Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

What’s Wrong With The Current System?
I was discussing with a work colleague today about the future of health and wellbeing. It felt more like a rant about the current conditions in the world relating to health, fitness and wellness. It seems there’s a blurred distinction between being ‘fit’ and ‘healthy’.
In my job and within my industry, individuals and companies are hell-bent on selling you information and products to achieve a flat stomach, lose weight and have you look aesthetically pleasing. I have no problem with people achieving any of these qualities – as long as their pursued with the best interest of the consumer.
Most advice and programs though are sold via the internet or via third-party sources, where there is little or no human interaction and/or communication. The individual is not assessed, no medical records are checked, no blood work is taken and no health history is recorded. You tell them what product or service you wish to purchase, enter your credit card details and presto – instant magic potion appears on your doorstep!
Add to myWE:
This approach is fraught with danger since it implies the ‘one size fits all approach is applicable to the masses. This is the furthest thing from the truth. We all have different needs and requirements in relation to our health and wellbeing. I would never consider buying a fitness or health regime over the internet without first consulting with well-trained health professional.
As stated previously – health is not an event, it is a process. My concern with weight loss centres and clinics, as yet another industry designed to promote weight loss, is the limited focus placed on achieving results immediately. I’ve heard numerous complaints from people who adhered to their strict program – only to regain the weight they initially lost. Weight loss requires that you learn and grow to fine-tune your mind and body’s requirements. It is an ongoing process. I am still learning what works best for me. My body changes every second, so how can I possibly apply a formula to treat it?
The Future is Closer Than We Think.
I believe the future of health and wellbeing lies in Mind-Body centres around the world. People will check in to have their body, mind, emotions, thoughts, movement and exercise and nutrition assessed. A subsequent program tailored toward their needs will be prescribed with thorough intervention along the way to ensure their progress.
The Mind-Body centres will be places where one can learn about stress, emotions thoughts, self-awareness and spirituality. They will learn how these elements impact their health and wellbeing serving one’s long-term success. They will learn to effectively manage these aspects of their life and fine-tune them where necessary. You are an entire being. You have so much beneath the surface which western medicine fails to recognise as relevant to your long-term health.
Weight loss, fitness, health and healing require a greater perspective than selling you a product in the form of a pill or program. People need to be taught how to be mindful of their thoughts and emotions if they wish to effectively maintain their health and wellbeing.
The current model to assist you in losing weight is based on the premise a program or prescription will be adhered to by the individual over the long term. What it fails to recognise is people have bad days. They may have bad weeks. These might include relationships, careers, or financial hardships. Your thoughts and emotions may take a blow during these times, reflected in the way you nurture your health.
Most people do not respond favourably during stressful periods of their lives, often neglecting their health. The need to move into survival mode predominates, as the brain shunts much of its resources away from the relaxed state to a stress state. If you work in a stressed environment and desire to lose weight, it is almost impossible since the stressors in your life outweigh the ability to build muscle and lose fat.
The body is incredibly resilient and ingenious at the same time. It works at maintaining your survival as its most primitive function. It will not allow you to lose weight during stressful periods, since it believes your survival is at risk.
I like the quote at the top of the page by Edison. Who would have thought his prediction all those years ago may just become a reality sometime soon. Holistic wellbeing is an important function of health and wellness. Doctors are now becoming versed in the mind-body connection and homeopathic treatments to better serve their client’s needs. We’ve also seen doctors such as Dr. Don Colbert, Dr. Judith Orloff, Deepak Chopra (a trained endocrinologist), Dr. Dean Ornish and many others embracing spirituality and a holistic perspective in their practice and teachings.
The future of health and wellbeing will have no place for doctors who readily prescribe drugs or Western treatments. It will have no place for drug companies selling you pills, potions, formulas, diets and programs to lose weight ‘instantly.’ There will be no ‘get thin now’ approach to health, as consumers will be open and aware of other aspects of their wellness.
Hopefully, blogs like this one will have opened people’s awareness and understanding to other dimensions of one’s wellbeing. They will be well equipped to know that fitness, health, healing is a journey – not a destination. They will appreciate that they’re an organic organism comprised of many elements; each of which requires attention.
Examine your relationship with your health. Do you believe it’s a quick fix journey or are you in it for the long haul? I can almost assure you if it’s the former, you’ll be on a roller coaster ride for the rest of your life and never achieve the results you truly deserve. You’ll convince yourself in the long run that it’s just not possible to get fit, healthy, ultimately accepting it as a way of life. Either way – as Henry Ford said – you are right!
