Crying Gets In The Way

Why, when you've been pouring your heart out, tears streaming down your face, does your boyfriend come up with nothing more than "Well, what do you want?" when that's exactly what you've spent the past 2 hours trying to tell him? Why does it feel like you're talking to a post just when you need his love more than anything?…

Don’t Nag, Draw Him a Picture!

“You’ve already asked me that, a hundred times!” your spouse snaps at you. “Well, you haven’t done it yet!” you retort. “Nag, nag, nag” your erstwhile beloved mutters under his breath. “What was that?” you demand. “Nothing, dear,” he says with heavy sarcasm on the dear, as he stomps out the door.

You could scream. You know perfectly well that you nag at him, but what else can you do? You can’t get all the chores done yourself, and there are some things he’s in control of that you… Continue

Co-workers Pick on You

Why do your co-workers pick on you? Why do they feel free to criticize and make fun of you instead of letting you work in peace?

You barely sit down at your desk when your co-workers start in on you: "Hey, look at those bags under your eyes. Wild weekend, huh?" or "There's donuts in the lunch room.

Breaking Up With A Nice Guy

What is it about nice guys that makes them so hard to break up with? Why do you even want to break up with this guy when your Mom, your friends, and even your dog like him?

You're dating this genuinely nice guy. He brings you flowers regularly, he calls when he says he will, he opens car doors for you and almost always picks up the tab, and doesn't mind sitting through re-runs of the latest chick flick, yet you’re bored beyond belief. You figure you really should break up with him… Continue

A Fairy Tale for Modern Times - the Peaceful Family Dinner

Why does dinner at your house resemble feeding time at the zoo? Why is it so difficult to get your kids and husband to all sit down at the same time and share a peaceful meal?

I'm standing in the 12 items or less lane at the market, when I overhear a woman at the next checkstand moaning to the cashier, "Look at all this stuff! It's ridiculous: broccoli for my daughter the vegetarian, burritos for my son, steak for my husband – why can't they all eat the same thing? I can hardly keep… Continue
