Men and women are not equal due to the fact that based on our physiology we are different. From the hormones which reduce our stress, to how our brains work under stress, men and women are different. Where you can see our differences in action (and how our brains and bodies react differently) is in the ways men and women communicate differently. There is uniqueness between the sexes in the ways we communicate with each other. Our communication style lies at the heart of our expectations.
Few of us would deny that self-love is a good idea. Could you imagine telling a child, "Hey you, don't love yourself, that's selfish." Of course not. And chances are that if asked, "Do you love yourself?" most people would say, "Yes, of course I do," when in fact the majority of us don't really have a clue what self-love actually means, or requires.
I think cheating is the single worst thing a married person can do to their partner. It has the power to destroy the marriage, damage the kids (forever), and it touches everyone you knew as a couple as well as anyone you knew independently. It is like herpes; it never goes away but with age and the passing of time you learn how to better manage it. Couples who try to repair the relationship after the affair have an opportunity to actually make their marriage better. There are several myths in regards to cheating that couples find out can be proven untrue.
Why can't your step-kids make nice and behave like your own kids? Why do your step-children make it so hard for you to just like them, much less love them? My girlfriend is frustrated, says, "I don't think I can take this any more. I thought a blended family meant we'd blend. Instead, it's like 2 enemy camps, my kids on the one hand, polite, respectful, and his – 2 screaming meemees running amuck. "What does your husband say about it?" I ask. "Give it time," my girlfriend groans.
A woman wrote to me explaining that she’d been on a few dates and thought it was going great. Fun conversations, good time, kissing and a bit of petting, but no sex yet. She definitely felt strong chemistry. Then, wham, he wrote and said he wasn’t that attracted to her. My advice:
Do you find yourself taking on too much and then feeling irritable and hurried? Are you so compassionate that you: • Reach out to others and extend yourself way beyond your emotional, physical and financial needs. • Agree to do something and than anguish about your decision, wishing you had said no from the start.
Contrary to popular belief, men and women are not equal. Despite what we have been led to believe, let me write this again, men and women are not created equal. We are different, and the corporate world is now ready to embrace this reality, rather than continue to operate on the fallacy that men and women should be treated the same. Should I even broach the topic that corporate is still being run from a man’s perspective; meaning it is still weighted to men’s communication and leadership styles?
A funny thing happens when you've been with the same person for a really long time. Even if you still like them a lot, you may find that you're just not that into having sex with them… or so you think. Your libido may be waning, or there may be too many other details on your mind between work and managing the home... or kids clamoring for attention... there are plenty of excuses not to have sex.
I’ve been spending a lot of time over the past month strategizing how I want to run my business this year. Today it occurred to me that it would be really helpful to strategize my relationship in much the same way. Great things don’t just happen; they happen after careful, specific planning toward an intended goal and consistent action aligned with that goal.
We all want to do something exciting for Valentine's Day. It is the day dedicated to Love and the day we get the green light to feel special and appreciated by our mate. But sometimes, our day to day routine gets us stuck and it is hard to break out and get in touch with our creative sexy side.
