Is Your Partner’s Love Stronger Than Your Ego?

Dear English Learner,

The romantic topic of today is on a small three letter word called, ‘ego.’ Both men and women can have an inflated ego, although society usually considers men to be more egotistical than women. This is something that I don’t agree with as I have met both humble and prideful people from both genders.

To be egotistical means to value the way other people see you; to care strongly about your reputation. Moreover, egotistical people are often willing to allow harm to come to themselves or others if taking a more humble approach seems less desirable.

Dear English Learner,

Today, we will chat on the topic of ‘peace.’ Peace is a very deep word, but in relationships, to have ‘peace’ means to be in a relationship without anger, loud voices (shouting), rudeness, or hitting. You may be in a peaceful relationship and not know it. If you are good friends with your partner and you barely argue – your relationship is peaceful.
