SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Conflict is inevitable. How we handle it is what makes the difference. When the structure of a love relationship breaks down, while fault may not necessarily be evenly distributed, both partners must ultimately accept equal responsibility. You are in this together.

It takes two for a healthy love relationship to work and it takes two to perpetuate an unhealthy love relationship. Seek not to place blame. What difference will that make? You both know the truth about what happened. Who cares whose fault it is?

"I do!" she screamed, "You just can't imagine what a jerk he is!"

He quickly and angrily countered with, "I wouldn't be such a jerk if you wouldn't nag at me all the time!"

Blah! Blah! Blah!

Who cares whose fault it is? If you love each other, focus on solving the problem! What happened, happened. That's all! It's not healthy to make things up about why something happened or who did what to whom. Again. . . who cares?

The goal of resolving conflict in a relationship is not victory or defeat. It is reaching a mutual understanding that benefits both love partners. Resolving conflict brings love partners closer together. It allows for negotiation and compromise.

Have a wonderful Holiday Season!

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  As we come to understand our equal share in creating problems. . . blame, self-doubt, and discord gives way to personal responsibility, accountability, mutual respect and intimacy. In a healthy love relationship, things are easiest when both love partners take responsibility for the whole, not just their halves.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  For Singles Only - Beware of dancing hormones! They often mask a multitude of stuff. You know what I mean. It's that time when both of your antennas go up! You're tuned in to each other. Your body tells you things you didn't know about yourself. Your heart is dancing! Is it your heart or your hormones? To some, that is the fun part; a time for romance; the time when you are deep in thought. . . "Is this the one?"

While it's true that this part of a relationship feels good, perhaps you should follow your heart instead of your hormones on this one. The hormones will scream words like: 'forget all that stuff about healthy love relationships, live fast, love hard and get this one before he or she gets away!' or 'carve another notch, this one's the same as in bed!' or whatever the hormones moan.

Your heart will whisper words like: 'take it easy!' - 'one step at a time!' - 'get to know each other' - 'tell each other the relevant truth' - 'make sure it's love and not just sex!' or whatever the heart could say that would be words of love and encouragement.

Only and always listen to your heart!

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Letting go of behavioral patterns that no longer serve us often feels as though we are risking our safety and comfort. Calculated risks taken for the benefit of our own well being are worth taking. This form of movement is safer than standing still. Those who remain stationary become an easy target for misery of their own creation. The energy we expend by holding on often leaves us drained and with a feeling of hopelessness. It takes no strength to let go; only courage. Courage is a byproduct of a positive self- image.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Plateaus and setbacks are natural to progress. Growth in an intimate relationship is never in a straight, upward line.

From the book, "LoveNotes for Lovers: Words That Make Music for Two Hearts Dancing!" by Larry James

Larry gets LoveNotes. . . "I've been a hard-core biker for many years. I thought I had forgotten how to cry. I'm relieved to know that I have another side of me that my partner can see and I can be okay with. No more insincere effort at trying to make everyone think I am someone I'm not. Thanks for taking me down a notch. I'm glad our paths have crossed."

Sample: To measure flour for a pie crust causes no pain, but measure your baking skills against those of your friends -- while you are mixing the pie's ingredients -- and all you succeed at doing is making yourself miserable. Comparing ourselves to anyone or anything is, by law, a recipe for pain! - Guy Finley

Relationship Humor

A married couple was in a terrible accident where the man's face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from his body because he was too skinny. So the wife offered to donate some of her own skin. However, the only skin on her body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from her buttocks.

The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from, and they requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the man's new face. He looked more handsome than he ever had before! All his friends and relatives just went on and on about his youthful beauty!

One day, he was alone with his wife, and he was overcome with emotion at her sacrifice. He said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. How can I possibly repay you?"

"My darling," she replied, "I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek."
