Do you want to have better, stronger, more stable relationships in your life?

Are you willing to put forth some effort and try some new things?
Then you have found the right place!
I am Samantha and I am starting this blog to help people have better relationships in their lives. Strong relationships make us more happy, healthy, and confident. They make the world go ‘round. Through this blog I will use humor, and sometimes some tough love, to try to help you think about the relationships you want in your life and how to make them become reality.
Throughout my life I have struggled with all types of relationships. Family relationships, romantic relationships, work relationships… all relationships were fraught with conflict and bad communication. Including my relationship with myself. I made a whole slew of mistakes trying to overcome things out of my control. It has only been in the last couple of years that I decided I had to make some hard changes, and fast. I work on myself, and my relationships, constantly. Through this, I have learned quite a few things. There are also a lot of things I will continue to learn and grow from. I want to share all of these things with you.
My educational background was built on the foundation that helping people would be my lifelong purpose. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I also obtained a Master’s Degree in Human Services, concentrating on Child and Family Studies. Professionally, I have experience working with children and families who have experienced different levels of trauma and dysfunction. Now I am ready to pave my own path helping others facing these same types of concerns, but in a new, and unique way!
I know there are tons of people in the world struggling with different types of relationships in their lives who may be looking for a new strategy or who just need a little guidance in the right direction. That is what I want to be here for. I have found happiness I did not think I would ever be able to when I really started putting the effort forth, and I KNOW you can too!
I am new to writing in a non-academic way so this is a new challenge for myself. But helping people find happiness through their relationships is something I am passionate about, so here I am. My goal for this blog is very simple, to get people the relationships they deserve to have. To help people with a hugely important aspect of their lives in an entertaining, but straight-forward way.
