I enjoyed the immediate call to action to help boost mood and love. Action is what brings change and change is if it’s what we are after is the goal.
Trying To Repair
I’m hoping I can try to adapt this to the situation I’m in. I’m struggling with depression and it’s causing a lot of the aspects of my marriage to suffer, so I’m trying to find ways to work on that. I’m hoping I can adapt this lesson/call to action to work with us so I can try and repair where we’re at, but this message seems to be geared more towards singles or dating folks. Hopefully it’ll still have the intended affect, and I did try to write down and schedule something.
Getting some action?
I learned that I need to find different options in that arena of life and love. There’s a fine line between enabling and control. Healthy support is the key.
Controlling Emotions
When you act on the positive impact of things in your relationship, DO NOT Resist or hold back to your feelings reinforce positive thoughts actions or emotions
Dating and relationship behaviors
Used to bring pleasure - Sex, dates, cuddle, adventure, laugh, updating and maintaining a sexy dating profile. Texting someone back. Sharing a meal and quality time. Attentively engage. Dedicate time Past actions - what’s missing I feel ugly, they’re nowhere to be found, I don’t feel sexy Emotion- frustration, lazy, Makes me act lazy Then go explore anyways
I have sad feelings when I think about a romantic encounter not going well, it is usually me who doesn’t like them and that makes me sad. I know why I won’t try to date now, my avoidance of anything painful.
