Myths aren’t just interesting stories. They are pieces of false information that can get us into trouble. Myths form false beliefs that can cause you to act in damaging ways. And there are quite a few myths around marriage.
Each myth can cause problems. But most people believe multiple myths, multiplying the mess.
Myths make assumptions and form ideas. If you believe the myth, the ideas make sense. And the actions based on those ideas make sense.
Except that the underlying assumptions are false.
Which means the actions are faulty.
But the damage is real.
If you know someone (or even belief it yourself) who thinks there is “THE One,” the one person destined to be your spouse — you already know one of these myths. And you may have discovered the damage done. If not, you may discover it down the road.
In this week’s podcast episode, I cover 5 myths. In the next episode, I will cover 5 more.
See if YOU believe any of these myths.
