When we are triggered in relationships we tend to blame the other person for the strong emotions we are feeling. Yes, we are reacting to something that was said or done and it feels like the other person was the cause of this. What is actually being activated in our body is the adaptation to […]Read More >>
Conditioned from childhood to repress parts of ourselves for nourishment. Food, care, attention – we find it quite normal to continue repressing our true nature for “nourishment” as grownups. When we are disconnected from our power center, intuitive knowing and self-esteem, we are not aware that we can respond to our own needs. Whether in […]Read More >>
When we teach our children that someone else is more important, stands above them hierarchically, or that other people’s needs, desires, or wishes take precedence over their own, we set them up for a lifetime of helplessness, unworthiness, and inadequacy. Children who are raised to give their power away to some displaced authority figure learn […]Read More >>
Family life is not a perpetual state of bliss. But it is difficult to normalize the complexity. I still feel “wrong” when it’s not perfect sometimes. Like I did not do enough. Although I also know that I couldn’t possibly do any more.Read More >>

After more than 30 years of life together—I am learning to love my husband.
I want to learn to love in such a way that the evolution in the structure of our relationship or any changes that each of us may still undergo will not kill the love.
Committed to filling my own needs, I no longer look for relationships to complete me.
I am learning to love people beyond what I can get from them, beyond my needs for safety, stability, or fear of the unknown.
