    Nakisha King Talks Relationships with The Relationship Handbook

    The Relationship Handbook is a book that focuses on martial problems, how to keep your mate happy and more. Nakisha King has written a wonderful guidebook for those who are in love, falling out of it, and even looking for it. This book will be able to teach you some great things about relationships and even about yourself. Also known as “ Madam Cupid” Nakisha even has her own blog talk radio show where she talks about several topics when it comes to relationships.

    Going through a tough marriage with her ex-husband, Nakisha thought of writing “ The Relationship Handbook”. “ I didn’t want to bother my friends with my issues dealing with love, life and relationships. So, I decided to write them down,” King says. King says, “ Happiness with someone does not come over night. You have to know your worth first and be happy within yourself.” “ A lot of my relationships didn’t work in the past because I wasn’t content with myself, “ King says. When she spoke those words, it made me think of my past relationships and why they did not work also. It all starts with you first. Being content with who you are as a woman or a man. Being comfortable in your own skin.

    As a writer, it is hard to write one book let alone ten books and be able to have that support. I had to ask Nakisha, “ Did your family support your book and can they relate to it as well?” King says, “ Yes, especially, the ones that call me and ask for my advice. I can only tell them what worked for me. The things that may work for me and my marriage, may not work for the next couple. People like to only tell the positive things in a relationship, but they don’t want to tell the negative side. People are leaving out the bad things that happened.”

    When people are in relationships, they love to broadcast their love on social media. Don’t get me wrong, that is okay to do, but what happens when you are just hiding the fact that you are unhappy and want others to think different? Nakisha says, “ You know, I don’t know why people do that. It maybe reality TV, or people don’t want to look down upon. I’m a happy person all the time. But, I am the kind of person to keep it real and say I’m not happy. People need to think about the kind of people they are attracting and have to work on themselves. A lot of people are in relationships for the sake of being in one.” Nakisha is in a new marriage and has children by other men. She uses her relationship skills in her own life. “ I use the same tools in my life. My children’s father and husband all get a long and do what is best for the kids. I want to do seminars with marriage couples and implement these skills”, Nakisha says. King is taking classes to be a life coach where she will be able to counsel and give seminars for married couples. “ Sometimes people bring out the best in people and sometimes they bring out the worst in people. My ex-husband is a winner just like I am, but we were not winners together and I am okay with that. I learned from that relationship”, King says. No matter what the circumstance maybe, or the situation everyone is entitled to be loved and happy with someone. The Relationship Handbook gives many tips on how to achieve just that!
