YES, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

I came across a beautiful poem by Padraic Husemann and was inspired to share it. Indeed you are beautiful.





YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

You are beautiful
Not only because of the brownness of your eyes
Or the shape of your body
Not only because of the fullness of your lips
Or the curl of your eye lashes

You are beautiful because You want to be
You are beautiful because God made you that way
You are beautiful because in my eyes
THERE IS NO ONE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOU

You are beautiful because you have a heart
And that is a beautiful thing
You are beautiful because you have a brain
And that is a beautiful thing
You are beautiful because You give advice
And that is a beautiful thing

You are beautiful because God made You that way
You are beautiful because in my eyes
THERE IS NO ONE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOU

You are beautiful because you have confidence
You are beautiful because you have determination and wit
You are beautiful because you have goals and you plan to reach them
You are beautiful because you are always there to lend a helping hand

You are beautiful because God made you beautiful

IS FACEBOOK DATING VALID

It starts with a friend request from this SUPER CUTE PERSON, you have no idea who s/he is but he is definately a friend of a friend or someone from the blues or someone we've seen before but perhaps was too shy to talk to us in person.. 


Ok, maybe he's not so cute but the conversations you have is as though you've known each other for ages! 'Are you single,' he or she says. 'Hell yeah,' you reply. And a few seconds later, your status changes from single to in a relationship or even engaged and married yeah some of us have got to that point.


IS A FACEBOOK RELATIONSHIP VALID?  


If you're dating someone on facebook, someone you could have maybe just skyped from halfway across the world does that put you in a relationship? Would you be cheating if you dated someone who you actually saw?

what is a relationship? There are many definitions and some of which are? 
  • a connection, association, or involvement.
  • connection between persons by blood or marriage.
  • an emotional or other connection between people: the relationship between teachers and students.
  • a sexual involvement; affair.



Therefore from the first definition, the basis of your relationship is Facebook and without Facebook you will probably never ever even be in that relationship. Well, without Facebook we'll shift to messenger. Oh yeah, and without internet your relationship dies.


My advice is go out there in real life and create a real relationship and if you have found a relationship on Facebook, grow it beyond the Facebook foundation in order for it to be valid and do the things that people in a real relationship do. Also do exercise safety on Facebook as not everyone out there is as good as you are.

HOW FAR SHOULD SELF DEFENSE GO

There are times in life when we have to defend yourself. But how far is self defense acceptable? And when should we actually use it against our aggressor? When attacking we have to bear in mind the consequences could be fatal, Are we ready for the consequences emotional and legal?

It has been said self-  defense is not murder but does that give us a right to murder someone in our defense? This depends on the severity of the case. When attacked, keep these tips in mind;


  • RUN AWAY if possible or;
  • CALL THE NEAREST SECURITY OR AN EMERGENCY NUMBER .
  • KNOW YOUR HUMAN RIGHTS SO THAT YOU KNOW WHEN THEY ARE BEING ABUSED. 
  • STAY CALM even when you are attacked. Panicking will make the situation worse. Putting on a brave face even when you are terrified can show the aggressor you are in control which could either scare the aggressor or make them more aggressive because of fear or anger.
  • DISARM THE AGGRESSOR if you get the chance to. However be smart and time the agressor so that you do not end up hurting or even having yourself killed.
  • ACT FASTER AND SMARTER THAN YOUR ATTACKER.
  • BE BRAVE, you may be scared but do not let that make you too weak to act.
  • DO NOT BE AFRAID TO SCREAM AS LOUD AS YOU CAN. It does happen that when we are in bad situations we do not scream maybe because we are scared or we have been told not to.
  • BUY TIME. Every criminal case is different, some happen quickly others gradually but if it is possible for you to get more time for example, an aggressor is coming towards you with a knife, you could buy time by trying to calm the aggressor and talking. Getting more time before a crime is committed could help save you.
  • GET AWAY FROM THE SITUATION AS FAST AS YOU CAN.
