One Way Or The Other: Cleaning Out The Dark Spaces Of Your Relationships

There are dust bunnies. So many. They are under the bed and in me, scurrying across the wooden floors of my home and my heart. They are moving much too fast through the empty, bumping into toys and crayons and dried up play-doh, then coming to a weary stop.

Healing With Hurt Feelings

hurt feelings

Hurt Feelings. They're like noses. We all have them. They come in all shapes and sizes. They can come suddenly like a cloud and bring the rain or build up slowly and then consume us like a tornado. They can be so powerful that they can make us lose complete perspective of our reality. You overhear your colleagues are having a get together at the end of the day, but you haven't been invited. You feel excluded. Hurt feelings show up. You find out that someone you thought was a good friend has been talking about you behind your back. You feel betrayed. Hurt feelings show up. You're having dinner with your girlfriend, and she says she wants more space and wants to date other men. Clunk. Couldn't she at least have waited 'til after dessert? You leave dinner feeling hurt and abandoned.

Does My Happiness Disturb You? How To Deal With Joy Killers.

Life After Tampons

The other morning was the funnest ever coffee shop morning! We joyfully welcomed home a friend who had been gone for some weeks. She had us in stitches with tales of her travels. Later, a different friend shared that as she was leaving the shop another woman stopped her and said, “I’m glad you’re leaving.”

I guess we were too happy.

How To Keep Your Heart Open When You Lose A Pet - Part 2

Ariel, a 2 pound fluffy white bichon frise tied in a pink bow, was my 21st birthday present from my parents. I giggled with her when she humped the stuffed pig my best friend had given me in college (who knew spayed female dogs still have such libido?)  She decided that pig was her bitch, and I begrudgingly relinquished it to her.

Simple Steps To Bring Ease Into Your Relationships

Do you ever find yourself saying or thinking “I want to be understood. I don’t want to be judged, I want to be seen for who I am”?

You’ve grown, changed your mindset, and have embarked on a journey of the mind and body that’s all your own, right? But still your friends, family or co-workers just don’t get it - or you.

When We Make People “Special:” A Lesson From A Course In Miracles

As part of my personal Prescription for living a wholly healthy, balanced life, I have been studying A Course In Miracles (ACIM). I find that this Course helps me bolster both my spirituality and my relationships, and I know from the research I’m doing on my next book that spiritual connection and healthy relationships are both essential to a healthy body and healthy life.

How Do You Know When It’s Time To Leave The One You Love?

She’s family, so there’s blood tying you together. But every time she calls, you wind up feeling gutted.

You love him, but you spend more time crying over the words you write in your journal than you spend laughing (and you know from past experience that the quality of your relationships with guys is inversely proportional to how much time you spend writing in your journal).

You’ve known each other for years. You once called her your best friend. But you realize you continually have expectations of her she fails to meet.
