Selfish Husbands: A Crippling Stigma to a Relation

I have died every day waiting for you

Darling don’t be afraid; I have loved you for a thousand years

As Christina Peri’s  renowned song resonates, we are blissfully drifted into surreal realms of wistful thinking, and our entire being desperately longs to savor in our thirsty souls that coveted emotion called love.

Defiant Child: How to Deal with the Difficulties

Rummaging through the pages of history, one won’t fail to notice that majority of the world’s greatest achievers were essentially strong willed.
