RD&T’s contributing writer, Edie Weinstein, shares her relationship journey and how the phrase, “Honey, I’m Home” has taken on new meaning.
As the change of seasons is occurring, a crisp Fall nip is in the air here in beautiful Bucks County, PA. When this journey began with relationship coach Lori Ann Davis who appears in the series called Radical Dating, it was Springtime and blossoms were ripening and opening on both the trees and in my life. I was excited and a bit nervous about developing more than a casual interest and leaving to random chance, the prospect of meeting someone with whom I could create a long-term partnership. As a therapist, journalist, minister and presenter whose work is all about relationships, I questioned how it could possibly be all theoretical. When I examine my life, I am grateful that I have wonderful family and friends who are my treasures. I get to do work that I love. I have exciting adventures to go on. I have a seemingly never-ending source of inspiration. I am taking better care of myself than ever before, following a series of health crises. I am aware of all the love that surrounds me, even if I don’t always take it in. And in the midst of all of that, there is is this overarching, “and yet….” (she sighs wistfully) I desire a partner to share this with me.
