Does this mean we are all bad people? Of course not. It simply means we are human.
Most of these lies are harmless. You know, the proverbial “little white lie” spoken with the best of intentions. Things like…
“No honey, of course your butt doesn’t look big in those jeans.”
“I LOVE when your parents come and stay with us for the week.”
“Nothing’s wrong. I’m fine sweetie.”
I’m sure you get the point.
But some lies are so big, so pervasive, so utterly destructive, that they can completely sabotage relationships between even the most compatible couples.
It happens all the time. It could be happening to you.
So what are these destructive lies that can tear a relationship apart? Which one is most destructive?
Is it claiming to be in a committed, monogamous relationship when you’re really out seeing other people?
Is it keeping things from your past a secret? Stuff like how many other people you’ve been with or whether or not you’ve been married and divorced previously?
Is it pretending to have the same interests and beliefs as your man just to get him to like you? For example, pretending to love watching football games on Sunday afternoons when really you can’t stand the sport.
Is it saying those three amazing words…“I love you”…just to keep from hurting someone you really aren’t sure about?
These are all really great guesses, but they are all wrong.
These types of lies can certainly be destructive, buy my good friend and world-renowned relationship expert Paige Parker believes there is a different lie which is the number one killer of relationships.
Worst of all, it’s not even told by the man…or the woman…in the relationship. It’s told by SOCIETY and pulled over our heads like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
The Hollywood Myth Keeping You From A Great Relationship With Men
Hollywood has perpetuated this lie for decades. And almost every single one of us seems to buy into it hook, line, and sinker without question or even a second thought.
It sets you up for failure from your very first dating experience.
It sabotages your chance to find “the one”. It keeps you from having the committed relationship you deserve with an amazing man. It creates unhealthy relationships. And it blocks love, passion, and romance and can even cause you to get in your own way when it comes to relationships.
I want you to do something empowering for yourself right now, ok?
In just two easy steps you can change your mind, free yourself from this lie, and finally have true love.
