Dating Relationships

Physical and emotional abuse in relationships is often a difficult topic to talk about because many people suffer in silence because of it. In my newest conversation, I try to address this with the hope that people can seek out help or provide support to those who are suffering.


Please share your thoughts and opinions on this topic. What are the warning signs of physical and emotional abuse? What can family and friends do to help someone who is suffering from such abuse?

World News Events: How do they (or should they) affect you?

There is an old saying which states, "Out of sight, out of mind," to indicate that those things that we can't readily see are often far away from us in mind. This could be true of new stories around the world; however, that said, if we really look of the events that even take place in distant lands, they tend to have a ripple effect in our lives---events that still touch our lives directly or indirectly.

What current event stories are taking place today, either in your country or in distant lands, that do or should make us reflect or even take action for the betterment of yourself or others?

Cosmetic Surgery: Sometimes a need or just an expensive want?

We often see news stories about people---famous or not---undergoing plastic or cosmetic surgery for any number of reasons to improve their appearance. Any number of reasons can be cited for doing so, and the debate on this topic stretches very long: on the one hand, opponents often say that people are just being vain and lack self-confidence in their appearance while proponents argue that such surgeries are often needed for medical and even psychological reasons.

What do you think about this topic? Have you ever---even remotely in you mind---considered having some form of cosmetic surgery? Do you think there can be valid reasons for having it?
