SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Eariler this month my computer monitor went dark. It wasn't sudden. It just began to fade until nothing was present on the screen.

Relationships are often like that. At first, you don't even notice that there might be a problem. It usually happens when you begin to take each other for granted. You stop talking about what is really important and relevant to your relationship. Or you stop listening.

You gradually go dark. You fail to deliver the communication to your partner that is needed to monitor the progress of your relationship.

It took me several days to seek a solution. Once the "decision" was made, the rest was easy. Things began to fall into place and before long I was able to monitor everything on my hard disk.

Making the choice to change is always the hardest part. For me, buying a new computer monitor was an unexpected disappointment and unavoidably delayed this months eZINE.

Withholding important conversation from your partner nearly always proves to be the destructive force behind the, "My partner will not listen to me!" or "My partner will not talk to me" complaint.

This month's relationship article will provide a workable solution. You may want to print it and read it often to help you monitor your relationship, or pass it along to a friend whose relationship has gone dark.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Intimacy is the only path to passion. Not sharing intimately negates the opportunity to grow together. Honesty in communication bonds two lovers in a very special way. A lack of open communication closes the door to intimacy, passion, great sex and unconditional love. Dare to reveal yourself. Become transparent, not invisible. . . transparent. Let your lover see through you to the real you. The depth of connection that comes from genuine intimacy is unimaginable and worth it!

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  You cannot change someone else. It simply is not possible. Give it up. Love them and work on you. Never stop working on you. If your love partner doesn't keep up, who fault is that? It's a sad state of affairs, but you have to live with 'you' for the rest of your life. You are the most important person in the relationship. You come first.

Change yourself and you give others the power to change if they choose to. Being the best you can be in spite of your partner's lack of interest in personal growth or the growth of the relationship can be the very thing that serves as the inspiration needed for them to be willing to initiate change for themselves.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Men and women often perceive the same situation differently. They both are watching the same picture but to one, the picture may be blurred and out of focus. To the other, everything is crystal clear. There are as many opinions about things as there are people. Not everyone is on the same frequency.

When you do the work of healthy love relationships, you are always about the business of fine-tuning your relationship so that when different versions of the same picture show up, you can lovingly communicate your different perceptions and love each other for having shared them in a healthy way.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Healthy, committed love partners will say, "I'm sorry. I was wrong," and mean it, rather than hold on to being right or walking away.

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

Larry gets LoveNotes. . . "Things are going very well. Communication between us is better and we're planning almost weekly date nights for the next month. I sent him a card at his work and that really helped his attitude, so thank you for that suggestion. I want you to know that it is very comforting to know that there are people like you that have such a genuine care and love to help others. I hope that many others benefit from your knowledge and wisdom."

Featured Relationship Article

Communicating is Not Optional - A communication gap not only undermines the potential of your relationship; it can, and usually will eventually destroy the relationship. Use an effective process Larry James uses when coaching couples to teach them to listen and talk, but not at the same time.

Relationship Humor

One bright, beautiful Sunday morning, everyone in the tiny town of Johnstown got up early and went to the local church. Before the services started, the townspeople were sitting in their pews and talking about their lives, their families, etc. Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church. Everyone started screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate.

Soon everyone was evacuated from the Church, except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew, not moving. . . seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence. This confused Satan a bit, so he walked up to the man and said, "Don't you know who I am?"

The man replied, "Yep, sure do."

Satan asked, "Aren't you afraid of me?"

"Nope, sure ain't," said the man.

Satan was a little perturbed at this and queried, "Why aren't you afraid of me?"

The man calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for over 48 years!" is the crème de la crème of intimacy Websites! Banner
