From Neediness and Hurt to Steady Love: Insights From My Love Journey.
Updated: Apr 10
Rummaging through an old box recently, I stumbled upon some old love letters between my first love and I. Reading them gave me a bit of a shock. At first they had me in tears, a queasy pit of shame in my tummy.
But then I saw something very important about myself that I knew needed to be shared with you.
The letters were a brilliant confirmation of how much change is possible when it comes to love--even if, like I did for so long, you’ve always struggled in relationships with feeling hurt, abandonment, resentment, frustration, anger, neediness, or loneliness.
So, to inspire and offer you real hope, I‘m sharing this deeply personal story about finding these letters and the discovery that my natural approach to love made my early love life very hard.
I share how I unknowingly carried all that pain and deep unfulfilled desire to feel totally loved into my first marriage --to its demise. And how utterly I have changed my approach to love, which has brought me the most REAL, solid, deep love in my marriage now--a love I’d only dreamed of before.
Listen to this audio episode of Love Talks on a Walk to hear:
How I dealt with the recognition that I created a lot of (if not all) the pain I experienced in my love life (Hint: It’s not self-blame!).
What I finally told myself that made these enormous changes possible for me.Some of what I did-- and you can, too-- to actually make this giant shift in my experience of love and LEARNED to have an amazing relationship.
What a solid sense of being loved and of being able to LOVE my husband I have now and how you, too, can have a marriage that, instead of draining you, provides the loving nourishing foundation from which to spread your wings and enjoy a wholly meaningful life.
If you’re experiencing any kind of unhappiness or dissatisfaction in your relationship, this episode will give you the hope and inspiration you need to make the changes necessary to finally have the kind of love you’ve always wanted.
If it was possible for me, it is SO possible for you. Listen in and you’ll see why.
