Rules For Fair Fighting In Relationships

Keep Your Promises: Your Kids Rely On It - Providence Life Coaching and Reiki Counseling -
Rules for fair fighting. It sounds like an oxymoron. If you take a minute to reflect, most of us suck when it comes to arguing and fighting with the people we love. I was not talking about your partner, I'm talking about you. Me too. Of all the things that we are taught by our families, friends, schools and culture, it is rare that children are well-trained in how to manage conflict in a meaningful and productive way.  Let's explore one of the many sets of rules for fair fighting in relationships together.   Rules For Fair Fighting In Relationships - Providence Life Coach and Reiki Counselor ...

Why Nice Guys Stay Single – So Do Bad Boys

Doubt - Providence Life Coaching and Reiki Counseling - Will Smith
When I first saw the heading, "Why Nice Guys Stay Single", I rolled me eyes, at least I tried. I have never perfected eye-rolling. I thought to myself, "Another article written by a bitter, single woman who likes bad boys who treat her like shit". I was completely wrong. I have no idea if Kathryn Hogan is single, but she is definitely not bitter and incredibly perceptive. Here is a quote from this article, if this does not move you, no need to read further.
"What women—evolved, mature, powerful women—actually need is a man who embodies the divinity of manhood. This may sound mystical, but it’s not. Every man is sacred, can touch the sacred masculine within him, can be a man who stands in compassion, loyalty, and honor, who cares enough to realize that only his true, unfiltered presence is good enough for this world. A man with a powerful heart, who can hold a woman in his presence, who can weather her emotional storms, who is nourished by being near her, and sees her divinity, and gives endlessly of himself."
This article explores why being a nice guy will only get you so far. You must dive deeper into yourself and express all that makes you, you. The real you. The authentic you. Nice guys are men that are hiding from themselves, and the women they wish to connect with and love. No more Mr. Nice Guy (see Alice Cooper song below for kicks).

Women & Booze: Is Everything We Know About Alcoholism Wrong? – mindbodygreen.com

Providence Life Coaching and Reiki Counseling- Helping, Fixing or Serving?
This is an interesting article on Women & Booze. The main thesis is that men and women interact with alcohol differently, therefore, Alcoholic Anonymous is not the best option for women, since many are not alcoholic according to the author. There are several important points she raises about women & booze such as the lack of ability of A.A, to adapt and update program elements that may not make sense any longer, or maybe never did. This is valid and I have presented similar thoughts before. In addition, the chapter, "To Wives" was not actually written by ...

They Are Real People – Inspiring Video – The Game

They are real people. We are real people. Respect, love and support are not foreign words nor hard to do.  "The Game" is an inspiring video created by One Student. It is so awesome to see young people, men in particular, stand-up and speak out against sexual assault. This was unheard of when I was a student. The young men who may have wanted to stand were squashed by the guys who were bigger, stronger and/or louder.  It was disguised as, "Boys will be boys", or pressured into silence by both men and women. These women are real people, not just statistics.  It was the "thing" that nobody wanted to talk about, at least that is the way it seemed. I was not aware of anyone willing to have these kinds of discussions, but the crowd I ran with was why I have that perception. As I reflect on this further, I clearly remember that the African-American college community was active in race, class and gender conversation regularly. I had several friends within the community and would sometimes be present during these honest and often tense discussions. Real people having real conversations.   They Are Real People - Inspiring One Student Video - The Game - Providence Life Coach and Reiki Counselor ...
