Toxic relationships are something that most of us come across in our lives. They’re the people that drain our energy, our self-esteem and make us uncomfortable and insecure with ourselves. That includes everyone from friends, and family, to co-workers and intimate partners. If you have any sort of consistent interaction with someone, you can consider that a relationship.
Relationships usually don’t start out as toxic. More often than not, everything seems really normal for a while and things slowly progress to the point where all of a sudden you find yourself cowering in the corner as your mother, father, boyfriend, etc. is going on a yelling rampage and throwing things around the house. It’s what makes victims of abuse less likely to come forward because some times they don’t realize or don’t want to realize what’s going on.
Now that the New Year is upon us, I figured I’d do a top posts round up of the top posts of 2016! I first want to thank all of you lovely people who have viewed, commented, liked, tweeted, posted on facebook, etc. I wouldn’t have top posts if you guys didn’t exist.
So, thank you!
Now, onto the posts.
With a new year comes new resolutions! Everyone at least tries to come up with some sort of resolution for the new year. Whether or not they actually go through with it is a different story.
We’ve all heard of the saying “New year, new you!” How many of you have gone to your local gym and noticed a huge influx of people? The new year symbolizes a new start, a blank slate. You can do whatever you want.
With the end of the year rapidly approaching, figuring out what you’re going to do after college can be a huge deal. Some may already have jobs lined up, or know their housing situation or even have a grand journey to move across the country. Some of you might move back in with your parents. Some will find themselves independent and living in their own apartment.
But how do you get yourself ready for all of this? What do you need to start looking for? Well, here’s a basic list of what you should be looking into and figuring out before you walk across that stage, diploma in hand.
Balancing your life with school or work is something that can be a bit tricky if you’re not the best with time management. Making sure you have enough time to get your work done as well as not holding up in your room because you’re too tired to go out or socialize is crucial to maintaining a good work-life balance.
There are ways to make sure you don’t burn yourself out or favor one side over the other.
First you need to see how good or bad your work-life balance is.
