Disney and Hollywood sold false expectations of the reality of relationships.
As Alain de Botton says so clearly “..the classic Romantic model has sold us on a number of self-defeating beliefs about the most essential and nuanced experiences of human life: love, infatuation, marriage ..”
Marriage, even in Judaism with the belief in “soul mates,” recognizes that conflict, growth, accepting imperfections, etc. is organic to the relationship itself (a great way to accept imperfection in yourself and others is by owning your shadow parts— “A Simple Way to Drop Judgement, Relieve Tension and Improve Your Relationships”).
Alain de Botton continues “My view of human nature is that all of us are just holding it together in various ways — and that’s okay, and we just need to go easy with one another, knowing that we’re all these incredibly fragile beings.”
Step in the right direction: It’s such a brave act to attempt to partner up with someone and false ideas of how relationships “should be” could lead us away from our loved ones instead of closer together. Step into kindness and compassion for yourself and your partner. Celebrate each other for taking the risk of commitment, love and vulnerability.

“It’s been several weeks now since beginning to work with Miriam, and I’m so happy that I decided to take a chance on somatic healing. Miriam’s grounded, intuitive approach has been most helpful in recognizing and overcoming old patterns of self-sabotage. I can gladly say that the work has had a positive effect both personally and professionally. Thank you, Miriam, for your insightful support and clarity!”

“Many challenging waves of emotions have been arising lately which I felt I did not have outlets or tools to deal with. I felt like all these emotions were sort of stuck within me. Miriam taught me more about my waves of emotions, how to access them, work through them, ride them, and rise above them. Many times emotions can be daunting and frightening to face, but with Miriam’s insightful and practical tools, they allowed me to discover how to manage during emotional challenges to arrive at a deeper and truer place within myself. I am joyful and thankful for all the work we did together and look forward to continue to apply and integrate these wonderful coaching tools. Thank you : )”
