How The Science Of Broken Heart Syndrome Can Help You Survive Your Worst Breakup

Posted by on Jan 13, 2018 in Grief and Loss, love | 0 comments

5 steps to rule your emotions — rather than let your emotions rule you. In doing my research for this article, I found several articles discussing how there really is a thing called “Broken Heart Syndrome” that can be identified in scans of the heart. People complaining of a ‘broken heart’ experience symptoms similar to a heart attack, complete with the pain and distress. While they are not the associated arterial blockages normally associated with heart attack, the heart becomes misshapen causing interference with its optimal functioning. Cortisol levels increase while...

Three Steps for Surviving an Affair

It’s common for people to ask me whether or not their relationship can survive an affair, and my answer is yes. It is entirely possible with these three steps. Step One: Prioritize Your Relationship The first step is a mutual agreement that the relationship is important enough to attempt to heal from the trauma. Consequently, both partners must recognize the role they each played in the breakdown of their relationship. Dr. Harville Hendrix says that in all his work with couples, he has never encountered an affair where only one partner was guilty. He says that, if you look below the...

Relationships: Whose Problem is It?

by Kim Olver In relationships, it is not uncommon for couples to have difficulties—your partner may do things that drive you crazy. In my work with couples, I often hear complaints about men leaving their dirty clothes right next to the hamper. I have seen women on the verge of divorce or a mental breakdown over this seemingly simple and innocent issue. Something men complain about is their wife’s inability to put gas in her car; it drives them wild! Though it seems like another simple issue, it has also placed a huge strain on many relationships. When I ask the question, “Whose problem...

Relationship ABCs

When you are in a relationship you value, it is important to subscribe to the ABCs of Relationships. Mind your P & Qs, and everything else from A to Z. A = Accepting When in a relationship, it is important to accept your partner as he or she is, instead of always trying to change him or her. If you want to embark on a self-improvement plan, start with yourself. When you don’t like something about your partner, it comes across as criticism.

Problem with Relationships

When couples decide they want therapy, they often come seeking help for financial, sexual, time management, or parenting issues. They have trouble agreeing on what to save and what to spend; even after finding common ground, couples can find conflict in discussing how to spend and save. Having different expectations for their sex life can lead to disagreements, inattention, and downright frustration that cause challenges in the relationship. Couples argue about how to spend their free time and with whom. Do they spend time together, apart, or a mix of the two? Do they visit her family or his?...

Guilting wife into sex is a bad idea

Guilting wife into sex is a bad idea

This article is about how to help women feel sexual minus the guilty control. As a Choice Theory expert, I know that trying to guilt your wife into having sex will be a lose/lose/lose proposition. You will not have the enthusiastic sex partner you really crave; she will not be feeling amorous toward the person who coerced her; and your relationship will grow weaker because of it. Whenever one partner tries to get the other partner to do something he or she doesn’t want to do either through complaints, threats or guilt, the result is akin to pounding a sledgehammer against a concrete...
