Rise Above Your Circumstances

VIDEO: We’ve heard the saying: “Insanity is DOING the same thing over and over again while expecting different results”. Insanity is also ACCEPTING the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. Here, Ayize & Aiyana answer a young lady who asks if she should stay or leave her man because of his ongoing irresponsibility, disregard for her feelings, and lack of effort to move his family forward. When we recognize the shortcomings in our relationship….what do we do to change them? You can’t solve your current problems with the same thinking that created them. We have to be willing to look at the stone cold reality of our situation and then recognize and accept our role and responsibility in creating and even perpetuating that which we say we don’t want. If you want something different you’ve got to do something different. Bottom Line.

Stay In The Ring When You Want To Step Out

VIDEO: It’s natural and normal for relationships to hit rough spots. When those times occur how do you handle them? Do you step up to the challenge or step off? Oftentimes, if you stay in the ring long enough….you get tired of holding your hands up. You begin to see more clearly through your hurt and pain and subsequently increase the possibility for healing and resolution. However, if you step out of the ring and refuse to confront  conflict….your likelihood for reconciliation instantly evaporates.

When The One You Love Won’t Pull His Weight

VIDEO: What do you do when the one you love can’t seem to hold down a job and do their part to maintain the financial stability of your home? It’s a difficult space to be in when managing a family on minimal income and even more difficult when you know it could be better yet you and your partner can’t see eye to eye on how to get there. While this couple is not married, this young lady is at her wit’s end and says she doesn’t know how much longer she can do this. This is a rough space for any relationship to endure. What’s needed is healthy communication and tough love honesty. Without these two ingredients the relationship is vulnerable to downfall.
