Womens Health And Personal Relationships
There has been found to be a correlation between healthy immune
functioning and the health of close, intimate relationships.
A research study has shown that women who experience 'attachment'
insecurities, show reduced activity in the cells that defend
them against illnesses (Journal of Psychosomatic Medicine).
Nobody knows the state of your family health or personal
relationships better than you. Your intimate knowledge,
understanding and awareness of this aspect of your wellness
dimensions make you the expert on knowing what you want,
when you want it and with whom.
That is of course, until your emotions get the better of
you and all your best laid plans go flying out of the window.
You see, when your emotions become involved, it is easy to be
influenced into pursuing a goal you may not truly want.
The Emotional Aspects
Of Womens Health And Personal Relationships
While compromise within close personal relationships
may well be easier when both partners share the same goals.
With the transition of time and the various changes both
will undergo however, what was once a shared goal may no longer
be the case. As a consequence, the dynamics of a personal
relationship will change in line with both parties'
A key issue for some women's health and personal relationships
relate to their treating their partner as an extension of themselves.
Accordingly, it is easy to see how a woman might imagine that what
she want is also what her partner want. Making these kinds of
assumptions however, is walking on very dangerous territory. How
aware are you really, when you ass-u-me? Which, incidentally can be
translated into 'you making an ass out of U and
me - when you-assume-to-know-me'.
Yet, waking up to the reality that a partner has thoughts,
feelings, emotions and goals that are very different to their own
can have a significant impact on womens health and personal
relationship. This in turn can cause a great deal of pain, anguish and even feelings of rejection.
The Consequences Of Womens
Health And Personal Relationships Choices
When considering your womens health and personal relationships
wellness, bear in mind that every decision you make within your
personal relationship, will always have consequences. If you simply
continue to assume rather than communicate, you not only
change the dynamics within a healthy relationship but you run the risk of
overriding your partner's wants and needs too.
It is not too difficult to see how your pursuit of your womens
health and personal relationship ideals, can actually contribute
to such a situation.
At the outset of any personal relationships, both parties tend to
be open about what they want or don't want from the relationship.
For instance, your partner may make it clear s/he don't ever want to
get married or, don't want to have a baby etc.,
Yet, for a variety of reasons one party may harbour notions of
being able to change the other's mind or thinking over time. When
this fails to materialise however, feelings of betrayal, of being
let down or even of being cheated, can arise on both sides. The
fact that clear individual choices have been made at the very
beginning, can get lost, because the boundaries have become blurred. This blurring will not only have a significant impact on womens health and personal relationships, but also on the
other parties concerned.
Making choices is always difficult in such situations, especially
when a woman feel as if she is caught between a rock and a hard place.
However, maintaining the 'status quo' rarely work and will do
nothing to improve your woman's health and personal relationship.
If anything, it will only bring greater pain in the long run. A
woman will either beat up on herself or direct all her frustration,
anger or dis-satisfaction toward your partner.
Central to many women's health and personal relationships, is the
uncanny knack of knowing deep down exactly what it is they want.
Women's own fear however can often suppress their wants. But could
it also be the case that, that which is feared the most is perhaps
the consequences of pursuing what they want?
Your womens health and personal relationships wellness calls for
a great degree of self-honesty. And while facing the situation
honestly may well not change anything, it will force a choice/decision
which, though painful in the short-term, will nevertheless bring a
halt to more longer-term dis-satisfaction and unhappiness.
Womens Health And Personal
What are your womens health and personal relationships goal?
Remember, that your personal goals must focus on the positive
you want to bring into your life. Goals for building relationships
should not involve you
exerting 'control' over another person, nor articulated in
terms of making someone do what you want them to do.
In just the same way your womens health and personal relationship
goals are important to you, you must also recognise the same is
true for your partner. Goals for building relationships cannot
be centred around forcing or bullying someone into
doing something that you want, so do avoid setting goals that
involve 'controlling' or 'blaming' your partner.
Here is an example of what I mean.
Instead of writing your
goal as: 'I want to "make" my partner more considerate of my
needs', own the goal issue, by clearly identifying that what
you need is to improve your skills to communicate more effectively
with your partner. you cannot "make" your partner
listen to you, nor "make" s/he talk to you, nor make them
pay you more attention. Instead, focus on how and what you need
to develop in order to better communicate your needs to your partner.
Similarly, blaming, achieves nothing. When you blame, you
are refusing to own responsibility as well as a commitment to
solution to the challenge you are experiencing. If for instance you
believe that your partner undermines you, you will more than likely write a goal to
that effect. A more constructive goal however, is to set a goal
that reflect your own shortfall and need to become more
assertive with your partner.
The goalsetting advice throughout this site, has been to
set personal health goals based only on what you want and not
what other people want. You might well wonder how is this possible
when setting relationship goals, on account of
there being two people involved. This however, should not
prevent you from articulating your goals, based on your role
in helping to find a solution to any challenges or barriers in
your personal relationship.
Nor should your women's health and personal relationships goal-
setting activity be approached from a 'problem-oriented' mindset.
whether you consider your relationship to be strong or in need of
some TLC, it is a good idea to set some healthy relationships
goals and not simply become complacent.
which incidentally also include family health
goals, need a good dose of focused relationship management.
Whether this will take the form of external relationship advice
or relationship counselling, the fact of the matter is that you
won't know the true state of your personal relationship or the
extent of relationship help you need, without taking action!

"To attract attractive people, you
must be attractive. To attract powerful people, you must be
powerful. To attract committed people, you must be committed.
Instead of going to work on them, you go to work on yourself.
If you become, you can attract". (Jim Rohn)
