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.
Romantic relationships are important for our happiness and well-being. Yet with more than 40 percent of new marriages ending in divorce, it’s clear that relationships aren’t always easy.1 Fortunately, there are steps you can take to keep your romantic partnership in good working order.
Communication is a key piece of healthy relationships. Healthy couples make time to check in with one another on a regular basis.

I’ve not written a blog post since last year. While organizing my business and figuring out how to serve you well, I’ve decided to post the article that you seemed to like most. I hope you enjoy it as much as you did last year. 🙂
Remember the Kiss Test? If not let me refresh your memory. A relationship coach who helps men learn how to date women came up with this.
I wanted to eat the gingerbread men. But I read the article. It’s necessary. Christmas is SUNDAY!

It’s that time of year again. The fresh scent of an evergreen fills the house. Strains of “Silent Night” and “Jingle Bells” permeate the airwaves.
To happily splash through the Christmas holiday without a care in the world, takes some serious planning. It makes sense to have a strategy to implement during this heightened emotional time of year. If you want to be prepared for the family gatherings, monitoring your unproductive habits of complaining is a great place to start. Begin now – if you’re one who complains.
Will you be in town or are you traveling for Thanksgiving? I’m not sure if you’ll even have time to read this post. Yet I’m writing it anyway because I want to remind you that you have so much to be grateful for. No matter your current circumstance. I’m sure it can be easy to remember your painful past, but is that really what you want to focus on?
