You've probably dealt with the know it alls, the nose raisers and the toppers who top anything you got and then some. Maybe you've also seen those who should just get their garbage together and get a life.
I know. Speak for yourself. Right, Dr. Dennis? RIght. I've been on both sides of the coin, too, but...
Haven't we all?
You know if Relationships are one of the most important things in life, these behaviors need to be dealt with in the best way possible in our own situations.
First things first, it starts with self. Am I taking these closed hard stances? Am I mad all the time? Have I been acting like I know it all, being critical and using my tongue more than ears?
You know we're all mirrors of our relationships. How are they going?
Like it or not, studies show that having the open and 'Everyone is doing the best they can with what they have' attitude is superior to the critical & judgemental...
I have a reminder that goes off that asks me 3 questions everyday. One of those questions to myself is, "What could throw me off?" One thing that can sucker you in is a 'Hot Mess'! I've always heard, "Hurt people hurt people.
Try taking a deep breath, expressing that you hear the 'Hot Mess' in front of you or simply, "I hear you!", and feel their pain or simply saying, "I feel your pain.". Allow yourself to empathize to truly hear & feel. I mean who hasn't been Hurt or in a 'HOT' state before?
It's that simple. Don't tell someone how to fix something or be a solution. Simply try to BE a Good Ear & Feeler today!
There's POWER in empathy!
Let's get better at it!
Yours In Love & Learning,
Dr Howard Dennis
Dear God, forgive me of my wrongs, forgive those who've wronged me, help me forgive, help those forgive me that I've wronged and help me go forward accordingly. In Jesus Name I Pray.
Forgiveness & Mercy are Biblical & proven. When we extend it in our relationships the hormone oxytocin is released. This is linked to extending our lives physically in years (more so in males than females).
How we converse and act towards each other doesn't need to be perfect, just infused with heavy doses of Mercy.
While your knuckles are dragging on the ground, walk gently in this life with all its strife!

Our brains are wired to go forward. So shouldn't we set our best future self out in front of us continuously? First, write it out. Have pictures. Second, feel & visualize your emotions and how it will feel every step of the way! Create and feel the negative along with the positive on this visual, visceral and emotionally attached journey. We need to feel the pain and consequences of our poor behavior without masking it so we can learn what we don't want and vice versa. Ray Dalio calls these 1st order consequences. Many times 1st order consequences of any dream are rough, but we must embrace these to get to the second order consequences of Joy and Fulfillment to our desired outcome.
Mental projections become real when feelings and emotions are attached. Usually lack of discipline is masking or not allowing yourself to feel the negative emotions tied with negative behavior. I remember hearing Tony Robins speak about this....
