A break up of a long or short term relationship can be very hard to take.  You may be left with a lot of questions about where the relationship went wrong and why your partner left you.  You may also feel the inevitable urge to curl up on the couch, turn on the TV and not move until the dense sadness end.  How long is too long to grieve the end of a relationship though?

If you find yourself unable to go on with daily activities for more than two weeks because you’re grief is so heavy, then you really need to get help by calling a therapist.  There is nothing wrong with talking to a personal therapist about how to get over a failed relationship.  Sometimes talking about why a relationship went wrong can help you get over it.  Grieving for anymore than two weeks can open the door developing deep depression and no one wants that.

There’s nothing shameful about feeling stuck in our grief as everyone feels sad or hopeless at some point.  The good news however, is that you’re not hopeless.  Call a professional therapist today and get the emotional help you need so that you can get on with your life!

America’s media is obsessed with being thin and classically beautiful.  However, we all know that magazine covers and even the pictures inside are always photo shopped and glossed up.  We all know that our favorite actresses are mostly in full drag when they shoot movies or TV shows and they are definitely not all-natural.  Despite that, young women and teenage girls develop eating disorders everyday because of the unrealistic and unattainable standards of beauty they see in the media.  Not to say that the media is the only cause of eating disorders (because they are not), but they sure play a role in the perception of what is considered beautiful.

It’s so important that we let the young women in our society know that they are beautiful just the way they are!  Educate them on these unrealistic images that are put out there in the media.  Let them know that these images are not even real. That there really is no one example of true beauty!  Standards of beauty is not universal.

Anorexia and Bulimia are two very dangerous eating disorders that can result in a lack of nutrition and organ failure.  If you think you have an eating disorder and need help getting through it to become a healthier new you, contact a therapist as soon as possible.  They can help you get to the root of your eating disorder and move past it.

There is no reason to put your body through such dangerous activity to measure up to someone else’s idea of beauty.  If you want to change the way you eat or exercise more, do it because you want to be healthy.  Do it for you and only you. Don’t starve yourself or throw up your favorite food to look beautiful.  Don’t even change your style if you don’t want to.  Be who you are.  Never depend on the media to tell you what is or should be beautiful.

As always, keep your head up!

We all have our days, we’re ladies!  No it’s not PMS, no we didn’t get dumped, and no we’re not having a bad hair day! There’s not a cloud in the sky, yet we’re still feeling blah and unmotivated!!  Been there, done that!!

Here are a few steps on how to get the motivation in your life back!

1) Stop trying to do so much at once. ONE goal at a time!  I have this problem… I set all these impossibly large goals for myself when I can’t even remember to put the cap on the tooth paste… Start small.  Baby steps!!!  With each baby step you’ll feel more successful!  Bev always says to set attainable goals... like mini-goals to obtain an even bigger one.

2) Find inspiration! I’m in the process of doing that right now.  What inspires you?  What makes you want to do better, to be better!? Why are you not content with how things are going?  Why do you want change?  How bad do you want it? These are the questions you have to ask yourself, and when you find the answer, get inspired!!!!

3) Get excited about your life and your future!  Visualize how dope your life will be when you stop F****** up!  You will love your new life, it’s waiting for you! You just have to get up and go get it!

4) Stop what you’re doing real quick and Youtube this song really quick: Falling by Mr. Electric Triangle!  As I’m writing this article, this song comes on! And I see the light!  Hallllejuhah!  This song just spoke to me…

5) Post your goals all over your house, room, bathroom, car, etc.! Put little post it notes every where… Keep reminding yourself that you’re going to get this s%$# accomplished! You WILL succeed.  You WILL reach your goal!

6) Also, commit publicly!  You don’t want to look bad in front of other people. Think about it daily! positive thinking = positive outcomes! Get support, DITCH THOSE LOSER FRIENDS!  They’re not doing a damn thing for you except dragging you down, so don’t even waste your time with them!

7) Last but not least, think about the benefits NOT the difficulties. Everything isn’t going to be easy!  And you will appreciate things a lot more knowing you worked hard to get where you’re at! It’s not going to be easy, but hey…. who likes easy anyways!?  Click here for more tips on goal setting.

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

Many people struggle with having high self-esteem.  However, it is possible to teach yourself to have high self-esteem. People with high self-esteem tend to be more successful in life, have more meaningful relationships and make healthier physical choices.  With the constant grind of life, it can be really hard to obtain that level of high self-esteem it takes to make you happier in life.  However, with positive thinking and hard work you can get that self-esteem level right where you want it.

However, there is a difference between narcissism and high self-esteem.  The difference is pretty easy to spot.  If someone is constantly bringing down other people to make themselves look better, then chances are they’re narcissistic. They have fake self-esteem.  They don’t like themselves or their accomplishments so they have to go out and act like they are better than other people in order to make themselves look good or feel good.

Psychologists state that Narcissistic Personality Disorder is characterized by a long-standing pattern of grandiosity (either in fantasy or actual behavior), an overwhelming need for admiration, and usually a complete lack of empathy toward others.  People with this disorder often believe they are of primary importance in everybody’s life or to anyone they meet (psychcentral).

Never become one of these people.  Build up your self-esteem in a natural and healthy way.  Putting down other people will never make you a better person.  Instead, it builds up a very nasty character flaw that will make you a lonely and unlikable person. It’s also very important that you don’t spend too much time with narcissistic people.  They repeatedly put you down and drive down your self-esteem in a sorry attempt to build up their image.  Don’t go for it!  Some narcissists will even go as far as to sabotage other people in order to look better or get what they want.

You never want to be surrounded by these people, and you never want to become one of those people.  So, build up that high self-esteem and leave that narcissism alone!  Learn more on self-esteem HERE!

As always, keep your head up!

Narcissist 1000

People all around the world conform to their societies normal habits every single day.  Sometimes that’s OK and sometimes it’s not.  For instance, America has a way of advertising and supporting poor eating habits.  While conforming to eating a juicy hamburger every once-and-a-while won’t kill you, eating one 3-4 times a week certainly will!

Harmless things like conforming to book club rules or trying to conform to a healthier way of eating can be completely harmless.  However, conforming to do something that is total opposite of you can be very harmful.  Conforming to something that is also obviously dangerous or harmful to others is not a good idea either.  Gangs, for example, is a clear cut example of something extremely dangerous to conform to.  Although gangs do offer a sense of belonging, there is nothing else positive going on in a gang.  Being in a gang can result in someone being dead, going to jail or hooked on drugs for life.

If you’re a so-called geek and want to live the life of a popular party cheerleader, think twice about it.  Is the life of the cheerleader really as great as you think?  Do you have anything in common with the cheerleaders at all?  Instead of trying to conform to a lifestyle that’s not anything like you’re own, embrace your lifestyle.  Embrace and love your fun nerdy skills and personality.  You can learn more about what Bev thinks about loving yourself first HERE.

There is absolutely no reason for someone to conform to an idea, lifestyle or personality trait that that is negative or does not feel natural.  Only conform to the things that make a better and brighter you.  Always leave the negative things alone.

As always, keep your head up!

Men have been marrying and dating younger women for centuries now.  Yet, people are still asking if it’s OK for seasoned women (older women is such a harsh term) to date younger men.  The simple answer is: yes!  Why can’t women do what men have been doing since practically the beginning the time?

There is nothing wrong with two consenting adults getting together, even if one adult is significantly younger that the other one.  Dating a younger man can give a seasoned woman new and exciting experiences in life.  A younger man can be full of life and new experiences that an older man just can’t give a seasoned woman.  And in turn, a younger man can get much more experience and sophistication from a cultured seasoned woman, that he couldn’t get from a younger one.

Now how young is too young or is there a limit at all?  There actually is a limit to how young a seasoned woman should go. According to Bev, a 50 year-old woman and a 35 year-old man is a great cougar relationship.  Both parties are mature and know what they’re getting in to.  However, a 50 year-old woman with an 18 year-old boy is creepy.  Yes, on paper the 18 year-old is legal, but they are definitely not emotionally ready to handle a seasoned woman?

There’s nothing wrong at all for a seasoned woman to be dating a younger man as long as the younger man is a completely able to know what he’s getting in to, and vice-versa.

Cougar 1000

I need you guys to picture this for me… A BEAUTIFUL woman!  She’s got sexy long dark hair, eyes you could get lost in, and a body like HOO-RAH!  She think she’s the full package. BUT, her personality sucks!  She’s a complete bitch and she’s constantly nagging and being totally negative.

Now think, if you were a guy, would that be appealing to you!?  No!  Would you want to wife that, hell no!  Ladies think about it, you can be the most beautiful done up model-type chick, but that’s not all you need to land a great guy!  Guys (or girls) don’t like bitches. I’m sorry, but newsflash!  Ever heard the saying, Attitude is Everything?!  Hello!!!

You’re not going to land a guy or friends for that matter with that nasty attitude!  It’s not cute and you should probably stop while you’re ahead!  I know this girl who is drop dead GORGGG!!!  She thinks she’s got it all, but the minute she opens her mouth, I’m running in the opposite direction.  Why?!  Because she’s a stuck up wannabe bitchy ass BITCH!  And like I’m going to keep saying, THAT’S NOT CUTE!!!!!!!!!

If you’re one of these girls, reality check… STOP BEING ONE OF THEM!  You’re not going to have any friends like this, you’re not going to get a man like this.  What you are going to be is a lonely ass lady with seventeen cats and a couple birds.  Who wants to live this life?  Yeah no, NOT me!  And I’m sure not you either!

Believe it or not, being humble is sexy!  Guys actually like a girl who can be pretty but not flaunt every cute thing about her every three seconds!  You got that bangin body, great for you!  I’m not saying down yourself to make others feel better, but just be humble!  I’m telling you, you’ll thank me later!  You’re Welcome!

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

No one likes to be around people who complain all the time.  If you’ve ever been around a complainer for long then you know that it brings down your attitude and your emotional well being as well.  So if you’re on the roll of being a never ending complainer then lets get something straight today: Stop complaining now!

It really is just that simple.  Think about what you’re grateful for in your life and stop complaining about other things. Stop complaining about your cheating boyfriend and how he doesn’t love you.  Take action and get rid of him.  Stop complaining about how you want to go back to school, but can’t.  Go see a school counselor who can help you with taking the steps necessary to go back to school.  If you’re tired of being over weight and feeling sluggish then maybe you need to exercise more and eat healthier.

The first step you need to take to improve your life is to stop complaining about it.  There is no way you can improve for the better if you continue to focus on the negative things in your life.  No one’s life is all bad, but if it seems that way then you need to take responsibility for it and get to work on creating a better one!

Not sure how to make your life better after you stop complaining?  Check out Bev Knox Personal Development Classes & Coaching.  It is 100% online!  Through personal development, you can help yourself to create a fabulous new you.  Get in touch with yourself again by discovering what makes you happy.  Making yourself feel better on the inside and outside will end your complaining and get you on the road to a life you can be proud of!

As always, keep your head up!
