If Dating A Narcissist Never Bothered You Before, Maybe It Will Now

Believing that you’re better than others can be good when you’re modest about it and don’t get carried away. An abundance of self-confidence can help you stand firm against criticism and lead you to success. Yet, just like anything else, narcissism is only good in moderation.

People who are completely narcissistic and totally obsessed with themselves deal with something called narcissistic rage, anger they express whenever they feel threatened or criticized.

Is Calling Someone Fat More Motivational Than Calling Someone Obese?

An article by a health reporter for BBC news stated, “according to England’s public health minister, Anne Milton, general practitioners and other health professionals should tell people that they are fat instead of simply calling them obese. ” Getting people motivated to lose weight isn’t easy, because putting it on is a lot easier than getting it off.

A Wedding To Die For

Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the most special in your life, one you’ll hopefully never forget. Well, sweethearts Valentina Anitra, 22, and Ignazio Licodia, 25, definitely won’t ever forget theirs, considering their photographer was accidentally killed by a gunshot. Their wedding took place at the groom’s parents’ home in Sicily; the wedding photographer, taking some, er, shots of the wedding party, asked the bride and groom to pose with a hunting rifle. Apparently, in southern Italy, especially in Sicily, firing guns at festivals and special family occasions is tradition. Somehow the gun went off and the photographer was shot in the head and died. Police are trying to establish if the gun went off while it was being handled by the photographer or by the couple. If a death on the day of your wedding isn’t bad enough, police said that the groom’s parents could be prosecuted because the photographer died on their property. The couple-to-be called off the wedding ceremony after the shooting. Their special day will definitely not be forgotten, unfortunately for not so happy reasons. Let this be a lesson to engaged couples everywhere — if you’re going to pose with a gun in your wedding garb, make sure the film is the only thing that’s loaded. [News.com.au]
