I’m frequently asked about how to go about dating without stressing out too much or saying the wrong thing. I know first dates are not the easiest, but the process doesn’t have to be horrifying either.
We’ve all been there – that moment when someone does or says something way out of line with our expectations and/or standards. When it happens it’s surprising, somewhat shocking and can leave us so aghast we hardly know what to say.
Romantic love is magical - an almost indescribably delicious feeling, yet much, much more! Love is a behavior. It’s the power behind, in front of and all around the relationship. Love is what creates that deepest, most intimate place of refuge.
Most women do this well, myself included. We berate ourselves for putting up with love relationship partners when their behavior towards us is simply unacceptable. Why do we do this at all, let alone for the years and even decades we’ve tolerated the intolerable.
Are you tired of trying to be perfect? I know I am. We are human and as spiritual guru and all-around amazing woman, Iyanla Vanzant says, we are just “messy’ and sometimes “crazy as hell.” No one is perfect.
There was a time when I was just stuck – stuck in a pattern of life that wasn’t working out very well. Because it was familiar and I didn’t know what else to do I just carried on wishing and hoping things would change for the better.
Are you setting any new intentions for your life in 2019? How about your love life? If you are still single and desire to be part of a loving couple, then I hope you take a few minutes to consider just what you might do differently this year.
