What Are Boundaries and Why You Need Them

One of the most misunderstood and important tools to develop healthy relationships is your ability to set boundaries. Brene Brown famously said: “The most generous people are the most boundaried.” She’s right because setting boundaries helps you to take more responsibility for your life and therefore feel more in control which increases your confidence, energy and enthusiasm for life. Boundaries help you to become more open and trusting with yourself and others, which in turn improves the q...

Can You Be Too Trusting?

To trust someone you love is important. Otherwise, you’ll be forever doubting that person, creating serious dissension in the relationship. But can you be too trusting? Absolutely! If you’re a scrupulously honest person, you might assume everyone else is too, especially if it’s your very own spouse. Lara was hurting — hurting so badly there were moments when she seriously considered taking her own life. “My pain is unbearable. I trusted my husband totally. Then I found out that he’d been ch...

7 Relationship Benefits of Good Communication

Are you listening? Relationships can be tough. Building a “context” of what your mate is really saying significantly increases emotional intimacy and closeness between the two of you. And, equally important, not only does building context help you learn how to be a better listener, but it also significantly lessens the disagreements couples have and improves your communication skills. We don’t always exactly mean what we say in our conversation. We open our mouth and some sentences come out. ...

The average lifespan of a friendship? 10 years. Here’s why.

Some friendships last a lifetime, but most have a lifespan. In the U.S., best friends tend to last for 10 years on average, says Nicholas Christakis.In friendships, one person may begin to defect or "free ride", which causes the other person to choose between cooperation or defection. People tend to choose the latter so they won't be taken advantage of.A certain amount of social fluidity, taking a breather from a friendship, can actually make a friendship last longer. ...

Spouse’s Disturbing Behavior

Been married about 10mth. We’ve known each other 10 years, mostly not together as he is from overseas. He moved to the US and we got married recently.

Did I Get Myself into Another Unhealthy Relationship?

From the U.S.: I divorced several years ago after 18 years in an abusive marriage.  I have been dating an old friend from college for over 1 year.  This man is very gentle and kind, and does a lot of nice things for me.  He spends most of his free time with me when possible, but he lives an hour away.  He always makes the drive to see me, and comes 2-3 times a week to do things or hang out with me. However, he is very stubborn and as the relationship has progressed, I have found him to be unwave...

Why Jealousy Can Be Good

Envy is one of the seven deadly sins. “Never underestimate the power of jealousy and the power of envy to destroy,” Oliver Stone said. I’m going to do just that. I’m going to postulate that envy also has the power to create and to motivate, that it is, in fact, GOOD. This topic is a natural for me since I spend so much time counting other people’s blessings. I salivate over my friend’s number-one New York Time’s bestseller; my colleague’s trip to Tibet; my brother-in-law’s cake job; my friend’s ...

6 Ways to Overcome and Benefit from Embarrassment

Henri Rousseau once wrote, “It’s not the criminal things which are hardest to confess, but the ridiculous and shameful.” We’ve all been there, strutting down the path of humiliation with our tail in between our legs. As the queen of embarrassment, I now know what to do and what not to do while donning a dunce cap. I have learned that my idiotic acts aren’t as important as the way in which I rebound. If I can maneuver gracefully back to two feet and walk forward with confidence, my flaws have a w...
