Today I learned a lot about myself by listening to a podcast about relationships. I learned that if I am not feeling desire for my partner, it is most likely because I am shut off and not responding to his advances, and not really listening to his needs. It is fascinating to me, because in this area in particular (desire), I have always thought it to be the responsibility of the other partner to “step it up”. I speak of taking responsibility for my emotions, but this is an area in which I was seriously not seeing myself.
This led to my painting, “It Begins With Me”. If I want more desire in my life, then it begins with me. If I want more love in my life, it begins with me. It is time to do my own work, and stop waiting for my partner to take care of it for me.
There are so many more gems in this episode (and all the podcast episodes I have listened to), including research about the 13 actions taken by couples who continue to have vibrant and fulfilling sex lives. I will listen again, and I highly recommend you do, too!
