ARE YOU WITH THE RIGHT PARTNER?
During a seminar, a woman asked,” How do I know if I am with the right person?”
The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, “It depends. Is that your partner?”
In all seriousness, she answered “How did you know?”
“Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it’s weighing on your mind.” replied the author.
Here’s the answer:
Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love.
People in love sometimes say, I was swept of my feet. Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU.
Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It’s a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.
Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.
At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, “Am I with the right person?” And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone
else. This is when relationships breakdown.
The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.
People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes.
Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it.
I’m not saying that you couldn’t fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later.
Because (listen carefully to this)
The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the Person you found.
SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know
WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it.
Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable.
Love is therefore a “decision”. Not just a feeling.
Remember this always: the universe determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go!
why doesn’t this have more notes
climb a mountain together
This was something I really needed right now.

… What is this eargasm i’m having?!
I reblogged me after two seconds
[ PART 1 ➩ about their personality ]
PART 2 ➩ about their Music
If you think “wow DBSK has a million songs,” it may be true lol
Speaking about the songs, I will not detail every style and genre of music DBSK can play any musical genre, I believe - especially Jaejoong who has a soft voice and is known for that. But, simplifying that part of the answer (because I’m afraid this post will be alittle much…) I’ll include JYJ songs because I want to.
* accounting for new fans: DBSK (Dong Bang Shin Ki) is TVXQ’s original name (the korean name), TVXQ (Tong Vfang Xien Qi) is the chinese name, and THSK (Tohoshinki) is the japanese name. [all mean the same thing Rising Gods of the East]. JYJ is
- acapellas ➩ DBSK is widely known for their acapellas. Of course that it is a lot of talent, but they also worked hard to build this magnificent harmony, I’ not speaking of something just beautiful, but perfect
there are maaaany acapellas huh? my fav are Whatever They Say <- please watch it, even that Yoochun was eating he can sing along!! plus Jaesu moment, and In The Still Of The Night (this is a cover but who cares)
Yunho+Junsu acapella ➩ I like this audio, Yunho and Junsu started singing while they were walking in the streets of Paris. Without any help of any electronic device to edit their voices, this is pure talent.
Towa Ni (cover)
- Breathtaking Singing. Ballads - DBSK live performaces are impressive.
DBSK beathtaking ➩ [ x ]"Sing for me, before leaving, spread your wings and play the bolero.

Of course there are many other recommendations, but I’m just writing the songs which I remember first. As you may have noticed the lack of newer songs (TVXQ duo) but live HQ video quality is getting difficult to find. As I’m spending too much time looking for these links, I’ll simply suggest other songs and post lnks of non live version. I’m sorry.
"My love’s spilling over, it’s too infinite for words
And falls down as tears of tender color
I love you so deeply, so dearly
And never stop loving you.”

みんな空の下 ➩ FREAKING AMAZING
그 아픔까지 사랑한거야 ➩ hehehe Junsu’s audition
(and more…. there are so many many songs)…
Yoochun ➩ He loves to compose and write songs, he also loves to sing, but he does not have many solos as Junsu."I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you my only love.
Although I shout with my heart, I can’t call out because you’re too precious.” — The Empty Space For You (Yoochun).
highly recommended ➩ One Last Cry | Magic Castle | Drunk Confession(cover) | My Girlfriend | I love You | The Empty Space For You | Love By Love | Walking With Her in Spring | Like Weather | That Song (cover) | Old Song |

How Deep Is Your Love (cover) ➩ sgadtsadtsytrtsfgsdytfys
[Love By Love OT5 version] ➩ *one of my favs DBSK songs btw*
Jaejoong ➩ As Yoochun, Jaejoong loves to compose and write songs but he also sang many songs for other artists. So below are some of his songs and other songs are covers. Here I am putting together performances of him still within the TVXQ, as a member of JYJ his acting performances as a solo artist."At the narrowed crossroads, you put wings on me.

Moonlight ➩ You can hear his breathing through the softer notes? His perfection does not surprise me anymore. Of course as a member of DBSK, Jaejoong’s songs sound better live than in studio versions. Raise your hand if you agree.
Precious ➩ perfection.
化粧 ➩ One of the saddest performances I’ve ever seen, because I simply can not stand to see him crying … even though he cry in the middle of the song, his voice has not lost the pitch/tuning. Just perfect. I can imagine how his throat was tight as he tried to hold back tears…
僕のそばに ➩ Jaejoong’s version is the best version, definitely
Changmin ➩ Although he has a amazing and impressive vocal, unfortunately it has a few solos. I have mentioned two solo songs in the rock session, now please listen his ballads (most of it is cover, i don’t care lol)“Abandon some of your pure heart and paint sweet fantasies with me.” — Wild Soul - Changmin
highly recommended ➩ Person Like Tears | Confession | covers: More Than Words | I Love You | Just Like That | When I First Kissed You | Ting Hai | Whenever, Wherever, Whatever | Big Time | Upon this Rock | Half Moon (that’s cute btw)
AMAZING MAKNAE HIGH F*CKING NOTES (collab Changmin, Trax, Super Junior) - this is a suju’s music btw
Yunho ➩ Our leader is the principal dancer, he is respected and well known for that. So he doesn’t have many solo songs, but from what you can see, his solos are incredibly sexy as himself."My real love needs to be in my heart" — Check Mate (Yunho)
- duets and trios
There are many songs, I could tell from the beginning that I recommend all the songs of TVXQ / JYJ, lol, but i’m just suggesting some songs for reference ^_^

Yoochun/Changmin ➩ I Knew I Love You (cover)

Where a different me stands again
With a small smile I can laugh” — Holding Back The Tears (TVXQ)
few others songs I like too much ➩ ღ On & On ღ | Love Is Never Gone | I Know | BREAK OUT! | BLINK | Stand Up! | INCREDIBLE (feat. Quincy) | Ocean | Tea For Two | PROUD | Love After Love ღ | Beautiful You | Holding Back The Tears
SCREAM ➩ This song is the theme song of the Japanese horror movie “Sadako 2”. I love this song and this coreo.
FORCE + Purple Line ➩ JUST EPIC
Together ➩ Due to Emoshinki feelings, sometimes I just can’t watch this, but, its freaking cute, people should watch
Paradise ➩ for some reason it calms my heart
Hi Ya Ya Ya ➩ oh my God, hahaha cuteness overload
I’m sorry if I didn’t mention any of your fav songs. I’m sorry if I wrote something wrong and I’m sorry if I forgot to mention to something - and it wasn’t. Anyway, I’m not a specialist in DBSK. I hope I have helped in some way. Maybe I’ll re-edit this post! You can ask me anything, I was happy if I can help you.
(keep in touch @Back_to_Five)
reblogging because I update this post (for the fourth time)
need update this post once more u_u’
Just so you know, I intend to make the third part
how to kiss a boy
- grab his waist

- steal his wallet
- dont even kiss him

We’re celebrating a Steven Moffat Appreciation Day on November 18.
In preparing for that special occasion, we thought it would be a lovely idea to have a pre-celebratory meme, of sorts. A topic for each day of the week leading up to the big day.
In honor of Wicked’s 10th anniversary, I give you the fantastic Julia Murney and Kendra Kassebaum.
Side note: Can we talk about Julia’s BRILLIANT comic timing at the beginning of the number? Seriously, this is part of the reasn why she’s my favorite Elphaba.
I want to experience everything I can; make the bad decisions when I’m young enough to recover from them and don’t have to answer to anyone about it. Maybe I’m just hitting the phases of teenage rebellion 7 years too late.
is the answer I get what I really feel and think or what I’ve conditioned myself to say and believe?
