Let’s face it, the world is suffering a crisis that most of us have never experienced before and we are all wondering what this is going to look like when the dust finally settles. We are feeling out of control as we helplessly watch a virus ravage our population. We watch as the economy comes to a screeching halt while the stock market tumbles inevitably into a bear market. Many of us are worried about what this will do to us financially. 401k’s, pensions and all other retirement and investment accounts are at risk and we have no guarantee that the market will recover like it has in the past. But I am not here to talk to you about your retirement or financial statement as I am not a financial expert by any means. Instead, I am here to talk to you about your most valuable asset.
The government and media keep stressing that we must observe social Distancing. That’s not true. We must physically distance ourselves from others, at least by six feet, during the COVID-19 crisis. But it is imperative to connect socially. It is a proven fact that human beings are social creatures and must interact with other people for positive mental health and emotional happiness. Thankfully, we live in a time when we can virtually connect with others in our lives, including neighbors, friends, family, and co-workers. We can even have conversations with people we don’t know and haven’t met in person, possibly making new friends.
While working hard physically ensuring people that it takes patience and planning to go through stressful times, I have also decided to share some thoughts through the incredible vocal website. I truly hope at least one or two of the things you read here; could help you in some ways. First thing I would tell you is that YOU ARE LUCKY!!!, Why you ask? Well, you have what billions of people are using their every breath looking for. Having a partner is the ultimate team that should be able to defeat all problems.
You don’t choose to have cancer. You don’t choose to be born poor, you don’t choose to have parents with criminal records, you don’t choose to be LGBTQ+. You don’t choose to have a physical or mental disability, you don’t choose to be born in an abusive family…you don’t choose all that, but you can choose to be happy. Embrace who you are and be happy — today before tomorrow.

As a sex therapist, I'm used to seeing couples who've lost touch. Couples who have forgotten why they fell in love or why they used to love having sex with other another. Being trained in sexology and psychotherapy, I know all about the different things that keep a relationship alive.
I know you’re thinking I’m about to tell you that you need to let your standards go and just throw your “list” out the window. On the contrary, I think standards are necessary, but I do believe we [human beings] are prone to getting in our own way by standing behind our “preferences.”
On January 22, the seemingly-unthinkable happened: my partner of two-and-a-half years asked me to marry him. Apparently, he's come to the silly conclusion that, despite my daily ridiculousness, he loves me enough to hang around for the next four-to-five decades. His loss? Who can say, but I'm not about to look a gift horse in the proverbial mouth.
Trust! That is a loaded word if you have been through the ringer of events with people you thought would never break you down. Hearing that your family talked bad about you at an event is never fun. Or having a spouse cheat on you is not the best thing to wake up to the next day. What happens if you never trust someone again? Will that feeling of untrusting go away? How can you have love if you don't have trust with anyone?
