    I feel a a lot better with these different approaches in my arsenal to be better prepared and comfortable to speak my mind. I don’t feel so lost. Thank you so much for your advice!

    I am curious about trying the chakra techniques as well. I might incorporate the practices into my daily life and see if this brings me closer to expressing myself even more.

    You have been so helpful Saiisha.

    Now that I am looking inward, I am seeing I haven’t been respecting myself much, I overthink and constantly put myself down. I am sure this doesn’t help with any situation including people I interact with. I will try to focus more on myself and improve, to see if this helps with my interactions with others.

    I feel it would be a good start to try to write an email to a person who has been bothering me and start this process as well as practice out loud to myself before dealing with them in person, as well as writing my thoughts in a journal.

    I appreciate you pushing me in the right direction on this.

    I am curious about the Chakras you mentioned, how do these work?

    Hi Salisha,

    It is more towards people I interact with, where they either constantly negative or just don’t respect me.

    Thank you Kath and Yatin,

    I appreciate your feedback and wisdom. You’re both right, I have been putting immense pressure on myself to be creative and in the process it halts my inspirational thoughts. I will just move forward and go with the flow. If I have find my creative voice wonderful and if not no need to push myself. (:

    Hi Rose,

    Thank you so much for your reply. I am just overwhelming myself with emotions lately. I have a habit of holding feelings in on many different levels.

    I will try out a hate letter just to get my feelings out on paper and see what is underlying that is bothering me. And it might make it easier for me to explain to my fiance. Instead of seeking attention elsewhere.

    I’m going to have to make time for myself to build my confidence back up and just let these feelings out even they hurt.

    I appreciate your perspective and understanding,

    Best,
    Doreen

    I know I am withholding my emotions towards the situation, which is why I feel this way.
    I do sincerely love this man, I just need to find a way to approach this instead of fighting and retaliating against him.

    Hi Marek33,

    I understand your situation, I too have been there. Not knowing what to expect and thinking of ways I can please the person I have a relationship with and beating myself up over mistakes I think I am making. I know it is hard to let go of insecurities and being hurt, but I can tell you this openness to feeling love starts with yourself, start focusing inwards on ways to fall in love with yourself, hobbies, interests, things that make you and your heart happy. And when you do end up finding the right person you will have the confidence to find that balance of space and letting yourself feel loved by the other person.

    It’s a challenge, but I know you can do it. <3

    Take Care,
    Doreen

    Hi Cianna,

    I feel this way about my relationship I have with my fiance, I have been with him for 3 years and we don’t celebrate anniversaries or holidays where we need to show our love for each other through gifts and courtship on a specific day or time frame. Neither one of us are impressed by these “romantic actions”. Nor do we behave where we withhold our feelings of love for one another when we get in a fight as an act of punishment or revenge. Or use our affections to get what we want in the relationship. Love should limitless not restricted to a perceived ideal that should be right or wrong, or that there is a certain way to show and express love. Love has no label.

    Hi Trevor!

    The best motivation is to focus more on yourself and on what makes you, well you. No Comparison here.

    Go after your hobbies, goals and enjoy life without expectations.

    Don’t let your mind overtake your heart in romance, keep everything open, let things go even rejection and keep moving forward.

    Only when you love yourself will you be able to truly love someone else.

    Hi Todzilla,

    I have experienced my fiance having an emotional affair within our engagement. And oddly enough it too has brought us closer together. It was a revelation how this can instead of weakening our bond, strengthened what we share. Not saying affairs are acceptable and should always be forgiven. But it really opens up the issues and problems you are having as a couple. Depending on the values of each other you are able to grow from this. Other times it shows you that you are not meant to be and this is a sign to move on. But it does bring some awareness and a sense of honesty to yourself as a person regardless of the outcome. So in fact it is quite normal.

    Hi Jeff,

    Arguments in a relationship can either bring you closer together or pull you apart. In your case it seems these arguments have damaged beyond repair in her eyes. I notice at times, women do not speak their opinions and have problems expressing their feelings so instead they look for an exit aka divorce. Have you talked to her about why she walks around egg shells around you?

    If it is because of your behavior and you are willing to change, I would wait and focus on yourself more. If she really cares about you she will see that you are changing for the better and reconcile with you. But I wouldn’t force this.

    I can totally relate to your feelings and situation.
    I am currently recovering from an emotional cheating my fiance had back a few months ago.
    It was short lived, but still the damage was done.
    I know how hard this is to go through but the best advice you can do for yourself and him is to forgive.
    Holding onto the past and resentful feelings is almost as damaging as the cheating that took place to your relationship.
    It really comes down to if are you willing to forgive and move forward only then will trust be built again and the fear will subside.
    If you have questions and feel it is not right trust your instinct and move on, you are worthy of so much more and holding on will only hold you back.

    Hi Charlie,

    I have been with my fiance for 3 years and at times, I have doubts, I consider them normal as long as they don’t affect your relationship. But it is always good to keep in mind what the doubts are, if you need to you can always talk to your partner to make sure things are clear.
