Love begets love. Hate begets hate. It seems everywhere we turn there is another attack on innocent lives. What isn’t being looked at is the why. And when the why is ignored, a perpetual cycle of attack and revenge ensues.
Marriage is not one size fits all. Our culture dictates what marriage should look like based on popular beliefs, hollywood Rom Coms, and the fairy tales we are fed from childhood. The recent Ashley Madison leak is proof that an outdated model of monogamy in a marriage is in desperate need of discussion and reform.
Do you ever find yourself complying to those around you just because it's easier than standing up for what you want or need? It could be as simple as agreeing to go to a restaurant that your friend likes (but that you hate), or watching a film that you are not particularly excited about seeing.
Have you ever had a job or a relationship that made you feel more complete —only to find out that it actually didn’t? We all have an idea of what we want in life based on accumulation of stories and beliefs told by family, friends and society.
