How I became a friend to myself

How I became a friend to myself

My best friend attempted suicide and later would never talk to me again. She was my best friend in college.  We studied together, played together and spent lots of time at each other's place. Sometimes my mom and brother would even mistaken her for me. We were so close like sisters. One day, she told me she wanted to kill herself. I panicked. And tried to talked her out of it. She kept talking about it and this type of suicide talk lasted for one to two years, and she never gave up talking about suicide. I was exhausted. I had my share of problems in my life at that time and I started to ignore what she said. I told myself, "It's crazy talk" and I should leave it as that. One day, her mom rushed to my place and told me, she attempted suicide and was sent to the hospital. Before that day, my friend had already told me how she had planned her suicide -- how she would check into a hotel, with a bottle of liquor and sleeping pills, and how she would instruct the hotel staff not to interrupt her while she can take her own life. I did not pay attention -- I had listened to her talking about suicide for thousands of times! She did not die. The hospital staff revived her. But after that, she totally changed. Her personality changed and when I would visit her, she became very cold. One day, she said, "Let's stop seeing each other" and I would never talk to or see her ever again. I was devastated. I only thought about the things I could have done to help her. And in my mind, I kept thinking "I did not do enough."  I kept thinking that maybe she expected me to stop her or expected me to help her get out of her pain, and that I had failed completely. I felt guilty and remorseful I had let this happened. I have lost one of my very best friends in life. This grief stayed with me for many years. As I study, learn and help myself continuously, I finally understand the mistakes I have made in this relationship. In addition to recognizing how much more I could contribute to this relationship, I realize a bigger truth: I was not honest. I did not tell her I could not stand her suicide talk, and that I had no energy left to keep on trying to stop her and I had no inclination to live a pessimistic life with her. If she had known about my true feelings in the beginning, she would not have hated me for not stopping her suicide. I still feel sad to lose her as a friend. But through this incident, I have at least helped myself as a friend! I see this in marriages and I see this in familial relationships. We think that it is better to "lie" because of not wanting to hurt our loved ones.  But we live with untruths -- and we betray our own feelings. We feel regretful and remorseful for not giving enough. We have neglected others. Yet, the biggest neglect usually is towards ourselves. When I created the Love Seminar, I have wanted to teach men and women to experience a richer relationship with their loved ones. But there is one more reason why I design it. That is, I wish to teach an individual how to be the best friend to himself or herself. Your spouse or friend or partner or parents or a bigger salary or a bigger house cannot take away the wounds and pain you have experienced in your life. This is also why changing a partner as in a divorce does not always solve the problem. There is only one person who can dissolve the pain: YOU. And it starts by willing to become the best supporter, the best friend you can be -- towards yourself! The journey of non-stop self-improvement is the very best journey I have embarked...

Love is an ability that can be learned, says relationship expert Hellen Chen

Love is an ability that can be learned, says relationship expert Hellen Chen

Three times #1 bestselling author and relationship master Hellen Chen has helped at least 100 singles who had been skeptical about marriage to find their true love and to walk down the aisle. With a philosophy that love is an "ability" that can be improved, she travels the world to counsel singles and couples on what it takes to keep a relationship lasting and deep. Her popular Love Seminar will be coming to Los Angeles at the Hilton Hotel on May 23 Saturday. A statement that Chen has heard over and over again from men and women who were unhappy in their relationships has been "If only my partner can change for me..." "Many singles think that their biggest problem is not able to meet the right person. But the more precise reason is they don't even know who the right person is." said Chen, "They know what kind of person they like or dislike. However, it does not mean the person they like is right for them." "Many men and women entered into marriage with the idea that they could change the behavior of their partner." Chen added, "That's wrongful thinking and the relationship often ends up in disaster." She encouraged singles to not spend time and money and energy to go around dating but to look for someone who seriously want to enter marriage. When asked about why dating a lot to find the right partner does not work, Chen explained in a recent Fox TV interview, "When people date a lot before they get married, their hearts get broken once too often and these bad experiences accumulate. These bad experiences even carry into their marriage and the moment they encounter seemingly insurmountable hardships in the relationship, they break-off easily as they think the next gal or guy would be better." According to Chen, a marriage is not about what another person could give to self but a chance for self to learn how to give to another. Believing that most individuals do want a loving relationship, Chen started lecturing and writing books about the subject. As a bestselling author, she has written 25 books and her book "The Matchmaker of the Century" and "Hellen Chen's Love Seminar" became number one bestsellers in relationship books at Barnes and Noble. Chen's works in family, marriage and personal developments are featured in over 200 media publications in 20 countries. She has been a frequent guest on independent and network radio and TV shows on FOX, CBS, NBC and ABC etc. To help singles and couples develop the ability to love, Chen has released a whole series of love workshops in Asia and in America. This upcoming event "Hellen Chen's Love Seminar" on Saturday May 23 at Hilton Hotel in San Gabriel city is the 12th workshop Chen will be conducting in Los Angeles. For more information about the workshop, please contact 800-912-0510 or visit...

Hellen Chen’s Love Seminar Teaches Men and Women to Not Waste Time in Dating – Houston Style Magazine

Having written 25 books on the subject of relationships and personal improvement, bestselling author and matchmaker extraordinaire Hellen Chen travels the world lecturing tens of thousands of men and women on how to experience a "happily ever after" relationship with their partners. On March 21st, she is arriving in Los Angeles to deliver a special seminar on love and relationships. Chen's famous advice of "marriage first, date later" is a shocker for most who are used to the concept of dating carefully first before selecting the right partner for marriage. This unconventional matchmaker has however used this philosophy to successfully match couples together who then stay together. She encourages singles not to spend time, money and energy going around dating, but rather to look for someone who seriously wants to get married. When asked about why modern dating is deterring men and women from reaching their relationship goal, Chen explained in a recent interview, "90% of dating ends in breakups. When a person accumulates too many breakup experiences, they tend to believe having a lasting relationship is all about having a right person. Yet many people do not even know what a right partner is. " Having been married for over 20 years, Chen shared her personal experience, "Instead of putting all your eggs in one basket of trying to find a perfect partner, why not learn how to be a Mr or Ms Right yourself?" To bring her message about managing love and relationships, Chen had given over 200 international media interviews, has publications in 20 countries and also actively holds training workshops to teach singles and couples how to improve the quality of love in their life. Her workshop "Hellen Chen's Love Seminar" helps working professionals have a lasting relationship and is open to both singles and married individuals. Her next event will be held in Los Angeles on March 21. For registration details, please call 800-912-0510 or visit...

Hellen Chen’s 10th Love Seminar in LA Was a Great Success

[metaslider id=2394]   Our Dec 27th 2014 seminar is our 10th seminar event in Los Angeles. Hellen brought up a very special viewpoint on "promotion." Business people know that marketing and promotion create sales and income. But how about in the area of love? How does one attract and find the right partner? In a marriage, how does one rekindle the passion to love no matter how many years one has been married? What I like most about today's seminar is learning how to promote myself to another person. I have never heard a speech on marriage that is so funny and effective! -- T.W I learned how to talk to my husband and make him feel loved. At the same time, I learn how to admire my good points and become more confident and comfortable with myself. I am more able to love myself. I am more able to love others. -- A.L I like the focus on "promotion." I have always hated to talk about myself but now I see how necessary it is. -- G.M With the exercises in the workshop, I increased so much more confidence about myself and I can enjoy talking about my good points. I am able to create attraction and feel more passionate and free. -- V.C. I see more and more of my good points. In the past, I always thought these "good points" are not important. So I tried to cover them up. Actually I do have good points which others don't have. Today I learn how to appreciate myself! I also find out the reason my relationship has not gone well is not because I am not attractive enough. But I have not let my other half know what I'm doing. This time I overcome the barrier of "promoting" myself. I increase my confidence, and thus also have a greater love to give to the people around me! -- A.C.     To love and be loved is an ability! Learn more on how you can increase your ability to love!  ...
