Krunch Weekly with TK – Dating in the 21st Century

Krunch Weekly with TK – Dating in the 21st Century

There comes a time when a generation is just too obsessed with something. In the 70s our parents wanted nothing but to be hippies and to stick it to the man, then there are the 80s the generation that had the funk and got down to groove music.
Now it seems this generation and even the one before the recent is love or relationship crazed, there is nowhere you can go whether on social media or at the office relationship talk is dominating the general conversation that our social circles are having. What seems to be more frustrating is that instead of having the necessary conversation for people to grow in their relationships people are feeding each other lies and misleading people about what seems to be a healthy approach to a healthy lifestyle or relationship…

I am going to take this time to add my 5 cents worth of what I would consider having or going about having a healthy relationship.

1. Having open Lines of communication, this means you and your spouse have what we call open conversation and no one feels like they can never say their peace or their opinions
2. Being open-minded, this point is directly linked to the first point, you must not be a closed book and you only live in your head. Let your partner or spouse know what makes things interesting for you.

Lastly 
3. Be honest, I know it sounds cliche and something that you have already heard or read but be Honest with yourself first before you can be honest with anyone else, cause the lies we tell ourselves we end up believing and its the most dangerous. If something or someone is not for you anymore, or you have fallen out of love with a person, be honest enough with yourself to acknowledge it. whatever the case may be.

Krunch Weekly with TK – Living With Identity Crisis

Krunch Weekly with TK – Living With Identity Crisis

This week on our podcast I explore the Identity Crisis and the stigma that comes with living in a fully connected world
of social media and mixed races. It can be very difficult manoeuvring around the world if you don’t know your history and
past add being in a foreign country or environment where you are expected to speak or look a certain way. That is why we
have so many women going for cosmetic surgery just to feel more accepted or in trend with the world, i.e Butt implants,
breast implants, skin lightening all these are created by this bubble society has created in how we identify or where to belong

Join me in having this conversation and confronting Identity Crisis using the Hashtag #KrunchWeeklyWithTK or mention @Macnla on twitter
