Why Being Your True Self is Your Key to Finding True Love
Bookmark and Share
Do you secretly wish to have a relationship in which you feel loved down to the bone, despite your warts and flaws, fears and failings?

From the time we’re small, we learn to pack away pieces of ourselves in order shield us from the anger, mocking and disapproval of our parents siblings and peers. Before long, we have constructed a watered down version of ourselves.

What happens when we bring our watered down self to the dating scene?

We’re shocked to find that we either can’t attract a partner at all or the relationships we form feel incomplete and lacking in vitality and genuine intimacy. And how can we create a satisfying love relationship when we aren’t bringing our true selves to the table!

Paradoxically, it is only by allowing your true, authentic self to shine through that you will attract someone who loves the real you. And the only way this miracle can happen is for you to first accept and love yourself warts and all!

My special guest this week will be Ken Page. Tune in to find out how to allow the real you to shine through so you can experience the bliss of an intimate love relationship that lasts a lifetime and beyond.

Ken Page
Ken Page, L.C.S.W., is a New York based psychotherapist, author and lecturer specializing in the search for intimacy. He is working on a book entitled Deeper Dating: How Discovering Your Core Gifts Can Lead to Real Love and Personal Fulfillment. A dynamic and inspiring speaker, he has led hundreds of workshops on intimacy and spirituality for thousands of participants of all ages, backgrounds and sexual orientations. He and his work have been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine, Life Magazine, The New York Times, The Advocate, Time Out New York, The Discovery Channel, and in many other places. Five years ago, Ken founded Deeper Dating (www.Deeperdating.com), a successful workshop and meeting event for single people committed to deeper values. Page teaches that our “core gifts” are the most direct path to love and a sense of mission. Core gifts aren't the same as talents or skills. They are the places of our deepest sensitivity, longing and passion—which is why our most painful wounds and insecurities surround them. Page's Gift Theory explores the crucial relationship between our gifts and wounds, and teaches ways of understanding and liberating those gifts which live at the core of our authentic self.
