Adaptability Is Important to Mental Health

Life is dynamic and constantly changing. Consequently, human beings have evolved to be dynamic, kinetic creatures, who from the time we are born until we die are in a perpetual state of adaptation and development. We were not the strongest, fastest, or biggest land-dwelling creatures, but we are now the dominant species on earth by virtue of our capacity to develop and adapt. Adaptability is not only important, but it is also vital for mental health and overall well-being.

3 Signs Someone Is Emotionally Unavailable

Interview: Dr. Colleen Cira, Psy.D.

Dr. Colleen Cira is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in Women and Trauma, and has worked with hundreds of people struggling with their relationships and maladaptive relationship patterns, including emotional unavailability.

What Dr. Cira can say in an interview about
Emotional Unavailability:

Being in a relationship with someone who is emotionally unavailable can be a painful experience. Here are three signs that indicate someone is emotionally unavailable:

1) Inconsistent communication. When someone is genuinely ready for a relationship, they aren’t going to play games. They are going to be honest and direct, they will make an effort to see you and they will expect you to do the same. So when someone is being inconsistent in any number of ways: taking forever to respond to you at one point, but immediately replies at another point; being vague about their level of commitment to you and the relationship; seeming to avoid certain topics, etc, something is up. Gently confront them about their inconsistencies, from a place of genuine curiosity, but if they can’t/won’t acknowledge what’s going on and talk to you about it, move on.

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Domestic Violence as it pertains to the Gabby Petito story:

    • Shocking that this case has revealed that NOTHING has changed in our awareness of domestic violence and perpetrator terrorists of violence since Nicole Brown Simpson was killed. No American culture or internal police knowledge has changed, so women are still dying at a rate of 84% of all female homicides. These murders are actually FEMICIDES (the name for women partner violence that turns to murder) at the hand of a previous or current partner, love interest, or someone the woman knowingly and willingly let her into her life.
