July is Black Mental Health Awareness Month and we are shedding light onto the subject of suicide. On average, 122 Americans die by suicide each day. More than 9.4 million adults in the United States had serious thoughts of suicide within the past 12 months. We’re having an intimate conversation as one woman shares her experience of losing a loved due to a suicide and how she and her family learned to heal and move forward from this tragedy. Join me today as we tackle the hard conversation of life after loss.
Women sometimes struggle with understanding what it is a man really wants from her if he attempts to pursue her. At times you may have questioned how does he really feel? How does he really feel about marriage or me? Today’s topic delves even further into the mind of a man as we continue our conversation with our male panel discussing what men really want and how they really think and feel.
One of the biggest things I get in couple’s counseling is that women tend to not understand what a man wants, why he thinks/acts the way he does. Most want to know those answers to not just get a man but to understand him to have a better relationship. While a famous comedian has written a book on ‘how the male mind thinks’ we’re testing it out on today’s show to go inside the mind of a man to find out their needs, wants and desires as it pertains to women and relationships. Whether dating, engaged, or married you may hear something today that helps better the course of your relationship.
Everyone has their own view of what it takes to make them happy as well as the one thing that they cannot tolerate. What makes you tick? Is it something that can be negotiated…or is it a deal breaker? It is important to know your boundaries in relationships. If they don’t exist, it’s time to create them.
In the final segment of our 3 part series we wrap up our conversation as we recognize that communication determines how we connect, how we argue and even how we love. Have you ever felt that the person you love is not loving you the way you need to be loved? If you have ever looked at all the things you have done for those who matter most in your life, or that special someone, and you feel your efforts have not been returned, then it is possible that maybe you are communicating your love for one another in vastly different ways. The way we love is another way in which we communicate giving and receiving love. We end this series discussing the Five Love Languages and the difference it makes in being loved…and feeling loved.
In part 2 of our series we take a deeper look at the importance of communication through various couple cycles as it pertains to patterns of arguing. Do you and your partner have the same cycle? Someone starts the argument, things escalate, one of you wants to discuss it now while the other wants to walk away or discuss it late? Are you arguing about things that don’t seem to matter? Join us as we dig in to the importance of communication even during times of conflict.

While it isn’t impossible to marry without one person having a child from a former relationship, it is highly likely. People don’t realize the stress, uncertainty and difficulty to forge a new family unit. We’ll provide tips and tools to help navigate the process so your family can be perfectly blended.
