Fearless Living - rise in love

I think we’ve all done enough damage with this whole “falling” in love thing. Yes, the initial descent can feel pretty amazing, but oh, the inevitable collapse on the other side of that bliss, no matter how pure our initial intentions.

As a part of our year-long focus on Fearless Living, let’s choose another aim. This year let’s rise in love instead of fall.

For all the newcomers, this is the fourth month in a year-long series on how to live fearlessly. As a Denver therapist, my goal is to help each and every one of you become the superhero in your own life. Each month is designed to help you explore, process, practice, and (yes!) master an area of your life fearlessly. I invite you to check out previous months, in which I discussed a brief introduction to fearlessness, loving yourself fearlessly, and dating fearlessly.

With your new skills in the arenas of both self-love and dating, chances are good you may find yourself in the near future feeling those fuzzy warm tingles for someone special. I can’t think of a better time to help you approach the next stage of your budding relationships with new insight and guidance by exploring how to love fearlessly through rising in love.

Sometimes it’s even hard to remember pre-COVID times when you made the last-minute decision to go to dinner or sit at a bar for happy hour, or even join in a communal table at a popular coffee shop. The pandemic has reduced the frequency of these popular social activities and because these experiences are highly scarce and limited now, they are valued more than ever before. You likely have a renewed appreciation for activities that ...

You Are Not Afraid of New Love, You Are Afraid of Old Pain
Couple overlooking the city

When I recently read this line on an Instagram post, I quickly jotted it down, eager to share it with my clients as a succinct way to explain something we often discuss in sessions at my practice Center for Shared Insight in Denver, Colorado. As a therapist, I regularly see how clients are reacting to old wounds through their current behaviors, and this was so well-put: “you are not afraid of new love, you are afraid of old pain”. 

When you are reacting to old pain ...
