Cuddle Hormone

Yeap! They call it cuddle hormone. It is Oxytocin. It has multiple and complicated functions in our body but mainly it helps us to bond and make us “relatable” creatures. It mainly bonds mothers to their babies. It also helps to intensify bonding memories, but both good and bad memories.

It is primarily because of this hormone that we should run away from our ex-boy/girlfriend once we’re married. Otherwise those “love-again” stories may occur like lightening without any warnings because of the good memories oxytocin kept in our memory bank. Make note of that! Continue reading Cuddle Hormone

As Google Maps Does

GPS (the Global Positioning System) is a system that tells us where a certain address is located on this earth. We enter the address of our destination and the GPS will show us exactly how to get there. It gives us a step-by-step direction.
 
GPS has been around for sometimes now but haven’t you seen people who have GPS on their phone or car but don’t even know where they’re driving to?

I Feel So Unattractive

A4P Guest: “I was not overweight before I got married. After I had my two kids, I gained more than 20 pounds and I am still struggling to lose but nothing seems to work. My major problem though is my embarrassment before my husband. I feel like he doesn’t like me anymore because of the extra pounds I put on especially around my belly. I feel so unattractive. I feel exposed whenever I think of sexual intimacy. My husband repeatedly told me that he doesn’t care. Does weight gain affect sexual intimacy? What do I need to do to feel good about myself and enjoy my intimate moments with my husband as I used to?” Continue reading I Feel So Unattractive

“I’m In Love With My Ex”

A4P Guest: Well, I am not sure where to begin. I am married and have a two year old girl. This is my second marriage. I am 35 years old. Yes, I am a born-again Christian. I got married with my second husband three years ago. And I am constantly thinking about my ex. I know this sounds crazy but I can’t stop thinking about him. I am learning about marriage a lot now and I can see clearly how my previous marriage could have been saved had I have known what I know today. Missy, my husband is a nice man but I am not in love with him. I am in love with my ex-husband. I don’t know what to do about that. My ex is married and there is no way for me to get back to him, I know that very well. And I don’t want to hurt my current husband and I don’t want my ex to divorce his wife either. But I have this constant wish that doesn’t leave my mind. I am crying when I type this but let me tell you my deepest wish: I want my ex-husband to call me and tell me that he still loves me. Missy, we used to love each other. I met him when I was 19, I was madly in love with him, so was he, and – – – I think I need to stop. I think I am depressed. I don’t know what to do or where to go. Can you help me?
