The Heroine's Journey, Part 2, The Map

Your confidence has taken a few hits. Maybe a lot of hits. You assigned meaning to the things that happened. The more hurt you are, the more likely you are to believe the worst and prepare for the worst … to try to protect yourself. In that state of mind, you started telling yourself lies … and believing them. Lies like: “I can’t. It’s too hard. I don’t know how. I’ll never figure this out. I’ll don’t have what it takes. I’ll never get what I want. I can’t ask anyone to help me. No one understands. It’s too late. And the most powerful lie of all? No one will ever love me. I don’t deserve love.”

You run everything that happens between you and your husband through that very same filter. The good news is, you can change that filter. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Instead, you’re going to use your Super Power to discover where you are and what's keeping you stranded there.
