Broken promises

Broken promises

Most if not all relationships are built on trust and compromise. No matter how perfect a relationship is there will always be a need to compromise, because even if s/he is your soul mate, you two are still two totally different people with different tastes on different things. If you really love that person you would always find a way to make things work, and sometimes you would be willing to do make way for your partner.
But then there are some people who will take advantage of a partner who would give in to anything his/her partner wishes. A most common way people get what they want from their partner is emotional blackmail, and sometimes you will not even notice that you are being blackmailed emotionally. So read on for some warning signs that your partner may be subjecting you to emotional blackmail.

The manipulative Naysayer to your decisions

Of course when we want to do something, especially something big like for example working abroad or far from where you are with your partner or where your partner is, asides from your family your partner will be one of the first people to know about your decisions. And despite being supportive and happy with whatever makes you happy, they get upset and very negative.

They could put you on a guilt trip on how they will be lonely without you near them or some other kind of excuse to make you think that you are making a bad decision. They will not say it outright that they do not want you to do it but all the other signs are there, you will be able to tell when you see that your partner is more negative than usual and telling you all but the disadvantages of whatever decision you want but they do not.

Violent outburst and manipulative behavior

Violent outbursts and manipulative behavior

With the help of social media websites this is a little more common than before, and not to mention easier. Take for example you had a fight with your partner about something and the two of you are at a stand-off and not talking. You open your Facebook to try and clear your head, and lo and behold s/he has already posted a status ranting about how insensitive you are, how you do not care about him/her, etc.


Of course his/her friends do not know the whole story, they just read the status and assume that you are the villain of the story. S/he can make the status seem very one-sided, and no one would really know that the cause for the fight is actually the person who posted the status unless you step in and comment or whatever. But usually instead of doing that people just give in to their partner’s demands to save all the drama. Watch out for this.

 

S/he will threaten for physical harm

In most extreme cases some people threaten to hurt themselves or their partners in order for them to get what they want. This is basically a big red flag that your partner is an emotional blackmailer, and you should seriously get some couples counselling if ever this happens. Anything that involves getting people hurt, whether your partner or you, just for them to get what they want, is a tell-tale sign that your partner is definitely an emotional blackmailer.

Lot of people suffering from diabetes are mistaken that lowering their administered insulin level will help them to reduce weight. Not only is this dangerous, it is also highly ineffective. The weight loss that you experience is because of dehydration and loss of water in your body, which is temporary. As you increase the insulin levels to normal, your body will retain water to make up for the loss of it due to dehydration.

As a diabetic, it is very important to be careful in buying your groceries. Check at the back of the box to read the labels stating the sugar levels. Some items misguide people and buyers by putting sugar as glucose, fructose, maple syrup or any other terminologies. Get used to sugar terminologies and buy smartly.

A good healthy breakfast is important

Doctors have always said that breakfast is the most important meal. If you are a diabetic, then the importance of breakfast goes up even more. Start your day with a healthy breakfast to keep the sugar levels in your body under check. Oatmeal is a perfect way to start your day. It is high in fiber and takes time to digest. It also regulates the blood sugar level in your body throughout the day by releasing energy slowly. However, stay away from white oats or oats with added flavors or sugar. If you want to make your oatmeal sweet, add honey to the meal.

Exercise but do not exert

Right amount of exercise is the key for diabetes patients to control the blood sugar levels. If you exercise too less then the blood sugar levels may rise. However, if you exert too much the blood sugar levels may suddenly drop leading to dizziness and in some extreme cases may even cause a heart failure. Therefore, choose the right kind and type of exercise suited for you. Walking is best and preferably ask a doctor or health specialist for the right kind of exercise for you.


If you are a diabetic and your blood sugar levels fluctuates constantly, always carry a sugar testing kit with yourself and a small packet of sugar that you can pop in if the sugar level drops too much. These basic precautions can help you in times of distress.

Thinking about systemic investment plans?

Thinking about systematic investment plans?

Systemic investment plan is a procedure whereby an investor puts his or her money in a mutual fund (or investment account or some other investment) on a regular and ordered basis. The periods are always the same (monthly, yearly etc) and the amount invested is the same.


For example, an investor invests 200 dollars per month into a mutual fund X. It means that at the start of every month or on the agreed date, 200 dollars will be deposited in the account X. Consistency is the most important aspect and an investor should always stick to the rules and regulations.

Systemic investment plans advantages

1. It removes emotions from investment decisions

When investors have a chance to invest, they will always look for excuses of not investing. The hardest time to invest is always ‘Now’. If the market prizes are high, most investors will wait until the market prizes go down in order to invest. Maybe the market prizes may never come down and if the prizes were down as at the previous day, many investors will want to wait until the prizes stop dropping and stabilize. A systematic investment plan always removes the emotions that are involved. This is because, to be systemic, the bank fixes recurrent and regular dates. The investor follows the fixed date to the end.

2. A lower cost per share

A volatile market produces a lower average cost on each share than the real average cost per share. This is because the investors using a systematic investment plan buy fewer shares when the cost per share is high and more shares when the cost per share is low.

3. Greater wealth building and investment growth tool
