We all love to talk about love, and we likely always will because so much of it is mysterious. From the partners we choose, to why we leave or stay, to how a relationship’s dynamics are always changing, nothing hurts or heals so much.
The notions that passion always peters out, that there’s a “seven-year itch,” and that the honeymoon is over as soon reality sets in have some truth to them. But, our scheduled guest on this week’s CHI FOR YOURSELF says long-term, wholehearted love really IS possible.
Author and couples therapist Linda Carroll explains that love is cyclical and comprised of five distinct stages. She says that the greatest benefit of our intimate relationships is the opportunity they provide to grow and develop as a human being. And she says, everyone can win at love, even when a relationship doesn’t last.
Linda Carroll is the author of Love Cycles: The Five Essential Stages of Lasting Love.
