Happy Valentine's Day!
"The world will always welcome lovers*....," few as they are!
Too often a mask of happiness and well-being hides widespread stress, anxiety and emptiness. Psychotherapists see this every day, while the culture rationalize, minimize, and denies the truth and reality of it.
The reality of it is that we are very unfulfilled in love and sex in this culture. It is the other side of the coin from the dysfunctional and bizarre modern 21st century society we all live in.....and it is not as much "them" as it is "us," ourselves.
On this Valentine's Day for friends and lovers, ask yourself too, how open to love are You?
