The Problems With Having An Open Mind In A Relationship

The Problems With Having An Open Mind In A Relationship

~ By Orikinla Osinachi

Most of the words of advice others give you in relationships are often clichés and they are sometimes not really useful to you, because the circumstances in our personal relationships are not the same in most cases no matter how the self-appointed expert counselors try to sound like they know the answers to your problems.

Anyone who has not been there before cannot know where you are coming from and where you are even coming from is different from where he or she is coming from, because Nigeria is not America and what happens in New York has different consequences from what happens in Lagos.

When you have a problem in your relationship, mind who you are telling the problem and surrounding yourself with gossips and busybodies will only worsen the problem.
The best thing is be cautious all the way and instead of listening to many people, listen to your conscience and only accept what will give you the two mos…

If women ran the world we wouldn't have wars, just intense negotiations every 28 days.
~ Robin Williams

The world is full of wonderful women doing wonderful things every day and everywhere and one of them could be your sister, niece, cousin, aunt, girlfriend, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother and they have wowed us in countless ways. But in most cases, these Amazons among us have not been celebrated.


They may not be on the "World's 100 Most Powerful Women" List of Forbes Magazine and they may not be on the covers of celebrity magazines beaming at us, but they are still doing wonderful works in their own wonderful ways at home and at work and from those sweeping the streets everyday to those making straight As in the classroom and those brainstorming in the boardroom. They are all wonderful women among us.


Those who don't celebrate you will underestimate you!
And don't let anyone underestimate you in anyway!


You are the wonderful creation …

Prevent PMS With Yogurt

Prevent PMS with yogurt.

Up to 80 percent of women will struggle with premenstrual syndrome and its uncomfortable symptoms, report Yale researchers. The reason: Their nervous systems are sensitive to the ups and downs in estrogen and progesterone that occur naturally every month. But snacking on 2 cups of yogurt a day can slash these symptoms by 48 percent, say researchers at New York’s Columbia University. “Yogurt is rich in calcium, a mineral that naturally calms the nervous system, preventing painful symptoms even when hormones are in flux,” explains Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., a professor of gynecology at Yale University.
