Borrow Money

Most people have let a loved one borrow money, with the agreement they would be paid back. Unfortunately, things don’t go as plan always, even if the person borrowed the money with good intentions. Thus, if you’re NOT able to answer yes to both questions I’m about to raise, it’s probably not a good idea to lend someone money.

  • Usually Pay Bills On Time?

Does the individual have a track history of paying their bills on time? If no, the chances are low that they will pay you back on time.

  • Realistic Pay Back Plan?

Often times the individual who needs the money only focus is that moment in time. As a result, the person usually not even thinking about when they do get paid in having to give you your owed amount out of that and basically being back in the same situation that has them currently trying to borrow from you.

What are some other good questions in your opinion to ask someone before letting them borrow money?

Kids

I don’t have any kids yet, but I definitely want to be able to help and give any future child of mines an even better head start in life once they become an adult than what I had. Things don’t always go as planned. As a result, sometime parents can actually be hurting their kid when they think that they’re helping.

Allowing Your Child To Stay With You As An Adult

  • If your child is saving a significant amount of their money monthly to buy a house or putting some of it aside in an emergency fund this can be a great thing, However, if they are just blowing most of their money monthly this can be a very bad thing, especially if he/she is living a lifestyle with you that they wouldn’t be able to sustain on their own.
  • A child will be less motivated to move out if they get to blow all of their money earned while living with you. Furthermore, kids that grow up this way struggle often when they start living with someone in a romantic relationship. The key reason is because the average person is going to want their partner to help and contribute something to the monthly bills if they’re working.

Has there ever been something you allowed your kids to do that you later regretted because you felt that you did a disservice to them?

Excuses

I grew up in the south, so you will probably hear me repeat a lot of sayings often in my blogs, one of them being “excuses or results.” We can make excuses about anything in life that we really don’t want to do and some are valid. Yet, they rarely get us to where we want to be or what we desire to have, but results do.

For instance, if you just graduated college and having a hard time getting a job in the field that you got your degree in, the easy thing to do is to play the victim card while blaming others. Please understand that I know sometime you will actually be a true victim. However, it usually won’t change the reason why you’re down and not happy. Also, sometime you got to think outside the box to get what you want in life.

Therefore, I feel the best way to handle this type of situation is to randomly start contacting HR resources through a tool like Linkedin. Let them know that you’re willing to do an internship for free for about two or three months. Thus, if you’re willing to work for free, there is a high chance someone will find a spot for you.

Plus, it’s a win-win for both sides, since you’ll get the needed internship experience. Furthermore, the company will get free work and might even decide to bring you on-board full time afterwards.

Have you made an excuse recently about something? If yes, what was it and did it help to get you the final result you wanted?

Complicated

Have you ask someone are they in an exclusive relationship for them to tell you “It’s complicated”? That particular reply has always baffled me when I hear it. The reason is because I only think of a few legitimate answers someone can respond to that question with and that isn’t one of them.

In my opinion you’re either in or not in an exclusive relationship with someone. Also, some people do agree to take a break to try and figure some things out occasionally. Yet, a break in my opinion means the two individuals aren’t together or living by relationship rules with each other at that time.

When I hear someone say “its complicated” that makes me question how good the communication is in their relationship. I say that because I feel if the communication is good neither party should ever be unsure where things stand.

Furthermore, I think that it’s vital for any potential couple to have good and open communication by making time to talk on the phone on a regular, even if they can’t be around each other daily.

Have you ever been in a romantic relationship that you felt your relationship status was “it’s complicated”? If yes, why did you feel that it was and did things ever change with that person?

Single

I’m often asked by people that get to know me why I’m still single. My reply is always that I haven’t met a special young lady that I see a long term future with as my potential wife one day and feel will make a great mother to my future child. Not to mention, I’m happily single and in a good space in life.

Also, being in a romantic relationship works two ways. She has to want to be in one with me and I have to want the same with her. Thus, sometime ladies don’t want to be in one with me either, which is totally fine since everybody isn’t compatible.

Therefore, don’t ever feel bad about being single, since the goal isn’t to be in a relationship just to say you got somebody. However, it should be to be in one with a person you view overall as an asset and not a liability. Furthermore, you want the chemistry to be natural between the two of you, along with sharing similar key beliefs and values in life in my opinion.

Do you get ask why you’re single often? If yes, what is usually your response and how does it make you feel?

Grade

I’m sure everyone has heard an individual in a relationship complain before about something they wished their significant other still did often that they use to when the two of them first started dating. It’s common for most people to get too relax in a relationship with someone that they’ve been with for awhile. Thus, I think all couples should give each other a weekly relationship grade.

It’s important to be consistent while you’re with someone and not to stop doing things that your significant other like, especially if it heavily contributed to them wanting to be with you in the first place.

As a result, this is a chance for the two to hold each other accountable, along with receiving and giving constructive feedback. Furthermore, this also a chance when they can let their partner know what they’re doing well.

Do you feel a couple giving each other a weekly relationship grade is a good thing?

Liability

I believe that the people we interact with daily in our lives are either an asset or liability to us. Therefore, if you have to choose, I’m sure most people will prefer the person that they view as an asset. Yet, a lot of people have friends and family members, along with a current significant other that is a liability.

  • One-Sided Relationships

One key sign that a friend or family member is a liability to you is if you find yourself making them a priority and helping with something on a regular, but they’re hardly ever available and make you feel like an option often when you need them, even if it’s just for something small.

  • Not Happy Around Them Often

If you find yourself less happy and more stress most of the time you’re around another individual because of what they do or don’t on a regular, there is a good chance they are a liability in your life and that you need to distance yourself from around them.

What are some other examples of a person being a liability that you can think of?

Assume

One of the things which makes the world great in my opinion is that everyone doesn’t like the same things or think alike. Yet, most disagreements between family members or friends happens when one person assume that everyone does think like them. However, that is definitely not the mindset you want to have, since it can lead to a lot of miscommunication that could be avoided.

  • Give Others The Respect You Want In Return

I’m hoping you wouldn’t want someone that you care about to have an issue with you and not let you know about it directly, but address the issue with a number of other people instead. Thus, why would you want to do that to another person?

  • Listen To Understand

If you do have a discussion with the individual that you’re mad or disappointed in, be sure to listen to with the intent to understand instead of listening to reply. This is important to do because the two of you might of been looking at things from different perspectives. As a result, neither one of you might actually be right or wrong and the other person honestly might not of had any clue of what they did before you told them.

Has there ever been a time where you initially assume someone intent in doing something to find out you was wrong after a conversation with them?

Diet

A number of people have probably gained some unwanted weight since the pandemic has started and plan to go on a diet to lose some of those pounds. As a result, I think that it’s important to keep the following things listed below in mind while on a weight loss journey.

  • Slow Progress Better Than None

While on a diet it’s vital to set realistic goals and not get discourage if you’re not losing pounds on the pace that you will like. Furthermore, you got to remember that you didn’t gain all the pounds that you’re currently trying to shed overnight, so you certainly not going to lose it all at one time either.

  • Keep A Supply Of Fruit At Your Home

Your body will naturally crave unhealthy sweets and soda that it has grown accustomed to receiving when you first start a diet to lose weight. Therefore, to reduce those cravings when they occur and not to screw up your diet, have some fruits at your home available to eat as a substitute.

What are some other things that you feel are important while on a weight loss journey to remember or do?

Name Brand

Most of you have probably come across a lot of huge sales on popular name brand clothes during this pandemic at places like Macy’s. I’m very much aware that everybody current situation is not the same. Yet, there are some key questions that you should ask yourself before making that purchase when you’re thinking about it.

  • Should It Be Use Towards Something Else?

If you need another adult to help you out financially on a regular then you should probably think twice before purchasing popular name brand clothes for yourself just because they are on sell. Also, just because you may have extra monthly money currently coming in, that doesn’t mean that you need to spend it all that same month.

  • When Was The Last Time You Got All Dress Up?

A sale usually makes people want to purchase something because they feel like they’re getting a great deal on it. Yet, if you just been mainly going to the grocery store with a mask on and been avoiding social gatherings of ten or more people, you’re currently not going anywhere I feel where you need to get all dress up for. Furthermore, there will always be new sales at the start of every new season of each year.

Has there been any new name brand clothes purchases recently that you’ve had buyer’s remorse on?
