I’m feeling rather stagnant in my life right now. It’s not that I don’t have great friends and family and even though I’m not in a relationship I do my share of dating but I still feel like there’s something missing. What should I do?
Half the fun is finding the missing piece, as it can be anything you want it to be. You didn’t mention your career so perhaps you need to learn a few new skills or parlay the ones you have into finding a new job. Otherwise there are many options to consider to help change up your daily, from volunteering to taking a class to redecorating your home. Endless opportunities await… all you need to do is check them out and pick the one you like best!
My husband and I have lived in the same home for five years and I’m ready for a change of address. The problem is that he has no desire to move and even less of a desire to change things up within the house. Where can we find some middle ground?
One of the many joys marriage brings is the process of discovering compromise. Your combined determination can find it, starting with you recalling why you fell in love with your home in the first place. Rekindling the romance with your space is a possible solution. The next step would be taking a couple field trips- one is to visit a few open houses to see what other homes are available at your price range. The other is a trip to a design center, allowing you both to see the latest in decor trends. One of these is sure to give you both some inspiration, leading you straight to the middle ground you seek.
I have a friend who, over the last two years, has morphed into a pretty crappy friend. I’ve tolerated her attitude and negativity for a while and I’m at my breaking point. I hate to see a friendship of such length (10 years) go bust, but I just can’t continue it.
Longevity of a friendship isn’t a good enough reason to continue if the relationship is no longer mutually pleasing. Sadly even the best and longest of friendships sometimes go south and when that happens it’s necessary for a temporary or maybe permanent exit. You never know what the future brings as this friend might change their ways but for now it sounds like you need to distance yourself from this person- and that’s ok.
