New Year’s Rut

I’ve found myself in a bit of a rut since I got back home from my New Year’s holiday. And if I’m honest, it came as a bit of a surprise, especially considering that I haven’t gotten the New Year’s blues in a while, coupled with the fact that I had such an amazing time while I was gone.

9 Money Affirmations to Attract Financial Abundance in Your Life

I don’t remember what exactly we were talking about when someone said to me, “How do you have money to do all that?” And without much thought I responded with honesty, “I just attract money.” As I continued to explain how I afford certain things, I realized that I was rattling off money affirmations.

Here’s What It Really Means If You Have an Anxious Attachment Style

Anxious attachment style is one of the four attachment styles that are based on how people interact with others in their relationships. But what does having an anxious attachment style really mean?

People with anxious attachment styles are often preoccupied with the idea of losing their partner and are always fearful that their partner will abandon them. They often feel insecure and unworthy of their partner’s attention and find themselves constantly wanting to ‘check’ on them or get reassurance that they are still in the relationship. While most people don’t want to admit being on this spectrum, having an anxious attachment style is more common than you may think and there are even ways to move from an insecure attachment style to secure. Understanding attachment styles can help you recognize signs, causes, and how to fix it.

When it comes to dating, women often place men in two categories: the right man and the wrong man.

The right man, we suggest, is kind, consistent, and takes our feelings into consideration while the wrong man, we project as being selfish, unsupportive, erratic, and emotionally unavailable.

One of the most fundamental parts of a relationship, I believe, is a feeling that everything that goes wrong in a relationship can be fixed. I aspire to what is known as a growth mindset in people and relationships, which is the idea that inevitably, people can change and things will work out despite problems they have and that couples can come out stronger for it. After all, this is why we get into relationships in the first place: to be with somebody who will support us unconditionally and help us through the tough times.

However, what happens when we start to blame our partner for everything that goes wrong in our relationship? What if we start to see them as the source of all of our problems? This is where the blame game starts to take over, and it can be a very dangerous road to go down.

How Blame Sabotages Relationships: Understanding Attribution Theory

Attribution theory is a psychological concept that helps us to understand how people explain events in their lives. There are two types of attribution: internal cause/dispositional and external cause/situational. Dispositional attribution is the belief that a person’s behavior is due to their personality or character traits. Situational attribution is the belief that a person’s behavior is due to outside factors. Both attribution types can be used to explain behavior in (dating/romantic) relationships, but each attribution type is most commonly used in specific situations.

Doing THIS Can Sabotage Even the Best Relationship

Lying, cheating, manipulating — they’re all bad and can lead to couples going their separate ways, but these things are usually done TO us and are beyond our control. There’s another action, however, that can lead couples down a spiraling staircase and ruin even the best relationship.
