DEAR HARRIETTE: I recently started talking to an old flame. She really does it for me, but she has rejected my advances up until a few days ago.
We spoke on the phone for hours about everything going on in each other’s lives. We ended the conversation professing our love for each other.
The next day, I asked to see her in person, and she said she was not ready to see me. This really confuses me because she professed her love for me. What does this mean?
DEAR FEELING GHOSTED: Slow down. You cannot force this woman to jump all the way back in with you.

I doubt myself and my abilities whenever I make a mistake in any area of my life. If I miss my kids’ games, I feel like the worst parent in the world, and if I miss a work deadline, I feel like I’ll surely be fired soon.
How can I get a grip on my emotions and stop my mind from spiraling out of control about everything?
DEAR WORRIED WORRIER: Slow down and take three deep breaths. Invite yourself to be calm. Breathe quietly, and just be still. Tell yourself that everything is going to be all right. Sit for a few minutes until you feel the tension leaving your body. Start your day with stillness, even if it means you have to get up a bit earlier to do so.
Make a plan. If you are consistently missing deadlines or activities, one …read more
