The Myth of the Nagging Wife — It’s Invisible Burns That Actually End Marriages

One of the best blog posts I think I have ever read. Please, give it a read. So many couples struggle with this day in and day out, I know I have (do).
Married or not, this ‘hurt’ drives couples apart and it’s heartbreaking.

Must Be This Tall To Ride

Burn victim with medical bandages Sometimes we’ll find it’s the husbands, or men, in relationships whose invisible wounds aren’t properly cared for. Just not most of the time. (Image/RawStory) We sometimes hear husbands complain about their stupid, bitchy, nagging wives.

Some of them probably are married to petty, unkind women who’ve been plotting all along to make their husbands’ lives miserable. Statistical probability and whatnot.

But that’s NOT who most women are.

Most women said yes to a man’s voluntarily offered marriage proposal.

This isn’t arranged marriage in medieval times. This is one adult voluntarily asking another adult to give up being single together to form a partnership and live together faithfully for the rest of their lives, share property and finances, and maybe have children together.

Maybe some people don’t mentally grasp the parameters of a typical marriage agreement, but I feel confident in speculating that most do. Most people know what they’re signing…

I haven’t been on the blogging train this week, I’ve been ill with man flu and when I’m not choking of phlegm I’ve been playing Splatoon 2! So I have been neglecting the blogging world. 

It is weird that I feel bad, like I’m avoiding that party I said I would go to? I felt compelled to explain my absence, you know, just incase every single person that follows me is sitting waiting for a blog that never shows…..talk about having anxiety! I actually feel more anxious that I haven’t blogged in a whole week, that I do that I haven’t been to work in a week. 

So just incase you all thought I was dead or finally ran away to Barbados with Alexander Skarsgård, I can very much assure you that I’m still here, Alexander was too busy with work to elope with me this week. Sigh.

Feel free to send me a big dose of blog mojo in the post. My address is 2529 WhatdoIblogabout, Bloggers Block, Help, Scotland. 

Telling you, that Splatoon is ruining my bloggers life. #addicted.

Self Care – Awareness

Become Self Aware to improve Self Care

^^ I’m copywriting that stroke of literacy genius up there^^

I never thought I would see the day that I, HonestK (that’s my name, check my birth certificate if you like), would not only have huge interest in self care, but that I would actually be writing a post about it. As I have mentioned previously in ‘Bitches be crazy’, I thought I was pretty immune to the mumbo jumbo nonsense that is mental health and self care, tainting it with the perception that it was all a bunch of crazy, for crystal swinging, essential oil sniffing, bendy yoga loving, incense burning nutters.

Well, it’s not. Continue reading “Self Care – Awareness”

Share the love…Friday?…

So hunners (Scottish for lots) of bloggers promote other blogs and well, I thought I might do this too! They usually use Feature Friday or Share..Sunday?…you know something alliterate or cool like that, but I’m going outside the box, I’m using share Friday, because hashtag rebel.

I came across a blog, that I really like, for several reasons. Firstly the blogger called me out and told me off for being ‘rude’ and arguing with another blogger. I wasn’t being rude, it was a bit of blogger ‘banter’ between myself and a fellow sassy pants.

At first I was ‘aw hell no, who dis?!’ but then I looked at her blog, to find she is an intelligent, smart and interesting young lady.

I am very taken with her blog, it’s a nice breath of fresh air on the back of ‘adult’ bloggers, with all our mental health, insecurities, death, love, abuse, like, dislikes subjects.

She may be young, but this lass has a head on her shoulders, and a strong heart – imagine telling someone off for thinking their where being rude and then apologizing when I explained the truth?! I don’t know about you, but it’s this kind of backbone and strength that I would like to see in government – forgot to write political rants in adult list above.

I don’t want to call her blog ‘sweet’ and ‘cute’ – she’s a strong independent lady! But it is sweet and cute and she is still a strong independent lady!

Honestly, go have a look and tell me if your heart doesn’t just melt at this amazing little woman.

Jesus, now I’m blogging about kids that melt my heart, bloody wain has ruined me!

30 Things…that really peeve me off

Continuing with the long run up to my big 3-0 celebrations (previous 30 things), I have complied a list of 30 things that really peeve me (piss me right) off. Maybe I’m getting old, bitter and grumpy as I’m fast approaching my 30s. Maybe I’m fed up with people’s shit. Or maybe I’m grumpy as I live off a diet of sugar and caffeine and it’s been at least 2 hours since my last sugar hit.

Who cares! I’m going to moan my tits off. Continue reading “30 Things…that really peeve me off”
