 There’s something fundamentallyand psychologically true about theold adage that “opposites attract.”In fact, the most common negativepattern that couples get stuck in is when one partner plays the role of a pursuer, seeking emotional inti-macy. The other plays the role of a distancer, seeking autonomy andspace. When relationships are attheir best, either partner can playeither role on any given day. So when partners become entrappedand consistently have to play thesame roles, it’s often a sign of trou-ble in the relationship.Round and round the cou-ple goes, each partner becomingincreasingly frustrated that theirneeds aren’t being understood orrespected by the other (who hap-pens to need something completelydifferent). This negative cycle tendsto play out repeatedly. It’s presentin arguments about who will cookdinner, in discussions of how thecouple will spend their weekend,and in the struggle for both part-ners to be interested and willing inhaving sex. Different topics, differ-ent days, same negative cycle. The Pursuer-Distancer patternarises for very valid reasons andoften comes to the surface whenthere’s been a major change inthe couple’s life, such as the birthof the first child or a significantfinancial setback. It’s during thesetimes of increased stress that eachpartner is trying to get their indi-vidual needs met under difficultcircumstances. The Pursuer has anundeniable and valid need to feeltheir partner is “letting them in.” The Distancer has an undeniableand valid need to feel their partnerapproves of them and isn’t trying tocontrol or smother them.If this description fits your rela-tionship, you may breathe a sigh of relief that your situation is proba-bly more normal and more commonthan you have ever realized. Thereare highly effective and proven waysin which couples break free of theirPursuer Distancer cycles for good when both partners are willing toget to know one another on a deep-er level through couples therapy.(And yes, couples therapy does costmoney. But the expense is minimal when you compare it to the emo-tional and financial expenses of separation and divorce.)Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy goes to the heart of theseindividual attachment needs andaddresses them more successfullythan any other form of couplestherapy. In fact, research studieshave found that 70-75% of the cou-ples who utilize this type of therapynot only survived their relation-ship crisis but stayed together andreported being happy in the rela-tionship years later. Thirty-percentof Flourish Counseling’s clients arecouples who are working to createmore stable and satisfying rela-tionships. The way in which theirrelationships transform over thecourse of therapy is awesome andheartwarming to witness!

They will offer to swap your porch lightbulb to a compact fluorescent bulb,help you cancel unwanted junk mail,and provide applications for $25street trees, which typically retail for$100 or more. The volunteers will also be ask-ing Berkeley residents to answersix quick questions about how theycurrently get around (e.g. car, bus,bike, walk). This information willbe used by Groundwork Denver tolaunch a new transportation programthis spring that will help northwestDenver residents try out alternativemodes of transportation.If you live in Berkeley and are willingto take the mini Travel Survey, pleasego to www.NWDenverTravelSurvey.org.

If elected as the next state sen-ator representing Senate District34, a top priority will be the econ-omy: making hard choices aboutthe state’s budget, finding waysto increase resources and improveservices, and building a vital jobmarket in the state. As a citizen,it is already a top priority, andone I hope to impact positively inall I do. I have learned there are ways that I can improve the localeconomy today. Bytaking a few simplesteps I can partici-pate in the healingof my communityand in new begin-nings for many whoare currently seek-ing employmentor starting a newbusiness or hop-ing to grow theircurrent enterprise.I share these with you, and I am sure you can add, a few ways in which wecan each partici-pate in the healingof our economy and the vitality of our community to the list.
Buy Local:
We can start withthe power of our own pocket-books. By making the choice toshop and entertain locally, we aresupporting businesses and the jobs they create. A study by CivicsEconomics found that for every$100 spent at a locally ownedbusiness, $68 additional dollarsare added to the local economy,compared to only $43 for every$100 spent at a national chainstore.By shopping locally, we keepour community unique, reduceour impact on the environment,and create local jobs. Did youknow that the small businesscommunity is the largest employ-er nationally? Supporting localbusinesses is a great way to lever-age our tax revenue as well. Localbusinesses require much lessinfrastructure – so fewer state dol-lars support them, leaving morefunds to provide services such aseducation and healthcare. We alsosupport the entrepreneurial spiritof Colorado, building local pros-perity and a business communitythat loves, values, and stays inColorado. Visit www.coloradolo-calfirst.com for more information.
There are many ways to volunteer in our com-munity, but what does it do forour economy? First, it has indi-vidual impact: many careers havebeen launched by volunteeringfirst and getting hired later. Italso has community impact: vol-unteering at a local food bank orshelter means more service canbe delivered to more people intimes of need. Our local nonprofitcommunity serves a wide range of needs and services from hospitalsand hospice care to youth centersand homeless shelters. To pro-vide these services, local nonprofitagencies depend on financial sup-port from individuals, businesses,and foundations to provide servic-es. Unfortunately, as the economyhas suffered, so has the support of these critical agen-cies. Volunteering your time can helpa critical supportagency maintain itsservices in our com-munity. Lastly, theeconomic impactis significant:Colorado’s nonprof-it community is thethird-largest indus-try in the state.Volunteering is asustaining practicefor this industry,leveraging funds with in-kind ser-vices to ensure qualityprogram delivery. There are manyagencies in our community that would welcome your time. Youcan find them at www.metrovol-unteers.org.
Everytime you reuse an item, suchas turning an empty pinto beancan into a pencil jar, you savemoney and the planet. By activelyrecycling and purchasing recy-cled products, we are all helpingto build the new green economy while creating new jobs. Unwantedgoods can be donated to a localagency like www.theARC.org,and consignment stores are agreat place to find a new pairof jeans (our neighborhood hasplenty to choose from, includingthe ClothesHorse on Tennyson).Gently used books can be takento The Bookery Nook which willget them to needy kids and theirfamilies. These efforts put lessstrain on our own pocketbooks,reduce the amount of waste goinginto landfills, create jobs andindustries that can grow and sus-tain our economy, and teach ourchildren and us to be thrifty andto care for the things we have. This article is the second in aseries that will reflect on manysubjects important to our com-munity. Please look for my nextarticle in next month’s edition of the North Denver News. And if  you wish to learn more about me,please visit my website at www.luciaguzman4colorado.com.

Wefeel you should be able to buy thosepink heels for the party Friday andstill afford the champagne.“We believe that the right shoescan change your mood/your day/ your luck. ”Fellows stop and think aboutthat – this is the power you can wield if you learn your way around women’s accessories.May Cupid guide you efforts thisValentine’s Day.***
