FALLING IN LOVE MAKES ALL YOUR EMOTIONS STRONGER AND YOU CAN HELP EACH OTHER THROUGH THEM!
When you find your mate, the world suddenly seems right. You are loved, your love is received. You believe that this is the absolutely best way to live.
Warning! Those stronger positive feelings are only part of the package. All of your negative feelings will be stronger, too. Arguments, fears, and struggles over how to spend time together are much stronger with a new love than with a new friend.
Are single middle-aged and childless women destined to become lonely old Crones? Why 33 is tough!
Today was a hallmark birthday for me. I turned an age that the numerology folk call the master number. The master number is one where both digits in your age are the same. Such as 11, 22, and for me, 33. It's hard to believe that I am 33. What happened to Sweet 16? I remember that day like it was today. Except my 16th birthday was not the day after a U.S. Election. My mind trips at the thought that I'm now old enough to be the mother of a 16-year-old had I been 16 and pregnant.
Here are some useful steps to practice so that your next conversation doesn't escalate.
We all sometimes react to things that our partner says or does (or to what he or she fails to say or do!) in a way that appears - when we look back on it after a little while - as disproportionate to the situation: shouting, losing control, blaming, and sometimes even throwing things, etc...
Although normal in all relationships, our emotional reactions benefit from being "monitored" and understood, so that we do not harm our relationship over time in a way that is beyond repair.
Anger often becomes an addiction for adolescents. Learn to help them quell this fiery emotion.
A recent Harvard Medical School study found that nearly 8% of adolescents experienced bouts of extreme anger, sufficient to be diagnosed as "intermittent explosive disorder" — a form of mental illness. I'm surprised the number isn't higher.
Just how well do we read our intimate partners? As long as we’re composed, we’re generally pretty good at it. But whenever our threat emotions (i.e. anxiety and anger) are triggered, accuracy goes right out the window.
Emotion-driven misinterpretations spell trouble for relationships. They lead to escalating accusations, disappearing trust and constricting hearts. If only we could recognize how emotions shape perceptions, we could restore close connections with our partner. That’s the aim of this primer.
Wonderful things can happen with aging when we care more about how we feel than how we look.
How many of us have taken off our glasses to look in the mirror, examining the laugh lines that frame our eyes and the parentheses that frame our mouths. It's hard not to notice that some of the outward signs of aging are showing up more and more in your face and your body.
Learn how to effectively control your anger to get more of what you want from life!
Anger is the emotional energy within each of us that rises up when something needs to change. If you act on the need to create change, your anger can be channeled effectively. If it’s not redirected to something effective, your frustration will build, sometimes to hurricane force.
Anger that is allowed to get out of control is as destructive as a hurricane, but anger that is expressed in healthy ways can “clear the air” just as a mild rainstorm does. If you express your anger clearly and cleanly, without too much drama, it will be like a cleansing rain, leaving you calm and relaxed. The problem will then be solved.
Many women don't want to push men away with negative emotions but sharing can make him love you more
Do you find that you have a pattern of trying to hide your negative feelings from a man who isn't treating you the way you wish he would?
When we women love a man and feel that his feelings for us are not as strong as ours are, we feel A LOT of intense, scary feelings, most of which are negative. We are bitter, sad, scared, anxious and even angry.
We also feel like we have to hold these feelings inside. We feel we have to stuff them down, keep them under wraps, so that our man doesn’t get turned off by our draining emotions.
