  • A Down and Dirty Guide to Forgiveness

    By:  Lisa Hayes “Oh!  Wow!  I just told you I forgive you and I instantly feel all better.”, said almost no one ever. Forgiveness is such a complicated subject.  There are enough books and platitudes out there on forgiveness to keep you busy reading and musing into eternity.  And yet, for all of the wise words written and spoken on the subject, forgiving  is often incredibly hard to do, if not seemingly impossible. I think most of us get the basics of forgiveness as adults.   They go something like this: Forgiving doesn’t mean you condone the behavior that caused harm.

I made sure our bills were paid, the house was tidy enough to bear, that our son was fed before falling asleep at night, and that Dana had the balance of my paycheck so that she could do whatever it was she needed to do until the next payday. I felt I did what I could to contribute in any way I could. But I never truly felt we were a family. “Family” – to me – is predicated upon the existence of love between the parents.

    Married 10 years. So a couple of months ago I (30M HD) got into a huge fight with my wife (29F LD) telling her I was unhappy with where I was (as a priority) in the marriage. My biggest gripe was the lackluster sex. We reconciled (I realized that I had just dumped it on her without her having any clue I was unhappy and was being unreasonable). She took lackluster sex to mean I simply wanted more of it. She made an effort, initiating about 3 times a week. I thought she was on board with it but I had my suspisions that she was just doing it to keep me from leaving. Last week confirmed it. In a…

    Hello everyone, My husband and I have been married for over 10 years now, and this past year has been extremely hard for me to recover from, and I want to get a divorce. Before you read further I would like to point out that we have three young daughters (7, 4, 1) and I maintain a clean home, diet, lifestyle, and handle all of the children's needs. I have not let myself go, which I find it necessary to bring out, because many people think that that is a tolerable reason for someone to treat their spouse less than a person. I'm not sure if this classifies him as an alcoholic or not, but my…

    I have a friend who I don't see very often, but when I do I keep a close eye on her. Reason being - she's really attractive, she works out a lot, she has a nice body, breast implants. She's not bad to look at. She's also very sl*tty, for lack of a better word. She's cheated on all her ex-boyfriends, she's extremely vulgar, and she dresses very provocatively. I don't think my partner would cheat on me, but I often wonder how he would handle someone who's very aggressive and would make the first move - and this is the type of girl that would do something like that. I thought about that a lot…

I do not touch any of these women, not sing to them and of course do not lead any of them on as if I like them. And when the gig is over I pack up immediately and go home. All while wearing a wedding ring! She thinks that by me entertaining them (of course there are men in the crowd as well, and very well could be the spouse or boyfriend of some of these women) that I am having an emotional affair and getting off by their stroking my ego.

I asked him to do a love spell for me so that my lover can come back to me, but before the spell was done, I was a bit skeptical about his capacity to bring my man back to me.

The problem with this though, is that sometimes we ask some questions that are better off not being asked. Due to our insistence on knowing anything and everything, we…

    By:  Lisa Hayes “Oh!  Wow!  I just told you I forgive you and I instantly feel all better.”, said almost no one ever. Forgiveness is such a complicated subject.  There are enough books and platitudes out there on forgiveness to keep you busy reading and musing into eternity.  And yet, for all of the wise words written and spoken on the subject, forgiving  is often incredibly hard to do, if not seemingly impossible. I think most of us get the basics of forgiveness as adults.   They go something like this: Forgiving doesn’t mean you condone the behavior that caused harm.

  • A secure partner is a responsive partner

    Nora Femenia
    2 Sep 2014 | 3:58 pm
    How can we know if a person is a responsive and secure partner? When we imagine a life together with our chosen person, the main frame of that image has to give us a sense of security. This security  is an overall sense of confidence in a partner’s love and commitment to us. It includes also some expectations concerning the partner being  responsive to our needs. If we feel secure in this sense, we will feel valued and cared for by partners who are emotionally available and responsive to needs, when they happen. A secure partner is a good responsive person who is willing and capable…

This is the challenge that most couples face: when they fight the same battle again and again they build up resentment and anger, and end up solving nothing, because they don’t listen to each other’s hidden needs.  Sue says: “The couples who come to see me to repair their relationship often tell me that they really…

    You should know that my ego is huge. Really huge. Bigger than yours. It’s probably the biggest (and most handsome) ego out there. And that’s great, because I’m a writer. But it’s also terrible, because I’m a writer. Ego is something we’re taught to suppress. We’re trained from a young age that humility is a virtue to strive for, and ego will get us in trouble. Ego is the root of bad decisions, right? It blinds us to the truth by keeping our focus on our attributes and successes. The problem I have with this philosophy is that ego is inherently tied to self-confidence, and by…

  • Wives: Why Being a Little Selfish Will Lead to Better Orgasms

    Julie Sibert
    18 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    It seems a bit counterintuitive. This idea of being selfish in bed.  It even — dare I say — seems to fly in the face of that beloved Christian platitude of being self-sacrificial in marriage. But ladies I gotta tell you — if you aren’t experiencing and enjoying orgasm in your marriage bed, then your marriage bed (and your marriage) is likely suffering. Big time. (For you husbands reading this, pay close attention.  I have gems in here for you too.  And hopefully by the end of the post, you and your wife will both run with abandon toward her orgasmic pleasure).

  • Meeting Needs

    The Generous Husband
    15 Sep 2014 | 12:01 am
    Yesterday, I wrote about needs, and what qualifies as a need. Today let’s discuss meeting needs. Since I am writing to men here, I will focus on you meeting her needs. A few weeks ago, I tweeted the following, a couple of hours apart: Men: Your wife values something as much as you value sex. Find out what it is and give it to her often. #MarriageTip Wives: What if sex means to him what the thing you most want from him means to you? #SexQuestion I saw more women than men retweet the first, and more men than women retweet the second. No surprise there. What if there is something your…
  • Needs

    The Generous Husband
    14 Sep 2014 | 12:01 am
    I have been in many discussions about “needs”. I find people have a narrow definition of “needs” when they are looking for an excuse not to do something. A much wider definition is common when we want others to do something for us. Some want to define needs in terms of what is needed for survival – air, water, shelter, food.  While this is technically correct in a way, it is hardly useful for everyday life. This definition eliminates a good many things, including things we need to be mentally and physically healthy. We do not “need” interaction…
  • A Secret

    The Generous Husband
    13 Sep 2014 | 12:01 am
    Respected, secure, wives who are living out their calling are way more fun in bed. They have more fun, and they make it more fun for their husband. They are more likely to seek out sex, and are more likely to push the limits.  For women, sex is not a separate area of life. What happens in bed affects the rest of her life, and the rest of their life affects her sexuality. How they relate to and feel about their partner is particularly important. When a woman feels loved, respected, secure, and empowered, she is in a much better place to want and enjoy sex. A woman who feels good about her…

As a student, Brizendine realised fundamental gender difference meant we should look at male and female brains differently. She has made the study of the female brain a major part of her professional life and founded “The Women’s and Teen Girl’s Mood and Hormone Clinic” so what she has learned could be put to good use.

    Ask your wife to come up with a list of six things you do that annoy or irritate her. Come up with your own list as well. Then go over the lists when you are both calm and have time to deal with the issues. Doing this over dinner out is a great way to keep both of you from getting too loud or excited. Each of you shares your first irritation. You each repeat what you heard to ensure you understood. Offer any thoughts on what you might be able to do to eliminate annoying behaviours, or lessen their impact. Move on to the second irritation and repeat. Exchange lists when you are done. For the…

    There is all kinds of research about which couples are most likely to divorce: Couples that are too young. Couples that have known each other less than 2 years. Couples engaged for less than a year. Couples that come from divorced homes. Couples that live together before they get married.

    Tom and I have been married for 35 1/2 years, and we’re still building our marriage. It’s a process that should never stop. Just as I will never arrive to the place of perfection in this life, so too, my marriage will always be in need of growth and change. Not realizing this fact causes more marriages to crumble than anything else. Does that surprise you? Marriage is like a house. If left to itself it will deteriorate, but if careful attention is given to the needs that come up, the home will last a lifetime. How do we continue to build our marriage house? It’s simple…

It’s good for you. Even better, date night is an enjoyable thing to do together as a couple. Not that you’d know it, the way some people manage to avoid it. The biggest issue with having regular date nights is that humans crave the coziness of routine. Taking even a small step outside our little regular habits requires some effort.

Under the hashtags of #WhyIStayed, and #WhyILeft, women are telling their own experiences of domestic violence. They swirl around the basic question: Why is she staying with him? Why is she not leaving? and the answers tinted by personal stories, ethnicity, age and cultural differences,  flow endlessly into the same river of pain and redemption. First,…

    Are you dating an emotionally unavailable man? We have based a lot of posting on attachment theory and how it helps to explain what kind of connections we have in life. After reviewing secure, anxious and avoidant mindsets, we concluded that for the avoidant person, being emotionally unavailable is the shield that protects them from emotional pain such as betrayal, abandonment or any kind of insecurity. So, it is not rare to find charming men who play the role of available possible mate, in active search of love, only to make-believe others (and thus cheat also themselves) about their…

In short, being happy in a relationship is a moving target, and we can aspire only to a decent average of happy days, and a low percentage of crisis, wich are painful opportunities to learn something about ourselves. The basic tool that I use is the ever balancing of needs: how much do I care for my own needs and how much do I care for the other person’s needs? Is in this balance that…

Finally, if all women can do mothering, then it is not the same as being a mother. I believe mothering is more than a verb, it’s an energy, it’s an essence, it’s a way of being.Click To Tweet - Powered By CoSchedule Have you ever considered these questions before? Do you…

    When I was in my early twenties, I had an army of friends. Our common ground consisted of shared interests like clubbing, gossip and being overly dramatic about our romantic problems. I surrounded myself with people who were good-looking, stylish and popular, because subconsciously, that validated me. As I grew older and reached a different stage in my life, my interests started to change. I became a lot clearer of the type of human I wanted to be and the values that I stood for. Slowly, I grew apart from some of my old friends, got closer to others, and made room to welcome new, like-minded…
  • Mourning the Loss of Someone You Love

    Amy C
    28 Jul 2014 | 8:09 pm
    Today I am going to talk about pain. Not the typical type of pain I usually discuss associated with heartaches, rejection, or blows to the ego. No, today I’m going to talk about a different kind of pain, one that has nothing to do with you, or me. It’s the pain of losing someone you love. A type of pain where you watch the ripple effect of loss impact your family, and the feeling of helplessness as you’d give the world to take that darkness away. As you are reading this, I will be attending my grandmother’s funeral. I will watch my mother’s heart break. I will see my family weep. I…

  • Part 132: Post-Holiday Blues

    29 Aug 2014 | 5:46 pm
    All good things come to an end. One minute, you’re in a speedboat, cocktail cruising – sipping champagne on a remote lake in deepest New England, with no phone or internet reception to ruin the vibes; the next you’re squeezing spots on the Piccadilly line, sobbing at the Great British Bake Off and blocking twitter profiles your ex-boyfriend has set up in his baffling, ceaseless attempt to solicit communication. Or else you’re swiping left on Tinder, eating anchovies from the jar and wondering out-loud whether a Moon Cup would make your periods a more or less pleasant experience.

    Dahlinks. That picture, above, that’s MY passport and MY bikini. I’m off on holiday, where there will be cocktails, fresh water to bathe in and at least one good-looking man who doesn’t want to have sex with me. I can’t fucking wait. My holiday does, of course, mean that I shan’t be posting here for a couple of weeks, which I’m sorry about – but not that sorry. If you find yourself missing me you might like to browse my archives for posts from last summer, or else, listen to Dizzie Rascal’s Holiday, which is my tune of the moment. I’ll try…

    The first time I heard the words ‘pulled pork’, I was in LA. It was two or three years ago, it was a balmy, blue-skied day – as it always is in LA, although this particular day was a spring one, so as well as the sunshine there were pastel blossoms everywhere; blooming on tree branches, floating about in the warm breeze and dusting the pavement like confetti, except, thankfully, without a newly married couple anywhere in the vicinity, ruining the vibes. ‘I’m getting the pulled pork bun,’ my mate Tom said, looking up from his menu. We had gone for a late lunch –…

    I fucking hate cats, usually. Like men, they’re either ugly, good-looking but dumb to the point of irrelevance, or else transparently cunning. And, also like men, they do that thing where they treat you with indifference, until you withdraw your affections, and then they’re all over you like salt on chips. Aloof, mewing fleabags that jump out from nowhere, hissing, with arched backs and spite-contorted faces, or else cross your path on Friday the thirteenth and curse you with bad luck forevermore. And they make me sneeze. I was a big fan of that woman who, a few years back, was caught on…

    When I was a small girl, dressed in moss-green corduroy dungarees, with plaited blonde pigtails (which I had to braid all by myself because my mother was not capable of fashioning hair into anything other than a scrappy ponytail), I loved fairy tales. There was nothing I enjoyed more than having morality served up in narrative form – so that I could digest it whole – accompanied by slightly sinister illustrations, to hammer home the message, whatever it was, and usually it was don’t lie or cheat, work hard, never trust spinsters, (unless they have wings and a wand), remember that your…

  • The Consciousness of Men

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    15 Sep 2014 | 3:58 am
    When you turn on the television and see sports figures behaving poorly, you may wonder what is going on with our role models. What you may not realize is that they are just as human and part of a society that is more in touch with external stimuli than internal awareness. When we are children, we are either connected to an internal awareness that life contains many possibilities and that people are essentially good or we may adopt beliefs that life’s doors are closed and that we cannot trust anyone. Men along with women demonstrate fear in a multitude of ways when their beliefs create…

    Parenting with Soul is a book written about the power of beliefs and whether parents want to influence beliefs that create a life for a child based in love and joy rather than fear.  Examples of fear-based parenting are provided as the book reveals common beliefs that lead to worry and guilt in children that prevent them of realizing their full potential.  The book presents ways to develop upon the natural creativity and enthusiasm for life all children possess at birth.  Parenting with Soul asks parents and/or caregivers to assess their level of happiness as a determining factor in their…
  • Bullying and Fear

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    7 Jul 2014 | 5:19 am
    The bully is more frightened than his or her victim in many cases. He attempts to bring sense to his life by rationalizing that his victim is the cause of his actions and suppresses his thoughts of inadequacy and self-hate. In many schools, the bully had previously been on the other end of the stick where he was threatened and intimidated by other children/or adults. In either case, the perpetrator or victim remain equally fearful and filled with beliefs of unworthiness and inadequacy. Until schools and adults begin to realize that the act of bullying involves people that are centered in fear…

  • Mothers Are a Source Of Inspiration

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    11 May 2014 | 3:11 pm
    It’s a truism that mothers are the source of love in our lives, that they show us how we should relate to those people around us, and that in many ways, our relationship with our mother is the foundation of our emotional happiness. So how can mothers inspire their children? A child watches nothing so closely as his parents. Before a baby begins to walk and talk, he is absorbing the things that are going on around him. If a mother is loving and attentive, and above all consistent, then the baby feels safe. Imagine the trauma of not being sure that if you are hungry you will be fed, that…

    Maggie, a 28-year-old hair stylist, was recently hired on as the youngest stylist at a well-established, high-end hair salon in an upscale community. Maggie was always artistic growing up, so no one was surprised when she graduated from cosmetology school with speculative whispers she was going to make it far in her trade. Some surmised she’d one day be the stylist for movie stars or other renowned people. Maggie was not only precise in her trade, she knew how to add her own flair to every style, color and cut she performed. She even had a way of making cutting-edge styles look great on…

I’m not only 42, but I’m happier each year than the last and that counts for just about everything. When my mom turned 42 she had two daughters – me, a 15 year old, and my sister, a 5 year old. She was battling some of her worst depression and had been in and out of mental hospitals over the years. I was about a year from moving out of the house and about four years from arriving in New York City,…

Just be THERE.That's it, that’s the only tip I have for you. Just be THERE! I can't stress that enough. There is nothing worse than being a "friend" that only shows up in a friendship when it is convenient. You know, those friends who show up for the parties but never the funerals. Don’t be that person. Be there is the only tip because thats all it takes. If you are there in a friendship everything else will fall into place.

    11 Sep 2014 | 4:00 pm
    It has often been said that chivalry is dead, but new research by The University of Virginia suggests that couples who stick to old-fashioned values often have healthier and longer lasting relationships. It is common for couples to live in de facto relationships, and this can be perceived as a natural and healthy progression in a relationship. Interestingly, this study says that people with fewer sexual partners prior to marriage are far happier once they are married. It also highlights that couples who move in together only once they are married, or with the intention of marriage, have a…

    It is far easier to agree with someone than say no. Maybe it’s because we fear conflict, are scared of disappointing the other person or don’t feel we have the right to disagree. Often, a person will ask us what they believe to be a perfectly reasonable request. It may demand our time, or finances, our emotions and our energy- but we feel a certain obligation to say yes to them. What do you feel uncomfortable agreeing to? Perhaps a friend has asked you to babysit and you are already drained of time and energy with your own children? You might belong to a community group that has labelled…

Some of the information from this surveyed is captured in the infographic below. The results inform us that ‘the average person spends 24 months and 12 days thinking about a divorce before going ahead with it’. This suggests that a majority of couples are able to tolerate…

They can give you a natural rosy-cheeked glow, but in some cruel circumstances they can make you look like you’re the victim of a beauty salon disaster. Of course bearded chaps aren’t only to blame for leaving ladies with a visage that looks like it’s been exfoliated with a Brillo Pad, freshly-shaven fellas and those with a mere sprouting of facial hair can act as irritants, too.

That’s why we find it deeply surprising that Catwoman never pulls away mid-fight to sort her cossie out.  Although, being feline, she is a rather laid back kind of all-round-super-bad-bitch so perhaps she just puts up with it. Underwear-in-the-hungry-bum syndrome is something we’ve all suffered from once or twice in our lives, eh? That’s not a bad idea for a supervillain actually.

    Melodie
    4 Sep 2014 | 11:06 pm
    Venus enters Virgo on September 5, 2014 at 07:23 UT (3:23 am EDT). Venus is said to be debilitated in Virgo, as it is the sign opposite Venus’ natural Exaltation, Pisces. There are some disadvantages to having a planet in “fall” or “detriment,” due more to societal norms and expectations than anything else. As such, Venus is not particularly comfortable in Virgo, where the naturally romantic, self-indulgent, partnership-oriented archetype struggles to express itself through the analytical, perfectionistic, service-oriented Virgo filter. Even so, there are a lot…

    Venus enters Leo on August 12, 2014 at UT 07:23 UT (3:23 am EDT). Venus is the “love” planet, representing how you give and receive love and affection, as well as what you find aesthetically appealing. Venus also rules “money” as in earning potential and income, as in how you handle money, what you spend it on, and whether you’re attracting it to you or seeing it run through your fingers like water. By transit, Venus brings emphasis to these areas of your life — for better or worse, depending on the sign, house placement and relationship the transit forms…

Even the strongest, most independent and assertive Venus in Cancer people — both male and female — are apt to express themselves in traditionally feminine ways, such as nurturing, caring for and comforting others. When it comes to relationships, they tend to mother their partners as well. They may be passive or indirect in the early stages, but this is because they have a lot of fears — mostly…

Venus is the esoteric ruler of Gemini, as the catalyst through which the concept of “Love” first emerges — through connecting, interacting and most importantly communicating with others. Venus in Gemini people are charming and flirtatious. They’re playful, light-hearted and charismatic with a natural appreciation for the give-and-take that goes hand-in-hand in any relationship. They’re insatiably curious, wanting to know everything there is to know about the people they’re interested in, and as…

Neither one of us was willing to say sorry, it made things worse, and showed how selfish we were! You probably have experienced it too.  In marriage, you will have a fight or an argument with your spouse. Yes, you will sometimes be wrong, accept it! You might feel awful about it, and wonder if you should say sorry; well, you have to! You don’t have to be the one in the wrong to apologize. Sometimes…

    Everybody who is dealing with a Twin Flame connection wants to know how you can not only survive, but make it through where you find peace and happiness. The most important thing I want you to know is: IT CAN BE DONE. This video covers some of the ‘darker’ elements of energy and NOT so divine intervention sometimes experienced while working through a genuine OR non genuine Twin Flame Union. These may include the shadow aspect, the opposite polarities,(light and dark) entities, past life attachments, negative thought forms, and false twins. Love & LightLoLa…

Although I have learned to use mantras and meditation during my Twin Flame journey to calm my mind and expand my awareness, this is important for everyone – no matter what journey you are on in life. We all have issues, and we always will. For some just the commute to work alone – or even work itself is enough to drive you insane. For others it may be financial woes,…

It is a song about self-love, opportunity, inspiration, and not conforming to everyone else’s ideals of who you should be or how you need to live your life. Being part of a twin flame relationship has not only taught me more about myself then I ever wanted to know, it has inspired me to look at everyone and everything else with a different lens. We tend to get tunnel vision – like a horse with blinders on. Sometimes we do it because we were taught that way, and sometimes…

    YOU. We sometimes get to a point in life, when we have set a ton of goals, planned our dream vacation, taken care of our children, and fallen in love – where we realize something is missing. While focusing on all of the external things we want and love, we have forgotten the one thing where it all begins – to LOVE OURSELVES first. I got to this point – and unfortunately I don’t have any excuse. Some of us have grown up in families that don’t show love. Some have been shown love in unhealthy ways, and have carried that on throughout life. Some of us are victims of abuse. I grew up in…

    I’ve decided to do this post just because it’s been on my mind. I’ve read so many “relationship help” posts on other websites, that I just realized that the answer to most of these “helps” is really easy; compromise. Let me explain what I mean. You’re dealing with a completely different person that’s not you. That person is a stranger. You have no idea what that person is thinking, and you don’t know what makes them tick (unless they tell you). Without verbal communication, it’s hard to maintain a good relationship. But because…

Now that I have, I’m ready to update you on our next “step”, also known as, the social experiment.  For the last week of August, my boyfriend and I decided to “live” together. A better word for that would be cohabitate. We made our plans briefly, as we didn’t want expectations and guidelines to get in the way of spending a week together. Going out with him for approximately 11 months, this would be the most I saw of him in a chunk of time. I was excited…

    When you start a relationship with someone, you usually think about how much that person makes you happy, and how you want to make them happy too. And you start thinking about his family and his close friends, the people that mean most to him/her, and hoping that you’d get along with them. But then there’s the “x-factor” that comes along: the roommate.  My boyfriend’s roommate is probably also his closest friend. They have been living together for about 2 years, and they both like similar things. When I first met him, he was polite, and very nice, also giving…

It’s easy to just pretend that nothing is wrong and put a smile on your face, while deep down, you’re worried. Although I may sound like a drama queen, I know exactly why I turned out this way and why I’m so anxious when it comes to my relationship.  This goes back to when I was in my previous relationship. Thinking about it now, it probably wasn’t the healthiest of relationships. But then again, all girls go through that kind of relationship at least once (unless…

    With all the fights and cuddling that relationships go through, there really isn’t much time to talk about the silence that comes up between the two individuals. Since you two are complete strangers, you have no idea what the other person is thinking, and you it may lead to silence. I, for one, know that I talk a lot. I mean, I’m a girl. I naturally just talk. I am also one of those people who create stories out of the blue and pretend that they are happening (no, I’m not crazy). Most of the time, my boyfriend enjoys my stories and plays along. Other times, we just kind of…
