What lies beneath

Eminé Rushton shares her awakening; the dawning recognition that her mind and body are telling her the same thing: the way to a more contented state of being

T here are two mes, says my husband. The light-filled, laughing, open, people-person me – so full of love it sometimes feels uncontainable; and the other me, drawn like a crazy cartoonish magnet to all of life’s niggling uncertainty and darkness. I know it’s normal to be negative at times, and that life will not always be golden. I’m not seeking gold – the rainbow is glorious enough – but, too often, the colour of life is drained away by the non-living stuff– the ironing pile, the layer of dust, the creeping overdraft… too many arguments, too many ‘it’ll be better tomorrows’. It’s that old definition of madness: doing the same thing, over and over again, expecting a different result.

About Psychologies

It’s all about love this month. In our 18-page Dossier we look at the reality of making your relationships work once the rush of lust wears off. We encourage you to choose to love each other, imperfections and all. For those who are struggling, we’re giving away our 30-day ‘How to save your relationship’ online course with relationship expert Sarah Abell– worth £47. We are also looking at how to navigate bringing up teenage children with our coaching columnist Kim Morgan, plus discover a new way to deal with grief - over dinner! Gratitude is the theme of our special gift guide for Christmas and beyond. We’ve partnered with Etsy, our favourite online portal for unique gifts made with love. Who and what are you grateful for this month?
