Great sex is totally subjective. What I used to consider great sex does not even come close to subsequent sexual experiences, especially in recent years. I didn't know what I was missing because, at the time, I had nothing better to compare it to. Luckily for me, sex has become progressively better as I've learned so much about my own sexuality and relationships over the years. I have also learned a lot from working with couples on relationship and intimacy issues. In particular, I've gained great insight into women who have hang-ups with sexual intimacy.
This guest article from Psych Central was written by Kate Thieda. You may have noticed that people throw around the word “depressed” a lot. It’s largely become synonymous with “sad” or “feeling crappy for a while,” but for those who truly have depression, what they feel is far worse than just a few bad days strung together.
For many small business owners and aspiring CEOs, the news about the economy can be a scary thing to pay attention to. Tough economic times, failing businesses and a crowded market place are regular topics splashed across the headlines. Less buzzed about are the businesses that are succeeding. Rarely heard are the inventive ways that solo or small businesses succeed against the odds.
Reasearch shows that most people's heart shut down to give and receive love by the time they are five years old. Most addictions start by the age of four! This is all fascinating research and helps us better understand why couples relate the way they do. Whenever spouses go into "the dark place" with each other, you can bet they have fallen back into their childhood age where they "got stuck."
I was reading an email the other morning promising me yet another perfect and easy solution to my problem. I don’t recall what the problem was but that’s rather irrelevant. I’m sure I have problems that would love a simple and revolutionary solution. There are no short supplies of problems and there are apparently no short supplies of easy and quick fixes—people that will tell you they understand your pain and know how to remove your pain for only three small payments of… you fill in the blank.
One of the hardest stages in the relationship cycle is moving on. Many of us ask the question, "Why am I still thinking about my ex?" We've all suffered through nights when we couldn't sleep because thoughts about the ex just wouldn't quit. That's normal. Here are 4 reasons why we continue to think about the past: 1. Lack of closure.
Being a sensually empowered woman means that you are the keeper of your own mojo. It is that sense of self-confidence, self-esteem and sex appeal stemming from the core of your being and spiraling outward, enchanting every person around you. Sometimes we are in the flow, feeling good and looking our best. Other times we may feel like hiding under a mask, lacking self-esteem and poise. So how do we sustain our mojo and live life in balance?
The grief of abortion can travel through generations. One of the saddest cases I can recall in my counseling career, was an aborted baby’s grandmother. Her name was Dottie. She was such a sweet lady. I know she would have been a “picture book” grandmother had she been given the chance. Dottie found out about the abortion ten years after it happened.

I’ve been counseling couples in marriages for almost eight years. I am always amazed at the pain involved in relationships. Mostly, I never fail to be fascinated in every single case with the resilience that God gives us concerning a marriage union. When I look at all the reasons the marriage union dissolves, what seems to be the common denominator is how well couples do (or don’t) handle conflict.
By GalTime Love Coach, Johanna Lyman There are plenty of good- and some not so good- reasons to sleep with your ex. How can you tell whether you’re justifying a bad thing to yourself or if it’s really not a big deal? Let me start by saying that feeling guilty is not a good guide.
