10 Things Only People Who Are Confused With Their Relationships Can Relate To

Love is probably the deepest feeling in life, it is also an experience that is like no other. From happy cries to sad cries and everything in between, love and relationships teach us how to live life better and in the process become a kinder, gentler and a more understanding person. But love or a relationship for that matter isn’t a walk in the park, it isn’t just about the flying kisses and the romantic outings, it is also about the fights, the misunderstandings and how you learn to respect another person while not losing your own. So if you are stressed out or misunderstood, this is for you. Here are 10 things only people who are confused with their relationships can relate to.

1. You Love Them To Bits

    You love them, you want the best for them and actually want things to work for the both of you. There is always love, even if its deep down somewhere, you guys love each other and probably that’s why you care and hence are confused in the first place. So love is a given.

    2. You Hate Them Too

      Well, this is indeed the bone of contention why you love them but a part of you really hates a certain part of them. You cannot stand it, you cannot take it, but you still love them.

      3. You Aren’t Sure

        You aren’t sure of…. “what” is what you have to decide. But you aren’t sure of something and you cannot decide what it is.

        4. You Are Happily Unhappy

          You are happy, you like the little, cute and random things that happen around you. Dogs make you smile, babies make you cry and ice cream always works but heck with it all, there’s something that’s bothering but you really don’t know. You are basically unhappily happy.

          5. They’re Not Bad People

            They aren’t too bad or is it about you? You are okay with what you have but still not really okay with where you are.

            6. You Aren’t Sure If You Are Faking It Or Not

              You are putting up a show you aren’t too sure about, it’s not like you are happy nor is it like you are sad.

              7. Your Friends Aren’t Too Happy, But Just Let It Be

                They’re pretty sure you cannot decide on anything right and they don’t want you to any more, especially when it comes to choosing a partner.

                8. You Don’t Want To Change But You Want Change

                  You really want things to change but aren’t actually willing to change. Well, nobody’s perfect and so are relationships but the trick is to learn, evolve and keep it going. I isn’t easy but you really need to figure out what you really want, what you need to change and how you can evolve into being somebody who can be the change.

                  9. You Press Them When You Shouldn’t

                    You talk all day all night. You can be romantic, but when there’s something more pressing at heart, you shouldn’t be pressing everywhere else. But that’s what you do!

                    10. You Don’t Know What’s Next

                      So what’s next is a question you ask yourself all too often. It isn’t like you don’t love him or her but are confused about the future, you have to sort it out, you have to interact and understand what’s going on in their head too. And for yourself, you have the answer, sit, think and decide because being confused in a relationship sucks more than not being in one. But it is good to be here, to be confused because that helps you clarify and decide what’s best for you.

                      10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

                      10 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone And Enjoy Taking Risks

                      The ability to take risks by stepping outside your comfort zone is the primary way by which we grow. But we are often afraid to take that first step.

                      In truth, comfort zones are not really about comfort, they are about fear. Break the chains of fear to get outside. Once you do, you will learn to enjoy the process of taking risks and growing in the process.

                      Here are 10 ways to help you step out of your comfort zone and get closer to success:

                      1. Become aware of what’s outside of your comfort zone

                      What are the things that you believe are worth doing but are afraid of doing yourself because of the potential for disappointment or failure?

                      Draw a circle and write those things down outside the circle. This process will not only allow you to clearly identify your discomforts, but your comforts. Write identified comforts inside the circle.

                      2. Become clear about what you are aiming to overcome

                      Take the list of discomforts and go deeper. Remember, the primary emotion you are trying to overcome is fear.

                      How does this fear apply uniquely to each situation? Be very specific.

                      Are you afraid of walking up to people and introducing yourself in social situations? Why? Is it because you are insecure about the sound of your voice? Are you insecure about your looks?

                      Or, are you afraid of being ignored?

                      3. Get comfortable with discomfort

                      One way to get outside of your comfort zone is to literally expand it. Make it a goal to avoid running away from discomfort.

                      Let’s stay with the theme of meeting people in social settings. If you start feeling a little panicked when talking to someone you’ve just met, try to stay with it a little longer than you normally would before retreating to comfort. If you stay long enough and practice often enough, it will start to become less uncomfortable.

                      4. See failure as a teacher

                      Many of us are so afraid of failure that we would rather do nothing than take a shot at our dreams.

                      Begin to treat failure as a teacher. What did you learn from the experience? How can you take that lesson to your next adventure to increase your chance of success?

                      Many highly successful people failed plenty of times before they succeeded. Here’re some examples:

                      5. Take baby steps

                      Don’t try to jump outside your comfort zone, you will likely become overwhelmed and jump right back in.

                      Take small steps toward the fear you are trying to overcome. If you want to do public speaking, start by taking every opportunity to speak to small groups of people. You can even practice with family and friends.

                      Take a look at this article on how you can start taking baby steps:

                      6. Hang out with risk takers

                      There is no substitute for this step. If you want to become better at something, you must start hanging out with the people who are doing what you want to do and start emulating them. (Here’re 8 Reasons Why Risk Takers Are More Likely To Be Successful).

                      Almost inevitably, their influence will start have an effect on your behavior.

                      7. Be honest with yourself when you are trying to make excuses

                      Don’t say “Oh, I just don’t have the time for this right now.” Instead, be honest and say “I am afraid to do this.”

                      Don’t make excuses, just be honest. You will be in a better place to confront what is truly bothering you and increase your chance of moving forward.

                      8. Identify how stepping out will benefit you

                      What will the ability to engage in public speaking do for your personal and professional growth? Keep these potential benefits in mind as motivations to push through fear.

                      9. Don’t take yourself too seriously

                      Learn to laugh at yourself when you make mistakes. Risk taking will inevitably involve failure and setbacks that will sometimes make you look foolish to others. Be happy to roll with the punches when others poke fun.

                      10. Focus on the fun

                      Enjoy the process of stepping outside your safe boundaries. Enjoy the fun of discovering things about yourself that you may not have been aware of previously.
