How To Respond If Your Partner Has Been Sexually Assaulted Or Harassed

It starts with saying, “I believe you.”

News of widespread sexual assault and harassment allegations against film executive Harvey Weinstein has prompted more and more victims to come forward by the day.

Actress and director Asia Argento, one of more than 20 women who have spoken out about their experiences, has had a fierce defender in her camp: Boyfriend Anthony Bourdain.

Most of us are not independently wealthy. And, we often focus on what we need to buy or pay for in order to be happier. This is a good reminder that things that have the most value do not actually have $$ attached to them. When you are feeling discouraged about your financial circumstances, or wishing you were a millionaire, try pausing to think about what you have that can’t bought or sold.

Learn What Is A Midlife Crisis For A Woman

We all go through lives quite busy, juggling multiple tasks and responsibilities. We go to school, have careers, families, and often children. Time speeds past and then one day we wake up and realize, “I am not where I wanted to be!” It is often at this point that a person might find themselves facing tricky choices and problems. So what is a midlife crisis for a woman?

When you ask, “what is a midlife crisis for a woman?” it is important to note that it looks much different than the typical characteristics of a midlife crisis for a man. From actions to relationships, women often behave in ways that are surprising, even to them. And, there are times when the woman experiencing these things is not even aware of how they are behaving.

Failure is one of life’s hidden blessings. Never be afraid to fail. Failure is the root of new ideas and new approaches. Nearly every innovation, every positive change and every element of progress has experienced failure before success. If you never try you will never fail, but you will also never change, grow or succeed either.

I know a woman whose first thought when invited somewhere is, “how can I get through that without falling asleep?” This was not because she was afraid she would be bored, but because she was genuinely tired – all the time.

Our lives are busy and as we age our ability to recharge dwindles. Remember all-nighters in high-school or college? Or staying out until 3 or 4 am with buddies and still having to function the next day? Somehow we made it through that, had fun (generally), and got through our days and weeks in a productive fashion. But, if you are one of the many adults for whom even an occasional late night now throws you off for days, you are not alone.

Do you ever feel like you are just spinning your wheels? We often get into the habit of doing the same things each day and tell ourselves this is the way it is supposed to be. But, sometimes those daily habits do nothing to get us closer to our goals. Every so often it is a good idea to take some time and reevaluate what we are doing and where we are going. If what you are doing isn’t moving you forward maybe it is time to do something different.

If you are having difficulty communicating with someone perhaps you are making some obvious mistakes in your efforts. Take a look at this list and ask yourself if anything you see here routinely creeps into your conversations. Many of us do these things without even realizing it. So, before you assume there is no communicating with certain people, consider whether your approach may need to be modified.

Many things do not work the first time we try them. You didn’t make a million with your first lemonade stand, and many of us don’t lose the weight, quit smoking, get the job, or whatever we are trying for, on the first go around. Failing and retrying with a new plan is one of the best tests of endurance and creativity there is. Don’t give up your goal - just rethink how you are getting there.
