love & relationships
Why do relationships deteriorate over time? What causes people to disconnect and drift apart? I’m not just talking about intimate relationships between married couples and partners; I’m talking about all relationships. What is causing this epidemic of disconnection? Why can’t we maintain a deep connection with the people in our lives? I’ll tell you why.
If you have an important issue that you need to discuss with a person you’re in a relationship with, BUT you’re worried about how they will react, you’re not alone.
I’m about to bring up a subject matter that even today still turns adults into tweens. Ready? Here it is. I want to talk to you about your sex life.
In today’s world, not even Calgon (bath bubbles) can take you away from the dating scene. It’s all right there, constantly being played out for you on your Facebook and Instagram feeds. Maybe your last relationship ended a few months ago. Maybe it was a few years ago. Maybe you’re just feeling ready to step out again. You’re over the hurt feelings, you dealt with your part in the breakup gracefully and maturely, and you even learned a lot along the way. It’s empowering to know that you can put any situation in the rear view mirror. You’re ready for what’s next...until nothing happens.
Let me let you in on a secret… everyone is so hung up on love! It’s one of the top concerns I hear from my clients–otherwise successful people who feel like they’re utterly failing at it. Luckily, love is one of my favorite things to coach! I love to unravel people’s thought patterns, sort through all the competing “voices” in their heads, and help them face the truth so they can make the change.
Everyone wants to fall in love. Everyone wants a great love story. If you are single and reading this right now and wanting to find the one: you are not alone. As a matter of fact, the #1 question searched on Google at the moment is: “What is Love?”You are not going to figure out love by reading a definition on Google. Where should you look? In the mirror. YOU are the reason you haven’t found true love.
If we had three words to describe Lauren Zander it would be insightful, compelling, and brutally honest in the best way (okay, that’s more than three words, but that’s besides the point). Lauren is a life coach and most recently, the giver of valuable advice and laugh-out-loud moments at one of our recent gatherings. In fact, we loved her so much (and we heard you did too!), that she is officially launching a monthly column with us here at the void. On the first Thursday of each month, you can head right here to the-void.com for her no-holds-barred, candid conversation on everything from dating the right way to keeping things fun and spicy in those long-term relationships. Here is a sneak peek at Lauren's upcoming guest column!
