Family Isn’t Always Everything and Can be Toxic to Your Love Relationships

Family Isn’t Always Everything and Can be Toxic to Your Love Relationships

Dear Sybersue discusses how difficult family dynamics can be sometimes and how much of a negative impact it can have on your personal life when there is continual drama.

You can keep trying to make things right but constantly having to deal with unhealthy family dysfunction, abandonment or alienation takes a big toll on your heart and self worth.

This causes a boomerang effect on many other decisions you make on a day to day basis which can become a big problem! It can also interfere with your love relationships and your confidence.

Family doesn’t always have to mean “blood related” and there are other loving people you can surround yourself with. ❤

Holidays or special occasions don’t have to be lonely if you have lost loved ones or have become estranged with family members.  You are not alone as there are many other people dealing with this same scenario.

Don’t get caught in a vicious circle of “living with the toxic drama” because you will never be able to get away from the toll this takes on your well being. So many people think they have to just accept this behavior because it’s family. I disagree if it is causing you to be unbalanced and very unhappy.

The more you put yourself into this unloving environment the more you will dwell on it. This will become the foundation of your soul. You will always feel lost and unaccepted.

You are not defined by who your family is or how they act!

Surround yourself with others who have an open heart and do not spend time with people who shut you out. I promise you will be happier!

I know this from personal experience.

My Boyfriend is Acting Different – Does He Still Love ♥ Me?

In the video above Dear Sybersue discusses one of the popular questions she gets on her advice column from women.

“Things have changed within my relationship, how do I know if  my boyfriend is really in love with me?”

If you are asking this question you have probably not been paying attention to what is really going on in your partnership. When it gets to this stage it can often be the “beginning of the end” of your relationship. I am not trying to scare you but it is important for me to point this out and it may not be too late to salvage your love. ❤

Nurturing any relationship in your life is an ongoing necessary practice.

Dangerous Flirting Outside Your Relationship!

Dangerous Flirting Outside Your Relationship!

In the video above Dear Sybersue talks about the dangers of flirting with others while you are in a relationship. It’s not as harmless as many people think it is and it could eventually lead you down the path of infidelity!

You can become so good at playing a flirtatious game that it becomes an addiction due to the attention you receive. 

We all like a little ego stroking once in awhile but when someone is playful and obviously attracted to you, it can be a very dangerous merry-go-round and hard to get off of.

Flirting while trying to make your partner jealous usually doesn’t end well and can be the beginning of relationship mistrust. We all know what happens next when these insecurities take over.

Make sure that you are OK with your partner flirting just as much as you are because what you think is only a little harmless flirting, may not feel quite as harmless when it happens to you!

Relationships: We’ll Get Married When…

Relationships: We’ll Get Married When…

Dear Sybersue,

I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend Daniel for 3 1/2 years and we have been engaged for 2 years.  He proposed to me with a very simple gold band but he has promised me there will be a bigger and better wedding ring the day we walk down the aisle together.

I am 33 years old and Daniel is 36.  We have very few discussions regarding any marriage plans and no actual date has been set on the calendar for the wedding ceremony. We have talked about having children but everything seems to be in a holding pattern since we got engaged. I am ready to be a mom but it is important for me to be married first!

Do you think I am fooling myself waiting around for him to go through with us ever getting married? Is this band on my finger basically a promise ring and nothing else? He is continually saying how stressed he is with work and finances etc. but I personally think it is an excuse so I won’t bring up any wedding talk! Continue reading

How to Deal With Low Self-Esteem and Relationships

How to Deal With Low Self-Esteem and Relationships

Do you really want to be in a relationship but you don’t feel positive about yourself or worthy of having love in your life? How do you remove this negativity and start to feel good about yourself?

We are ALL attractive and have something to offer, but if we don’t believe that about ourselves how will someone else believe we are a wonderful person?

Your self esteem is the foundation of your life. If you feel good about yourself and talk in a positive light people will want to be around you. If you keep pointing out negative things about who you are people may start to believe you!

How do you stop sabotaging love from happening for you?

  • People gravitate toward others who are happy and positive about life; not someone who sees doom & gloom on a regular basis.
  • By diversifying your life and continually trying new things, it will keep you from becoming stuck in a dull or pessimistic routine and more interesting to be around.
  • Understanding you may need some professional help to work on your optimism and remove the negative comments about yourself and others.
  • Put yourself in the company of happy people and happy scenarios.
  • Don’t allow yourself to be a part of negative gossip, especially if it involves your friends, family or colleagues.
  • Write down the things you like about yourself and read them out loud everyday!

Please watch the video above for more tips on how to change this up and believe you deserve love in your life! ❤
