Whether we know it or not. Whether we want to admit it or not. We all are running an inner daycare. Our toddler and school-age children are running around inside. Mayhem. Each with his/her own agenda —

“Feed me, feed me.”

“Don’t leave me.”

“Love me.”


“I hate you.”

“I got it. I’ll take over. Watch out.”

“You’re stupid.”

“I’m stupid.”

“I’m the boss.”

Yelling, punching, hitting, strutting, posturing, kissing ass, withdrawing. Saying and doing what they want when they want.

These immature creatures are alive and well in all of us. Our undeveloped parts that need our love and attention. Our leadership and guidance.

But, if you let them take over your relationship life, well … mark your calendar. You will end up alone. If our adult-centered self is not in charge of our love life, then we, our partner and our relationship is doomed.

So, do some inner group therapy. Show who is boss. Get the team on board. Because you got love to make, grow and thrive. And little inner children aren’t equipped for that big of a task.

For the rise of your life …
