Do you ever worry that he’ll hurt you like your last boyfriend or husband? Or that he’ll leave? Or you’re jealous for no reason? When you feel like you have no control over your fearful or negative thoughts, it’s easy for them to start controlling you. And when that happens, you’ll usually sabotage your relationship. You may try to stop thinking of those things that pop in your head, but it doesn’t work that way. Instead, you need to replace them with a a different thought.
If you’re still pinning for a man who has long since moved on with his life and a new love, it may be what you believe about a previous relationship that’s keeping you stuck. These insights will allow you to look at the break up from a more empowering perspective which may just be the key to finally letting go of your ex once and for all and establishing a more gratifying relationship of your own. 1. You never consciously made the choice to let go of the relationship.
How do you know when a marriage is past the point of saving? With the advent of no-fault divorces in the 1970s, it became especially easy for couples to escape their unhappy marriages, despite there being no clear breach of the marital contract. After all, who wants to languish in a loveless marriage when one's true love may still be out there, waiting? Poor communication? Lack of respect? Absence of support? Diminished intimacy? Why deal with it!? The thing is, that initial happy-go-lucky honeymoon period doesn't last forever, and problems with respect and intimacy can easily crop up, no matter how much you care for each other. Healthy relationships take work that most people don't expect. Despite what the Hollywood rom-coms would have us believe, love isn't necessarily easy.
Have you ever had a man tell you he likes you, enjoys dating you, but isn’t ready for a relationship right now? I get letters from women all the time who are upset when the man they’re dating delivers this message. Usually, the woman paints him as a villain, when he’s actually just being honest. A man can be a good guy without wanting the long term relationship. The big question I always ask is, “Are you intending to make babies?” If not, why not just enjoy this man and see where it goes.
I put this commonly mentioned phrase in my book Men Made Easy because it’s so true: Men marry a woman hoping she’ll never change, but she always does; and women marry men hoping they will change, but they never do. Women make themselves crazy trying to get a man to change, to behave, or to ‘do the right thing.’ When you think about it it’s unbelievably rude and arrogant to think we have a right to tell someone else how they should be, or that we know better.
You may not realize it, but more than anything, that special man in your life wants to feel like you appreciate, respect, and accept him for who he is as a man. With that he’ll feel understood and understanding is–at least for him–the ultimate gift you can give him. Here’s an idea for a gift that is sure to melt his heart. You can put as much effort into it as you like. He won’t get all mushy and teary eyed, but he will appreciate what you will be telling him with this gift.
Too many women write to me explaining that their ex keeps in frequent contact, want’s to hang out, and even, occasionally, makes a booty call. This is very unhealthy behavior, on both sides. Him for doing it, and the woman for allowing it. If this has happened (or it’s currently going on), he’s got you on a tether. He won’t let go so you can find someone else, and he strings you along JUST enough to keep your hopes up. This is not good for you because it keeps you in a state of hopeful limbo.
“The spiritual path is a process of clearing away everything that is not you, clearing away the blocks to love.” Sharon Gardner Unfolding Journey There are times in each of our lives when we throw up our hands and ask why me? Many get bogged down in frustration, anger, and blaming of others, God or themselves. Unfortunately, if those feelings take hold they overshadow the positive that lies within each experience.
If you and your sweetheart is like most people, you both start the New Year filled with resolve to live better, only to have your strength melt into a little puddle at the first faint whiff of a doughnut. Good news: if you're in a romantic relationship, you've got someone in your corner. Follow this advice, and watch your resolutions go from impossible to totally doable right before your eyes.
Recently I wrote an article about "Recycling an Ex at the Holidays" on Huffington Post. It was inspired by my own experience of receiving an email from a former beau requesting my attendance at his office holiday party. It had been over 6 months since I had seen him. I pondered whether it was a good decision to be his date during the holiday season where both emotions and breakups are at an all-time high. Could we be just friends? Did he want to start over again?
I love Christmas. Its a great time of year for family, getting together, Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks, and gifts. Gifts rock. I like getting them. My wife and I differ on gift giving - she is one who likes to give ‘experiences’ not ‘stuff’. A trip together would be a better gift, in her mind, than say, diamond earrings. I'm the opposite, I like getting 'stuff'. I don't connect with ‘experience’ as much as I do a physical ‘gift’. No matter what your gift giving style is, this time of year is a great reminder of the gifts we should be giving throughout the year, and if it takes this particular season to help us remember what we need to be doing more often, that's a good thing.
