    What if a Snarky Remark is a Red Flag?

    What if a Snarky Remark is a Red Flag?

    Have you ever said something snarky, spiteful, unkind, or just plain thoughtless, to someone you love? How did it go? Did you get into a fight or hear a defensive reaction? Or worse. Perhaps you ended a relationship.
    It happened to us and opened a door to greater intimacy. As Paul started to take lunch to his desk, Carol let fly this one: “So, do you like your computer better than your wife?”
    The tone was accusatory, not inviting.

    Irritations in Relationships

    Irritations in Relationships

    At the beginning of our workshop, “Relationship: The Real Deal,” some participants are startled when we announce this intention: “The issues you have been dealing with, trying to fix, or just plain tolerating … dissolve/disappear simply by being in relationship.”

    When Your Relationship Isn’t Working, What Should You Do?

    When Your Relationship Isn’t Working, What Should You Do?

    Well, our first question for you is, “Are you willing to set aside your penchant to fix, change or leave your relationship?”

    Leaving, either physically or emotionally, surely doesn’t resolve anything. It simply transports your concerns to your next relationship.

    But staying and trying to deal with it doesn’t resolve anything either - especially when you don’t know what you’re dealing with. Fixing and changing do not work when you don’t know what you’re working on in the first place.

    Ordinary to Extraordinary… in a Moment

    Ordinary to Extraordinary… in a Moment

    How do people move from ordinary relationship to extraordinary relationship?

    In ordinary relationship, we react to upsets by pulling out of the experience of relationship, the experience that we actually long for.

    It’s extraordinary to be aware that upset, irritation or annoyance are simply our individual reactions to ordinary events.
