Tips on How To Support Others

Showing support towards others shouldn’t be as hard as most people try to make it seem. Some people would rather see someone struggle instead of helping out at least a little bit. I guess society has most people scared to show genuine support towards another person because you’re helping “competition.” Why can’t everybody win and help each other out? Hopefully, the tips that are shared in this article will motivate you to start supporting others more. 

Show your Support

Share a person post on social media: Whenever you see someone asking for support or help on social media see what you can do to help them. Most of the time a person will ask you to share or simply like their post. Try sharing and liking their post even if you’re not interested in what they are posting maybe your followers are though. The only time you shouldn’t worry about sharing their post is if it’s something illegal, inappropriate, or something you’re against. It’s not hard at all to share a post. You share everything else on your timeline anyway!

Show Interest in their content or product: If you like a product or content someone post make sure you bring it to their attention that you like what they are posting. That can help them keep sharing stuff you like. Also, they will appreciate your support. Your support can make a positive effect on a person. 

Show support and you will get support back: Have you ever noticed once you show support towards others they will do the same to you? Sometimes you should make the first move to get yourself noticed. Once you catch the person attention then they will automatically go to your profile and see what you’re all about. Basically, you get yourself some exposure through socializing on social media or maybe even talking in person because they may be interested in what you’re doing.

Let’s start supporting others more. I challenge you to share one of your Facebook friends, IG, or Twitter followers post if they are trying to promote their business products, website content, or party etc… Your one or more shares can make a difference. Before you go answer this question why do you think people make it difficult to show support to others?

5 Ways to Deal With a Nightmare

Nightmares come and go when they feel like it. The worst part about it is the fact we can’t control when it happens. It leaves us waking up in fear and not wanting to fall back to sleep. In this article, you will read a few tips that may help you if you are having nightmares.

Remind yourself it’s not real: Dreams can feel so real especially nightmares. It’s important for us to try to remind yourself in the dream that it’s not real. That reminder can calm you down a bit in your nightmare.

Pray: This is a tip you don’t have to do if you don’t want to. From my experience, I prayed to God to get me out of some of my nightmares and I woke up out of the bad dream. Once I start doing that it amazed me how prayer actually worked. It may some crazy to you but trust me it worked.

Don’t eat junk food: This is one of the most common tips. In case you didn’t know eating junk food before bed can cause nightmares. It may sound weird but it’s true. Crazy how food can affect how we dream. Just like any food can affect our mood. I believe it may be a myth though. Here are articles about junk food causing bad dreams:

Use a dreamcatcher: Most people like to have dream catchers above their bed to catch their bad dreams. It’s a way of protecting you while you’re sleeping. Indians were a firm believer of the dream catchers. Even though I have one I never experience it taking away my bad dreams. Everyone is different though. You still should try it out.

Sleep with a Bible: If you carry a Bible with you then you should sleep with it under your pillow. My grandmother told me how she use to put her Bible under her pillow to keep her safe. I always thought it was clever.

After reading this article, I hope you find some tips that will work out for you. If you do try some of the tips share your experience in the comment section. What are your thoughts on nightmares?

Why a Person Grows Bitter Inside

A person doesn’t wake up one day and say “oh I will be bitter today” it’s always a story behind a bitter person. Yes, it’s hard to see past the individual bitterness but take your time to look deeper into why they act that way. One of the main reasons they may feel resentful is from some type of hurt they endure from the past or present. Not everyone is forgiving when they experience a heartbreaking situation. The happiest person in the world could go through a hurtful situation that may turn them into a bitter person. Like I mention not too long ago a hurt person grows bitter from past or present experiences.

Let’s say a woman or man went through a relationship where they loved someone wholeheartedly then their significant other cheated on them or does something to cross their loyalty. The man or woman who got crossed never got the apology they deserved or simply chose not to forgive the person who damages them. As days, months, and years went by they kept the pain buried deep in their heart or soul. When a person holds all that pain inside of course they are going to turn into a toxic human being. It’s only so much a person can hold in. Let’s not act like bitterness randomly appears out of nowhere and consume a person. There is a reason behind everything.

Now, think about this scenario a woman name Teresa came up with a business plan that would benefit everyone around the world. Teresa confides in her business partner about the plan. The business partner took her plan and took all the credit for it. Teresa wasn’t too happy about how everything took place. She felt humiliated and stupid for trusting someone with her golden plan. That was a slap in the face. Now she is stuck in a situation with seeing her ex business partner living off the luxuries of the business idea she came up with. No one ever cared about how Teresa felt. So, what do you think she did? Fought to take what was hers then when that didn’t work out she grew a grudge against everyone. That grudge led her to grow bitter inside.

Are you understanding the point I am getting at? As people, we are quick to say someone is bitter or an evil person by nature. Sometimes that is not exactly true. That one bitter person was probably once a good-hearted person until they let their emotions or past experiences take control of their life. No one wants to live a miserable life. Like I mentioned at the beginning of this article I stated, “A person doesn’t wake up one day and say, “oh I will be bitter today.” Just remind yourself to be more understanding with someone. But also, don’t let someone take advantage of you either.

Do you know someone who is bitter inside? Were you understanding with the person or you kept your distance away from them? If you don’t know anyone like this can you answer this question at one point were you bitter inside from a past situation? Feel free to share your story or thoughts in the comment section.

Things You Should Blog About

Before you start reading deeper into this article. I’m not going to give you some bullshit advice (excuse my language). It’s not going to sound cliché either. So, let’s get right into it.

One thing you need to remind yourself is that YOU are in control of what goes on. This is YOUR blog not anybody else stuff.  You can post anything that you choose. Don’t over worry yourself about having a certain “niche” to focus on. I believe that is most of our problem. We get caught up in trying to focus on some certain criteria. It takes away from our creativity and holds us back on expressing how we feel. You will always find yourself thinking “are my readers or subscribers going to like this?” Will they stop reading my content because it’s not what they are expecting to read on my blog? That’s one thing you shouldn’t pressure yourself to worry about.

Normally when you read advice about what should your blog be about. Every person mentions a “niche.” Yeah, a niche is cool to think about and everything but honestly, in my opinion, it’s not too important. Of course, you want people to understand what your website is all about. I completely get that point. Eventually, they will understand what you’re all about. Just go with the flow of things.

When you are first starting out with blogging just create anything that comes to mind. It doesn’t matter one day you’re talking about painting a portrait then the next day you post about walking a dog. As long as it represents topics you enjoy writing about that is all that matters. The main goal of a blog is to write what you are passionate about right? That is why they create certain categories to place things in.

Instead of labeling yourself as a beauty, travel, or fashion blogger. Think of your blog as a simple lifestyle blog. Calling yourself a lifestyle blogger can give you a chance at being versatile on your site. If you are not cool with that like I said before it is YOUR blog. Do whatever you want.

The point I am getting at is when you are in control to bring your creativity to the light. Stop letting minor things hold you back. Especially, if you want to create your own blog. Blogging is a way to express yourself through writing and sharing it with the world. When you stay in tune with being yourself. It will shape your site into the most unique piece of work you ever put together.

If you read this article to the end. What are some challenges do you expect to face when creating blog content? Are you worried your blog won’t be good enough? Share your thoughts in the comment section. If you are already a blogger share some more advice to other bloggers.

Forcing Toxic Relationships

Forcing a toxic relationship becomes a problem when you want to stay knowing that it’s not healthy for you. You need to accept the fact your ex doesn’t want to be with you. Why trap yourself with someone who doesn’t love you? If you stay more than likely they will keep cheating on you. Make your life miserable and distant themselves further away from you. You get what I’m saying?

Just because you are deeply in love with someone or want them to stay in your life forever doesn’t mean they are “the one for you.” It hurts to think about it that way, but you must accept it. If you choose not to accept the truth. Then go ahead and enjoy your miserable life. That’s all you’re going to get out of the relationship you are trying to force.

How many times do you want to get your heart-broken before you finally get it? Yes, I know leaving isn’t easy.  You must fight your weak heart and pull yourself out of the toxic relationship. Staying strong is the only way to get through it. Avoid picking up your phone to text or answer their calls. Block their number and block them on social media. Go out for a little while to have fun and clear your mind. Keep yourself busy with one of your favorite hobbies. You can even try to get a new hobby.

The point I’m trying to make is stop forcing yourself to be with someone who doesn’t love you back. You’re only hurting yourself. Let that toxic relationship GOOOOO! I know love can make you blind but damn how foolish can you be? If something isn’t meant to be it will NEVER work out. Take this piece of advice and start doing what’s best for you.

So, tell me have you ever went through a breakup you never thought you would get out of? If so, share your story in the comment section. I would love to read your story. It may help someone else out.

Rushing into Relationships Isn’t Always a Good Idea

Rushing into relationships isn’t always a good idea. You didn’t take the time to learn the other person’s personality. Did you even figure out what you want out of a relationship before you rushed in one? Maybe you did, and everything worked out fine.

Let’s think about the bad outcome like things didn’t work out. For the first month, you’re in heaven and in love with your partner. Then during the next month, you see how rocky things start to get. The both of you seem to argue about everything under the sun. Your “puppy love” turns into hate towards each other. Everything you planned with the person erases from your mind.

After a while, you start to doubt rushing to get into a relationship with them. You’re even embarrassed that you proved everyone right that told you not to rush things. Relationships aren’t supposed to be rushed. In the beginning, it’s fine to take your time with the person you like. That’s what they have the “talking stage” for.

Give yourself time to enjoy the person before you get fully committed to them. This is the time to chill. The point I’m trying to make is if you’re rushing a relationship with someone. It probably won’t work out. Life is about going with the flow of things. If fate wants you with the person you have feelings for. Then you will end up in a relationship with them.

Best Places to Read

Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect place to read. Most places are so noisy and full of distractions. No one likes to get distracted from a good book right? You’ll read about the best places to read.

Library: The library probably was your first thought also. It’s the perfect place to read because the rules strictly enforce for everyone to be quiet in the building. Another good thing about being at the library to read is that you can stay there for hours.

Bookstore: Even though people come in and out of the bookstore. They have areas where you can relax and read your book. It’s similar to a library, but not as quiet though.

Park: You can always find a quiet and secret spot at a park. There are always benches around so you can sit and chill while you read your book. Even though the park is full of people you still can find a spot to get some peace of quiet to read.

Quiet Room at Home: Take advantage of the quiet time you have at your house. Your room is probably the best place in the house to read a good book. If not, you still have the living room or any other extra room.

On a beach: Hearing the ocean waves and cool breeze will put you in a relaxing mood to read a good book. Make sure you’re not too close to the water though. You wouldn’t want the waves to come wet your spot lol.

After reading this article now it’s easier for you to find a good place to read. Have you read at any of these places before? If so, tell me about your experience. Also, if you have any other places in mind that I didn’t mention feel free to share it in the comment section.

Signs You’re Getting Catfished!

Many people have got catfished at least once in their lifetime. If you haven’t considered yourself lucky! Even though we live in a society where you can discover the signs easily. People still get catfished anyway. Oh yeah, if you’re not familiar with the term catfish I’ll explain it to you. Basically, catfish means a person hiding behind a fake profile. Usually, the person uses someone else pictures on their social media profile. For example, the person can easily search on google to get pictures of a stranger and post it on the fake profile they created. It’s crazy how easy it is to steal someone pictures on the internet.

Here are the signs…

Excuses to not video chat: Nowadays it’s so easy to get a cheap phone with a camera to video chat. You can even buy a cheap webcam from Amazon or your local electronics store. No one should have a problem with video chatting with someone they are interested in. Remember that tip. Yes, sometimes you may get nervous. Eventually, you would get on camera for video chatting.

Pictures look too Professional: When I say pictures look too professional. It’s those high-quality photos that you can tell when someone went to a photographer to get them done. Regular ordinary people don’t have a pile of pictures like that on their profile. Yes, of course, the iPhone 7, 8, and X have high-quality cameras, but you can still tell it came from a phone and not a digital camera. Usually, models, celebrities, and bloggers plus others post professional pictures. I’m not saying you won’t get lucky and those type of people could message you on social media. Sometimes you should look closely at certain things on a personal profile.

Always “moving”: For some reason, a catfish always say they live in one state. Then a couple of months later they live somewhere else. It’s understandable if the person is in the army and move around from place to place. Catfish people always lie about their location.

As long as the internet is still up and running people will continue to get catfished. Hopefully, the tips you read or listen to in the podcast help you watch out for a catfish. Have you ever had an experience with someone catfishing you? If so, how did you feel about it?

When it’s Beautiful Outside Do This…

When it’s beautiful outside you should take advantage of your day. It’s nice to chill in the house but try going out somewhere. Every day isn’t always a beautiful day. I’ll give you a few suggestions on things you should do when it’s beautiful outside.

1) Go to the park: Going out to a park when it’s a beautiful day outside is the best thing you can do. Seeing the beautiful sun shining and chilling at the park will make you feel good. Plus, it’s free to visit the park lol.

2) Take a ride around town: Ride with your windows down and cruise through your town or city.  Riding through town will give you something to do. You get to see what’s going on like events or see locals shopping and doing other things.

3) Have a picnic: It doesn’t matter if you have the picnic in your backyard, at a park, or anywhere else you can think of. It’s a simple outing that will make your day better.

4) Read a book: You can chill on your porch or patio and read a good book outside. It helps to keep your mind clear while you’re enjoying your book. Especially if you live somewhere quiet without any distractions. You can thank me for this piece of advice later.

5) Relax in your backyard: Nothing is better than relaxing at your own house in your own yard. You don’t have to worry about anyone bothering you. It’s your personal space. Also, you can chill in your backyard as long as you want.

6) Have a BBQ: Having a BBQ is the best thing to do when it’s a beautiful day. You get to smell good food cooking on the grill. Plus, enjoy your scenery of how nice it feels and looks outside. I’m sure your friends or family would be happy to join the BBQ with you. Having a BBQ + beautiful day + spending time with family and friends = perfect combination.

Now that you’ve read a list of things you could do when it’s beautiful outside. Are you going to try them out? If so, which idea caught your interest? If you thought of any other good ideas share them in the comment section.
