Myth Busting for Peace and Happiness

If you are dealing with difficulties in your home and/or romantic life, I feel you. I have been to some really dark places emotionally in my quest for healing soul wound.


Motivated by misplaced intentions, from trying to heal my parent’s broken relationship through my own life (which, many of us do if we know it or not), to trying to “fix” a person who reminded me of my childhood wounds. To this end, there are two beliefs that kept me going amidst the ongoing emotional pain and isolation I was feeling, that I highlight below.

The importance of understanding how myths motivate us is to help us unravel a mirage of falsehoods in order to choose people that we don’t have to fix in order to be happy.


(Trust me: there ARE people out there that reflect your light! The work is to have faith enough to let them in.)


Ultimately, we end up hurting ourselves deeply by keeping people around whom we don’t feel comfortable with or trust. Other people are not our petrie dish. Our own lives are too interesting and beautiful to ignore and there are enough caring people in the world to reflect our light.


If you are stuck in one of these myths right now, I challenge you to write about what the opposite may look like in your life. Set a timer for 5 minutes and imagine that world.

Two Opposing Myths:

1) I need to stick it out in this relationship because the same issues will come up with anyone. This is a chance for a breakthrough, if I can just face my own issues


2) My pain in this relationship is all my partner’s fault and if they would just change, I would be happy.
