Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
Our ability to interact with others will greatly influence our hotlifestyle. We partake in social intercourse on a daily basis, but are we masters of it?
Our writers will broaden your horizons covering four main topics:
- Digital Interactions
- Professional Interactions
Do you long for a relationship where you feel fulfilled, where your partner inspires and supports you in everything you do? Do you want someone to respect the same values as you do? The truth is that this is rare. This fascinating topic is as broad as it is long. We will be taking an in depth look at what makes a relationship work. Choose your partner carefully. From this one decision will come 90 percent of all your happiness or misery.
There is no escaping communicating with others in a digital format. Whether using SMS, Email, Skype, Social Media or Telephone it has become a part of our everyday life. Are we all coping well with these new forms of chat? Dumping someone for example with an SMS is pretty mean. Sexting on the other hand could land you in trouble should it go viral. Do you know what your digital footprint looks like? We will bring you the do's and don'ts when communicating digitally.
Do you always present yourself in a professional manner when dealing with clients? Do you have the skills how to present ideas to potential investors? The world is changing faster than ever before. Not so long ago you would never attend a meeting without a suit and tie, and now? Networking is vital for the growth of every business and first impressions count.
Intimacy, more than the physical
Each of us has five significant parts of intimacy all requiring attention. We have the physical, the emotional, the mental, the social, and the spiritual. All five of these parts are designed to work together in harmony. One of our problems is that we want "instant" gratification when it comes to intimacy. When the need for intimacy in a relationship is not met, we look for an "instant" solution. Where do we look? Physical, mental, social, emotional or spiritual? It's generally the physical. It is easier to be physically intimate with someone than to be intimate in any of the other four areas. You can become physically intimate with a person of the opposite sex in an hour, or half-hour -- it just depends upon the urge! But you soon discover that sex may only be a temporary relief for a superficial desire. There is a much deeper need that is still unmet.
Today, the word intimacy has taken on sexual connotations. But it is much more than that. It includes all the different dimensions of our lives -- yes, the physical, but also the social, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects as well. Intimacy really means total life sharing. And haven't we all had the desire at one time or another for closeness, for oneness, for sharing our life with someone totally?
The fear of intimacy – afraid to be loved?
Marshall Hodge wrote a book called Your Fear of Love. In it he says, "We all long for moments of expressions of love, closeness and tenderness, but frequently, at the critical point, we often draw back. We are afraid of closeness. We are afraid of love." Later in the same book Hodge states, "The closer you come to somebody, the greater potential there is for pain." It is the fear of pain that often drives us away from finding true intimacy.
Our Mission is to help you make the most of where you live and connect you with others to share practical information, advice and resources.
