marriage counseling for poor sex life

Marlo was willing. I cautioned her that Jack and her children might be upset with her for awhile, because they were used to her being a caretaker, but that if they really loved her and wanted her to be happy, they would end up supporting her in loving herself.

Most of the people I�ve worked with have found that when they are loving to themselves long enough, their whole relationship improves. I can�t guarantee it, but isn�t it worth a try, rather than just giving up?�

family marriage counseling

Marlo was confused between selfishness and self-responsibility. Actually, in their relationship, Jack was the selfish one in expecting Marlo to give herself up to take responsibility for his feelings and needs. By not caring about her own feelings and needs, Marlo was training her children to be selfish as well. They were already learning to blame her for their feelings and expect her to give herself up for them. As soon as Jack or the children would get angry or withdraw, Marlo would feel guilty and responsible and give herself up to do what they wanted.

�Good,� I said. �Now you need to start asking Jesus for information regarding the loving action toward yourself. You do this by asking a question, such as, �Jesus, what would the loving action be toward myself when Jack is angry with me?� or �What is in my highest good when my children are being demanding or disrespectful toward me?� Then imagine what Jesus might say to you. You might have to make it up for awhile, but after awhile you will begin to experience that Jesus is actually answering you. You will begin to experience two-way communication between you and Jesus. Are you willing to try this?�
