mastilashkari. Why Are Modern Relationships Falling Apart?
We're not ready. We're not

Why Are Modern Relationships Falling Apart? We're not ready. We're not prepared for the sacrifices, for the give-and-take, and have stopped accepting unconditional love. We're not willing to invest all that it takes to make a relationship work. Were drawn to instant-gratification and we want everything easy. We're quick to quit. And, a single obstacle will make us crumble to our feet. We don't let love grow and we let go before time. #relationships

We have become obsessed with the idea of living a lavish life. Everyone wants to be desirable, to buy the million dollar mansion, to win the popularity contest, to fall in love, to have the mind-blowing sex and to have the ideal relationships. But, not everyone is willing and prepared to do what it takes to achieve their purpose and goals. And, a lot of times that means being okay with the idea of not fitting in. #normalisboring

mastilashkari. As holiday Hallmark happily-ever-after movies and commercials start to

As holiday Hallmark happily-ever-after movies and commercials start to engulf our lives, remember that dysfunctional families have and are still the standards of society. In reality, divorce rates are note-worthy, trauma, abuse, neglect, disappointments, or simple miscommunications are the norms. And the messages we are accumulating from the sources around are misleading. One of the stressors of the holiday season is having unrealistic expectations about how a "normal" family functions and commercial-perfect family images can make you feel like an outsider.  People have a hard time accepting their families' dysfunctions because of societal, cultural, and environmental illustrations that are suited for the better good of a successful advertising campaign. Believe it or not, you're normal by being dysfunctional. Your dysfunctional families are a part of your strength and who you have become because of their madness. And, what you see and face is as real as life could get, so embrace it. Remember that the secret to happiness is to not extra mashed-potatoes. The secret to happiness is pizza with extra cheese, long-walks, tripled laughter, the ability to laugh at your misery, and the capability to love and forgive without measure. So here are some tips and tricks to remember for the next couple of days: 1. Accept your reality and don't expect change 2. Don't expect praise or validation 3. Stay away from conversions that are triggering or emotionally draining. Just remember Dodgers are there for a reason and Colin Kaepernick is still not part of NFL (poor guy, I love him, talk about him) 5. Do not abandon yourself, your needs, or your boundaries. 6. You don't need to feel guilty for needing a  walk out of the party 7. It's okay if things are overwhelming and you feel the need to leave 8. You do not need to go back to your old ways to keep the peace 9. Spend quality time with the kids

Research shows that expressing gratitude is good for your mental health. It increases happiness and decreases depression. It also enhances empathy and reduces aggression. It promotes social interactions and fosters new relationships. Gratitude counteracts other toxic emotions, such as envy, resentment, victimization, and cynicism. It not only reduces stress, but research indicates that it may also play a major role in overcoming trauma. #gratitude #thanksgivingdinner

The more anger toward the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving the present. And, remember, letting go isn’t about having ability to forget the past- it’s about having the wisdom and strength to embrace the present. #letgoofthepast #sundayservice

Life is too short not to do what you love. You are meant to do great things in this world. Oftentimes people get stuck in their comfort zone because of fear that they will fail. The fear of the unknown. Having a dream is great, but nothing will ever come of it if you don't create goals and take action. #mindset

Several notable pieces of research have suggested that shortness is, if not the most desirable body size, an effective defense against some of the most damaging bodily disorders and conditions. From blood clots to depression, the asserted advantages are many. 1. Being short means you're less likely to develop blood clots 2. If you are short, you are likely to live longer 3. Being short carries a reduced risk of cancer 4. Short people are less likely to encounter stressful situations 5. Being short puts you at lower risk of heat exhaustion or sunstroke So the next time you feel like you've pulled the short straw in life, stand as tall as you can and remember that being petite has its perks. And don’t forget how cute we look even when we’re angry! 💕 #shortpeopleproblems #shortpeople

When people show you who they are, believe them. Even if you think that the girl/guy, the kindness, the passion, the anger, the abuse, and the jealousy, is not a part of them. The positive or the negative attributes, believe them,  they chose for you to recognize them in that position. That is the person they wanted to be to you. #believeinyou

mastilashkari. People who think their opinions are superior to others are most prone

People who think their opinions are superior to others are most prone to overestimating their relevant knowledge and ignoring chances to learn more. Psychological research shows that criticism and insults are five times more powerful than compliments. That means if you want to keep your relationships flourishing, you need to have five positive interactions to make up for every negative one. Now imagine the agony of trying to have five positive interactions with a toxic person. Harvard Business School professors calculated the damage of hiring a toxic employee in comparison to the value of hiring a superstar, they found that adding a toxic-member to the team will actually cost twice as much as hiring one A-player will earn. Taken together, the evidence shows that even minimal interaction with negative people can damage your performance and happiness. Therefore, it’s very important for you to ignore energy-sucking toxic people. If you’re going to ask for a piece of advice or listen to someone’s feedback make sure they’re getting their butt kicked and that they are determined to learn, to grow and to excel from their experiences. #mindset

Life is happening as you wait for Friday, for that someone to fall in love with, for that big promotion and for that person to return where you can finally be happy. Life is happening, and happiness can only be achieved by making the best of the moment. #hobokennj

Be okay with the fact that some people will hate you, some people dislike you, some people like you, some people want you, some are forgetting you, and some people adore you. And the ones who have chosen to admire you will be the ones that will support and love you. #relationshipgoal

Everything happens on a mental level before it manifests on the external and physical level. That is why it's imperative for us to accept and to have a positive perception of ourselves. To believe in ourselves, no matter the external circumstances, to strengthen our perceivings about who we are and to visualize our highest self, to start showing up like him/her every day.
