Signs You've Found Your Soulmate
1. Your souls meet at the right time and place. You had to go through bad relationships to know what a good relationship looks like. You both needed time to grow, learn, and become who you are today. Everything has it’s destined time and place.
2. You know each other’s faults and bad habits. You know each other’s very souls. You’ve learned to see the goodness in one another’s hearts. You love each other completely, accepting one another just as you are. You know what a healthy relationship consists of and only want the best for one another. You find beauty in her darkness and strength in her tears.
3. Being together, in one another’s arms, washes away all the doubt, fears, worries, and stress of the day. With her, you’ve found your happy place, your safe place. You find comfort in one another’s presence. Whether just talking, eating a meal, or simply sitting in perfect peace and silence with her. She is your peace, your home, the one pers

Equal Pay For Equal Work
An extremely controversial subject is getting recognition once more, affirmative action. Many agree the policy helps individuals, while others firmly disagree with that opinion. Affirmative Action is defined by Webster’s New World College Dictionary as, “An action or policy favoring those who tend to suffer from discrimination, especially in relation to employment or education; positive discrimination.” Personally, I believe this ill-advised policy of giving jobs to individuals simply based on whether they are or aren’t a minority, is completely unnecessary. A policy proposed by those who refuse to simply do equal pay for equal work, and equal job opportunities for every American. What happened to hiring legitimate employees based on whether or not they’re actually qualified for the job? And no, I don’t necessarily mean meritocracy either. In my opinion, this particular policy does not always work. It’s often based more on biased opinions than

Protectionism, Isolationism, and Everything Else
I’ve noticed that in the last few months, Trump’s actions concerning foreign policy greatly resemble that of Protectionism. And even though I am neither for nor against many of his recent decisions, I do however believe that we should protect ourselves. We need to protect the United States from being exploited and manipulated by others. Certain countries with highly questionable business ethics have taken advantage of us in the past and it needs to stop now. However, we should also take into consideration the effect it’s had on the American economy. Including the suffering of business owners and employees’ whose entire financial future completely and utterly are dependent upon the trade industry.
For they, the steadfast workforce, are the ones who truly pay the highest price for the president’s tariffs and sanctions on the European Union, Canada, China, Iran, and Mexico. “You don’t treat allies the same way you treat opponents. Blanket protecti

America's Continuous Commitment To Staying On Top
Recently, there seems to be a huge break down in the Trans-Atlantic Alliance. In early May of this year, President Trump made the monumental decision to remove the US from the Iranian deal, this after already critical views of him withdrawing US support from the Paris Climate Accord, only further straining relations between the US and many countries around the world. Both Europe and the US tugging so unforgivingly and increasingly harder, the rope so exceedingly taut from pettiness and predomination, it may snap at any moment. The United States and Europe have had a defining relationship of shared values and mutual goals towards the good of the world since the 1940s. Yet eighty years later, the long-held agreements are no longer viable, or even possible, with Trump being at such great odds with many Europeans.
Great Britain, France, and Germany have recently reaffirmed their continued pledge to the Iranian Deal, along with other determined parties, wanting to keep the deal intact and m

Stop Being Depressed and Just Cheer Up
Whenever someone says your “just shy” or to “just stop being depressed and cheer up”, it makes me want to absolutely scream! Most people will never understand the suffering of those of us who deal with the daily detrimental effects from social anxiety disorders and/or depression. Those of us who cope with one or both of these truly damaging disorders are not simply “being shy” nor do we have the “ability to just cheer up”. There are, however, several different options that can help us to alleviate and mitigate some of the symptoms we suffer from daily, including therapy and medications. We will never be fully capable of dealing with the daily struggles that we face when afflicted with such a misunderstood mental and emotional issue. However, we can gain the skills to begin to properly function in society. It is a life-long, constant battle, which is something that most people will never understand.

Energy Vampires and Why You Should Avoid Them
Have you ever been around someone that left you feeling so drained of energy that you felt as if you needed a break from them or a nap to recharge? It’s not just your imagination, those feelings are a legitimate response to being around an emotional vampire. Now when I say vampire, I’m not talking about the mythical blood-sucking creatures of the night, but real actual people that exist in everyday life. The term “emotional vampire” refers to an individual that emotionally sucks the “life” or energy right out of you, leaving you feeling exhausted, drained, and depleted. Most people who have been affected by such a feeling of utter exhaustion from spending time with this type of person normally just chalks it up to it being their imagination. But it’s not, and spending time with one of these “emotional vampires” has a detrimental effect on our emotional well-being.

Bohemian Rhapsody: Queen **SPOILERS**
**************************************SPOILERS AHEAD**************************************
   
    The rock band, Queen, was an unparalleled musical group and it’s lead singer, Freddie Mercury, a force to be reckoned with. I recently saw the movie based on Queen’s phenomenal rise to fame, Bohemian Rhapsody, and I was profoundly moved by it. Based on the real-life events of the iconic band, the film chronicles their inspirational journey from humble beginnings to world-famous rock stars. Bohemian Rhapsody follows singer Freddie Mercury's life, from his initial meeting with Brian May and Roger Taylor to Queen's Live Aid performance at Wembley Stadium in 1985. It debuted in movie theaters across the country on November 2, 2018, with fans lining up by the thousands, eagerly awaiting to see the film based on the legacy that is Queen. The film was directed by Bryan Singer, written by Anthony McCarten, and produced by Graham King and former Queen and manager Ji

The Effects Of An Overly Opinionated Society
When do we, as a person, become guilty of being too opinionated. In truth, we all believe that it would be a much better world if everyone thought as we do. Yet we all know that this is impossible considering how numerous our societies beliefs and opinions are. Everyone having their own distinct, unique personalities and in turn, their own unique and often varying opinions and beliefs.
It has been noticed, by more than a few, that technology has been “too much” at times, in a world where everyone seems to be posting, sharing, and videoing their every experience and opinion. In short, a society of over-sharing. In centuries past, most individuals would keep their opinions to themselves, unless asked. Not so anymore, though. We have become a society of overly-opinionated and thin-skinned individuals.
With everyone voicing their opinions, one cannot help but get their own feelings hurt by another individual's personal belief when it differs from our own so greatly. In short, w

Tolerating Intolerance
Where does intolerance end and tolerance begin? It seems like we, as a whole, have become intolerant of those who are intolerant themselves. Which makes no sense to me, but is still an obvious problem. Then there are those who become so tolerant that they have given up their beliefs just to fit in and be accepted by society, sometimes without even realizing it. Most of those who have become so overly-tolerant have been blindly following society, going way past mere acceptance, straight into denying their own rights, their core values and morality, common sense, and even their identity. In a country where it has become unacceptable to pray in public or at schools, where one cannot say Merry Christmas to another without fear of offending someone, or even be able to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in many schools for fear of being offensive to others. What happened to this being the land of the free?

The Zero Tolerance Policy and How It Has Failed
The Zero Tolerance Policy, does it actually work? I personally would have to say no. But then, that is my opinion and I’m sure many would disagree, stating that the zero tolerance policy does in fact work. But, in my own personal experiences, it has not and does not work. The zero tolerance policy as defined by US Legal Inc. :
“Zero Tolerance Law Law and Legal Definition. Zero tolerance laws impose automatic punishment for infractions of a stated rule, with the intention of eliminating undesirable conduct. Such laws impose a pre-determined punishment regardless of individual culpability, extenuating circumstances, or past history.” 
(https://definitions.uslegal.com/z/zero-tolerance-law/)
Answer this for me though, how is punishing everyone involved in an incident actually helping? For example, two children were in a physical altercation due to (let’s just say boy A and boy B) boy A ridiculing and bullying another child. Boy B s

Ghosts, Spirits, and Otherworldly Things
Ghosts, spirits, and otherworldly things. The world is full of people who believe in them. Are you a believer or non-believer? Have you had a paranormal experience? Are ghosts, spirits, and souls all the same thing?
The soul is described as the cosmic liquid of life that fills the vessel that is our bodies and thus, gives us life. Souls, ghosts, and spirits are, in my humble opinion, all the same thing. Though, many would disagree with that sentiment. Webster’s dictionary defines souls as the spiritual or immaterial part ofa human being or animal, regarded as immortal. Spirit is defined as the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character; the soul. And lastly, ghosts are defined as an apparition of a dead person that is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. But, let’s face it, the words are often interchangeable in everyday conversations regarding the world of the paranormal.

Just A Little Southern Rant
I'm worried about this world and country that we live in. Our country has the worst education system in the world, with the exception of second and third world countries. We have the worst health care system in the world, homeless people everywhere, and a crumbling infrastructure. Our military and veterans are paid far less than they deserve, especially seeing how they put their lives on the line every day for our safety and get nothing in return once they retire or get seriously wounded. We have thousands of large structures like abandoned malls that would be perfect for homeless shelters, yet we do nothing while children and veterans sleep in the elements every night and go hungry. We are so concerned for our fellow man that we take in refugees, giving them a roof over their heads, food stamps, and free health care, while ignoring our own citizens that are also equally in need. We put the needs of others from foreign countries over the needs of our own U.S. citizens. Which to me, is

Controllers, Abusers, and Manipulators (UPDATED)
Controlling, abusive, and manipulative people never question themselves or their actions. They never stop to wonder if they are the problem. People like this just choose to assume the problem is always someone else. They tend to throw the blame onto others. They use their friends and family members for their own personal gain, then act as if no one has ever done anything for them in their entire existence. Their sole purpose is to control or manipulate everyone and everything around them. They expect people, especially those they claim to love, to conform to their ideas of what is right or perfect. They expect everyone to think as they do, feel as they do, believe as they do. When someone doesn’t, the controlling or abusive person will lash out. Usually at those closest to them. They can become angry, abusive and/or violent. They hurt the people they love. Sometimes to the point that they lose that person forever. Then, they assume that him/her never really cared for them in the

Power In Numbers
Many people believe that every number in its simplest form holds power. That if we find what is referred to as our “life” number, we can begin to understand our place in life. Using that information to our advantage, we may even gain new insight into our life and the lives of those around us.
There are two simple ways to find out what our life number is. The first is Name Numerology, and the second is Birth Date Numerology. No matter which one you choose to use, both can be very helpful and informative. Most people prefer both, believing it gives them a better advantage in life.
Numerology that uses our name is the preferred method of many individuals. Every individual’s name has a correspondence in numbers. Your name, whether your birth name or given name, carries a profound truth. Names and numbers hold a powerful symbolic meaning. This method has been used by students of the Kabbalah and the wisest psychics since the beginning of time itself.

Multiple Souls aka Multiple Personality Disorder
 
What happens when two souls are reincarnated into a single body? First of all, it is important to have a belief in the idea that every single person has a soul. The definition of a soul is the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal. The soul is what gives the body life. You can look at the soul as the cosmic energy, or the liquid, that fills the empty vessel that is our body. Without which, we would not truly be alive. Second, it is important that you have a belief in reincarnation. Reincarnation is the belief that our souls are reborn over and over again until we finish our unfinished business on this earth. Whether that business is helping someone in need, fixing a past mistake, or learning a valuable lesson. There can be many reasons why a soul may be reincarnated.
There have been several television series and movies that show this as a real possibility, including the films My Soul To Take and The Ward. Both movi
