Next time you run into one of these myths, make sure you remember the truth.
#1. “Happy couples don't Argue.” Even in the best relationships couples have arguments.
#2. “Men don't do emotions.” When one feels safe and you know what questions to ask and how to ask them… watch out!
#3. “Women are more sensitive then men.” Just not true.
#4. “Emotions are irrational.” Oh my goodness they make so much sense, especially in the context of relationships.
#5. “Emotions get in the way of making good decisions.” Dig deep into your primary emotions and they will not get in the way.
#6. “Your thoughts are in charge of your emotions.” The opposite is also actually true.
#7. “Painful feelings are always bad.” If you don't allow yourself to feel the pain, you won't feel your happiness very deeply.
#8. “Experiencing emotion makes it worse.” Actually it can make it better.
#9. “Emotions get in the way of making business decisions.” Again, like #5, only if you are reactive but when you dig deeper into your primary emotions you will find a lot of help making decisions.
#10. “Anger is always bad.” Anger is like the tip of an iceberg and it’s a sure sign that usually under the water is the deeper emotion. It's actually a signal that something deeper is going on.
