I’ve been with my wonderful husband for 14 years, and I’m delighted with my relationship. Having said that, when I provide dating and relationship coaching, I do find myself reflecting fondly on the last few years of being single before I met David. Back then, I’d learned how to relax about dating, and I was having a great time.
A long time ago, I wrote a column about how to reduce stress. It began by defining stress as our personal, inner reaction to something that we’re experiencing. For example, if you get into a car accident, your way of thinking, understanding, believing, feeling, and determining what must be done about it contribute to how much stress you feel about the situation.
As a counseling intern, I was surprised at the amount of teaching my supervisors wanted me to do with clients. Examples include teaching communication skills to couples, assisting people with making small talk so that they could reduce their loneliness, brainstorming ways to structure and to focus for people with attention problems, and much more.
As I said in my last column about effective resumes, every part of your job application should tell a good, honest story. The point of the exercise is not to tell your whole employment story; tell only the part of it that shows that you’re a great fit for the position.
