5 Steps to a Better Relationship-- The Gift of Love

Lila here~ I started an experiment a few months ago, and have gathered enough research that I can confidently share it with you now, just in time for Festivus, Christmas, or New Years; whichever you celebrate.      It started with a premise that nobody wants to be miserable.  Even people that act miserable on a regular basis would rather not feel miserable.  But they’re in pain, so they lash out.  The pain they feel is the result of feeling unloved, unlovable or unworthy in some way.
