Reflections By Madeleine P. Maya

As individuals that have the responsibility to our future beings we need to  guide children to be complete and intact, as we prepare them , let us teach them to  have healthy adult relationships, and develop into strong, positive individuals. Abilities to manage their emotions, overcome challenges, and develop pro-social relationships impact their wellbeing.

We need to teach them life skills such as to learn self -discovery, self and social – awareness, self-management, decision making, assertiveness, time management, self-worth and self-love, empathy and connection.

Somehow we have lost these human values and have forgotten how significant they are for our a functional society.  Schools should incorporate these basics skills in their curriculum with psychoeducation as part of their core classes in Middle and Highschool.

Intimacy with your partner is basic to a happy relationship. Explore with them the following questions; “1. Physical: How and when do you like to be touched by me? 2. Mental: What can we talk about that is interesting and fulfilling to you? 3. Emotional: How can I make you feel safe to talk openly about your feelings? 4. Spiritual: What gives you meaning in life that you would like to share with me?” Randi Gunther Ph.D. Randi Gunther Ph.D. Rediscovering Love

Vulnerabilities for infidelity can be linked to relationship problems such as conflict avoidance, fear of intimacy, or life cycle changes like the transition to parenthood, and empty nesting. Some dissatisfied partners begin an external relationship as a way of exiting an unhappy relationship. And frequently the involved partner will re-write the relational history in order to justify an ongoing affair. It is unreasonable to compare a forbidden love affair that is maintained by romantic idealization with the routine familiarity of marriage and long-term coupling. Glass, S. (1998, August). Shattered vows. Psychology Today, pp. 34ff.

This life has only this body to live. Remember to kiss those you love. Enjoy the outdoors, breathe the fresh air, walk in nature, go on vacation, and live the life you deserve. You only have this Life, enjoy it and don’t waste any time living it fully. Art Reflections by Madeleine P. Maya

Toda Pareja tiene que protejer su relacion. No hay garentias de que no se de infidelidad. Aprecia tu relacion, demuestra tu amor y se afectuoso/a. Ten atenciones que demuestran respeto y admiracion. Cuida tu relacion y no permites que las faltas y omisiones debiliten tu relacion. Reflecciones de Madeleine P. Maya

“Intimacy And the Fear of Exposure” “This does NOT mean that you blab your life story to just any ol’ e-date of any new friend. Intimacy is a slow, trust-validated process. Trust is the keyword and you can’t just TRUST anyone with your life, your secrets, your thoughts. People really can hurt you, they can use your words against you. They can tell the world. About you. So take your time. Be discerning. Just something to think about. Copyright 2007, TherapyDoc Posted by therapydoc at 5:18 ” Shared by Madeleine P. Maya
