When Marriage Feels Like a Meat Grinder

By melanie jean juneau, published on Jan 7, 2013

The funny thing is, it is only when you face a crisis in your marriage and seek counselling, that anyone mentions that all marriages go through the meat grinder stage.

In fact marriage is the perfect set-up for conflict. Put two flawed people together from opposite traditions, backgrounds and expectations who love each other and watch them "let their hair down". Both feel secure. They trust the other and so they relax their polite facades. Soon their wounds begin to surface. Usually they only react and blow up with each other. They push each other's buttons.

Which side to support, Palestine or Israel?

By Rahul, published on Nov 29, 2012

Too much muttering is going on among many Indians about the Palestine Israel conflict. So many photos of dead children, burned houses, crying mothers and many more are circulating on facebook declaring their support for Palestine. Most of it insist or even plead to the Indian government to support Palestine and criticize Israel for its brutal actions.

How stupid we are…we are failing and still claiming our success over the mindless bloody conflicts, over the disgusting rituals, customs and sickening beliefs…I am aghast to see this erosion…but who cares…a loner is a loner…still I wish to be not what many wish to see me as…my melancholic aspirations surely would be defined as out of box thinking but rest assured, I won’t feast ... (more)

Poem Two: our peace

By Ahsan Daredia, published on Nov 23, 2011

with God’s choice, you’re matched with a life

the very poor

the simple middle. you ask questions but the answers are

endless.

a tiny prayer offered before a scarce meal

gluttony at it’s finest & greed sky high

our world becomes demoralized by the second

we hope

i pray

she withers away

he needs a casket

but who can afford one?

one human race

divided into many useless groups

who do you follow?

your mosque, your solitude

What the *&?**$?#? to do about conflict?

By TonyBerkman, published on Jul 31, 2010

Conflict at work, at home, caused by differences of opinion is an inevitable part of lives. Each of us has a different way of managing conflicts. In business conflicts are an important part of creativity, solving problems and overall business growth. It could be said that the same applies to our personal relationships.
