I'm approaching 30, and I've been dating him for over half a decade. We've lived in four cities together, and we share our home, our creative work and our dreams with each other. He's the one, and I plan to marry him. But not today. And even after all the progress we've made in the name of women's independence, I'm still shamed for it.
I ask my wife to marry me everyday. Or sometimes I thank her for marrying me. Every single day, I make sure that my wife knows that I love being married to her. It has been almost ten years since our first date, we've been married for over six years and I plan to let her know every day for the rest of my life that I want her to be my wife.
I know that my self-esteem decline interferes with me and my husband's intimacy. I know I don't feel attractive and that's why I'm not attracted. So I will continue to pray that I rediscover myself, that I rediscover my femininity, and that I gain the motivation to make myself feel and look beautiful again.
I share practices and strategies to support exploring and integrating your inner knowing, rather than dreading the feelings of being out of control in overwhelm, numbing or anger, to help women get more grounded in their intimate relationships from the inside out. So what strategies can we employ to tune into our deeper sense of knowing? Here are a few to consider:
What I found seems simple, however, like many of the couples reported it requires dedication, consistency, and you must work at it. I have taken all their responses and turned it into a commitment of promises that couples can make to each other. Something to work on every wonderful day of your lives together.
