Mindfulness is one of those things that popped out of nowhere in recent years and has taken the world by storm. It is an incredibly effective approach to calming one’s thoughts, gain control over them, and learn to use them effectively.

Have you ever met someone who is so desperately in need for attention and love? The kind of person who keeps jumping from one failed relationship or dating experience to another?
