    Another unplanned pregnancy - how to cope up in this kind of situation?

    I agree that kids are blessings to us parents. That's why even though I don't know how to handle 3 kids yet, I would not give them up for adoption. I think we will get through this, if we would just work harder. I just hope that this will be my last pregnancy. :D

    Success and Obstacles

    Obstacles make success sweeter. And if we haven't experienced failure yet, then we are still an incomplete person. I am just thankful that I have my kids to motivate me to work harder. I may not be successful yet, but at least I am slowly trying to get there. :)

    This works for me!

    I lost weight when I was just 21, even if I didn't do it on purpose. What I did is to eat less and drink more water every meal. It's not starving yourself so I think it is a good way to lose weight for you guys who want to shed extra pounds.

    Are there any Christians here? and if so,do you still believe in a coming Christ?

    I am a Christian at heart but I am not sure if Christ's coming will still take place. For sure there are only few people who believe in this but whether it will happen or not, I will just prepare myself and I would be more than willing to embrace my destiny. :)

    Have you started to save for the future?

    I must admit that I am as broke as any poor person now. I am just lucky to have a shelter that I don't have to pay for and my husband still has his job, even if it really is enough for us. With that being said, I am still struggling to save any penny on my bank account as our combined income is...

    Relationships

    I just want to add that we should also put God as the center of our relationship so that it will be stronger. And when the couple is both God-fearing, I doubt it if there would still be any major problem that will come along. :)

    I so loooove mangoes! I have always been since my childhood days. And it is also making my mouth water now that I am on the first trimester on my pregnancy. Good thing it has a lot of nutritious benefits. For me, another benefit it gives is that it prevents me from vomiting. :)

    When In A Fight: Forget The Past

    I think it is just normal for us to remember the past when we are mad or upset. It's our emotions that is urging us to. But I agree with you, reminiscing the bad times will not solve anything. And if we don't have any good to say in a fight, might as well shut it off, and just talk when things...

    I agree with our fellow posters here. You just have to be true to yourself if you are willing to accept her two kids or not. You won't want end up being frustrated in the future because of regrets. I suggest you get to know her family, especially the kids, slowly. In a month or so, I think...

    Drawing Lines and Setting Boundaries

    I agree with the setting boundaries and drawing a line. As a general rule of the thumb, all too much is bad. Same goes to relationships. If you give too much, chances are, you are more likely to be abused or taken for granted. What's healthier is that, we will still have our own individuality...
