Loving Sex

Love can grow with time and effort.
We grow up believing that you’re either in love or out of love; there’s nothing in between. And we believe that love is quantifiable and a fixed amount, meaning that you can measure it — “Do you love your partner enough?” — and that what you have in the beginning is all you’ll ever have.

The truth is that real love grows over time. Love begins as an empty garden that requires attention and care, and when it’s thoroughly watered and the weeds are pulled, the flowers will blossom over a lifetime. 



Sex is a sacred act of giving and receiving.

It's sad and often detrimental that we're offered zero guidance about one of the most complicated aspects of being human: our sexuality. We learn from pop culture, peers, and now, increasingly, from pornography, that sex is something you use to gain approval, validation or security.
Healthy sex is none of those things. 

Loving sex is an expression of love, an act of connection where you practice the arts and skill of giving and receiving.

LOVE - YOU HAVE TO NOURISH IT


LOVE

https://gerlinde-keating.pixels.com/products/love-gerlinde-keating-galleria-gk-keating-associates-inc-canvas-print.html

We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. 
You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard 
or just think it's going to get on by itself. 
You've got to keep watering it. 
You've got to really look after it and nurture it. John Lennon

💟  Have a great weekend!

Happiness follows

I am back! I have been driving through The Badlands, Black Hills National Forest and the Custer State Park in South Dakota for 15 days. It is a beautiful countryside.  I took about 900 photos which I will share with you in the near future.

Things Narcissists do

Narcissists think they are the best of all

They think they are always right

They wear a mask or two or three - You can never be sure

They will lie, manipulate, and play with your feelings until they get what they want.
 
They will do anything to make sure that you think they care about you.
They ignore criticism.
When criticized, a narcissist gets hypersensitive and demoralized, which affect his/her big ego. They live to be praised and admired all the time. That is the reason why they run away from people who dare to disturb their peace of mind.
You dare to criticize – you automatically become a hater who must be ignored.

They speak, instead of listening.

They act like drama queens.
Narcissists always seek attention and they do it desperately. They do not think – they act at the moment. Their inappropriate and impulsive behavior affects everybody and creates a toxic environment.

They hurt your feelings.
They lack empathy. They do not pay any attention to what they say to you, whether it causes you pain, and do not care how you might feel in that moment.

They blame and make you feel guilty.
They point a finger at you. You are responsible for everything that happens. They will blame all their problems on others – blaming others make their life easier.

They show off on social media with many pictures of themselves.
 They look for followers and supporters who will admire them unconditionally.

They are obsessed with their physical appearance.
 Narcissists put great effort on their style, they follow trends and do not mind spending lots of money on that. They will do everything that makes them feel superior. They put themselves on the pedestal above all others.
Do not expect to be their number one. You will never have that privilege.


 Enjoy your day!

Beware the dangers of getting too caught up with your online look

AUTUMN LEAVES  - Canvas Print / Photograph by Gerlinde K



Your Body on Display 
Sharing pictures of yourself in various stages of dress, or undress, can result in significant threats to your future relationship and career opportunities, as we know from studies of Facebook exhibitionism. 

To understand why, we need to take a look at the process of "objectification."

In psychology, this term refers to the tendency to treat an individual not as a person with emotions and thoughts, but as a physical being or “object.” In most cases, it refers to thinking of a person not as a door stop, but as a sexual object, there to provide pleasure to others.


An objectified image in this sense would be one that emphasizes the person's sexuality, usually by showing a fair amount of skin. In the majority of cases, objectification refers to the portrayal of a semi-clothed woman's body intended to emphasize her sexuality.


When self-esteem becomes largely dependent on how sexy one looks—and not how intelligent, kind, friendly, or inwardly attractive one is—other problems result, especially in their interactions with the men in their lives, who themselves may have become conditioned to objectify women. Men might treat them with less respect, showing outright or subtle forms of sexism that can range from patronizing mannerisms to verbal or even physical attacks.


Even if you’re not trying to promote yourself in one of these online environments, when you share pictures on Facebook or Instagram, you’re putting yourself on visual display. In doing so, you might try to imagine what your audience is thinking about you. Choosing to upload a photo in a formal suit or a skimpy bathing suit almost begs the question of how others will respond to the way you look. Just sharing your witticisms and insights online is unlikely to carry the same degree of pressure. In objectification, someone’s human qualities recede into the background and the utility that they can provide moves to the foreground. Sexual objectification specifically means that one starts to view others, and perhaps themselves, as, at some level, existing to provide physical gratification. The process is particularly damaging to young women vulnerable to such influences on the development of their identities.– Susan Krauss Whitbourne, PH.D.

 and Brain Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Her latest book is The Search for Fulfillment.
