    Anytime I think of how far Ghana has come after 63 years of independence, I am galled by the feeling of being born in this part of the world and I am forced to imagine if this is how our ancestors wanted the country to be after a long strive for independence.   There is no doubt that since Ghana’s independence in the late ’50s, our leaders have undertaken all steps to develop this country.

Societal norms and expectations often rule us in our relationships. These unspoken “standards” not only dictate how we behave interpersonally, but also our perceptions of ourselves. Oftentimes, we get caught up in who we think we are supposed to be. Whether it is to attract a love interest or simply to gain acceptance, we tend to overlook a key aspect of loving relationships: a feeling of safety. Whether or not you feel loved in your ... more
