Growth is Best When Done Together
Relationships are the cornerstones of our lives, without them we have little opportunity to grow.

I live with and work with teenagers. They are constantly getting in fights with their peers. They can’t wait to become adults to have better relationships. I tell them, this won’t ever change. No one is ever going to be a perfect friend, partner, parent, employer, child or sibling, ever. But we do get better in learning to deal with everyone. We do get better at understanding ourselves in relationships. And it is within these relationships that we can try to make some change. It is in these relationships, especially when the going gets tough that we have the most growth. Without the mirror, in our hands, without our relationships whoever it be with, mother, sister, husband or child, we have little opportunity to change. So stick it out, just try to be your best self and watch yourself grow… in relation to others. And sometimes,you may even get to see you growing together.

Yes! 6 Steps to Having Healthy Hook Ups

By

I read a lot of articles bashing "hook up culture" — its a term du jour, kind of like "menage a trois" was in the 80's — but this term unlike the latter, is not associated with being sex positive and it's usually not written about in a positive light. We live in a society where it often seems like we ... Read more
