In “Seeing Red: Part 1” I did an overview of my views on relationships and how they are interpreted and viewed today. In this post, I look to expand on certain ideas from that and offer ways to cultivate lasting relationships, focusing on having an mutual understanding and the notion that you are comfortable enough with each other to understand different aspects about each other.
DISCLAIMER: In various parts of this post, it may seem like I am advocating either a constant stream of long term relationships and dating, or advocating against such at all. Neither is the case, the point of this post is to expand on the beliefs and views of being in a long term relationship nowadays, and red flags to look for when potentially entering or considering entering one, I’m not here to tell you whether you should or shouldn’t be single or in a relationship.
Basically, Narcissism directly constitutes the worth that you value yourself as – better known as your ego – and how this affects how you treat those around you. While I will agree with the fact that Narcissism can be a bad thing, it can also be positive in its uses for creating self value/worth, confidence and above all a sense of pride.

No matter what anyone tells you, every new day you wake up is a chance to reject the past and embrace the future, and make said future better – whether it’s New Years or Spring Break, you can always improve yourself as a person. Don’t let hipsters tell you that 2016 can’t be your year, keep up with this site and I will make sure it is.

The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.

The previous are two quotes I feel like properly illustrate the concept I’m about to explain here, which is frankly – Investing your time unwisely for the sake of patience is not good nor a virtue, but rather a waste of time. As the saying goes time is money, which means that wasting one is wasting both as an interconnection of the two. While I don’t necessarily agree with this in the terms of all life situations, I find a better term to be “Time is worth the value of the money you’re losing or gaining during said time period”.
~Negative emotions like loneliness, envy, and guilt have an important role to play in a happy life; they’re big, flashing signs that something needs to change~
This post is going to deal with the concept of having a Negative Personality and how to defeat said part of your psyche and transform yourself into an optimist, a person who believes they are on this earth for a purpose and they can improve both their own life and the lives of those around them.
