Is your relationship in trouble? The first question you should ask yourself is: Do I want to save this relationship or do I want to leave it?

My recent articles have been discussing the natural emotions (sadness, love, anger, envy, fear) and their unnatural counterparts (chronic depression, possession, rage, jealousy, panic). This is the last article in my series of 5 and will focus on the emotion of fear. Then intent in writing on each of the natural emotions is to help you to stay in touch with what is the most real about you.

Our culture puts way too much emphasis on couplehood. There is too much pressure for people to feel obligated to be in a romantic, intimate relationship that will last a lifetime. Personal success, worth, and lovability is associated with romantic relationships. It's as if something is wrong with you or your life if you are not in a committed relationship. And if you are choosing not to date at all, then you must truly be damaged goods. But this could not be further from the truth. So, for all of you single girls out there, here are some things you should know:

The more I immersed myself in the work, the more I was inspired by ideas about how the position could grow and evolve over time. I used my creativity and determination to try to bring about all that I believed was possible. When I started, I was naive about the inner-workings of the organization and the power imbalances that existed. It quickly became clear to me that trying to create any kind of meaningful change in the organization was going to be incredibly difficult. As I embraced the challenge, I worked hard, did my best and felt like I was living true to my values of honesty, hard work, connection and responsibility.
The idea of a first blind can be terrifying. You don't know what to expect; you worry about whether or not the person will like you ... not to mention whether or not you'll like him! How should you act? What should you wear? Where should you go? How can you make sure you're safe? I recommend setting your boundaries and expectations about dating before you even make the first contact. And be yourself. Be yourself even more on the first few dates than you are in your daily life.
Knowing Is Only Half The Battle... Whether you're a man or a woman reading this, there are places we all know where we stop in our relationships...when we get discouraged, when we get tired, when we disagree, after the 10th try, or maybe after the 64th try. Wherever it is, we know that place for ourselves. The point past which we never venture & at which we consistently stop. This holds true in our relationships as well as it does in every other endeavor we undertake.
