Honesty and Vulnerability the Key to Intimacy

One of the main factors of having and keeping a good relationship is being able to trust, and have good communication. In order for others to trust us, we have to be able to become vulnerable, and show our vulnerability. Honesty and vulnerability go hand in hand. You cannot be totally, and genuinely truthful with another, without opening up fully to them.[...]

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

We are conceived through a connection, of the deepest kind, between a man and a woman, and from the moment that we are conceived, we are connected to our Mother in her womb. When that physical connection we began with is separated at birth, we spend our lives desiring to be connected again. How we go about, and how well we succeed, at re-creating that connection…becomes the story of our lives.[...]

"Puppet On A String" Who Is Controlling Your Strings?

I was raised in a family of givers, and caretakers, and the old fashion way, where the women wait on the men, and take care of the home, but in the world of relationships, that tenancy and upbringing, if taken too far, can get me into a whole lot of trouble with men, and ultimately be the downfall of any relationship.

I was reading an article by Zara Stevens, and it hit on something that has been on my mind a lot these past few years. "You no longer make me happy anymore." I heard this statement a lot at the end of my last relationship; that had started out with the most profound happiness that I could ever imagine.

TGIF Love American Style - #5

I know...I know. I haven't even been able to keep up with my weekly favorites, any better than I have at getting over my writers block. Instead of around thirty unfinished articles, I now have around forty. Hang in there with me everyone.

But...here is this weeks.

Ideal Relationships, wrote “When Someone You Love Is Hurting and You Don’t Know What to Say” - I know my gut reaction is to want to help, fix it for them, but as that what we always need when we are hurting?

It’s Never Too Late For Love, on the question that pops up everywhere “Why He Didn’t Call” . She addresses the question I always ask myself when I read about this question, and that is; “why are you so obsessed with this question, or the answer”?

There is an article that every women should read especially if you have ever been abused in some way, over at The Heartless Bitches - Bitchitorial, “Living With the Dominator

Hooking Up Smart wrote an excellent article, “How To Stimulate Demand In a Relationship Recession” - a must read!

Lynne Forrest wrote, “The Three Faces of Victim” - I personally am a classic rescuer, and one of the reasons I believe I stayed in my abusive marriage for so long. I learned a lot about myself here.

Enjoy the exploration.
