The Know It All Girlfriend!

So you have this great friend who you really enjoy spending time with.  She is your best girlfriend to do most  extracurricular activities with.  She's great at dancing, very well in social atmospheres, and has the most flexible schedule than one could ever hope for!  But there's just one characteristic trait that she has that absolutely drives you up a freaking wall.  She is a know it all friend!  I mean she's an expert regarding sports, clothes, medicine, I mean you name it she has experienced it. get the picture, the topic of discussion doesn't make a difference.  She's simply been there and has done that

Well here is my advise!  I am sure we all will agree that listening is an extremely important aspect to having great communication skills.   And since this friend has proven to be knowledgeable in so many different arenas, it is evident that she has not mastered the ability of LISTENING.  Therefore, when you are having one of those days where her behavior is over bearing try developing a soft but intense stare and look her directly in her eyes and do not give her a verbal response in the least.  Hopefully, this would bring about a sense of awareness regarding how uncomfortable you are!    Perhaps, if we are consistent with this practice one day she will ask for an in depth explanation.  Nevertheless, this is only my opinion and I look forward to  reading your thoughts and strategies on how to handle "The Know It All Friend!"

Real Friendships are Balancing and Relaxing

Given the fact that birthdays are very special to me, this past weekend was very exciting! It was time to celebrate one of my dear friends (Patrice Harrell) birthday.  During this time of her life's celebration, I witnessed friendships that are balancing and relaxing to say the least. I know you are wondering what I mean about balancing and relaxing.  Let me elaborate if you will. Experiencing balance within friendships consist of opportunities of being transparent,  unmasking, competition free, and growth developing moments.  As it relates to the term relaxing, simply put, opportunities to be less tense or anxious.

Therefore, as expected her birthday began with an evening of family, friends, food and music at her newly purchased home. Toasting, cheers, and bliss filled the atmosphere. The ambience was full of unconditional love and a strong presence of God's un-measuring favor in several areas including marriage and friendship.  As a result, the festivities called for a seco…

Now Let's Talk Steel Magnolias

As I expected “Steel Magnolias” was wonderfully written and well preformed.The cast worked great together and their acting capabilities complimented each other without prejudice.The revised script gave a warm feeling to what a southern African –American family would exemplify with regards to love, family bond, and friendship.Although, there were many messages for us to gain from, the one in particular that I wanted to make mention of is acceptance!
Understanding that we all are imperfect beings should lead us to the awareness that we all make mistakes in various areas of life, relationship and sisterhood.It was quite evident that all of the ladies suffered some type of life disappointment and each one dealt with it in their own way.Nevertheless, each of them knew the other’s struggle and accepted their friend just as she was while allowing room for growth.I would love to hear what message you gathered from the film….don’t be shy…communicating is good for the SOUL!
P.S. If you had to cho…
