How often have you felt out of sorts, not yourself and just unable to truly connect with your woman?
Do you argue with her about shit that just keeps piling up? Does it feel like the "Make up" moments are just desperate truces for a bit of peace before the next round?
For most men in this situation I am going to blow your hair back (if you still have it) about a reality you might be blind to seeing but you feel its truth.
I too fell into behaviour patterns in relationships that were bull-headed, frustrating and childish. Never figuring out the answers she was looking for or being able to solve the seemingly dastardly riddle that women seem to be for so many men.
In truth, the reason you feel disconnected, unable to get away from the constant naggin...
The one where they have success, status and accomplishment, and then there's the one where they are literally bankrupt in every other area of their lives.
I have met so many successful men that have everything anyone could possibly want.
They have the homes, the cars, the vacations and the parties that prove that the good life is a reality for so many.
Yet behind the smiles, the clinking of the glasses and the fat bank account lies the truth.
Many are about to go through a divorce, they are having affairs, they don't see their kids, or their kid(s) are in trouble. They have very few "real" friends and they live in a facade that's hard to maintain.
Alcohol, drugs, pharmaceuticals and sex are the addictions and distractions many are dealing with behind the m...
We had an interesting discussion at The Remarkable Man Project Calgary last night.
It was about the idea of finding balance in a man's life. Balance, for most people sounds like a fantastic place to be.
Most people have this sunshine and skittles idea of what a life in balance is all about.
In truth balance is not where you want to be. Have you ever seen a scale perfectly balanced? It does not move!
Balance has no movement, no growth, no challenges to improve.
At best, balance might be a temporary state to achieve, but you'll soon find boredom, complacency and stagnation.
Balance in your relationship soon becomes a score card. If I do this for her, therefore I should get this in return. Ah balance is maintained. As soon as the balance is tipped toward one partner's efforts, the truth...
How often have you allowed your setbacks to paralyze you from moving forward?
How many times have you felt powerless from the crap life tends to throw at you?
I was tested over the last week with a very severe leg injury. I had damaged my ligaments, tendons and muscles in the inner hip and pelvis reason so badly that I was mobilized with a kind of pain that felt like being electrocuted with every breathe I took and every move I made!
I couldn't sleep for 5 days as no position would settle it down or give me comfort.
I couldn't do any amount of work as focus and concentration was impossible. Getting out to meet clients just wasn't going to happen.
I got all up in my stuff about the "What ifs" as I waited to get the x-rays and treatment.
So this situation forced me to explore the areas of my...
Why do your romantic relationships always tend to end up the same way?
Why do you manifest partners that treat you the way they do?
A lot of our relational wounds stem from our parents and family dynamic as we grew up. Yes, those unconscious programs are often the root of why your relationships today end up the way they do.
One of the fastest ways to end the cycle is to heal the relationship with your parents and/or siblings. Whoa! (record scratch)Does the thought of that brings up all kinds of resistance?...If it does...That's good!!
On the other side of your fear is your freedom.
Here's the rub. Your familial relationships are actually easier to fix than you think. The reason is because unlike romantic relationships the foundation is unconditional love. We don't have a sexual energy agenda at...
I had an interesting dilemma put forth to me by a client that has been in a new relationship for about two months.
She is all he's ever wanted: she's cute, she's fun, she's got quirky sense of humour and she's got a penchant for the unpredictable. One of those things just happens to be kissing passionately any time, any where. She loves PDA - public displays of affection.
For most guys this sounds like a great scenario to be in. I mean, Damn! That's kinda hot!
But this is not his reality nor his brand of PDA because he is more reserved. He loves the passion between them but as long as it is at home or somewhere private.
He is having a hard time with telling her that it's not appropriate at restaurants, gatherings with friends or out in public where people could be offended.
