10 Reasons Why Girls Don’t Trust Guys

Reasons Why Girls Don't Trust Guys

men in bar

It’s normal to hear a woman saying she doesn’t trust a man in general. Trust is not easy and it does not come naturally. It is earned not just after a single action but a series of actions. It also takes more than just being a good and honest person. Girls are notorious over-thinkers, so it is really tough to please them to trust guys. Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes. Sometimes, or should I say most of the time, their instincts about something is always right. That is why, once you break the bridge, you will never have a chance to cross to her life ever again.

Most women are having a hard time trusting men because of various reasons. After a heartbreak, they became cynical about love and thought as if it is something worthless. They came to think that love is like gravity, which causes things to drop erratically that the more you toss it away, the more it falls. And despite the pleasure it gives, it is a canister filled with blissful and excruciating memories stuck in a place where nobody wants to dredge up those throbbing past.

Easy as it may sound but it is not that quick to gain a woman’s trust. It takes consistency in honesty and sincerity. Thus, throughout this article, allow me to share some ideas about why girls don’t easily trust boys.

10 Struggles Only Single Moms Understand

Struggles Only Single Moms Understand

baby and parent

Being a parent is one of the most difficult parts of our lives. It comes with a great responsibility of raising a child. It is a task that is typically shared by two people: a husband and wife. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to find a person who would stick with her to share the load. A single mother has to face a new life with a responsibility twice as much as a typical mother with a partner does.

In a society where marriage or the communion between the husband and wife is religiously required, single moms are often misunderstood. But in reality, due to their big sacrifices and efforts to raise their child or children alone, we cannot deny that these single moms can also be called super moms and deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.

To enlighten people and help them understand what we have been through, here are 10 struggles of being a single mom that everyone should understand.

Alarming Signs You Need To Take a Break from Work

break from workplace mess

Most people find fulfillment and personal satisfaction when they are able to be the best in their chosen field. Some would even confidently assert that focusing on work and spending your physical and mental energy solely on your career goals should be the only way to be successful. However, they fail to mention that to make this possible, you have to take other aspects of your life for granted – especially your health.

Workaholics agree that they spend a larger percentage of their day meeting deadlines and beating their personal records on the number of hours they spend at the office. As ideal as these may sound, many studies proved that working more than what your body can handle is obviously unhealthy not only physically but also mentally and emotionally.
