REAL LOVE Part 9: The Potential Vs. The Person

As humans, we run the risk of falling into the trap of the rat-race, the “chase the carrot” lifestyle. I will never forget how hard I laughed during the Landmark Forum the day the teacher gave us the chasing-the-carrot analogy. The reason I was laughing so hard that I almost choked was because it was true.

REAL LOVE Part 8: To Good To Be True

It was only a couple days into my 90-day experiment (of finding truth, understanding and real love and connection during the onset of a new relationship) that I began to suffer at the hands of the big fat “F.” That would be fear, ladies and gentlemen. I kept a written log for a couple of months, to record how I was feeling, what came up for me, and to reference it as this journey progressed.

REAL LOVE Part 6: You Will Be Tested

We are tested in life not just in love

I once picked up a book about love. Though I didn’t really agree with some of the content, language used, or tone presented, I did get through about two chapters. Maybe if I stuck with it, it would have gotten better. For that, I owe the book an apology: I’ll pick you up, again, one day and give you another shot. We all deserve another chance. And often times, our minds play tricks on us.

REAL LOVE Part 5: The Danger in Omissions

Ask yourself: Why do we censor what we tell people? Why do we take things personal? Why are we self-conscious?
