       appropriate and satisfying sex life?

7.    Are you in a life transition?
8.    Are you feeling angry or frustrated?
9.    Are you feeling guilt and shame?

If you answered YES, to 1 or more, then counselling can help you...

 

  • Move from feeling stuck to feeling empowered

  • Address unresolved issues

  • Find balance and well-being

  • Learn and apply practical coping skills, strategies and techniques

  • Live an authentic life

On a scale of 1 to 10, rate how often do you and your partner engage in the following.

 

1. Criticism: finding what you think is wrong with the other; blame


2. Defensiveness: lack of openness to understanding; arguing; proving you're right; slamming a door; anger; sarcasm


3. Contempt: negative non-verbal behavior expressions of dislike; eye rolling, huffs


4. Silent Treatment: ignoring the other person; walking away, refusing to talk

A healthy balanced relationship would rate 0.

The presence of any of these reveals:

  • that it is time to consider marriage or couple counselling!  

  • that there are issues that will prevent you from having a healthy, happy, harmonious relationship.

Lessons I learned from my dog:

"There is no greater sorrow than to recall a time of happiness in misery."

       -- Dante

by Chantale

1.    I learned that when I named him, he was not my property. I was not his master. He was a part of my

       family. This was a privilege and loving him was a commitment as much as it was a responsibility.

       After all--isn't that what love is...

 

2.    I learned that moments make memories and that there are moments to be missed and memories

        never forgotten.

 

3.    I learned that when I gave of myself, my dog gave more.

 

4.    I learned that love is selfless and does no harm.

 

5.    I learned that when I couldn't be there for him, they were the hardest on him and me, but I learned to

       forgive myself.

 

6.    I learned that there is no such thing as closure.

7.    I learned that acceptance is not about forgetting, it's about choosing to honor the memory.

8.   I learned that life sometimes just isn't fair, but that tomorrow  will come and a new day begins.

9.  When Samson died, I felt like apart of me died too, but I  learned to celebrate the legacy he left

     behind because I loved him and he loved me too.

10. I recognize that there are some things I regret I did and some things that I didn't do, but I learned to

      move on and forgive myself.

 

Every year since his passing, I walk his cart and trail the path we often shared, in honor and in memory for what he brought to my life and how he enriched my world, making me a better person. This is how I choose to never forget.

 

What can you do to move forward and honor his or her memory?

Denial helps us to pace our feelings of grief. There is a grace in denial. It is nature's way of letting in only as much as we can handle.
