No One Is An Island

We are always stronger supporting one another than standing apart.

Many of us are fortunate enough to have at least one strong, steadfast person in our lives who serves as a constant grounding force, empowering counsel and broad shoulder to cry on.

Over the years I have experienced, and become more and more aware of the distortion in focus on those who are perceived or labelled as weak, as opposed to those who are considered to be strong. Social services, community supports and even friend, family and professional networks often serve those in obvious need, In the process, overlooking those individuals who quietly continue to work towards “getting things done” on their own.

Making The First Move

sunset-865310_640I’m an introvert and very private person. Although, first impressions of me would say otherwise, because I present as a friendly and engaging person.

So no, I do not have a “hate-on” for men. We are all, male and female alike, comprised of both masculine and feminine energies. The more we honour this, the more integrated and authentic we become as human beings.

But I digress, while this is a subject is a departure from my typical writings, it has taken precedence in many of my conversations with others of late. Women of all ages have been engaging with me regarding their dating and relationship experiences (as women do). And, woefully the conversation always comes back to, Why Women Lose Interest in Men. I’m not referring to bedroom techniques, what’s in his financial portfolio, or the fact he no longer goes to the gym; despite what many articles on the subject would have you believe most women really are NOT that shallow. In fact, as you read on you’ll discover that is the crux of the problem! Continue reading
