Getting back in the game after a divorce can be incredibly challenging for people who’re filled with self-doubt. Divorce has a way of crushing your self-esteem, and the idea of getting into a new relationship can be nerve-wracking.
That being said, some experts believe that relationships after a divorce are usually a lot better than earlier ones.
Most adults can accept when they’re wrong and are willing to make changes that help them become better people, but there are also those who can’t take criticism at all.
When you try to get them to see your side, they manipulate the situation to make you seem wrong (even though you’re not and you know it!).
People who always have to be right are incredibly challenging to live with. You’ll find yourself walking on eggshells around them. They’ll test your patience, cause you immense frustration, and you’ll soon resort to keeping things to yourself instead of attempting to talk to them.
All of these issues are a breeding ground for problems in any relationship.

Here’s how you can negotiate your boundaries and ask for personal space without being rude or hurting those around you:
Working from home can come as a welcome break for many of us who live and work in fast-moving big cities and metropolitans. It’s a disruption from the long commuting to and from work, endless traffic, and balancing work and home life during your busy schedule.

Whether you’re working from home temporarily, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, or working from home regularly, these tips and tricks will help you a lot.

A new—or even long-term—relationship can hold a lot of value for most of us. When you’re starry-eyed and smitten, freshly bitten by the lovebug. Your partner is the most beautiful, selfless, loving person you know, and they sweep you off your feet with grand gestures and romantic good morning texts.
Each of us has different reasons for being in a relationship, apart from the emotional or sexual aspect of it. Sometimes, we cling on from sheer loneliness, other times because we’re too afraid to leave. We end up ignoring some major red flags as a result of that.
