LOL YAS @glennondoyle Yes. I have been in a “straight” marriage and a “gay” marriage and I can confirm that mostly both are this. Also, I love my wife. She is golfing right now in her golfing costume and today her costume shirt is purple and I just can’t. She told me that golfing people wish each other luck by saying: “Hit them long and straight!” but honestly this seems both violent and homophobic to me. So this morning I said: “Honey! Propel them long and however they might wish to soar- hopefully fluidly and with a great sense of belonging and freedom and joy!” This is why she doesn’t invite me golfing. This is why I stay home and write words. #snowflakesforever
Here’s a brief very simple exercise for your Wednesday (and you can do this wherever you are - just careful if driving!). Taking one, or both hands, very gently place them over your heart. Feel the touch of@your hand on this part of you - through clothes or skin to skin. Take a moment. Pause. Feel the warmth of your hand there. Now take a breath in. And a breath out. Ask yourself what you are needing or wishing you can hear in this moment. Is it “you are enough?” Or perhaps “you are safe to be here now”. Whatever it may be, no matter how silly, go ahead and say this to yourself. This is a simple act of self compassion and can be done as often as you need at any time of the day. Breath in and breathe out. You are worthy of love! 🙏🏼@ccapsaustin

Amen! @ccapsaustin with Compassionate people ask for what they need. They say no when they need to, and when they say yes, they mean it. They’re compassionate because their boundaries keep them out of resentment. ― Brené Brown
highly recommend! @daxshepard interviews his wife, @kristenanniebell - they go from fighting to liking each other again ☺️ https://armchairexpertpod.com/pods/kristen-bell New hashtag: #ImperfectRelationshipGoals or #RelationshipGoalsForRealPeople Side note: Michael’s rules!!
