DEMI LOVATO, A LIFE ROLE MODEL

Image
GIVE YOUR HEART A BREAK
A valuable Inspiration we can draw from the American Singer, Song writer and Actress, Demi Lovato who when from a young age had struggled with physical and emotional struggles but in the end managed to come out stronger and has stayed strong after seeking help.

She inspires many to stay strong regardless of the troubles they face and can teach us all to give our hearts a break from all the emotional entangles we can face. Emotions are a great factor in our lives and can have devastating effects if we do not accept them and learn to control them or attend to them.

Another great factor to help is by surrounding ourselves with supportive people, our family and especially having good friends to help us through it all. There is only so much you can take. It is time to rise above like a skyscraper. Give her songs a listen and feel inspired all over again. Go Demi Lovato!

HOW TO BE THE BETTER PERSON IN A RELATIONSHIP

Image
Sometimes we get tired and thrown around by life, we get disappointed by the people around and the circumstances don't help either. Somebody once told me that in life we ought not to kill our enemy but rather kill enmity in order to have peace. So how do you become the better person in whatever relationship that is going sour? Try these tips;


NEVER TAKE IT TOO PERSONNEL. It may indeed be personal but taking it that way makes it more emotional and less easy to make a rational decision.BE THE BETTER PERSON. Act nice even if they ignore your sweet actions. It does not mean looking stupid, its just being the better man. DO NOT GO AN EXTRA MILE, JUST BE NICE WHEN THEY ARE AROUND YOU.DO NOT IGNORE THEM WHATSOEVER, even if it hurts but being the better person means swallowing your pride.ACT LIKE YOU HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOREVER AND THEY HAVE NEVER OFFENDED YOU WHEN THEY ARE AROUND YOU.BE HUMBLE BUT NOT TO THE POINT OF STUPIDITY.BE FORGIVING.BE TRUTHFUL ALWAYS.COMMUNICATE AT ALL TIMES IN WHAT…

WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO STOP TRUSTING

Image
Many times we think people will remain the same. Once they like us we expect them to like us forever, the sad reality is that times change, for better or even worse. What then, how would we know the person is the same one that we used to know. How would we know that the particular person deserves our trust?

READ THE SIGNS


There's no bigger sign than the tale-tell signs that someone is no longer the same. Some of the signs could be;


COMMUNICATION BREAK DOWN. You no longer communicate as frequently as you used to.SOMETHING IN YOUR GUT TELL YOU SOMETHING MIGHT BE WRONG. Never ignore your little gut feelings.THEY IGNORE YOU.THEY LIE TO YOU.NO MORE EYE CONTACT.MAKING OVER THE TOP DEMANDS FROM YOU. etc
However, sometimes people just need a break and in the next issue we will discuss when to trust someone. Don't feel bad if someone you trusted starts to show these signs, you are worth so much better. Be safe, SFG.

Image
TIME TO DRAW THE LINE BETWEEN TRASHY AND EDGY Ok, so you like to look edgy. Got an edgy hairstyle with stripes of pink and green in it. Wow, you even got your nose pierced. Your dress sense screams rock star, no wonder you get all those stares.
Your look is cool but is that look only cut out for actual celebrities? Where do we draw the line between Edgy and Trashy so that we do not end up attracting the wrong crowds like beens happening lately?
Fear not, I have been there before and sometimes it so irritatingly happens regularly that I end up asking myself 'Do I look like a Prostitute?'

Remember these tips next time you go out; You have the right to dress in whatever way that you deem appropriate but remember in a world where people live by sight, people will judge you by how you dress. Of course we know better but let us remember too that others have their own views too.Keep your dressing smart or classy and avoid skimpy outfits. Yes there is a difference, between sexy diva a…

HOW TO KNOW HE JUST WANTS TO BANG

Image
So you are walking alone in town and you get cornered by some hot guy, ok maybe not so hot and he says hi. Being the friendly person that you are you respond and say hi too.


HOLD IT!!!
MISTAKE YOU ARE WALKING ALONE!
Walking alone makes you an easy prey for anyone, good, bad, dangerous and even simply curious people.But always think as to WHY THEY WANT TO TALK TO YOU. Of course you are pretty and this amazing guy would like to know you. Of course but not everyone has pure intentions especially that you are a pretty face. Maybe not so pretty but being a girl makes you vulnerable anyway. Leave if you are not ready to do anything sexual with this guy.

SO HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS GUY JUST WANTS SEX?

WATCH OUT IF;

HE KEEPS THE CONVERSATION LIGHT. This shows he is not much interested inanything more than the surface which just happens to be your body.HE ASKS OR OFFERS YOU ALCOHOL. Even when you declined.HE COMPLIMENTS YOUR BODY AND SAYS YOU LOOK STRONG / SPORTSY / FIRM. Or anything similar like askin…

Our target group is marginalized girls between the ages 8 and 25 years old.
