Limiting beliefs can definitely impact you individually and also impact your relationship with your spouse. First, let’s talk about what a limiting belief is.
Limiting beliefs are thoughts that hold you back in some way. Thoughts that tell you: “you’re not good enough”, “good things can’t happen for you”, “marriage is destined to be loveless”, this list goes on and on. Basically, limiting beliefs keep you stuck. Stuck believing in something that just isn’t the case!
Limiting Beliefs and Your Marriage
There’s a common belief that I hear often. Couples often say, “I guess after a while, passion just fades and it becomes about other things.”
I want to challenge this limiting belief for a moment. Yes, after being in a marriage for a while things may change. Responsibilities may change. Time together might look different. But, does the passion you have for each other really need to change?
Can you remember why you fell in love in the first place?
Many couples I work with that can recall the story of their becoming a couple have a sparkle in their eye that let the other know they are still loved. They are still the apple of the other’s eye so to speak.
When couples can laugh together, their passion for each other also grows. When they keep each other first in mind and can share thoughts, ideas, and things they’ve experienced throughout the day with each other, passion grows.
