How Open Are You To Receiving His/Her Love?

How Open Are You To Receiving His/Her Love?

Many of you reading my articles may have noticed that I rarely talk about my personal or private life. One, I'm a sort of a introvert-extrovert (if there is such a thing), and two, I try as much as possible not to let "me" get in the way of my trying to help others. But once in a while, after hearing about the personal struggles of my clients [...]

Masculine Faces Aren’t What They Appear To Be

Masculine Faces Aren’t What They Appear To Be

What comes to mind when you picture a man with a broad face, a square jaw, and a stoical demeanour ? Aggressive, not so-cuddly, cold, dishonest, uncooperative... Not so fast says new study, published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science (June 2012). Men with these wide, masculine faces aren't [...]

Why You Should Forgive Already

Why You Should Forgive Already

Forgiveness has been on my mind lately. No, I am not hurting. And I have forgiven all I need to forgive, and hopefully have been forgiven for all the wrongs I've done to others. Hearing about and seeing so many relationships destroyed by emotional hurt and so many good and loving people kept apart by the struggle to forgive the other, may be the [...]

Help! My Ex Wants Me Back But I’m Scared

Why Do Men Emotionally Pull Away?

Why Do Men Emotionally Pull Away?

Question: Yangki, my situation is similar to Jillian's. My ex also initiates contact but avoids emotionally difficult conversations. It hurts that he shuts me out of his life. He was never one for emotional conversations. Whenever I tried to talk to him about things that were important to me, he’d say he is going through a lot at work and [...]

It’s NOT Needy and Clingy If…

It’s NOT Needy and Clingy If…

Not many of us know we are needy and clingy, let alone can accept that we are. If anyone even remotely suggests that we are that way, we get defensive and accuse the other person of wrongly profiling us. If your desire to get closer only makes the other person want distance, chances are you are needy and clingy. You may not be needy all the [...]

The next time someone complains that you are "nice", tilt your head sideways, and with raised eyebrows and a slight shoulder shrug tell them, "It's in my genes.

Does Someone Using “No Contact” Love You?

Does Someone Using “No Contact” Love You?

Anna Wrote: I am a little confused about one part in your article. In one of the paragraphs you say that people who use 'no contact' are not using it because they love you...

Continued from - Pt. 1 2. Personal Responsibility It's a human tendency to want to explain, defend oneself and set the record straight. We somehow believe that by "clarifying" things, we can get the other person to see things our way, understand why we did what we did, and hopefully want to give the relationship another chance.
