‘Throwing the baby out with the bathwater’ may also NOT be a “wrong” thing to do for some. And while that is obviously a facetious ‘tongue-in-my-check’ quip, it sets the tone for what I’ve been observing in a proliferating rate over the past several years:

** Folks are putting more priority on their expedited dreams and ambitious ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ quests, mutually-exclusive of growth and adventure while being open to simultaneously building and fine-tuning intimate partnership.

** In a day and age of social media fakery and non-interactive communication (and/or utilizing a medium like this to confess their heartaches — say in lieu of eye-to-eye session with a family marriage counselor or close confidants on the porch over 3 cups of coffee), more and more folks appear confused, dazed, indifferent, and baffled just about what the hell they REALLY want (and/or need), much less what their current mate wants (and/or needs).

Which leads to..

** Our core values, the very specific things we want MORE or LESS of in our lives, do ab-so-lutely need to be inclusive to compromise and negotiation in any Relation-SHIP (whether business-ship, intimate-ship or otherwise).

Thought exercise: Should the relation-ship be considered to come at the expense of those Values… once, and only once, two people try their best to figure out the virtues or legit reasons for having started it in the first place? Or, can it be expendable at the whim or impatience or one person in the equation?

And to bottom-line this: Her reasons are NOT, in spite of her title, why Women (most) leave so-called “good” men.

But, why a man who is deemed with an innocuous label of “good” doesn't really ever KEEP an ambitious, power-chick (empowered, entrepreneurial-minded women) in the first place… a topic I shall write about some other time. ;)
