much initial help, I know, but there are always clues that can help you answer this question.
RELATIONSHIP CHALLENGES, TRUST IN RELATIONSHIPS
Have you developed the bad habit of dwelling too much on the same negative thoughts. And there is no outward physical problems associated to them. It is just your negative thinking, like “I’m so depressed” or “I hate my job” or “I can’t do this” or “I hate being fat.” How do you break a bad habit when it is entirely in your mind? There are actually quite a number of ways to de-condition a negative thought pattern.
Monique, 39, self-employed, who owns her own car, is dating a man without a car, and says it depends on who the coworker is. She would need to know this in order to decide if she would be okay with her man riding to work with another woman as opposed to catching the bus. Is this selfish or preventive maintenance? “Boy, you better suffer in the rain and ride that bus for our love!” Monique explains that if she felt uncomfortable, she would expect her man to say no.
What a tricky and difficult concept for men to even digest. However, in today’s dating world, it’s much more common than most would like to believe. The first thing we need to analyze are these successful women, and how they got to the positions they are in. It would be fair to say that successful women play by the rules and know how to work hard and get what they want, with professionalism and education. Painting a picture-perfect world is also another trait most successful women demonstrate.

It does not mean that your attitude is receptive. It does not mean you care about or are even listening to what is being said. Please do not act like you have no idea what I am talking about. We all have made this mistake, especially when emotions are high.
An abortion is like the biggest trick that Satan, through fear, has ever pulled on mankind. An abortion is a decision to terminate one of God’s greatest gifts.

It's not who you attract it is who you keep and it's not who you keep it's who you stay with. Because no matter who you decide to keep you will hit your wall and that's a good thing. The art is in how you stay. You will leave because your good sense will tell you to break up, your friends will tell you to break up, unfortunately this will not get you through your wall. Stay and fight. Some people think fighting is bad I disagree. People who love you will fight with you. They are the way you break down your own walls.
Interracial dating used to be taboo and even illegal just a few decades ago but the concept of dating someone from a different ethnic background is quickly losing the negative stigma that used to come with it. With America now having its first African-American president, it's clear that the winds of change are strong and affecting all aspects of life, including love and dating. Even though mixed couples are now more commonplace than ever in society, that doesn't always mean this type of relationship is easy to successfully maintain.
It is much easier to become a needy human being when you are lacking in a sense of self worth or life purpose. This is a HUGE reason that women can be perceived as needy, because they find their worth in their relationship or dating success instead of their own success. A lot of people live a life, but not a lot of people live a life of purpose.

How many women do you need? Because one is not enough. One will frustrate you. One will help you castrate yourself or liberate you . It will be hard to tell the difference because you are your own worst enemy. You will sabotage yourself and blame it on her. Then you will find someone else to take away the scent of the trail, the trail to yourself. You will betray yourself with a new distraction so you never have to cross the finish line and with renewed enthusiasm you will go around in circles.
