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.

4 Ways to Respond to Gaslighting

Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation that someone uses on you to gain control in a partnership, which could be with a loved one, boss, family member or others.
