Appreciate and respect their hard work

My best friend, an excellent designer, did some work for her cousin’s husband. When work was done, she charged below the minimum price for the project.

My best friend has countless orders and regular clients, so this work was simply a favor for the cousin and her husband. Perfectionist as she is, she poured her soul into it and delivered a high-quality product.

She is currently drowning in orders, so the only reason that she took that project was because of her cousin. She begged her to help her husband, so my best friend went out of her way and…


ANTM was more problematic than we thought

Source

When I was thirteen, I loved America’s Next Top Model.

Tyra Banks was a fierce queen, the godmother of awkward contestants, and one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen.

I never dreamed of becoming a model, but as a teenager, I loved ANTM. It was the only series on modeling and extremely popular in the early 2000s when it was first aired.

We talked about it with my friends and discussed drastic makeovers, challenging photoshoots, dramas, and eliminations. …


You have to try and decide if it fits you

Working from home is like the perfect pair of shoes you see in the store. They are brand new, shiny, and look like you would enjoy them every moment.

The first time you wear them, they turn into shoes from hell. They’re not comfortable, your feet hurt, and every step is torture. You need to wear them a few times to make them softer and more comfortable.

But what if they never suit you? After many painful walks and blisters, you will finally give up and pass it to someone else.

Some shoes are just not meant for you, and…


Find lessons in unusual places

Drug dealers are real entrepreneurs, and it doesn’t matter if most people despise their way of making money. They know about business, customers, money, and survival. But instead of selling their courses like every third artist right now, they prefer to focus on their businesses.

Even if you feel no sympathy for drug dealers, they can still teach you valuable lessons about entrepreneurship.

Not only entrepreneurs but also writers could use their advice about business, clients, and finance.

Apply the following rules to grow your writing career without judgment.

Keep it low

Most smart drug dealers move and work in silence. Not just…


Even sex toys have a double standard

Women’s use of sex toys is accepted and even encouraged in society.
Toys are often part of a woman’s discussion at a cocktail table in the movies or series.

“I just bought a brand new dildo. Well, who needs a man now?” one friend would say, and others would toast her with their cosmopolitans.

Right choice. Dildos make you cum first, don’t cheat, and fall asleep after sex,” a friend who is in the middle of a nasty divorce with her cheating husband would say.

If a waiter or other customers would hear their conversation, I doubt someone would be…


How to praise someone’s inner beauty

“I think you’re the best coach I’ve ever had at work,” the co-worker blessed me with a wonderful compliment that I still remember five years later.

When I worked in the store, I trained co-workers and explained them job duties. One day, I helped a new colleague with the cash register. We had old computers, and the whole procedure was complicated, so I tried to explain everything slowly. When I was the new girl, one of my colleagues rushed over training, leaving me with more questions than answers.

So when I was training co-workers, I tried to help them understand…


And your dog will buy it soon

I always loved dogs, and I tried to convince my mom to get us a fluffy best friend my whole childhood. I printed cute dog photos and taped them on my wall so my mum would notice the cuteness and couldn’t resist it. I even wrote a letter for her titled Why our family needs a new member where I promised her the puppy would be only my responsibility.

She didn’t like my idea, because we didn’t have enough space and I guess she knew the dog would be her only responsibility.

Now, two decades later, I’m a cheesy dog…

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

My little-town brains didn’t even know the expression 9–5 till I didn’t join Medium and start reading articles about it. From countless posts on this hot topic, I quickly learned that nine to five is the typical I got bills to pay job that most artists on this platform despise.

How ironic, I thought, I spent more than a decade listening to ex co-workers dreaming about having an office morning schedule. And then I discovered Medium, where almost everyone hates it.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure — is the quote stuck in my head from when I found…


When the erotic triangle become a chaotic crowd

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels

Ménage à trois has a significant role in the film and music industry. Many movies and series worship three-way couples and use them for their inspiration. But as beautiful as an erotic triangle can be, the film industry also exposes the ugly part of it — jealousy, wrong motives, and terrible results. What can we learn from the disastrous Hollywood threesomes?

Can you help someone who doesn’t want your help?

Mental health awareness has made a drastic change in society in past years. We can finally talk about mental health and acknowledging the importance of it. We debate about mental illness and the treatments for disorders but overlook sick people who don’t want to go to the hospital till we personally experience this dilemma.

It is hard when your loved one gets sick, but it becomes unbearable if that person declines therapy. And sadly, nobody can help you force your friend in the hospital against their will if they are adults.

When my family member struggled with an eating disorder…
