Going through an Abusive Relationship: End it soon

Monday, December 31st, 2012

Going through an Abusive Relationship End it soonStay all alone is certainly a bad idea! No one would like the idea of living their life all alone, however at the same time, no of us deserve to spend an entire life in an abusive relationship. We all have been gifted with beautiful lives and certainly should not be wasted with someone who does not understand the worth of another human being. If you are staying with someone who is making your life miserable and does not value your presence in his or her life then by every means you need to step out and live your life the way you want. Stepping out from a relationship is not that easy as easily told, one needs to know what to do and how to do! Therefore, it is important for one to know certain the safest ways of ending a relationship.

The first step is to identify the kind of abuse you are going through and against what you need to stand up. Abuse can be various types like:

  • Emotional
  • Psychological
  • Verbal
  • Physical
  • Sexual
  • Combination of any of the above

It is very important for the person to understand the kind of abuse they are undergoing as it makes it easy to strategize you the ways to exit. Like for example, if you are undergoing a physical abuse in a relationship then you need to make a complete break off where in no longer you will have to stay with that person. You cannot be hurt physically unless you are touched, therefore the best way is to break up and leave. Similarly, in case of verbal abuse stop all forms of verbal communication. And, if they wish to talk to you, then it should be done in the presence of others. In case if the person is hurting you emotionally or psychologically, then as soon as a person starts doing so, then what they will get to hear should be the dial tone.

Next is, once you have taken the decision of leaving…you need to stick it by all means. For there is a chance, that as soon as your partner gets to know about your decision, he might try to compress the situation by:

  • Talking very sweetly and promising you to make things better by putting forth their best behaviour and end of all troubles.
  • Also, he might threaten you to worsen things and abuse you more.

 Thirdly, you got to be very strong in such situations. Seek the help of someone, in case the situation is getting too torturous and if you are not able to break out from the relationship. Law is always there to help you out from such traumatic situations. You will have to be strong enough to raise your voice against wrong as you have every right to live your life the way you want it. Also, your inner strength will give you the hope to begin your life on a positive note.

Finally, find strength in others. When you break off, the abuser might try to lure you. They will try to play with your emotions to win you back. Suddenly might start doing things that you like, however you need to be very strict with your decision. Surround yourself with people like friends and family who can decide the best for you and also support you in your decision. Interrogate yourself well, in regards to your needs and what you want from life and take a decision. Consider the fact, that whether you can back up the emptiness of the person or is it unbearable for to stay all by yourself. The solution does not come from what your friends and family tells you…it is in you- your thoughts make you the person you are. However, one thing you need to remember is that any relationship is healthy only when there is mutual respect existing between the partners. So, go on and love life as it should be lived.

Know your Man with the Dog he owns

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Know your Man with the Dog he ownsWe all like to judge a book by its cover. Well, the truth is that the external package always seems to appeal us in the first instance. When we meet a guy, we start judging him by his watch, shoes, hairstyle and the number of platinum cards he holds. The external package encases a possible prince charming or may be a boyfriend from hell that one has to actually go ahead and explore. Girls are always caught up with the first look that is displayed in the first instance. Well, that’s obvious too anything that is good does attract everyone. However, there is something more that can help you reveal the character of a man. If you wish to know more about the cute guy you met at the pub or in a restaurant, just follow him when is out in the park with his dog. A recent research states a few rules of social connection.

The modern man is better recognized with the relationship he has with his pet. “There is a definite correlation between a guy’s dog and his personality” as said by Liana Sepulveda, the supervisor at Centinela Feed & Pet Supplies in Santa Monica. Traditionalists have always believed that dogs match the personality with their owners. However, according to modern researchers, the dog does not inherit the qualities of master but probably the other way round. Youngsters who are a bit of unfriendly nature and less agreeable in comparison to their peers are likely to have aggressive pets or dogs. Breeds preferred by them would be Bull Terrier, Labrador Retriever, Collie, German Sheperd etc. It’s a common belief that people with such dogs are more interested to show off and impress the ladies. However, the study does not suggest any strong connection between the two but could be about their less agreeable social standing. As per Dr. Vincent Egan a lead researcher on this study has stated that owners of aggressive dogs are anti-social show offs but not committed to delinquent acts.

So, the next time you find a guy standing in the park with a German Sheperd, a Boxer or a Bull Terrier, you know what to judge about his personality. On the other hand, what do you have to say if you see him with a Labrador or a Mastiff? Else, how about a Chihuahua or a Poodle! J

Dos and Don’ts for Single Moms

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Dos and Don’ts for Single MomsI know someone who is a single Mother and I would admit this that, life has been a tough challenge for her. Single parenting can be one of the toughest challenges a woman has to endure, however at the same time can be rewarding too. People had different stories to talk about her when she took this decision in her life of separating with her mate and going forward to take the onus of upbringing her two kids. Raising two kids all alone is nothing like sleeping on a bed of roses, especially in a city like London. Some people showed sympathetic feelings towards her, while some told her about the difficulties of being a single parent. Well, in spite of all this, her spirits were not dampened; in fact she took things in a positive note and embraced the situation rather than cribbing, crying and creating an unhealthy atmosphere for all. Thus, today she an excellent example for the ones, who are planning to be one, however is hesitant to take this decision, thinking about its consequences.

Spending some time with her and keeping a close watch on her, I’ve just realized a few things that every single parent can benefit in the upbringing of the children.

Be a Companion to them

Kids being raised without their fathers face extra challenges have certain extra behavioral or character traits in common, especially the teenage boys. Therefore, it is important for a single Mom to keep an eye for these qualities, so that you help them to overcome it and make them into a confident and happy adult. As per my research that such kids are left with feelings like being incomplete, fatherless, left out, lacking identity and loneliness. Being a single Mom, you will have to be your kid’s best friend to shun away those feelings embedded in them. Only by being a strong companion can you let the child feel that sense of belonging. Thus, you have to give your 100% towards the kids.

Talk to them everyday

Being a single Mother, you certainly will be caught with loads of work and would be busy most of the time, however it is a must that you will have to spend time everyday to talk to your kids. Even if you are dying to sleep at the end of the day, you will have to listen to what they have got to say. As they will need someone to share their issues and you are the best person in their life.

Practice what you preach

Do not expect the kids to just accept the things that you preach or whatever they learn at school. Instead, set examples for them. You will have to show them why it is important to have manners or why is it necessary to be disciplined. You will have to practice what you preach.

Follow the eat together rule religiously

Yes, you need to sit down with your kid at least for one meal in a day. It is a bit difficult to accompany in the day meals, therefore make it must to sit down for dinners. Probably, on weekends you can make things even better by giving more time and meeting up with all their food demands. Do not make it a quick eating session but talk, bond and cherish the moments

Appreciation

This is compulsory. You will have to appreciate them for their work. You can team them along with yourself for small chores that you do at home like laying the table, cleaning the shelf and at the end of it all you got to appreciate them in any way that could be through words, sometime may be fulfilling any of their wish. At the same time, do not bow down in front of their unnecessary demands for good parenting does not mean to agree to all their fancies.

Good Luck!

Stop Animal Abuse

Monday, December 24th, 2012

Stop Animal AbuseCruelty towards animals has prevailed from a long time. One reason for this long time existence of animal abuse is no strict laws to protect animals and strict penalties for animal abusers. However, the emergence of internet has educated many around the world regarding the abusive practices towards animals. Therefore, now we have numerous options to come ahead and stop this menace happening on earth.

Every year, millions of animals are injected with chemicals, poisoned, strangled, buried alive, run down by horrible machines and buried alive. It is really sad to know that, things like this are happening with animals. We have not created animals and nor are we sharing our breath with them, therefore we have no right to take away their lives.

The global leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals every year to use their skins and hides to make products like belts, shoes, bags and jackets. These animals have to undergo the horrors of factory farming like castration, dehorning, branding, extreme crowding, tail docking and also cruel treated during transport and slaughter.

With the decline in production of dairy cows their skin is used for making leather. Also, hides of calves are used for making veal and high-priced calfskin.

Leather produced in U.S. mostly comes from the skin of cattle and calves. However, animals like horses, sheep, goats and pigs are slaughtered for meat and also their skin are used for leather. The other species hunted frequently for their skins are zebras, wild buffalos, kangaroos, sharks, dolphins, seals, elephants, crocodiles, sharks and a lot more.

Millions of Kangaroos are slaughtered every year as their skins are considered to be the prime material for soccer shoes. Snakes are skinned alive with the belief that live flaying makes leather supple. Other exotic animals like alligators are factory farmed for their skin and meat. Alligators can live up to 60 years but farmed alligators are butchered before the age of 2 i.e. as soon as they are 4 to 6 feet in length. They are beaten to death in farms with hammers. In fact, in their unconscious state they itself they are skinned. Alongside, with the use of leather, a lot many animals are harmed in a day to day basis. Not only by animal skin, but animals are tortured through various ways. In circuses animals are tortured to play and perform in front of the audience. On streets also, we see animals are being beaten up. In zoos, too animals have to stay as though an imprisonment to life.

What can we do?

To avoid animals from being slaughtered, we can use alternatives to leather that include products like cotton, rubber, canvas and synthetics. Avoid buying things coats made of fur. Do not buy products tested on animals. In fact, you can even a drop a note in the company stating that you will not buy products tested on animals and share the information with the other customers too. When enough people do this, automatically they will get a drop in sales. Stop visiting zoos and circuses and also discourage others from doing so. This can create a bigger impact gradually. By starting off with these little things, we can make a huge difference in the lives of animals that suffer in the hands of humans. Also, there are laws created for the welfare of animals, therefore if you see anyone violating these laws, you can go on to take legal action against them.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Therefore, save the planet!
