A Healthy Dependence?

I’m beginning to become dependent on him again and that scares me. I’m not dependent on him for the everyday functional things like eating, bathing and breathing, but I’m dependent on him emotionally. For instance, I can always tell if he and I have an argument before we go to sleep or don’t get a chance to talk before we go to sleep, because I wake up moody, bothered and dissatisfied.

No Question About It... This Is Love

I love him. I do. I love him with a love that I feel within my body, within my soul, within my heart. It’s crazy how much I love this man. But what’s even more extraordinary is that he loves me! I know he loves me—not because he told me, but because he didn’t have to tell me. I feel it. I feel it within my being that he truly wants to be with me and truly adores me. The feel of his love is so strong, so heavy, so lasting that I literally felt the moment it happened.  I literally felt the moment he let himself love me fully and completely…...more

Just Because Someone Says You Stink, Doesn't Make Them Right!

Kathy Caprino Hello! How’s your week going?  Great, I hope. Personally, I’ve had a few hard knocks this week from several people who indicated they’d like to offer constructive feedback, but then proceeded to tear down and put down. Constructive or Destructive?...more

Living The Dream (Like A Man)

I must confess that I am wrestling with a certain angst. The word "feminist" has gotten me down.   It has been my good fortune to know a life of limitless possibilities. Save for the time I was booted from a baseball game for being a girl, any gender bias that came my way was not very obvious.  And okay, I admit it -- I was a terrible ball player.   Today, my life would fit a traditional mold of male success....more
