In love, when you dismiss the truth that your mind and gut tell you about a particular person or situation for the sake of being accepted in a relationship, you will pay a price. You must be your own savior.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
As she prepares for her upcoming “First-Class Love” workshop in Boulder, CO on November 11, 2012, Love Coach and Psychotherapist, Heather Hans is offering insights and a free 20-min strategy session for women looking for success in the World of Love.
Hans has extensive expertise in addiction, and she combines her knowledge with the issues women face in love relationships to help them achieve the passionate, healthy, and soulful love that they desire.
“Addiction (to anything) is a compulsive behavior driven by a desire to escape the present moment. The desire to escape the present moment is driven by feelings of disconnection from Self, others, and universal energy. There is never truly disconnect, but the feelings of such give rise to the need to escape the projected pain of it,” added Hans. “When it comes to relationships, our biggest addiction is often the need of approval from others to feel worthy, and so we hold on to unsatisfying relationships like junkies hold on to drugs.”
One attribute unique to humans is the ability to think critically. When behavior is driven solely by feelings, without mindfulness, dysfunction and addiction will often result. History shows that massive group think, in which people forgo their critical thinking abilities because they want to fit in or are swept away by a charismatic leader, is extremely dangerous and destructive. The consequences of neglecting critical thinking in order to feel connected and accepted are dire, asserts Hans. “In love, when you dismiss the truth that your mind and gut tell you about a particular person or situation for the sake of being accepted in a relationship, you will pay a price. You must be your own savior. We were given critical thinking abilities for a reason, and it is first and foremost your individual responsibility as to whether you want to live whole, as you were created, or as an incomplete and broken soul.”
Hans continued, “In order to evolve and rise above addictive behavior and a need for approval, you must value and use your birthright of critical thinking, rather than being enslaved and swept away by the heat of your emotions. You must be conscious. Do not settle for a relationship that is less than what you desire out of fear that you won’t find anything better. As you say “no” to one thing, you say “yes” to something else and, in the process, you will build within yourself a solid strength that will bring you more love than approval from others or a quick high can ever give you.”
