I idealized my first relationship for three years.
I know, that’s a long time!
I’ve learned that my mind and my heart needed something/someone to connect to. I didn’t know how to break out of this vicious cycle for many years.
If you connect more to yourself and to the things/people/activities you love you’ll see that you won’t idealize your ex-partner ever again.
A painful breakup is the greatest chance you’ll get to change your life for the better. If you want that change, it means that you have to let go.
Letting go is one of the hardest things…
Meghan Laslocky, author of The Little Book of Heartbreak: Love Gone Wrong Through the Ages, states:
“When you’re in love, it’s not as if you’re an addict. You are an addict.”
Studies show that experiencing a break-up makes you go through something similar to a cocaine withdrawal. That means you can suffer from withdrawal symptoms like eating without control, being unable to sleep, or shaking anxiously.
Feeling like s**t, physically and emotionally, after a break-up is completely normal.
All of us have experienced heartbreak. Our future seems wrecked, and all we want is to get back together with our exes…
Do you ever feel like losing weight is unattainable for you?
If you think you’ll never reach your dream weight, it might be because you’re focusing on the wrong advice.
Endless diet advice ruins our health and steals our time. We experience the well-known yo-yo effect and feel even worse after dieting.
If you are tired of diets and impeding thoughts about your body, the approach of intuitive eating might help you gain permanent results.
Intuitive Eating is not a diet; it’s a sustainable way to gain healthy eating habits.
The way back to our intuition can be hard work…
Anxiety appears when your body and mind are under stress.
You fear outcomes in the future. Consequently, you react with nervousness. Your body transpires or shakes. Your heart rate increases and you breathe shallowly.
Being anxious is normal. But if you feel like your anxiety lowers your quality of life and influences you negatively, please search for a therapist to help you heal from a potential anxiety disorder.
If you are currently under stress and want to discover yoga exercises to ease your nervousness, I recommend practicing forward bends.
Forward bends can benefit you on the following two levels:
You love sex, but you never had an orgasm through penetration?
If you ever feel frustrated because you cannot climax, it’s likely because you haven’t found the right techniques yet.
Also, it’s not only about technique. To have an orgasm, there may be individual requirements you need.
When I don’t feel comfortable with a man, I cannot climax. I don’t necessarily need to know the man for many years, but there has to be an emotional connection. If I feel like the man doesn’t care about my pleasure, I cannot come.
Before discovering techniques, ask yourself what you need to…
Have you ever had a relationship in which you felt listened to but not heard?
You tell your partner something important, but all you get is a standard answer like “you’ll be fine” or “don’t worry about it.”
In my childhood, my father suffered from alcohol addiction. When I was brave enough to express my concerns about something, he started yelling at me. He took everything I said personally and blamed me for being over-sensitive. “Stop crying” was something I often heard when I was a child.
During the years, I realized that there’s nothing wrong with opening up. Actually…
When I was younger, I thought being in love was enough for a relationship to work out.
After thirteen years of dating and a 5-year relationship, I realized love sometimes isn’t enough. Last year I broke up with my partner, even though I still had feelings for him.
I needed to save myself from more pain.
Toxic behavior, childhood traumas, gaslighting, cheating…There are multiple reasons why relationships end.
But what about the relationships that do work out greatly?
Healthy relationships aren’t only built on fidelity, honesty, and common interests. They go deeper than that. Happy relationships share a unique connection.
Our love lives as adults are strongly characterized by the relationship we had with our parents when we were young.
I grew up in an environment influenced by my overly anxious father and a mother who tried to balance out all the troubles that ran in our family. Our common anxiety increased when my sister was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 14.
At the beginning of her illness, her critical condition, the endless phone calls between doctors and my parents, and the constant fear of losing her determined our lives.
It took me many years and tons of self-reflection…
I knew my relationship with my ex was over when I stopped telling him how I felt.
It felt wrong to address my concerns as I knew our relationship was too fragile to endure more negative emotions.
So I kept on smiling. I told him that I was still okay with our open relationship. We continued with our life as nothing had happened.
I stopped being vulnerable in front of him. I acted like a person without negative emotions as I didn’t want him to think I was clingy. …
One year ago, I was going through one of the most challenging times in my life. I was convinced my good years were over, and that I would never be happy again.
Still, somewhere inside of me, I hoped everything would change for the better in my future. So I started going to psychotherapy, taking medication, and creating a life I truly wanted to live.
After 12 months of working on myself and my mental health, I finally found a method that helped me reclaim my inner strength and happiness.
