My Top 3 Articles About Relationships

This article shares a selection of my top 3 articles about relationships with others, sex, intimacy and most importantly – the relationship you’re having with yourself.

It’s late… Way too late. It’s 00.30am here in Amsterdam as I’m writing these lines – It was an intense day, packed with awesomeness. This week I’m attending the Integral Coaching Academy – A way to get better in my craft as a coach. Day one is over. It was absolutely amazing. I’m blown away. And after the session I just couldn’t resist to meet up with the amazing people here. I love this city, I love the people, I love the vibe here… (maybe I’m considering moving here?) I just felt so warmly welcomed since I arrived 3 days ago – but that’s not todays context ;)

Todays article will be a bit different. When I’m writing my articles, I love to dive into the topics, reflect on them, ask others about their point of view, zooming out and creating a great and understandable frame for you. As you can imagine, I’m challenged today, as I have literally no time to get deep into a topic.

Anyways, this is a great opportunity to reflect back on past articles and I’d love to share with you my 3 besties around relationships and self-awareness.

1. Sex – Where Society Fails

Sex, I love that topic. And the people love it too. It’s in fact the article with the most reads on my blog. And it’s a topic we talk about too rarely. It’s a topic where people hold back expressing themselves. “It’s not appropriate”.

At the same time, there is SO MUCH stress, anxiety, pain, fear, confusion around this.

I would love to see a world where people actually ENJOY sex to the fullest. Where people can truly connect. Where they create a tantric one-ness with each other. Where people allow themselves to MAKE LOVE.

This article is one of my personal favourites. And it was written in one go – purely from my heart. How society misunderstands the topic SEX and how we can experience amazing sex with each other. Enjoy.


2. The 3 Basic Human Needs In A Relationship

While writing this article I was going through a break up. Uh yes. That was painful… But it gave me incredible insights about the ‘needs’ in a relationship.

There’s no challenge without a gift for you.

And that experience, as painful as it was at that time brought me an incredible gift. I learned so much about myself, about others and about RELATIONSHIPS.

Understanding those core needs, helps us to understand others, and hopefully you will also understand yourself a bit more…


3. How To Deal With Emotional Pain

And last but not least (actually I got so much value out of that article – while writing it by myself), how to deal with emotional pain – Or: The relationship I’m having with myself.

That article came out just a week later than the one above – And yes, my heart was still broken. The last time such a heartbreak happened was when I was a teenager – and I almost forgot how painful it can be.

But there had to be a gift in that pain. So I asked myself the question: How to deal with that sh*t? :)

As I mentioned above, while writing this article I discovered so many blindspots about myself. How I held myself back. How I suffered. I was a victim. And then I learned such an incredible life-lesson, how to take this piece of pain and use it for something incredibly beautiful.

Or how Carrie Fisher would put it:

Take your broken heart and turn it into art.

This article is about dealing with pain. Pain is something we all experience – but suffering is a choice.

I love to share my insights with you and I love to hear your opinion, struggles, insights and questions. Let’s make this a bit more interactive, as I’m sharing a bit less this week! ;)

It’s so great to have you here, and I’m so grateful to see the numbers of readers growing and growing, week by week.
