why our relationships fail - Robin S. Cohen, Ph.D. How do we first begin to experience love? Perhaps as babies, as early psychoanalysts Fairbairn and Guntrip believed, the only way we could feel loved was by having our needs met. The language of bodily transformation was the language of love. Mommy feeds us, changes our diaper or picks us up and we feel satisfied. This feeling of satisfaction and security may be the early equivalent to feeling loved.
Getting something for free can be a wonderful thing under the right circumstances, but it also has the power to influence the way you think in unfortunate ways. Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational , has studied the power of free in various ways. The findings always seem to point to one thing: foolish and/or irrational decisions.

By Scott Berkun , August 9, 2006 Everyone lies: it’s just a question of how, when and why. From the relationship saving “yes, you do look thin in those pants” to the improbable “your table will be ready in 5 minutes”, manipulating the truth is part of the human condition. Accept it now. I’m positive that given our irrational nature and difficultly accepting tough truths, we’re collectively better off with some of our deceptions. They buffer us from each other (and from ourselves), avoid unnecessary conflicts, and keep the wonderful confusion of our psychologies tucked away from those who don’t care.
