While stuck in traffic last Sunday, my friends and I realised that anger is nothing more than being stuck perpetually in our fight response. Why do some things always get the better of us?
Can I see others for who they truly are, or for who I want them to be?
Too often we equate dependency with love.
There’s a lot of lists with good virtues, tricks that get you far in life or psychological growth secrets. However, there is nothing as simple and life-changing as this.
It’s a primal itch pushing us away from others: the reluctance of being relied upon.
At the start, both parties are looking for compatibility. But are you seeing the other person really for who they are, or who you want them to be?
“I give so much love to everyone” said someone on this Abraham Hicks talk, “yet receive so little back. How do I stop myself from being resentful?”
The lines between empathy and codependency are blurred for many of us. Are you feeling more than you have to, and can you assert yourself?
Children of dysfunctional families learn to “lawyer up” for every single conversation. Why is this ultimately backfiring on our happiness?
I spend a long time believing that pity was love.
