The Next Dr. Phil ( and much better!)

I've figured out what I should be! I should be a relationshiop-counsellor!

No really, I'm serious!
I know exactly what is wrong (or right) in a relationship and I think I know how it can be fixed too (if it needs fixing).
Okay, I know what you're thinking. She's single, she's only 26! What the hell is she talking about?!

First of all, I've been in relationships! (I see you go "uh huh! Big freakin deal!" But hear me out ok!)
Secondly, I have the advantage of observing relationships from the outside, which makes me all objective and so much more better than the person actually in it.
And thirdly, I'm good at it! ( I really am, the reason I'm single is cos I'm so good, it's hard to come across someone as good as me!)

So I was thinking, I should start a counselling center or whatever. Give gyan to people. Make them happier. And make money off my gyan, and make me happier!
Ok, they may not like my advice too much, (You're too immature! Go hike the AT and come back to me in a year. That'll be 500 bucks, thank you!) but I'd be right! And they would be happy too, in the long run!

A lot of people who get into relationships don't really seem to realize what they're really getting into. They only think of the love and the fun part of it all. And when the going gets rough (as it inevitably will) they panic and go Whoa! I didn't sign up for that! Then they think, "okay! so this was a bad idea, I don't know what I was thinking!" and break up and brood until they "fall in love" again. Or not. Whatever. Which is why I think people started the whole marriage thing in the first place.
With a marriage, When the going gets rough, you're stuck with each other, and you try and get it resolved and make the best of things, which might actually improve the relationship. ( Of course, this was before divorce lawyers got into the picture, bloody sharks!)
Nowadays, people just don't seem to realize that the going does get tough. They don't seem to look beyond the romantic dinners and the walks on the beach. I guess we've all been watching too many movies and not realizing that movies end! People who are mature enough to plan their future to the point of retirement even before they hit 30 don't seem to have a clue what to do when their relationship with their partner turns sour. They complain "things are not the same anymore! Maybe I made a mistake", without really looking back at themselves and to try and see what can be done to fix it.
Does it need to be fixed or should you let it go? Did it feel special in the beginning? Do you have a lot of happy memories? Do you think there is a possibility of more happy memories than sad? (see what I mean, I'm goooood! :D)

And all this would just be in my first session! So what do ya say?!
Would I be great or would I be great!

Tut tut Sonia.I must say u're way too ambitious.Your views are pessimistic and u don't seem to have gotten over your past, your own self.
I'm in search of true love and u'd be giving me an "everything looks pale to the jaundiced eye" type of counseling!!!
Get someone nice to love, and make a success of it and u'll qualify.
Good luck!

This is anonymous again.I liked your previous article on Valentines Day.I mean, you tell it just the way it is.You're a perfect no- non sense type of girl.Don't worry, you're edging closer to becoming one good counselor!

FR: yep! :D and i'm ok, could be better (i've fallen ill). how are you?

KJ: you're on! i'll do you for free, but if you're satisfied with the results, then you gotta recommend me to your friends! whatsay?! :D

Anon: I don’t like it when people read and understand what they prefer to and leave rude anonymous comments.
I think it’s cowardly. If you must leave a comment based on what your interpretations are from my writing, then why don’t you leave me a link to your blog where I can do the same? That's only fair isn't it?
Don’t make assumptions on my life from what you read in my blog. What I’ve written is true, but all of it is just a fraction of my life, and you cannot pretend to be an authority on me or my life by it. There’s a lot going on in my life that you have NO idea of, immaterial of who you may be, Anonymous.
