Those successful people

  Those successful, accomplished and wealthy people you know don’t necessarily have more qualities or talents than you, but they all have something in common: they dared to believe. They didn’t dwell in the shadows of hesitation. They didn’t ask why or how; they didn’t come up with excuses. They just went ahead, head first. […]

Denying love

  I WAS A MANIPULATOR in my own marriage. Whenever Cristiane upset me, I’d deny her any kind of affection. I’d keep silent, I’d avoid eye contact, I wouldn’t touch her, and I’d try living my life as if I didn’t need her. That was the silent treatment. My goal was to make her eat […]

What did I do?

  Every time I gave Cristiane the silent treatment, it was because I didn’t know how to deal with the anger over something she’d done. Something that would’ve really helped me in those moments was Cristiane asking, “What did I do that upset you?” It wouldn’t change how I dealt with anger (something I only resolved […]
