Ordinarily, we depend on our partners to help us soften our fears. We seek to console and protect each other from the things that scare us most in life. Our relationship is a safe haven for us to face our worst fears about ourselves, the world, life, and death. If our partner doesn’t share these fears, as a sign of love, they can protect us by standing out front and handling them for us.
In this lesson we'll look at the 10th breakthrough where we'll explore why softening our partner's fears is often what perpetuates them.
So what can we do instead? We'll discover a new and more extraordinary way of relating to ourselves and our partners when we are face to face with our biggest fears.
