Self-Validating Intimacy: North Carolina Psychologist Breaks New Ground in an Exclusive Interview with Rosen Law Firm about Staying Happily Married(February 15, 2013)
Charlotte, North Carolina (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
Accepting whats called self-validating intimacy is key to ensuring the fire in your relationship stays kindled, according to Dr. David Aspenson, in an exclusive interview with Anna Riley of Rosen Law Firm. Aspenson, a North Carolina psychologist who helps couples create and maintain healthy marriages, says that self-validating intimacy and passion of all kindsnot just intimateare part of an overall recipe for success.
To say that were passionate about something just means that its something that matters to us very deeply So a passionate relationship is a kind of living organism. Its an ongoing experience of vitality and the authentic intimacy that provides the real juice of a relationship, Aspenson said in his interview, which was part of a weekly series of marriage self-help podcasts on StayHappilyMarried.com.
A lack of passion in any arena can wear couples down over time, and some relationships deteriorate faster than others. Aspenson recommends couples look within and take active steps to change things before they end up talking to a North Carolina divorce lawyer. He also suggests that self-validating intimacy is crucial to maintaining a truly healthy relationship.
Whats required for the long-term is the ability to say, Im just going to, in a sense, give myself to you. Im going to tell you my truth; Im going to bring my own precious vulnerability into this connection. And Im going to take care of myself at the same time. In other words, Im not really demanding that you make that okay for me, said Aspenson.
Studies show that most people expect reciprocal validation, which is a far cry from self-validating intimacy. Its not always about what your partner is doing for you; often, its what you and your partner find in yourselves and bring together as a new whole. Although its a new term, self-validating intimacy is an old concept thats helped many marriages survive over several decades.
