This is Part one of a two part series.  Click here for part 2

Verbal attacks, insults, disrespect, rotten experiences, etc... are members of a "negative energy family" designed to damage your sense of self-worth.  Sometimes, you are caught off-guard and other times you know they're coming.  Nevertheless, the impact is the same.  Another "chink in your armor" has found a home in your psyche!

Your feelings are hurt and you feel dejected.   Remember this saying "you can't control what happens but you can control what you do about it."  

So, what do you do???

Men Are Simply Complicated !!!

Aug 23, 2014 10:53:02 PM / by Linda B James posted in RELATIONSHIPS - Love and Marriage, Personal Growth, RELATIONSHIPS - Resolving Disputes, RELATIONSHIPS - Love and Intimacy

Ladies, how would you describe the men in your life?
  • Simple?
  • Complicated?
  • Simply complicated?

The dictionary defines the word simple as - "easy to understand and not complex.'

Many believe that men are simple.  Give them sports, sex, food, a lot of liquor and/or a good cigar and they are happy.  This is a MYTH!  

Contrary to popular belief, men are strangely complex. Women are stumped trying to understand them!

In the previous blog, I reviewed the reasons why men cheat.  Since I am an "equal opportunity blogger", I would be remissed if I did not write about women cheating.  There are a variety of emotional, psychological and physical reasons why the so called "weaker sex" deceives and strays from their mate.  I have listed a handful of reasons for the inquiring mind.

“Couples are either divided fighting each other
or united fighting someone or something else.”  
-- LBJ

 After 23 years of marriage, resolving countless disagreements, researching partnerships and interviewing numerous guests on the topic of relationships, I consider myself a relationship expert.

One thing I have learned over the years is that there is no “one size fits all” approach to fighting on the relationship battlefield.  Anyone who has been in a long-term relationship can appreciate that fact.  Truthfully, discord is an inevitable and tricky distraction in any union.  Why do you argue in the first place?  Your personality, motives and fighting style determine why and how you spar.

“When you focus on the problem, you miss the rainbows of life” -- LBJ

Everyone has problems. Some troubles are self imposed and others are life's unexpected, crazy surprises. Generally speaking, problems are subjective.  You see life through your prism.  Whether it is cloudy or clear it is still your prism.  Nevertheless, what you see is what you get.  What you perceive to be real and problematic is what matters.  Here's the problem with problems: they catch you off guard and they lurk around when you are at your lowest low.  But, here's some good news: most problems are short lived and only a few last a lifetime.  They still have the potential to wreak havoc on your life and psyche.  One common denominator of problems is stress.  This is the hidden anchor that causes you to drown in your sorrows.  I learned over the years that all problems breed some form of stress.

Look around you…

Not everyone you think is in your corner is cheering for you.

You will meet a handful of devoted friends and many fake friends in your lifetime.

Hopefully, the number of true friends outweighs the number of bad friends.

To your dismay, your friend might actually be your “frenemy.” Frenemies are jealous backstabbing saboteurs.  They want something you have such as: a relationship or a career.  They don’t want you to have something they desire.  Their attitude is “if I can’t have it, neither can you!”

It is disheartening when someone you admire and thinks is a good friend turns on you.  Perhaps they were never a friend after all.
