From birth, we’re taught to be polite and generous. Say please. Always say thank you. Give of yourself. Somewhere along the way we unconsciously learn that asserting boundaries is to be selfish and unkind. In truth, saying NO can actually be a life saver and game changer, not only for you, but for the betterment of your relationships as well.
Each one of us carries our past emotional wounds. This wound can ooze and open when confronted with the energy of the same experience that brings up our lack of love. Every relationship or experience that brings up the same void in us can trigger us to shut down part of our heart, creating walls like armor.
I’ve had a lot of clients "break up" with me over the years, with out as much as a "goodbye" or a "thank you." I have a confession: It hurts. You might think this kind of thing is no big deal -- after all it comes with the territory. Professionals learn to block and repress these kinds of feelings, right? You can’t really hurt your coach or therapist, can you? Well, you can! Even football players get their feelings hurt.
Let's analyze your most recent first dates.

If your sex life also seems like an old, stale cheeseburger, maybe it's time for you to review what's going on in your relationship.
Okay…here’s a question. When is the last time someone said goodbye to you with a “Take care!”. Now here’s an even better one – when is the last time you did take care? Not care of your partner or husband, not your kids, your aunt Matilda or your co-worker, but yourself. And what does taking care of yourself look like to you?
Every once in a while, I meet a potential client whom I consider to be a dating snob. What is a dating snob? Someone who thinks they are too good for everyone out there and would rather sit home alone or hang out with their married friends than mingle among other singles and subject themselves to singles events.
Love Is A Habit (and so is wealth) Every week or so, I receive an email or facebook post asking “when is my soulmate going to show up?….I’ve done the inner work, I’ve cleared my chakras, I’ve done therapy for 20 years, I’ve read every book, I’ve written out my “List”- WHEN will he/she show up??!”
