Colette walked into Tin Roof restaurant in Manhattan Beach. She liked the ambiance and the energy of the people.
“This place feels good to me” she said to her best friends Lauren and Pamela.
“I’m glad we made this decision.”
As they walked into the restaurant there was a bar to the left, many people were seated there for the wine tasting event.
The feeling of limbo is a destructive phenomenon – an unsettling feeling – like being in bumper-to-bumper traffic. You’d probably rather just stay home and not even face the lingering and weary sound of breaks and horns.
Love, by definition, is the intense feeling of deep affection. However, it’s not just a feeling, it’s an action(verb). This week the Coaching Kiva is going to take you on a short walk on the beach, and talk about the myth of love, which causes many relationships to become dysfunctional. Love will make you happier than you’ve ever been, but if not approached with the understanding of reciprocity, Love can cause unpleasant, unforeseen, challenges.
Somewhere in the middle of your long talks, silly jokes, and little fights, you fell in love with your significant other. To maintain this healthy relationship, you need to remember to never go to bed angry or upset. Some couples may find it easier then others, but the key is to not ignore the problem, and address it in a timely manner.
Society and social media tell us that when we lose our intimacy and connection with our significant other it’s time to move on; I’m here to tell you that this is wrong and it’s time to reconnect with your partner. A relationship is a product of intimacy (not just sex), trust, and ALOT of work.
Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs (love and belonging) teaches that neglect, past relationship problems, and ostracism can affect individuals’ abilities to form and maintain relationships.
Are you waking up in the morning wishing there was more? You have the car, the perfect marriage, and even that great job, but something is missing. As human beings, we crave to have a sense of belongingness, but how we achieve it varies per individual. There have been various studies conducted on how people achieve fulfillment in our lives. For many people they choose a religion, others money, and some even future aspirations; though there are three commonalities within these.
Self-perception of oneself plays a major part in your self-worth. For the past 8 years, I have struggled with short-term memory loss from a traumatic brain injury from my childhood. This became my crutch of feeling not worthy or “good enough” to pursue my own personal goals and ambitions.
I was scared to pursue my ideal career or to go to school and get a degree; in my eyes, my life was over.
