Your Friends & Family Members Ruined OUR Fucking Love Life?!

sharp
Friends & Family Members trying to sabotage your love life?
You might reasonably believe that anyone who cares about you wants to see you happy. But often this is not the case. Your friend or family members can become just as jealous as a scorned lover. S/he might be completely UN-supportive, fault finding, create chaos and soap opera drama, pure lies by saying things that will lead you to breakup or hate your partner. Suddenly, you may feel you have to choose between your friends or your love relationships. If your friend is used to socializing with you on a regular basis, then your involvement with your significant other can cause envy, pure jealous feelings.  What ends up happening is that sometimes your friends or family members (consciously or unconsciously) attempts to Sabotage your love relationship.
Deception, Demeaning lies, stories, or comments can be made about your Partner, it can even be about your partner’s physical appearance, style, beliefs, personal life, dress, profession, manners, or hygiene. Sometimes friends will tell you that your love partner doesn’t look like your type, maybe not good/bad for you. Messages like these can become confused, and people who are indecisive may be more disturbed and unsettled by them.  Many find it draining to be forced to choose who to trust or who to spend time with.  Some family members or friends, who complicate this process with guilt, inducing maneuvers, gossip, demands and statements such as:
 “How can you let yourself be open to this person?” “What kind of friend are you? As soon as a new man/woman comes around, you’re going to dump me? you’re different or He/shes different. ‘ “You don’t care about me anymore.” “Do you know who this person really is? I know this person isn’t good for you?! The list goes on. It is cumbersome to determine what’s good and honest feedback, which you shouldn’t discount, and when you should just trust your own intuition. Some of your friends and relatives may be quite perceptive and intuitive. You may even use them as sounding boards because you realize they are better at reading warning signs they see than you are. Lots of people become weary of escalating a relationship if their friends & family do not like their new partner.
This is often a Deal Breaker. Unfortunately, friends & family members may not be objective if they are too dependent on you for social, emotional, or mental support Or just absolute envious of you in all.  You need to realize how you feel when you are with your partner.  It is hard enough for things to work between two people, let alone three or others involved.
In fact, it’s rare that if you and your mate socialize with another couple, that the four of you will get along.  Jealousy, resentment, and disappointment will crop up and complicate each new encounter, so relax and don’t expect everyone to agree with the partner you chose to spend time with.  What can you do to deal with this dilemma? Ideally, we all should be able to read for ourselves, We should know whether it’s a good relationship. In all healthy relationships, you should be able to have a variety of support from others.  Long story short: If you feel good with your partner, continue to see him/her and learn to set boundaries with friends & family members who may get envious.
#1 Your friends think your date’s not good enough, #2 Friends who constantly want your attention. #3 Talking about past relationships. #4 Friends who want you to cheat. #5 Friends who make you ignore your lover. #6 Friends who flirt with your lover. #7 They disrespect your partner. #8 Your friends speak ill of you. #9 They always show the worst side. #10 Your friends know your amorous secrets. #11 Friends who flirt with you. #12 Friends of the opposite sex. #13 Friends who know too much.
At times, your friends & family could absentmindedly ruin your relationship. But almost always, friends & family ruin relationships just for fun. So unless you want to lose your lover and hate your friends & family members , keep these Relationship Ruining Signs in mind!

Philosophy “Love of Wisdom”

ocen 1
Philosophy is derived from two Greek words. Philo means lOVE, sophy means WISDOM. Philosophy means “love of wisdom”. Conscious of a set of beliefs, or personal philosophy informs how we live, work, & interact with others. What we believe is directly reflected into teaching and learning processes. It is important to understand how philosophy and education are interrelated. In order to become the most effective teacher you can be, you must understand your own beliefs, while at the same time empathizing with others. Developing our own educational philosophy is a key part of our journey to teach.
Major branches of philosophy are Metaphysics, epistemology, Axiology and logic. Metaphysics considers questions about the physical universe, & the nature of reality. Epistemology examines how people come to learn what they know. Axiology is the study of fundamental principles or values. Logic pursues the organization of the reasoning process. Logic can be divided into two components; deductive reasoning which takes general principles and relates  them to a specific case; & inductive reasoning, which builds up an argument based on specific  examples.
Idealism can be divided into three categories, classical, religious, & modern. Classical idealism the philosophy of the Greeks Socrates & Plato, searches for an absolute truth. Religious Idealism tries to reconcile God & Humanity.Modern Idealism stemming from the Ideas of Descartes, links pereption & existence.
Realism, school of thought founded by Aristotle, believes the world of matter is separate from human perceptions. Modern Realist thought has led to the blank slate, notion of human capabilities.
Pragmatism believes that we should select ideas, actions, & consequences with the most desirable outcome, as well as learning from the previous experiences to achieve desirable consequence.
Major philosophy of education can be broken down into three main: teacher-centered philosophies, Student-centered philosophies & society-centered philosophies.  These include Essential-ism, Perennial-ism, Progressivism, social Reconstruction-ism, Existentialism, Behaviorism, Constructivism, Conservatism, & Humanism. Other Ideologies of educational philosophy include nationalism, American exceptionalism, ethno-nationalism, liberalism, conservatism, & Marxism.

It is important to identify your own philosophy of education in order to understand your own system of values & beliefs so that you are easily able to describe your teaching.

2 Peter Chapter 3 KJV

2 Peter 3 King James Version (KJV)

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:

That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
