Lindra Fishleder, a faculty for the counseling department, hosted a speech about relationships and invited everyone who was interested. Some of the topics she talked about are, how parents connect with successful relationships, how to distinguish a good relationship from a bad one, and which relationships to avoid. “Relationships vs. Fairy Tales” was on Nov. 17, in the Business building room B-202.
Diana Ruiz is a GCC student studying for Elementary Education and attended the“Relationships vs. Fairy Tales” speech. “I think it’s interesting and not a common concept to talk about, but very necessary.”
According to Ruiz, students in campus would of benefit from this event. “I am going out of curiosity and at the same time, just because I think it’s a topic is really needed,” Ruiz said. She believes that students that are around they’re 20’s, can be confusing years.
“With so much going, and our busy schedules, we definitely can use some advice and tips in order to be able to differentiate between what is good and bad in relationships,” Ruiz said.
Ricardo Romero, a GCC student majoring in communications, also attended the speech. “You know, it’s not that I need the advice, but sometimes dating can be rough, and this speech might help me answers some questions that I have,” Romero said.
Romero, says he is a very busy man. He works, goes to school, and is also a musician, so he tries to practice every chance that he gets. Nevertheless he is also in a relationship and struggles to make time for that relationship. “I think that the hardest part of being in a relationship at this age, is making time for the people you care about most because you don’t want to see them go,” Romero said.
