Having the right tools, right away, is an asset in any task we undertake. In the lifelong role as parent, starting out with the right tools is great. And for all the rest of us, assimilating the best possible tools as we go in the process of parenting is a great way to do it, also. You don’t have to attend workshops or travel to weekly sessions in order to assemble your own best set of tools. The key component is learning to trust your innate abilities. Common sense often trumps expert opinion in this vocation.
Have you ever thought to yourself, 'I just can't stand dating anymore.' Are you completely fed up with going out to meet yet another potential dreamboat? If you are, then you may be suffering from Low Frustration Tolerance.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love, you want the other person. ~Margaret Anderson Real love is never ownership, only stewardship of this moment's experiences. ~Karen Casey I like the quote by Margaret Anderson. However, I would add that in real love you also want your own good as well as the other person's good. When you are supporting your own and the other person's highest good, you never need to possess the other person.
Mr. Sexy Voice has been a regular phone sex caller. I never really knew what he looked like, but in MY fantasy, he was a hot, sexy, Italian-looking man with dark wavy hair, slightly muscular body, beautiful teeth, and a large unshaven cock. After a few years of chatting on the phone and sharing his most intimate secrets, Mr. Sexy Voice decided it was high time he send me a “hot” picture of himself. It’s always a dilemma for me, really.
It’s funny, I spent my first week here in Hawaii and I haven’t laid down once. Maybe 20 minutes here, 20 minutes there, but not for any extended period of time at all, have I been “relaxing”. I just really enjoy walking around, talking to people, checking people out, having short conversations, looking around, seeing all the different hotels, all the different sensations, all the many different sides to the ocean, talking to people in different hotels.
There are essentially 3 kinds of relationships: Traditional, Conscious, and Transcendent. Each serves it’s own purpose. Take a look at the descriptions below and ask yourself what kind of relationship you’re in and what kind of relationship you would like to be in. Remember, some people can’t or don’t want to do the necessary work too get to the next level. Are you willing to do what it takes to have the relationship of your dreams?
A big issue with online dating is that people often stop communicating abruptly and for no apparent reason. Most of my clients just figure that the other person lost interest or that they must of done something to turn the other person off, and they give up. As hard as it is not to take this stuff personally, you can’t let it get to you. People stop writing for all kinds of reasons, none of them having to do with you. Maybe they lost a job, are dealing with family issues, or just got bored . Let’s be real. Most of us don’t finish ever
A happy marriage rests on a foundation of unquestioned trust. If you want your marriage to be all it can be, you must know how to create this kind of trust. Most couples think of trust exclusively in terms of being sexually faithful, which is essential, but there's more to it.
Olympic athletes wear lucky socks and bras, and keep four-leaf clover rings and lucky dinosaurs. These are just a few of the lucky charms, or power objects, I read about during the recent games. I'm sure we would find more if we had an opportunity to rifle through all the athletes' belongings.
Ever since relationship counselor John Gray (click here for a bit more about him and his work) wrote his bestseller “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus”, promoting the idea that communication difficulties among heterosexual couples are unavoidable because men and women speak different languages, I’ve wondered whether that’s really true.
