Why Do Single People Give Best Relationship Advice? // Zakaj dajejo samski ljudje najboljše nasvete (o odnosih)?

Read in EnglishBeri v slovenščini

Yup. I’m the one. The friend that is always single but gives great relationship advice. Why is that? How come I give best advice on a topic I, by logic, shouldn’t be an expert in?
We teach best what we most need to learn.”
This sentence right here. This is the truth. I’m actually really good at reading people and their situations, but how come I’m blind as a bat when it comes to relationships in my life? The answer is quite simple actually; when you’re in love, have a crush, the part of your brain that is in charge of good decision making, shuts down. This is why we become fearless when we’re in love – not because we’re actually brave, but because our brain doesn’t recognize the stupidity of what we’re about to do. You’re also flooded by different hormones causing you to feel the same ‘happiness’ you feel when you take drugs – basically love makes you an addict. This is why we feel like we’re addicted to a person sometimes – because we actually are. Basic…

Why Do People Settle In Their Twenties: 6 Ways to Be Happy About Being Single In You Twenties

Do you have any idea what a pain in the ass is being single in mid-twenties? Especially for a girl. Especially for a girl in Slovenia. Most of my generation is married, or engaged, or have a kid or two, or they are in a serious relationship. And all you get from them is pity looks and shit advice like: ‘don’t worry, you’ll find someone’ – doesn’t this sentence just piss you off?

The thing is – I’ve always watched American and English shows and movies, and it seemed like this kind of thing happens when you’re thirty.

What is it with people my age in my country? Is it because of a different culture, different environment we live in? Is it because of tradition (our parents were married by our age)? What is it that makes the majority of people in my country want to marry and have kids at 23, 24, 25 years of age? It must be something in the tap water.

And, it’s not like your family, or your country makes it easier for you. We are bombarded by every single media – every single year may I add …

13 Worst Things a Boy Had Ever Said to Me

I’ve dated this boy once who tried to erase me.  He tried to erase everything I was and make me completely anew. And the worst part; I let him.
I am still angry with myself to this day for being such an idiot. For letting him hurt me, for not protecting myself – the only person you can always count on to have your back.
I hate the way I was at that time. I remember looking into the mirror one day and not recognizing myself.
They say every girl has a princess in their childhood – I had Xena, the warrior princess. I never wanted to be a damsel in distress, to wear pretty dresses, or to act in a way only to be liked by others; I wanted to be a strong woman like Xena.
And when I looked at myself in the mirror that day, I knew I failed.
      1.DON’T HAVE A LOUD OPINION ON THINGS. Basically, I’ve always argued the things I stand on. I am passionate, and yes sometimes I wave my hands around and my voice gets a bit louder. He said – I am ‘angry’, I sound ‘angry’, and apparently, when I talk ab…

Stop Saying You’re Fine: 6 Worst Advice about Mental Health

Why are we the generation that has the most issues with our mental health? Is it the because of the way we live? Are we overly sensitive? Has it become more acceptable to ‘come out’ with a mental health issue? Or do psychiatrists simply see something wrong in everyone?
I think it’s a little of everything.
Today you can go to a psychiatrist and he’ll diagnose you with some sort of mental disorder in the first half hour he listens to you, the least he’ll do – he’ll tell you you’re stressed (at least in Slovenia). And then he’ll give you some prescriptive medication and send you home.
I honestly hate the way our generation deals with depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and other health issues. We buy books in bulk to tell us how to feel, how to act, and how to look to be happy. Stop being so negative. Only think positive thoughts. Pretend and it will become a reality.
All good and fine advice, but sadly, it doesn’t work every time.
Self-proclaimed new-age gurus for happiness see any negat…
