These 7 Limiting Beliefs Are Sabotaging Your Marriage

Marriage should not be the cause of pain and suffering. Or at least, should not ONLY be a cause of pain and suffering.

Your relationship should also be a source of great energy and joy and should be enhancing and boosting our life. It should make life easier and more enjoyable, having this companion and life partner by our side.

But so often I’m seeing the opposite. Instead of being mostly good with some small challenges, I’m seeing big challenges and lots of stress, with very little joy. 

Listen to The Parenting Junkie Show Podcast

In this episode, I want to take you through a set of common beliefs about marriage, and why I think they’re wrong.  




[04:27] Limiting belief #1: Marriages don’t work out.

[09:12] Limiting belief #2: The ONLY way to improve your relationship is with counseling.

[15:01] Limiting belief #3: You chose the wrong partner.

[22:56] Limiting belief #4: My partner will never change.

[26:46] Limiting belief #5: It would be easier alone.

[32:26] Limiting belief #6: I’m too tired and/or busy to do ALL the work.

[44:02] Limiting belief #7: What if I try and it doesn’t work? 

[46:52] Marriage is like Mt. Everest.

[50:10] So how do you do it? What do you do to build the relationship of your dreams?
