    Challenging Dangerous Beliefs About Love And Loneliness

    in Relationships

    This edition of Grown Zone Radio focuses on the dangerous beliefs, unhealthy emotions and destructive choices rooted in loneliness. Your beliefs can only do two things: serve you, or sabotage you. Sabotage is inevitable when your choices are driven by falsehoods about loneliness and how to deal with it, including the following:

    Sex is the solution. 

    A new relationship will fix it.

    Alone, I am not enough.

    We not only invite you to challenge those beliefs, but to replace them with those that serve you by producing self-loving emotions of forgiveness, acceptance and compassion. You'll learn that the solution to loneliness is never external, but is, has always been, and will always be within you, determined solely by what you choose to believe.

    You—and likely others you know and care about—really need to tune in to this edition of Grown Zone Radio. Join us to learn why our book Loving In The Grown Zone is not your typical relationship book about finding the love of your life (or just getting a steady sex partner), but about making healthy choices that can lay the foundation for success in love and life.

    Is Loneliness a Choice and How Does Loneliness Affect Us?

    in Motivation

    Liam asked this question about Loneliness; 

    Nadia, I don't know if you have a topic for tomorrow. On this day you feel anything but lonely, it been your birthday but what about those who feel on the periphery of life, suffering with chronic loneliness? I read a Huffpost post about it today and in that post it stated that loneliness is more deadly than obesity. You spoke in todays show about meeting new people and trying new things but for those who feel lonely even around others they can feel isolated from the flock so to speak. What does the truth have to say for the lonely soul? Is it as Christ said in Origins of Truth "They are alone as they have earned" or is that taking those words out of context and there is more to it than that. From my point of view those alone want to be alone yet they suffer and obviously want to feel part of something. Again its not a one sentence answer. How do we deal with the lonely also? Christ said in Origins of Truth that we can welcome those who are without and welcome them into our group and not to blame them for been without (paraphrasing). I remember Christ also said "no-one is meant to be alone, not even those who want to" but as the Huffpost post stated "one in five Americans suffers from persistent loneliness". One in five is a lot not meant to be's Nadia.......................if you want to use this topic feel free.

    Coping with Loss and Loneliness During the Holidays

    in Women

    It's the most wonderful time of the year! Well... maybe not.

    The holidays, with all their goodwill and cheer, may incite unpleasant memories and uncomfortable feelings for you. It's often during this time of year when the focus is all about giving, celebrating and togetherness that you may become more acutely aware of the voids in your life. Perhaps you've experienced a recent loss, such as the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of a job or an opportunity. Maybe it's not loss but loneliness that you feel, and no matter how many parties you attend or how many people you're around, you still feel disconnected.

    If any of this describes you, then you need to tune in today. There is a way to unplug yourself from the dread of the holidays, and my guest, Licensed Psychotherapist, Nettie Jones, is here to help you learn to cope with the voids in your life, particularly during the holidays.
