My seat is reclined back at an angle so that my legs can fully stretch out. My feet are on the dashboard and my toes are making little imprints on the glass. As I pull them off, you can still see where they once were, leaving their own individual mark upon the surface. The radio is set to NPR. No pop music with up-tempo beats for us. Only monotone voices discussing politics and world issues. I don’t mind though, it’s our thing. Our common thread.
In “Against Love”, Laura Kipnis discusses modern love and her definition of it. Kipnis argues how in today’s world our concept of love is based on subjugation and criticizes how our expectations of love today are surreal. She believes that expecting love from just one person for our whole life is against our basic human nature. Kipnis exclaims how ridiculous she finds that in today’s society, wanting more than one partner is looked down upon and shamed. She says loving one person for the rest of our lives is a rather modern concept that blossomed only after the 17th century with the growing trend of novels and poetry. She asserts how this love requires unreal amounts of effort for a relationship it to work, consequently making
My father has always had a strong sense of fairness and judgment. His perceptiveness has given me the opportunity to share my introspective thoughts with him. While many teenagers have tense and conflict-ridden relationships with their parents, I pride myself on being close with both my mother and father. I trust them to have more wisdom based on experience, and often look to them for advice. Because of this, I should have known my father was right when he worried that I was becoming too consumed by my love of the television show Supernatural last year.

My parents who had no formal education due to the Vietnam War and the aftermath had a big effect on their lives and mine, as well. They didn’t meet and get married until 1996 but both of my parents sought for a better life in America. Coincidentally, they moved to the U.S. and the same state, Washington State, in 1992. When they had me, they did everything they can to support me and give me a life they never had.
Perception plays such a critical part in separating the “positive” from the “negative” about anyone, but especially about our closest relatives. We tend to remember, or sensationalize, certain events – quite often the negative ones, while not putting enough emphasis on the positive ones. Perhaps that’s because of their normalcy… but, in turn, these activities constitute the greater part of our daily lives.
What hurts me the most is when my husband plays video games at night when we should be spending time together and having a mindful conversation. We only get a few hours at most each day together and I want to be doing something that betters our relationship. I love when we cook or do any small task together because we talk about life and it brings us closer together. We talk about our mistakes that we made that day and laugh about the funny things that got us through the day. I feel that spending time together makes us grow as a couple and makes us healthier as individuals. I feel stronger and more at peace when I have spent time with my best friend. I have talked about love languages with my husband and he tries to understands how we both show and receive love. I am finding that after an hour or so with us spending time together and really talking, I don’t mind him going in playing the game for a little while. I guess I just want to know that I am more important than that game. I want him to want to spend time with his family. I must say that he has been amazing at trying to spend as must time with me as possible when I am home. He told me that he didn’t know it upset me so much. I need to learn to
Family therapy is a common type of psychotherapy technique used for untangling issues or developing existing relationships in a better way within families and intimate relationships. It is natural for families and couples to face communication problems which could end up in separation and similar effects. These problems could often occur as a result of skill deficits in the relationship, difficulty in problem solving, negative behaviours (infidelity, drinking problems etc.), lack of intimacy, feeling unsafe or not accepted by the other. Supposedly, people gained consciousness about these issues in the last few years. The crucial point after giving the decision to go to the therapy
The couple individually took the Prepare/Enrich Assessment online at the beginning of their therapy. The results provided information in the areas of the couple’s strengths, weaknesses, stress levels, couple dynamics, and included a SCOPE personality scale.

I believe that a lot of people, including me, sooner or later will get the most challenging job ever, which is raising a child. Most of them, especially mothers, are afraid to become a parent. I mentioned mother is because a mother usually spending more time with their children compare to a father, so mother has a bigger influence for children. There are a lot of reason for them to be afraid, because we live in such a cruel and an unfair world are few of them. One big mistake could hurt them. One big mistake could make them worse. After read the book of Mindset by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D. I know that children are sensitive, they would be able to sense anything since they were really young.
Love and marriage often go hand in hand. Without love, it is difficult to uphold a successful marriage. Some say there is no true love, and the idea of true love is a questionable theory. Many compare love to a ghost that few have seen but many speak about. Love is thought to be like the foundation and marriage like the house. Without a strong foundation a successful house cannot be built. If no true love can be attained, it is questionable if love exists in marriage. Advocating for love and marriage is difficult when there always seems to be complications. In Raymond Carver’s book Where I’m Calling From he addresses the topic of love and marriage negatively in a variety of ways. Raymond Carver is not a proponent of love but rather, an opponent of
In 2002, if someone had told me I’d be a divorcee today, I would have laughed in their face. Not just because I was vehemently against divorce, but also because I knew James and I were in it for the long haul. From our first date to our wedding day, we were inseparable. Our goals and interests were seemingly aligned and we were hailed as a perfect match by our family and friends. Even though I suspected things were off before our wedding day, I was convinced we both had the dedication to see it through. I was a new Christian, due to his persistence, and had a lot of maturing to do. But, it wasn’t until my relationship with Christ deepened that I realized our marriage was doomed.
