Most of the people I know either love or hate Valentine’s Day. Personally, I’m delighted by red satin, pink hearts and flowers, but not everyone shares that sentiment. A guy at the deli yesterday called it Singles’ Awareness Day and a friend of mine objected, “If you want to give someone a gift, just do it. Don’t wait for a particular day of the year!” I sent her a Valentine’s Day card before I found that out 0:-)
Friends and clients often bring the same problems to me:
- “He’s not emotionally available. Why do I keep dating guys like that? I just want someone who shows up.”
- “At first, he was super sweet and loving, but now I’m realizing he’s a narcissist. I’m not sure how I fell for it."
- “I keep getting triggered by stuff she says. I tell her, but she doesn’t change."
- “I want to make plans with her, but she says she has all this other stuff to do. I want to be the person she prioritizes."
