How to Make Mom Friends as an Introvert

As an adult making friends is not always easy. Add on being a mom and not leaving the house often it can be hard to meet other mom friends.

How To Cultivate Intimacy in Marriage Even When It’s Not Easy

Love should come naturally and easily.

If you really love someone it should come naturally.

Being in love feels easy.

This diatribe is very present in our culture. A couple meets, they enjoy being with each other, fall in love and live happily together. The relationship is a natural and easy progression. If they are meant to be together it will be undemanding of them as individuals.
