Friendships between married friends and single friends can be complicated, but worthwhile friendships will survive the complications!
As a life coach, I am often asked the all important question, “How do I develop self-confidence?” My answer is always, “One step at a time.” Let me give you an example. Sheila was extremely overweight. She had struggled with diets and weight loss programs for years. She would lose weight only to gain it back. Her self-confidence was chipped away a little more with each perceived failure.

You have to wonder where researchers come up with these questions…
Recently I have noticed more and more limiting beliefs from my male clients. A look at the limiting beliefs that hurt a man's dating game.
This scenario has probably happened to most people at one point in their lives. How many times do we hear of couples reuniting at a high school reunion 10-20 years later? That lost love that got away because the timing wasn’t right. Is it really bad timing or is it really just the wrong person? How Do We Know?
Do you and your partner ever dwell on the positive in your relationship? Maybe you should. It’s really easy to dwell on the negative in our personal lives and relationships. The brain is wired to have a negativity bias. In other words, it is more reactive to negative stimulii.

As Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony pack up their metaphoric and literal luggage to begin their recently announced separation, several thoughts come to our collective consciousness including: “big surprise”, “wonder why they broke up” and “is EVERY celebrity marriage doomed to break up eventually?”
