A Houston Marriage Counselor Explains the Art of Calm Excitement

We tend to think of excitement as the opposite of calm, and that can be a dangerous way of thinking–especially in relationships. To many of us, excitement describes a series short-lived emotions like anger, fear, and passion. In contrast, we see calm as a resting state in between these bursts, a filler in between stimulations.

Our memories reinforce this.  When we think back on our lives, we don’t remember quiet evenings in, we remember the wild nights.  Thinking back to childhood, we recall moments of intensity – good and bad – instead of the vast majority of our lives, during which nothing much at all happened… or at least so it seems.
