Topic of the Week: Relationship Longevity

Sometimes I learn really cool things in the area of social sciences or all varieties of science in general that I share mainly on my personal FB page. A lot of people told me they appreciate it and look forward to such posts, but it's been extremly hard to get my audience reached across the different social platforms. Keeping up with social media is like a full time job for me! I logged in to Instagram for the first time today after God knows how long. It's too much media! I wanted to do weekly posts where I share the majority of a topic I learned about through reading and research, or the most thought provoking article of the week and call it  "Article of the Week" or "Topic of the Week". I've been wanting to do it  for a while now, but haven't been making moves to accomplish any of that.

Sometimes my husband is working around the clock and unable to help and I'm understanding but the main thing is this:


I think I'd make a great counselor because I'm known to give expert advice based on science, facts, and experience, in a non biased way. I might pursue life coaching in the future to complement my degree in Psychology, but for today I'd like to share this tidbit below. It might be inspirational to improving your love life.
