Heartwarming Illustrations Showing Love Exists In The Smallest Things Of Life

Heartwarming Illustrations Showing Love Exists In The Smallest Things Of Life

Affected by movies and social media, many of us fantasize that romance is about extravagant enjoyments and splendid expressions. In view of this trend, the talented artist Philippa Rice creates some simple but beautiful comics to remind us that love exists in every corner of our life. Instead of trying very hard to find love, what we should do is to feel the smallest things that we do with our loved ones. Here are the things that you may be familiar with in your relationship:

Sometimes, love means doing small things together like brewing coffee in the morning.

1. kitchen

    Staying next to each other without doing anything special is satisfactory to you.

    2. room

      Sleeping together and hugging each other give you the greatest sense of comfort.

      3. sleep

        You feel carefree and are not afraid of showing your true side to your loved one.

          Even doing household tasks like food shopping is no longer boring to you.

            Hugging each other has become your favourite habit.

            6. hugging

              Love gives you the inspiration to come up with creative ideas to kill time.

              7. dinner

                When you feel blue, someone will always give you support.

                8. rain

                  You’ll easily feel excited about the smallest things in life.

                  9. letter

                    The best entertainment for you is reading on bed after a tiring day.

                    10. reading

                      Building furniture is no longer a chore for you because you know it’s a process of building your home.

                      11. furniture

                        You may ask some silly questions and making unreasonable requests but you know your loved one won’t mind you doing so.

                        12. question

                          You feel blessed that you can cook and enjoy meals together every night.

                          13. cooking

                            Your loved one’s problems have become yours as well.

                            14. trouble

                              Love is also about sharing what you experience throughout the day before you go to bed.

                                And this is what will definitely happen when you sit on the sofa:

                                16. cuddling

                                  You are never tired of looking into each other’s eyes because you can always find the most beautiful universe there.

                                  17. cafe

                                    In winter, no matter how strong the wind is, your hearts stay warm because you hold each other’s hand tight.

                                    18. wind

                                      Love makes you humble. You know when you need to say sorry.

                                      everyday-love-comics-illustrations-soppy-philippa-rice-111

                                        You love curling up like a cat on your loved one’s lap.

                                        20. lap

                                          Love gives you the courage to explore new things.

                                          21. park

                                            You love each other. But you still have some little arguments.

                                            22. compromise

                                              But that’s not a big deal because you forgive each other very soon after the arguments.

                                              23. window

                                                The most important thing is you do not forget to seize the moment.

                                                  7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

                                                  7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

                                                  Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

                                                  But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

                                                  If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

                                                  1. Limit the time you spend with them.

                                                  First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

                                                  Advertising

                                                  In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

                                                  Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

                                                  2. Speak up for yourself.

                                                  Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

                                                  3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

                                                  This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

                                                  Advertising

                                                  But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

                                                  4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

                                                  Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

                                                  This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

                                                  Why else would they be sharing this with you?

                                                  Advertising

                                                  5. Change the subject.

                                                  When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

                                                  Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

                                                  6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

                                                  Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

                                                  I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

                                                  Advertising

                                                  You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

                                                  Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

                                                  7. Leave them behind.

                                                  Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

                                                  If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

                                                  That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
