MYTH: Having to ask for what you want and need from others means weakness.
TRUTH: Understanding what you need and asking for it from your partner means you are courageous, strong, and powerful.
MYTH: Experiencing the feeling of "hopelessness" in your relationship means it is over.
TRUTH: Sometimes you have to arrive at a point of "crisis" in order to move into a new and better place in your life. Sometimes you have to decide to be fed up with the way things have been before you make the choice to do something different. Perhaps you have outgrown your old patterns and you're ready for a new way of connecting.
MYTH: Conflict/Arguments/Disagreements mean that your relationship is doomed.
TRUTH: If you are arguing, it can mean that you are looking for a connection. You are courageously asking to be seen and heard and felt by your partner. Having the bravery to be vulnerable with one another is a beautiful thing. Being willing to fight for your connection is an excellent step towards healing.
