We agree. Inflatables look fun and cool; especially now that they can look like giant birds gliding over the water. But they have been too small if the new standards are anything to go by since they can fit only two people at a time.
But not anymore. We now have enormous pool floats that will comfortably sit up to six people at a time!
They are sold under the description “personal animal islands” on Sam’s Club. They are not exactly cheap, however, as you will have to part with about 150 bucks to own one. Regular two-people alternatives go for about 20 to 30 bucks.
But you are getting yourself something extra here. For instance, cup holders. And don’t forget the wow factor that comes from relaxing and enjoying yourself in the water atop a giant flamingo, peacock, or swan.
These inflatables are not meant for your average pool either, as they measure about 10 feet wide and 10 feet long. So, you might have to stow it away until your next visit to the beach.
There has never been a better time to own a giant bird, wouldn't you agree?
And no, this does not mean your partner has to agree with everything you say. What we are talking about is the courage to express yourself regardless of what your opinions are.
You can never agree on everything.
The important thing is communication. And it should go both ways. But simple as this relationship requirement is, many couples are torn apart by poor communication.
Understandably, not everyone is an expert at communication, especially when it comes to their feelings. But there is a trick to overcome this. Try not to hold anything on the inside.
Say everything, even things that make you sad or angry. Your partner will not be able to figure out what you are feeling if you don’t express it openly.
In other words, you like to save people from problems. People come to you when they need someone to rescue them and you help them out every time.
While this is a great virtue, it makes it hard for you to change your mind, even when you should. To avoid feeling like you are a liar, you put yourself through situations you don’t like.
You, or anyone else for that matter, deserve to be in a relationship that is secure and free from manipulation based on your insecurities.
Love is described as having matured when the partners are calm, confident and unafraid. When you are certain of your partner’s love and respect for you, and you have the same to offer, then nothing should worry you.
So, if you come across such a relationship, hold on tightly. Many people let go and regretted it all their lives. Don’t be among them.
