Relationship Cycle

Have you ever realized the cycle of a relationship? Wait, did you even realize that relationships are a cycle? It's funny isn’t it? You meet someone, you’re scared of opening yourself him to him/her; you finally tear down your walls and allow that person in. Your trust and confidence grow and even though you doubt yourself, you decide to go against your instinct and show full-blown love to your partner. You’ve been through the late night calls, the early morning messages; you’ve lost hours of sleep just to talk to the significant other. The willingness to drop any and everything you are doing to be by their side. The time spent telling jokes, laughing, eating, and meeting friends and family. It may not be obvious the first few times but things begin to change, we received si...

Break Up Process

All good things must come to an end ~ Geoffrey Chaucer People believe that a break up is simple; you cry for a week then move on.  Is that the case for everyone?  Do you run to another guy/girl after exiting a relationship?  Do you take another drink or eat yourself to death? When the relationship comes to an end, what should I do? Many will agree that the breakup process is just like the grieving process, it involves: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.  Time heals all wounds, I must agree, but my length of time will not be yours, as such, you and I shouldn't rush another person when they are going through this phase. There is so much on your mind when you go through a break-up.  After doing my research I came to the conclusion that the length o...

Hot Head, Calm Down

Criticism may come in the harshest form, some we even cry about at nights.  Other times it comes from persons who we may not be fond of.  But, is it possible for us to focus on the message and not the messenger? Is it possible for us to find value in what was said and use it as a booster that will make us one step closer to success?  Is it viable to accept criticism?  Is it feasible for us to maintain self-control whilst being criticized? It is true that being the better and bigger person is easier said than done; it also takes more strength to not react rather than to.  You feel better when you don’t give into these pressures.  There are times when people push you to your limit and you feel an overwhelming cloud come over you.  I’ve seen situatio...

Should we teach our sons to be emotionally compatible?

Do we need to teach our sons how to be more emotionally compatible?  Such a homophobic country such as Jamaica has left a lasting impact on the minds of our young men.  Young men nowadays are afraid of showing any sort of affection towards others out of fear of being considered weak or feminine.  Men and women have distinctive ways of communication, despite the many views that men cannot be from planet Earth.  Especially when it comes on to children - sons to be precise – it is rare to find a man sitting down having a discussion with his son. “There are hardly any good men left” a statement made all too well by most single women all because men are scared to be romantic.  Can we as women and mothers teach our sons that it is OK for them to show love?  What ...

Creatives as Entrepreneurs

@Blackgirlcandidly_ When discussing entrepreneurship, artists and creatives are not typically a part of the conversation. But as more creatives begin to take their careers into their own hands, it becomes clear that character traits typically associated with entrepreneurs can be found in artists as well. Life as an artist and entrepreneur can be synonymous, just meet Khrystal. From founding Khorage Magazine and acting as the editor-in-chief, to managing herself as an independent artist, rapper, actress, and mother Khrystal “with a KH” embodies exactly what it means to be an entrepreneur in the creative space. Her ability to apply skills she obtained while running a tangible business to managing herself as a recording artist demonstrates that what it means to be an entrepreneu...
